  1. I liked your post. "I feel better than I've felt in my life, I should say. I feel like there's one nagging problem that I can't solve. Where is the hidden contaminant???" I agree. :)

  2. This is my first post. I have two gene markers for Celiac disease and have been gluten free since late '07, for intuitive reasons in lieu of proof. Recently I find myself hypersensitive to soy, confirmed by eliminating the stuff from my diet and then ingesting vegetable oil (on accident). So, to get to the point, I have at least three distinct types of rashes and a recurring itchiness. Sometimes after eating I feel like there are pins and needles under the skin--even when I can't trace the source of any contamination. Part of my problem (our problem?) is the conflicting information out there. I read the post about wheat vodka...distilled spirits "should be safe," right? For that matter, soy oil should be safe, too, but my own experiment confirms this is not the case. I take a lot of nutritional supplements. Try getting a soy-free vitamin E. Not easy. Most fish oil, multivitamins, etc. exist in a nebulous realm of ambiguity. I'm going nuts. Thank God for wine. So, to get to the questions: 1) Booze, ok or no? 2) Supplements--if they don't explicitly say "soy free" "gluten free" am I in trouble? I feel better than I've felt in my life, I should say. I feel like there's one nagging problem that I can't solve. Where is the hidden contaminant??? William
