  1. Going Organic

    Interesting...... I am doing as much organic as possible. I will buy the chicken when it goes half price due to the "Eat BY" date. Same with the meat. I guess all fish is organic. Another fact is just going with WHOLE FOODS. Organic if possible. I think you guys are right on about the organic diet. Cooking is so easy and I love cooking anyway so going gluten-free if not hard for me. The fact remains that we all should eat heathy foods. Yes the cost is worth it. Let me drop this link I found to be my wake up call. Is frozen as good as whole foods. I mean the processing ruins the nutrients, yes no, so why eat organic frozen? I think this woman's thoughts are unforgettable. She has changed my thinking of food.
  2. Whey Protein

    What about Whey if you are lactose intolerant, like most of us are? I have tried this product called Zrii and it is a shake one meal replacement and I get the runs from that. It has Whey in it.
  3. Fosamax

    Amazing. I was just getting back checking in and the fact that Fosamax is not indicated is hard to believe, yet I believe. LOL.
  4. Glutenology

    Thanks everyone. I thought the Doc was a bit unprofessional. But it is good to keep in mind for someone like me. http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=lwtRgsKBPvs&feature=uploademail Whole foods seem the way to go.
  5. Cool Story. I had to tell the dr to test me. it is amazing that they are clueless.
  6. Fosamax

    Good info Gemini. Thanks. I going to pick up some of this stuff. LOL. You saved me some research time. Metagenics Cal Matrix, which are calcium supplements. I take the recommended dose of 1500 mg. per day. I also use their Vitamin D3 called D3 1000 and I take 2000 mg per day. I also include magnesium glycinate chelate tabs and usually take 1 per day at 300 mg. I follow the recommended amounts for optimal results but some people may have to take differing doses. I got these from my doctor.
  7. I saw this link on Facebook. I really wonder if anyone else has seen it? This Dr Osborne has some revelations I have never read or heard in relation to Gluten. He states that all grain has gluten and is harmful. Is he right? Here is the link... http://www.glutenology.net/glutenology-health-matrix-free-video/ Does anyone have an idea if he is on the something? Boyd
  8. Fosamax

    Gemini, Thank you very much for the input. You mentioned that you take a big dose of supplements. May I ask which? I am 59 about 155#. I have read everywhere that weights and exercise is helpful. I am under motivated with working out. Just lazy maybe. I used to rollerblade every day, this was before I was nailed with an onslaught of celiac disease symptoms. Now it is winter. I plan on getting back into form this spring. This whole celiac disease experience has been life changing for me, in every sense of the word. Soon i am heading to Utah for Snowboarding soon. I was wondering how bad my osteopenia is, all I have is the fact that I have it. I wonder how bad it is? I am now very heathy. I see many great new foods to eat, Whole Foods! Organic everything, lol. Good luck to you too. Gemini. Let's all pray for Gabrielle Giffords, and all the injured In Az. How terrible! Somehow she seems to be recovering. Boyd
  9. Fosamax

    I tried to take this for my osteopenia but I felt flu like, and generally bad. When I started to read about the drug there are all kinds of serious side effects so I stopped taking it. Any opinions? I am taking Jarrow Formula Bone Up instead and have no SE's with this. It lists as such Supplement Facts Serving Size 6 capsules Servings Per Container 40 Amount Per Serving Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) 200 mg Vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol) 1000 IU Vitamin K1 (as phylloquinone) 100 mcg MK-7 (vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7) 10 mcg B12 (as methylcobalamin) 100 mcg Microcrystalline Hydroxyapatite (MCHA) 4762 mg Calcium (from MCHA) 1000 mg Phosphorus (from MCHA) 510 mg Protein (from MCHA) 1514 mg Magnesium (as magnesium oxide) 500 mg Zinc (as zinc monomethionate) 10 mg Copper (as copper gluconate) 1 mg Manganese (as manganese citrate) 1 mg Potassium (as potassium citrate) 99 mg Boron (as boron citrate) 3 mg Other ingredients: magnesium stearate (vegetable source), and silicon dioxide. Contains soy. No wheat, no gluten, no dairy, no egg, no fish/shellfish, no peanuts/tree nuts. All of these seem like everything I have read here that a person with celiac should supplement their diet with. What do you think?
  10. Back Again

    I have Osteopaenia. Same reasons as you. My dr gave me Fosamax which I took for a month and stopped as I thought I four pills were enough. The Dr never said I should continue after that, lol. I restarted and had side effects. I felt flu like, had the runs, my joints were sore, and I felt tired out. Needlss to say I called them and they said to try it again since I the first time I didn't notice any SE's. Jerks. Well I now read some of the posts here and you all just confirmed my thinking that Fosamax is not a safe drug. What is a endocrinologist. The nurse there did say I would be better seeing one for better answers. Thanks Boyd
  11. Suggestion

    My suggestion would be to have a main forum, called "Gluten Free Foods and Recipes. Yes Mods?
  12. Yes welcome. This forum is great. I like contributing too. I was so sick both physically and mentally unbalanced it still is hard to believe it was all from gluten. I drink Coconut Milk. Tastes great too. I have found a product packed with nutrients you may want to look into it. Zrii. Bye
  13. Yes I am constantly eating at work. All I do is want to eat. I do however feel full after eating lunch at work. I eat so much for lunch.. One recipe that I will share that is guaranteed to fill you up is Frank and beans. http://www.rachaelraymag.com/Recipes/rachael-ray-magazine-recipes/rachael-ray-30-minute-meals/Franks-and-Beans-Stoup?_mid=729032&_rid=729032.588400.96248 I use the gluten feed bratwurst.I used six of them. You have to really cook it down much more than she says. Also gluten-free beer. It is so good too, very spicy.
