  1. Hi Everyone! I was also wondering if there was a website that would tell me if there was a gluten free bakery/restaurant in my area.....I live in Virginia Beach. Thanks, Jennifer C
  2. Irish Heart, Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. Also is there any form of pasta that I could eat that would taste like regular pasta? I am Italian and not having pasta is going to be really hard for me. Thanks, Jennifer C
  3. Irish Heart, Would you mind giving me the list of gluten-free comfort foods that I can have? I am knew to the gluten free diet myself and I am also struggling with detoxing from gluten, but for me I am nauseous and vomiting and have no energy. I have lost 6 pounds in 9 days and am having a hard time finding food that I want to eat, let alone food that will stay in my stomach. Thank you, Jennifer C.
  4. Help I'm Not Sure What To Do

    Thank you all for your help. I really appreciate it. It comforts me to know that I am not alone in what I am experiencing. I have had such a difficult journey concerning my health and I have often felt alone in what I am going through. I wouldn't wish any discomfort on anyone, but just knowing that I am not alone in this makes me feel like there is hope that I will get better. I really appreciate all of you and thank you for taking the time to talk with me. Sincerely, Jennifer C
  5. Help I'm Not Sure What To Do

    Mamaw, I wouldn't mind sharing the treatment I am using for Scleroderma at all. I am using something called "The Antibiotic Protocol" otherwise known as AP therapy. I went to see a doctor in Southern california who has had great success with this treatment for those who have the more severe form of Scleroderma. I would suggest getting the book "Scleroderma A Proven Therapy" by Henry Scammel, that is where I first heard of the treatment. Also my husband has a list of what he calls "finer points" which are things that we found out the hard way would help with treatment, some of them are helpful tips on what to look for. If your friend is interested I could send her a copy. There is also a website for people with scleroderma who are using this treatment called www.roadback.org this site has a lot of helpful information on what to expect and it is also a support site for people who have been diagnosed with this disease who are searching for answers. I have found it to be very helpful to me. I hope this helps, Jen

    I have red tints in my hair
  7. I have a complicated health history that begins with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (ended up in Myexedema Coma), then I was relatively healthy until my 30's. I was diagnosed with Systemic Scleroderma (very serious was initially given 6 months to live no treatments known, but I did find a treatment that has worked), Reynaud's, atypical chest pain, Sjogrens, asthma, and IBS. I thought after getting a handle on all of this I would be fine, but last year at 37 years old I was diagnosed with Follicular Lymphoma (cancer of the lymph nodes) and my world was rocked yet again. To make a long story shorter, I was on a gluten free diet 2 years ago, but I never felt better on the diet (stayed on it for 6 months) and this past month I was diagnosed with an allergy to gluten. I have been on the gluten free diet for 2 weeks now, but instead of feeling better I am feeling much worse. I am sick to my stomach and nauseous and I am vomiting. I am also unable to eat meat, because it makes me feel very sick and so I try to eat fruits and vegetables but I am lucky to keep any of it down. My husband says I look emaciated, and I am not sure what to do. I am Italian and pasta was my food of choice before all of this occurred. Has anyone else had this kind of reaction to going gluten free? I would appreciate any information anyone could give me. Thank you for listening and I look forward to hearing from you, Jennifer
