  1. I've had celiac disease for years, 5 years I've been cooking and buying gluten free products and have ntoiced changes. Have had worsening symptoms, seem to react to soy products now, not sure what else, but getting tired of have indigestion everyday in class. It's distracting to other students when I get up several times during collge classes and I get behind on the work. I don't have insurance, need a GI scan and an allergy scan as soon as possible. Nothing seems to be digesting rigth and I have a constant irritated intestinal situation. There's a constant oder as well. My family knows but keep telling me to get to the doctor, I'm new in AZ so I'm not settled with anyone. Needing help, thanks
  2. Is it possible for a celiac, who is on a gluten free diet and 95% or more of the time is gluten free, to have a bit of diverticulitis in the lower end of the large intestine? What kind of detox teas or foods or natural remedies should one do to rid a bulge or inflamed large intestine? Would there be other causes to this bulging that have symptoms a person should recognize and share with an experienced physician?
  3. You have to be careful and read the ingredients. Most bottled spices contain a wheat derived substance to keep the spice from sticking or clumping int he bottle. Check out your gluten free book guides at a book store or Barnes and Nobel. That's how I learned there is wheat in spices. The wheat is under a different name of course, so the bottle isn't going to tell you if it's "Gluten free". Also learned of this in the gluten free grocery guide.
  4. Bad Luck With Lotion

    Also just a thought, check and make sure if the shampoos that your washing the animals in is safe for your skin. Hopefully there isn't any cross contamination from that to your clothes and to other things, just in case that may be giving you a reaction. Sounds far fetched but may be something to look into.
  5. Gluten Free Poll

    Trying to live a gluten free life for 5 years, had it since childhood and didn't know (lived with pain/problems). Some how I get gluten about every month now, getting the diet and other products under control takes a long long time. Takes me about two weeks to get back to normal digestion (if I do my procedure of recovery). Diagnosed with cancer at age 20-Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (about the size of a grapefruit in between my heart and lung-acted like heart attack symptoms). Also had malnutrition problems from childhood still lingering, cysts, and minor issues that come and go. Family has had many cases of cancer, liver disease, kidney, reproductive and neurological issues. Seems that those people before me had celiac disease and never were diagnosed. This leads me to believe it gets worse every generation that is not taken care of. Absolutely have just ate stuff I wasn't sure was gluten-free. Typical human nature to rebel against what I know is right and wrong. I am now 25, will be 26 in 3 months. So 6 years cancer free.
  6. Over the last few years I have noticed an increase in my immune systems strength as I've changed my diet over to gluten free. Students and friends get sick around me as usual but I show very little symptoms and in fact recovery very quickly. The only issue I have if this is true is, my system is working over time and when I'm partly feeling symptoms I'm not taking care of my health as if I were sick. Feels like I'm getting over taxed not to mention I could be getting those around me sick (I'm a virus carrying "friend") and they don't really appreciate that. Any insight into this little issue or proof if true or false? GW
  7. Wonderful hot soup to warm a person up in the morning or for a light lunch. Provides the vegetables, vitamins, proteins, and is a quick make in the kitchen. Honestly this egg drop soup could use a little gluten free soy sauce to top it off. Start with washing and chopping: bok choy stalk, 1.5 cups cabbage, 1/3 to 1/2 cup bean sprouts, 1/2 cup mushrooms, 1/4 jalapeno pepper, 1/2 cup cauliflower. Heat about a 3 cups of drinking water on the stove med. high heat, when boiling toss in vegetables. Crack and drop in two or three eggs. Turn down heat after two minutes to med. low heat until eggs are cook to preference. Scoup and pour soup into bowl and add a dolop of rice if you'd like. Good meal to tupperware, heats up quick and easy to make. Enjoy! Ginger W.
  8. gluten-free-mimi's Cafe

    I asked for the gluten-free menu and (after they scrambled to find the file on the computer to print out a new copy) I read through paragraph after paragraph of warnings that I assumed would already be there so no biggy. Then I spotted the Citrus Salmon and asked that it be wrapped in tinfoil and cooked on the grill that way (because in the pamphlete the grill is stated to have particle of other breaded/sauced/spiced products containing gluten). The Citrus Salmon came to me with lemon slices, fruit and salad with no oils/dressings/sauces/etc. It was delicious! One note, they do not list that soy sauce is wheat based and claimed on the papers that it was "eatable" by gluten-free people. Beware, soy sauce is fermented from wheat ususally, unless it is certified Gluten free. Citrus Salmon-wrapped in tinfoil and cooked on grill/no oils or anything added Ask for lemon slices, plain salad with fruit and water with lemon in it. DELICIOUS No reactions, loved it, and my cousin and I caught up on life in general.
  9. Dating And Celiac

