  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I'm Always Cold

    I was talking to my nutritionalist about my wife being cold all the time. She said that iodine could be a problem. When my wife did the iodine test, it disappeared in about three hours. It is supposed to take 24 hours to disappear. Maybe you are iodine deficient. The two way she suggested finding out were with iodine for the drug store and taking your basil temperature under your arm pit first thing in the morning. On the first, put the iodine on the top of your wrist. It should be about a quarter size spot. If it is gone in less then 24 hours the you are lacking iodine. On the second, if your temperature is low, under 98.6 that is also a sign. The first iodine test has info available on the net. Just Google it. I was surprised at what I found out. Hope this helps.
  3. I wish I was as good as our kids. My 7 year old is gluten-free by choice. Once in a great while he will get upset about not eating something, but the rest of the time, he will police himself. Around Halloween, he got a cupcake at school. He wasn't sure if he should eat it so he waited until I picked him up and asked if he could have it. When I told him no, he just said oh well and threw it away. I was the one left wanting it. Anyway, I guess kids know what makes them feel better. We should all learn.
  4. My wife made these for me and our kids tonight. They are awesome. I ate until I got a stomach ache. We used gluten-free oats and WOW. Anyone that says gluten-free doesn't taste good needs to try these. Thank you for sharing the recipe with us.
  5. Vodka's

    As one that is allergic to brewers yeast, I have to be careful on which ones I drink. Absolute was very helpful in telling me the the gluten and yeast are filter out in the process on how it is made. That being said, I have had my best luck with Grey Goose for not feeling lousy the next day. It is expensive, but I feel I am worth it. Plus, all healthy for us food is expensive. If you are an occasional the expense is worth it. I mix it with a low sugar cranberry juice. That way it is healthy. Good luck and enjoy.
  6. Princess Cruise

    We are going on a Princess Cruise over Christmas and were wondering if we were allowed to take food on the ship. We have faxed them about our special needs, but were wondering about snacks. If anyone knows anything that can help we would appreciate it.
  7. Kix Cereal

    The only cereal that is gluten free are fruity and cocoa pebbles. There is also a Dora the Explorer cereal that I have heard is gluten free. My wife makes cocoa pebbles crispy treats that are awesome. She makes them just like rice crispy treats.
  8. It is nice to know I am not alone. This is the exact reaction that I get. It is a motivator to not eat gluten. My employees at work always comment how different I am when I have been glutened. The worst part is all the worrying I do. Things that don't even matter. It takes so much effort to control myself, I usually just kind of disappear. Thanks for letting me know I am not alone.
  9. Sinus Issues Caused By Gluten - Help !

    Along with gluten, I am allergic to brewer's yeast. On the occasion I do drink, I always have plugged sinuses the next day. I also have the joint pain. I take 1 Allegra-d and 4 advil. It clears it up pretty quickly. In case you are wondering, my wife was told that taking 4 advil is ok once in a while(pms). Since I found out about all of food allergies, I don't have any sinus issues.
  10. Pain In Muscles - Real Or Imagined

    I had this same problem. My muscles hurt all the time. I used to lift weights, and for a long time, I couldn't even think about that without pain. Going gluten free helped, but finding out everything else I am allergic to really helped. I have a lot of food allergies and getting off all the food really made a difference. I an starting to work out a couple of days a week, and I have been able to ride my bicycle about three hundred miles this summer. It has also help with how fast I can ride my bike. Before getting off the food, I was averaging around 8 mph, now I am up to 14 mph. I know that the food allergies were holding me back. I would suggest a full food allergy test just to see what else might be bothering you.
  11. I have been fighting with depression for a while. When I realized I had celiac(with no help from doctors) I thought that would fix it. It did some. Then I had a ELISA blood test done for 128 food allergies. The problem I had was that after I went gluten-free, I was still eating foods that were dangerous to me. The hard part is that it is healthy foods that I can't eat. Lettuce, Tomatoes, Cucumber, beef, And several others. Since I have gotten off of the other foods, I feel much better. The doctor that helped me do the blood test said that celiacs have far more the just gluten allergies and in my case he was right. My suggestion is to find out all the food allergies that one has and then make the decision from there. For me personally, I have had bad experiences with the medication, but that doesn't mean that it won't work for others. Just make sure to either do the research yourself, or if you are lucky enough like me, have someone help you. Just remember one thing there is no shame in the decision that you make for yourself. I have been three years actively searching my solutions, and I am still not sure if I have found them all. Good luck to all who need it.
  12. As a husband who has celiac, you are a great wife and mother. My wife is in the same situation. Our problem was that once I went gluten-free, I have since found out that most of the food we were eating I am also allergic to. She felt so defeated. I truly feel bad for her, but appreciate her for all she has done. It is a steep learning curve. Like you our 7 year old is doing much better on a gluten-free diet and my wife is stressed out about school. I keep telling her to relax. Women like you two are treasures that need to be cherished. The fact that you care enough to make it a priority shows that you both will get through. Her is an example of how awesome my wife is doing. After I went gluten-free we were making pizza with tomato sauce and gluten-free crust. Since my blood test showed I am allergic to tomatoes I thought that pizza was done. Last night she comes up with a pizza that was one of the best I ever had. She used the gluten-free crust, giardiniera and fresh grated cheese. I was so happy.
  13. Tummy Discomfort And Excersize

    I have this problem when I run. If I ride my bicycle, it doesn't seem to happen. I have also noticed that after I run and get the pain, I have to go to the bathroom. It seems to me that the running helps get things moving. It makes me feel a little better that I am not alone. This has only started since I have been gluten free.
  14. Car insurance. To me this is the perfect solution. The worse the driver the higher the premium. I have had weight issues my whole life. I am currently obese. I am at fault for it. The diet that is required for me to stay skinny, was to difficult to stay on. That is one else's fault but my own. This is my hand and my choice. I am currently (paying out of my own pocket, as I should) getting blood work done to find out exactly what I can and can't eat. Now, all this being said, as I am currently a higher risk, I should pay more. Once I take it upon myself to fix the problem, then part of the reward is lower rates. This is how car insurance is run. Also, car insurance doesn't pay for maintenance. To answer the question I will not see the film. I understand what he is supposedly trying to do, but all I see him doing is making a profit that does nothing to help anyone.
  15. I have heard that MSG is bad for us celiac's and I've heard that it is not bad for us. Does anyone here know. It would help us with our son.
