  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Have you considered taking her to a naturopathic doctor and maybe trying a saliva test for celiacs? I have been diagnosed this way and was off gluten for 2 months before the test. I tested extremely high positive and the naturopath says he sees alot of false responses from the blood work and the endoscopy you have to be on gluten for as well. Maybe something to consider. I would try her on a gluten free diet and see. As well she could be reacting to soy,dairy,citrus and eggs. These are all things i also have to be off of with the celiacs. Good luck!!!!!
  3. I still love the smell of baked goods but i get itchy from the inside out smelling it. i don't think it's imagined. just depends on how sensitive some people are to it.
  4. can i react to baking ingredients like flour and such if i am baking for my kids????
  5. i have never done the elimination diet,,,was tested for other food allergies along with bloodwork and a saliva test with ny naturopath.I am gluten-free,soy-free,dairy-free and egg free. I have only been doing this about 2 months and am feeling so much better,,hang in there.
  6. Hi i am a new member as well. Thought I would share with you what I've read about spirits. Vodka is started with grain mash,,so is not safe. Potato vodka is okay and a brand called belvedere, I have tried. Rye,whisky ,,all grains and wheats. Rum is from cane sugar and is okay,,as is tequila,most wines if not fortified are good as well,and i hear vermouthand cognac and sake is also okay.
  7. I have had a very strong reaction the their fries,,I believe it was a cross-contamination thing. since that was all i had had so far that day besides a coffee,,,pretty positive it was mac's.
  8. Recently i was using up to a bottle of benadryl every other day,until I went completely gluten free,,soy free,milk and dairy free and a host of other things. Is this normal and do we have to carry it with us at all times?
  9. Have you considered seeing a naturopathic doctor??? i just tested positive for celiacs through blood work and a saliva test. My levels were extemelely positive even though i have been gluten free for 2 months. i agree with the rest,,,don't do that to your body. There are alternatives,,,good luck
  10. Thanks Patti,,,all things i had not thought about
  11. That is great advice,,,thank you so much. i am still reacting slightly to things,but not enough to be on the Benadryl. I will definitely reorganize my kitchen. what are some of the different reactions, do u know?
  12. I was also misdiagnosed years ago, I am currently seeing a naturopathic doctor and he is trying to heal the villi in the small intestine which could take 6months to a year. I was just diagnosed with celiacs but have been gluten-free for about two months. It took about a month for my muscle/joint pain to go away,,and i thought I was just getting old...LOL. the last couple of weeks have been great and i was living on Benadryl. i would seek out a good naturopathic doc and maybe see what other foods you may be reacting to. i am soyfreee,egg free and dairy free as well as a host of other things right now because of the damage to the small bowel. I hope u feel better real soon.
  13. Thanks Peter,,,never thought of pourous plastics or wood boards. do u really get reactions from so little a thing?
  14. My naturopathic doctor did a blood test,,allergy testing and a saliva test. In my opinion medical doctors don't test for this enough. they usually do the small bowel biopsy,,but I have been told that if you are off gluten/wheat for a while the tests can be negative and conflicting. In the past I was diagnosed with IBS,depression,and environmental allergies. also the villi in the small bowel can be damaged and you can have other food related reactions. i am currently soy free,egg free and dairy free. I also hear some of the syptoms are like crohn's disease and that if untreated celiacs can cause crohns. good luck
  15. is purchasing separate items for the kitchen really necessary?