    Hey, I'm single in my mid 20's and dating non celiacs and doing alright. The date and I usually go to the grocery store and pick out somthing to make back at either persons apartment ONLY afte we both feel comfortable enough to invit the other over without feeling our boundaries would be disrespected. That's definantly not on the first date. Activities like ice skating, movies, walking, going to events in town, the zoo, hiking, blah blah blah is usually the beginning dates. But I definantly stick to my GLUTEN FREE LACTOSE GUNS! I don't budge, I just suggest my ideas in a better light like....I can make a pretty mean spaghetti sauce or chip dip with all natural ingredients just in a blender or frying pan. Not a poblem. And that's how it goes from there. Hope this sounds helpful to some. Any Arizonians out there??? Phoenix area? Any Christians (most importantly) out there???
  10. Idaho Moving To Arizona

    I'm not really a party person, I'm mostly just working and doing college class stuff or home projects for comic books and reading. So the party scene will be skipped with me. Love the heat of the sun though! Can hardly wait, but I will.
  11. Idaho Moving To Arizona

    Cool I'm looking forward to more vitamin D, lol. Also, I'm use to the Lewiston valley summers which are a desert heat. Just outside of town on the highway to washington or southern Idaho there are cacti and tumbleweeds. The summers often get to 100 easy and a couple summers I remember the temp at 120 F and all the black roads tar snakes were wiggling under my feet. But I was in gradeschool or junior high. Loved it though!
  12. Uncomfortable Naturalpath Visit

    Thankyou all, I'm so frustrated that he'd do that. I'm going to get my paperwork and say "tah tah!" to him! I could sure deal with the arm energy test a lot better after this poking session. Sheesh.
  13. My history is complicated (scholiosis, celiac disease, hernia under the left rib cage, etc) and latley I wanted to have my blood tested again after the last test a couple years ago. I looked up in the yellow pages a naturalpath, originally interested in a foot bath, and got his attitude on the phone that I should explain why and what I had wrong with me to get the ionized foot bath. I explained, he said to scheduale an appointement. Long story short, I'm on the table telling him all about my health issuse and he starts poking areas like my temples and subclavius areas and then my abdominal area. He jams his fingers under my ribs and presses hard wiggling his fingers in my tender areas where my stomach and pancrease are. He asked me if that's a 1 through a 10 in pain, obviously that's a 10. I say "Owe that hurts!" he does it again, I say "Owe that still hurts!" and goes to the other side does it twice there, stops to make light of the subject and pretends to walk away to write this all down and laughs and jams his fingers in the area again! Tha bastard! So all night my hernia area, my poor guts hurts and they still hurt today. I'm offended and hurt, my last naturopathic doctor didn't do this to "test" for celiac disease. So I'd like to know what to do about this guy, I've already paid him for a first visit and the blood work which totalled 350$ and he wants me to come in Thrusday to go over the results which will be another 50$. I don't want work done by him, but I do want my test results which will be in his hand Thursday. His name is Garry L Shohet, DC, NMD, C.Ac he's in Boise Naturopathic Medicine, PC 2524 Noth Stokesberry Place Meridian. Honestly I looked khim up on the Better Business Burea, I don't recomend his techniques so far. He first of all had no idea of my organs health, second didn't care of my past hernia, third didn't need to jam his fingers anywhere to "test" my body for celiac disease. Nothing like getting false sense of security in a fancy new office full of fancy stuff to be hurt right away. This is why I honestly don't trust doctors of any sort when they have a prideful attitude, should have saw this one coming. What does a girl do about this situation? I think I might go and get my paperwork, but he'll be mad.
  14. Idaho Moving To Arizona

    Was looking at Phoenix or Gilbert. Not sure now, but sure would enjoy the hot summers Boise is getting a bit chilly for me. I was living in Mooscow Idaho, which had temperatures in the negatives most of the winter....BRRR> totally tired of that. Your from AZ? Where did you grow up at?
