  1. Fuchs' Dystrophy?

    I do and found your question while hunting to see if there is a connection to Celiac Disease.
  2. Short answers are:

    How did I do it? I didn't give up.

    Did it help a lot? Yes.

    Perhaps you could tell me a bit more & ask focused questions...I have a lot of information.

  3. Hello, I am not sure which post, will you please copy it to me?

  4. Hello, I saw on your comment on Fructose malabsorbtion you were basically free of EVERYthing, how do you do it, and did it help alot?

  5. Leaky Gut

    Yes.My understanding is they are one in the same. I found this explanation http://www.(Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned)/gluten-free-society-blog/leaky-gut-and-autoimmune-disease/
  6. Legumes

    Hello, There may be more going on than Celiac/gluten-free/no cross-contamination. Hard to digest Galactans are in beans and are a FODMAP. Look at Monash University (Australia) world center for research on this digestive study. Here are some links: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20136989 http://www.medicalobserver.com.au/news/fodmaps-what-are-they 2009 UP TO DATE list of foods http://www.med.monash.edu.au/ehcs/docs/booklet-order-form-2010.pdf
  7. Costco

    Soaps, Shampoos, Conditioners and Massage Oils all can contain "hydrolyzed wheat protein". It is true, gluten can not be absorbed through the skin. Therefore is TECHNICALLY not a probem for Celiacs. HOWEVER, if the gluten is on the skin/hair, it can get on the fingers, then, in the mouth, then in the gut. I have found products with wheat and regular oats, in all of the items listed above. Now, I always check with the products manufacturer if there is no "gluten-free" labeling, or if gluten does not appear in the ingredient list. S
  8. Hello, I just added this to my list of eliminated foods and am hunting for the best way to do a "clean" elimination diet process. (gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, corn, oats, nightshades, dietary yeast) Any information you can provide, ie the mayo article link, would be much appreciated! Sue
  9. Cooking Free is now on my list to investigate. The cookbook top on my list is Alissa Segersten & Tom Malterre's The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook. www.wholelifenutrtion.net So far, it is the only cookbook I have found that has many recipes where I don't need to convert anything! Also packed with suggestions for how to organize and stock kitchen. One of my favorite treats is on page 329, Gingerbread cut-out cookies. The Detox/Elimination Diet on page 381 (second edition) is what turned my health around a 18 months ago. Nomato...looks like it is available mail order, or in stores on the east coast. I have a message in to them checking to see if any items on my hot list are in ingredients. Living Without magazine is also good resource I recently found. S
  10. Thank you! I recently made the mayo for artichokes and it was perfect. The cheese is next. I am constantly hunting for 'nothing in it' recipes. In the last two years we have discovered celiac and multiple food sensitivities, so I spend a lot of time hunting for ways to create new favorites. I am constantly on the look-out for a recipe site that has the ability to search by what is not in it. The recipes would need to be tagged xxxx-free in order avoid having to list every item (ie 'dairy-free' instead of listng milk, cheese, etc) in order to work. Have you come across anything like this?
  11. I can certainly identify with your situation. One way I save time is with what I call "fast food". I cook a huge batch of a favorite dish, divide it into single, or family servings, as appropriate, and freeze. It gives me time off from cooking everything for every meal from scratch. There are times I dream of a big walk-in freezer... but then, I'd have to organize its contents or I would never know what was in it! LOL The other big time saver is the prewashed greens. The best price I found is at Costco for organic.
  12. So great to hear from you! I love the internet...just a post away from finding a kindred soul. Yes, I cook simply too. Yesterday, I experimented with chicken tenders. I layered them in the crockpot, with seasonings between each layer, and set it on low...it took about 5 hours to cook. The most surprising thing is it turned into a "loaf"!!! A very tender tasty round loaf! Back to my query. Because there are so many foods on my list, I am concerned that I am getting all the nutrition I need. (I too am at D 28 striving for 50 ) ) This is a big part of my project. Identifying the nutrition. Also, I am at the last 20 lbs to reach my healthy weight. And, I have time...wonderful...precious, time. Identifying gluten-intolerance has made such a HUGE difference in my life, I want to be sure I am doing everything I can. S
  13. Hi all, In our family, when food is discussed, the first question is, "There is nothing in it (we cant eat) isn't there?" For us, gluten-free is just the beginning. We are celiac with multiple food sensitivities (leaky gut anyone?). We understand, once our guts heal more, some of the items on the list may be tolerable on an occassional basis. Even after that point, we will be avoiding them. I am in the beginning stages of organizing my food and am hoping I can find others who are also just beginning, or have some experience. Here is our list: Eliminated foods: Gluten (including wheat, barley, rye, triticale & spelt) Oats (uncertified ELISA) Corn Dairy Soy Egg Nuts Macadamia, pistacio & pecans Deadly Nightshade Family (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers [sweet & hot], eggplant & paprika) Obviously, we don't go out to eat ! LOL I have hunted for a way to organize our foods. I am an intensely curious person (some say obsessively so), so I want to know everything about what I eat. I am currently reviewing a program called Diet Pro from Radium Technologies. It appears to be VERY complete with the FDA food nutrition data, recipes, system for trackiing managing weight, etc. For example, after you enter in your recipe, you can link the ingredients to the information in the nutritional data base. It then generates the serving nutritonal information. It is possible to download recipes and enter ingredients... I do have to say, reviewing the FDA ingredients list was a bit of nightmare...so many processed foods, all of which we do not eat... Is there anyone around would would like to discuss this with me? I would like to share sources, lists, techniques, recipes. Sue
