  1. I want to start using gluten free Shampoos but i need to know if any persons with black, relaxed hair have ever tried them and the result. Thanks
  2. That's the thing I am not aware of testing down here. i am going to do some blood work tho to test to make sure i do not have any deficiencies. I will try also to find out somehow!
  3. Thank you guys so very much. This iste is a real help as where i live, this is not something people really know about. Thanks
  4. I am confused. I have been on a gluten free diet , or trying to be on one, for almost a year. I swear i felt stronger before this diet. I sometimes think i may just have a wheat allergy and not celiac disease as i just sneeze, cough, breakout in my face and get sinus issues if i eat bread or pasta and so forth. However, I got low on nutrients when i cut out the breads and cereals and was told to eat brown rice and more protein. I got better after eating more of that stuff to replace the wheat in my diet. I got the worst gas after that which lasted like almost a month. I thought it was celiac disease again but found out after that it as the pro-biotic vitamins (multibionta) that had caused it. After cutting the tabs out and finally eating some raw garlic to kill those suckers (pro-biotics), i finally got rid of the gas just like that! So, all that to say this, Could i just be allergic to wheat and not gluten? Whenever I got sick was when i ingested something that actually had WHEAT Flour in it. In the beginning before i even knew about celiac disease I actually switched to Barley flour and was doing quite well my face even cleared up. I live in the Caribbean and I feel so alone as no one here seems to really make time for this stuff. If any Caribbean people out there please give me a heads up on which island is best for this stuff. thanks
  5. Does anyone know if the Brunswick sardine in soybean oil with hot peppers is a gluten free product?
