  1. I couldn't find any info about it on their website... Can you give us all an update when this beer gets released?
  2. wow! thank you for sharing your experience. This actually really helps me make some decisions. Thanks everyone!
  3. yay! It makes me happy to read that! :-D
  4. I need to look into Bioset! I haven't heard of it until today. Its wonderful that you had positive results with it! I'm just looking for identification and perhaps lessening of my sensitivities...I"m not sure I have as many complications as you, so maybe i'd see a differnce.... I know I like him too!! hehe he had a way of talking that made me believe him too lol
  5. I dont' know if he claims to heal leaky gut or not, but he does NAET for people with Celiac. I haven't made an appointment with this guy yet, but i was told by his receptionist that he's had the most experience of anyone in Oregon. Here's his info: Ronald E. Kibert, D.C. Contact Information Company: All Family Chiropractic Address: 4610 SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Hwy Portland, OR 97221 USA Phone: 503 245 3444 Fax: 503 245 6477 e-mail: drkibertdc@allfamilychiropracticclinic.com I haven't decided to go yet, but if i do, i'll let everyone know!
  6. My doctor who recommended me to this told me that it could lessen my sensitivity (but not cure it, as you said). I think I have ALOT of sensitivities beside to gluten which make this whole process confusing and difficult, and it would be nice to figure out exactly WHAT i can and can't eat lol. I can NOT eat it just fine as long as i know what not to eat!
  7. exactly! which is what i've successfully done in these last 2 weeks. I can't say exactly what has changed besides getting some outside perspective, but it sure has lessened my stress level!
  8. LOL i know! I wish i could just eat pizza and cookies and bread in my dreams, but NO i have to avoid them in my sleep too hahaha oh.. thats too bad. I was hoping to hear good news... I'm sorry it didnt' work for you! If i don't get some positive experiences from others eventually, i might not pursue it... Thanks for your response!
  9. I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience, positive, negative or nuetral with alternative medicine and their Celiac disease. I recently saw an osteopath (actually, i just tagged along to my mom's appointment) and I explained to him my symptoms. I told him how whenever I eat out, even if i order off the gluten free menu, I have a pain on the left side of my intestines, and my right knee, and my shoulders start to ache. I think its from cross contamination. He showed me a reflexology treatment i can do on myself whenever i think I've been glutened, that can help my insides stop hurting. I did it, and its had a 100% success rate so far. He said that there is a treatment called NAET (combining acupuncture and reflexology) that has been known to completely reverse food sensitivities. I did some research and found a doctor in my area (who's been practicing the longest in Oregon!) and he's had success with clients with Celiac disease. Its quite expensive however. 160 for the consult/first treatment, and 50 for each treatment after, and treatments are 2-4 times a month for up to a year. Insurance won't cover it, so before I cough up the money for this, I thought it would be interesting to see what other people have experienced with this. OH! and one more thing. Since i went gluten free, I have had gluten nightmares 4-5 nights a week. In the dream i realize I'm eating a donut by accident, or i look over and realize someone put flour in my soup. The dream ends abruptly because I get so scared that I can't finish the dream. Since I went to the osteopath, I told him about these dreams, and he said there was no reason to live in this kind of fear. He said that people who get hit by cars are afraid to cross the street, which is understandable, but in time they should be able to cross the street after looking both ways a few times. He said I need to change my attitude and eat with care, but not fear. He said the fear itself could be making the sensitivity worse itself! He showed me that way to help myself if i get glutened, and assured me that I would not truly die or explode if i accidentally ate gluten. Now here's the cool part. Its been 2 weeks and no gluten mares. twice I've dreamed I accidentally ate gluten, but i didn't freak out and thought "oops! I better quit eating that." and the dream continued happily lol. I shared this story because I thought some of you out there might benefit from a change of attitude... i think alot of us are excessively afraid of gluten. We need to be wary, but not living in fear! (amazing what some new perspective can do, isn't it?) Thanks!
  10. OH! that would explain my random fevers!!! congrats on being gluten free. its getting easier for me too, but i continue having the gluten-mares
  11. I've been gluten free for a few days more than 6 months now. Every once in a while I make a mistake or eat a spice and forget to call the manufacturer first, and I seem to be able to tell if I've ingested even the TINIEST amount of gluten. My muscles in my arms and legs and neck get a strange tingly and weak feeling, and my heart rate increases, almost to the point of discomfort. I feel lightheaded also. These symptoms set in about an hour after eating the questionable food. I was just curious if anyone else has these symptoms. I seem to be so sensitive that I can tell if a food that is supposedly free of wheat ingredients, (say corn chips) was manufactured alongside wheat products. I switched brands of corn chips, and they don't' give me the tingly feeling. Also do any women out there notice that their periods don't hurt anymore?
  12. Wow... Thank you for taking the time to tell me your story! and thanks for the good ideas too I have a new inspiration to do well... Its easy to become narrow minded and sorry for one's self, instead of aspiring to the challenge to be healthy and happy! It helps to talk and hear from others about it so much.... more than i even thought it would. :-D
  13. You're right... i'm glad i found this forum. it really helps me get some perspective on things... one month has felt like FOREVER to me, but you are completely right, I haven't given it nearly enough time. I have a tendency to expect immediate results :-P I can imagine how hard SCD would be to follow... so i don't want to unless i figure out i have to. How long after you cut out dairy did you start feeling better?
  14. :-D I think I've come to a decision for the time-being. I will keep a food journal, and trust my gut instinct and what will make me feel sick or not. I won't count carbs, but i will keep in mind that the more carbs i eat, the sleepier i feel, and the more i retain water, so i will be moderate. I will check ALL labels still for gluten, and be a bit more careful when it comes to eating out. And no more foods that could be cross contaminated like rice cakes. (big deal, i hardly like that stuff anyway) I'll try to stay with whole foods. I will take my vitamins everyday like a good girl, and remember that these things take time.... If the journal seems to say that a certain food is causing trouble, and that food is on the list of illegal foods on the SCD, i will eliminate it, and see what happens. Also, since i've been eating more sugar and starches, my dandruff( which is really a yeast overgrowth on my scalp) and my eyebrow dandruff has gotten worse! I think really need to kill off that yeast. Thankyou everyone for your advice and support! i feel much better now... especially knowing that there are others with similar problems... I was worried that my celiac diagnosis was wrong.
  15. Ok I'll go check that out. My lumps are always on spots of my feet that rub or take abuse. Usually the inside edge of my big toes, my heals along the edges, under or around my baby toes, or on top of my feet. Once i broke a toe in Karate, and even after the toe healed, a giant purple hard fleshy lump appeared and was there for years afterwards. My lumps are very itchy, but NOT hives at all. They are inflamed flesh, but deep underneath the skin, so it almost seems like theres a grothn underneath. They also hurt, and when they get too big (like about 3 inches diameter, 1/4 inch high) i can't walk very well. After i went gluten free, about a week later(but started getting better the day i stopped eating gluten) they all dissolved and haven't been back. I never got any on my hands... when i was 14 i got some on my shins, but those never came back either.
