  1. This has scam written all over it. It may have the capability to tell if gluten ingredients are used, but i don't see how it could ever detect minute amounts of cross contamination in a product. I've been wrong before, though. Back in 1997.

    I highly recommend the addition of homemade bone broth, live-cultured veggies and water kefir into your daily diet. I have a leaky gut and notice a significant improvement in my energy levels when i consume these things on a regular basis. What part of Ohio are you from? I'm from the Columbus area and just found an amazing doctor.
  3. Airborne Winter Wheat

    Call me crazy, but i fear that i possibly got glutened from airborne particles of Winter Wheat. It is being planted in my area and my home is smack dab in the middle of all of the farmland. I cannot trace the sickness i am feeling back to anything that i ate in the last few days... Sure makes me wonder! Paranoid Paul in Ohio
  4. I take it that you are a member of this forum because you are serious about your health. But how serious are you, really? Watch this movie. It has proved to be the single most eye-opening, informative and educational learning tool for me as far as what is safe for me to consume. Check it out, you'll be glad you did. It's free to watch this week only: http://geneticroulettemovie.com/ P.S. I'm 28 years old. I've spent the last two years of my life feeling like i total crap. Everyday, just completely run down, physically and mentally. I've spent the last 3 days of my life eating grain-free, GMO free, and purely organic. I've never felt so alive, energized and happy. The change was almost immediate.
  5. I did not mention Karen or you at all.
  6. I made the same mistake with this beer. As well as Two Brother's Prairie Path Ale that is labeled gluten-free. Yep, its made with malted barley.

    Very helpful info, thank you so much!
  8. In my opinion, there are too many factors for one to say "just eat a 100% gluten free diet and you will be fine". New studies have shown that corn gluten is absolutely unsafe for gluten sensitive people. Two years ago, i went "gluten-free". Fast forward to the present, i still have many food intolerances, most likely linked to having a leaky gut. And along with my leaky gut, i have an overgrowth of candida. I've been where you are at, looking to this forum for a simple answer. But here lately i've realized there is no simple answer because everyone's situation is different. I've noticed a lot of people with celiac disease will not accept that the studies on this disease are still evolving, and they continue to eat nothing but processed "gluten-free" foods on a daily basis. Ignorance is bliss, and i especially can vouch for that. I lived it.
  9. Columbus, Ohio

    Hello all. I am curious if anyone knows of a good, knowledgeable doctor in the Central Ohio area? I have Celiac and leaky gut/candida like symptoms, but every doctor i see won't take me seriously because i have never had a biopsy done. I went gluten free almost two years ago due to my family doctor saying i was positive for Celiac through a blood test, only later to find out my results were "borderline". I'm hoping someone out there can point me in the right direction to help me find a doctor that will take my symptoms seriously, despite my lack of an official diagnosis. Thanks in advance!

    Ha, thanks Kareng, i edited my original post to include the link. Feelin' a little foggy today!
  11. A very eye-opening article for me. http://www.wholeapproach.com/newsletter/archives/2003/04_April.html
  12. I was just shopping at Whole Foods and i stumbled upon a 'new to me' gluten-free beer. http://www.twobrosbrew.com/all%20year%20beers.htm I'm drinking one now and it is pretty tasty. Also a little bitter, but not too bitter. I'm starting to notice the sedative effects of the hops. This is the first i've noticed that effect since going gluten-free a year and a half ago. The other gluten-free beers out there haven't seemed very hoppy to me. One more thing, who wouldn't drink this beer because its made with MALT? Derek
  13. Hello everyone. I think i am starting to notice a correlation between how i feel on a day to day basis and the ever-changing Ohio weather. On warm sunny days i feel pretty close to "normal" and in good spirits. Then the next day, in typical Ohio fashion, the temperature will drop 30 degrees and it will be wet and yucky outside. And of course at that point, my sense of feeling "normal" goes right down the crapper. Depression and brainfog kick in full effect, my bones and joints start to ache and feel stiff, and nothing i eat seems to agree with me. Does anyone else seem to notice extreme changes in how they feel based on changing weather? Could this be Candida??

    Oh what i'd give to even be able to eat a gluten free pizza...
