  1. Can't answer the ppm debate -- not sure anyone can. According to Dr. Peter Green, US standard is under 10 ppm and Europe is 20 ppm -- but like the moderator said, ppm is only pertinent relevant to volume -- large volumes end up in glutamination, regardless of ppm count. This might help though -- do you drink enough? Often, headaches are a preliminary indicator of dehydration == and it sounds like you're a caffeine person. Hydration and caffeine are not compatible -- caffeine is a diuretic. Eyestrain is another, and a Japanese technique for relieving eyestrain is a gentle direct eyeball massage (close your eyelids, then gently massage). Direct pressure on the accupressure points in the webbing between thumb and forefinger provide immediate relief, as does a massage of the nodes at the top of your spine where it connects to your head. Finally, square breathing can also help. Inhale slowly and completely, hold for a little while, then exhale slowly and completely, and hold for a while. Do that for 10 minutes or so. These are all alternative techniques for dealing with migraines (from which I no longer suffer), and also work with normal tension and eyestrain headaches. If you have sinus stuff going on, get a Neti Pot, or use some form of steam. Hope this helps -- headaches are no fun.
  2. I found this from Enjoy Foods site: Hope it helps. http://www.enjoylifefoods.com/our_foods/ch....html?r=GDF0908
  3. Morton's Steakhouse

    Looks like it's time for a current 2009 update on Morton's Steakhouse. I was diagnosed a Celiac 5 years ago, and make a point of checking here and the restaurant listings before I go anywhere. I had an unavoidable business function at the Morton's in Hackensack NJ, and based on what I read here I was concerned. What a pleasant surprise to find that Morton's is fully functional as a gluten-free-friendly restaurant, on a global basis. They have a gluten-free menu, the wait-staff and kitchen staff are all trained to handle gluten-free (and other food allergies as well). Their vegetables and meats are all tremendous, and they have at least one gluten-free dessert available for any given sitting. They have made a corporate global policy of addressing gluten-free needs, and will be making an official corporate statement at some point in the very near future. Meanwhile, it's a great place for a great gluten-free steak experience. JB
