  1. Completely Grain Free

    Thank you!
  2. Completely Grain Free

    Ps- I'm starting grain free as of today. Eek. We shall see how this goes!
  3. Completely Grain Free

    Is Rice Flour considered a grain? This is a great article, talks a bit about grains... http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/05/27/gut-bacteria-offer-new-hope-for-people-with-celiac-disease.aspx?aid=CD945+
  4. I'd do the gene testing for sure...and go from there.
  5. I'd look into food intolerance's and vitamin/mineral deficiencies. I was starving until I had a food dietitian check my vitamin/mineral levels and got on the correct supplements.
  6. Ms?

    Earlier this week, I had tons of neruo issues. Got tons of blood work with a Celiac dietitian. I learned I was not absorbing any minerals/calcium/Magnesium/B6/or Vitamin D. Once I got on doses of these, the neurological symptoms are going away. Just something to look into ...and I have an aunt with MS- which I believe is due to undiagnosed Celiac- since she's my Dad's sister (my dad also has Celiac). Hope you get to feeling better. I'd look into vitamin and mineral deficiencies. These have caused me so many issues that I'm thankful to be resolving.
  7. Need Easily Digestable Foods?

    My Celiac dietician has me eating some of the following: never the same foods 2 days in row digestive ensymes Lifeway Kefir Bananas yams (not the skin- fiber hard to digest) blueberries blackberries skinless apples Nothing acidic boars head chicken from deli tuna (plain, nothing but salt added to it) air popped pop corn- no butter carrots And always chew as much as you can
  8. Mucinex

    My Celiac dietitian told me yesterday that my recurrent sinus/allergy problems is a vitamin A deficiency due to Celiac. Wild, huh?
  9. Glutened Vent

    I has similar experiences. Finally found out that it was all food intolerances, egg yolks, soy, dairy, and oils. I kept a detailed food journal to nail them down. Hope you find what's hurting you, I know how hard it is.
  10. Probiotic?

    Thank you both sooooo much! I just went out and bought the PB8! Looking forward to trying it out.
  11. Probiotic?

    Hi Everyone! I'm a Celiac and I'm currently soy, gluten, dairy, egg, oil, and egg free...and looking for a probiotic- lol. =) Anyone, with these issues, have one that you would suggest? Thanks so much! I really appreciate it!
  12. Is Soy Next?

    I'm a newbie as well...and my last symptoms have only started to get better after cutting out soy, legumes, and beans. Bummer- but hey- feeling amazing will be worth it. That's what I keep telling myself. =) I think we'll, hopefully, be able to add it back in a year or so from now...
  13. gluten-free Vitamins

    I take: Nature's plus Adults Chewables Youngevity's EFA's, calcium/Magnesium/Zinc pills, Selenium pills,and Mineral pills Enzymatic's B12 infusion Daily Essential's Joint comfort(glucosimine, MSM, Chondriotin) Azo cranberry pills. Hope this helps
  14. I have lost 7 pounds since going gluten free in 3 months. So if you are overweight- you're body will love being gluten free and will work for you, not against you. But yes, VERY important to get on all the right supplements. Hang in there, I know it's overwhelming!
  15. Question About Beauty Products

    For sure, all gluten free products. No need to risk it.
