  1. Can anyone tell me which eye makeup products are gluten free and safe please? I've found some in the US (Joelle) and some Canadian (Arbonne -- very expensive), but wonder about Maybelline and Cover Girl? I've been looking at ingredients and e-mailed their sites, but haven't received anything conclusive. Anyone know anything about it? I'm a celiac and very sensitive to anything with gluten, even on my skin. Thanks for any help!
  2. Cures For Constipation?

    Hi Pondy -- just want to let you know about a book that a friend showed me, called "Great Taste, No Pain!" by_______ Brescia. It talks about combinations of foods that don't digest well and others that do, focusing on keeping your system more alkaline than acidic. I'm trying to eat this way and am getting a bit more health in this area....and am taking digestive enzymes with meals, while taking 6 billion probiotics 2x a day and B50, with an abdominal health formula for 2 rounds to heal the villi in my intestines. I sure hope it helps me, and I hope you find your answers.
  3. Fairly New To Gluten Free

    I am encouraged by her words too. Must say I'm still waiting to feel better. I've cut as much gluten from my diet that I am aware of, and still suffer. I just found out that the skin care products and makeup I'm using likely have gluten and have to start all over. I'm researching products and while some claim to be gluten free, they contain tocopherol (vitamin E) and so I'm wondering if I can trust them! I've sent e-mails to several companies to ask the source of the Vit. E.....is there anything else I need to think about that I've likely missed? My vitamins all claim to be okay as well. Sure want to feel better. Have dark puffy circles under my eyes all the time, am always tired, never sleep all night and have had restless legs syndrome for many years. A doctor told me it was the result of my hypothyroidism. It's a lot worse when I have to sit at work all day. I stretch and stretch and take Advil to try to relax them so I can get to sleep. Any support would be very much appreciated! I appreciate having this forum to come to!!
