  1. Can Anyone Help Me?

    Sorry to hear you are in distress. What I can recommend to you is to read the book Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall. It focuses on diet designed for total digestive healing. The diet is called the specific carbohydrate diet. It is gluten free and also eliminates all other grains. I have just started the diet myself. You can access a lot of information from the following website http://www.breakingtheviciouscycle.com/. I hope this is helpful
  2. Pizza is one of the foods that both my son and I missed. We now use the pizza crusts made by Kinninnick, they taste great. Just add your toppings and it is cooked in about 15 minutes. My husband will even eat some. Hope this helps.
  3. Why Are So Many Of Us Still Not Feeling Well?

    I have been gluten free for just over a year now and still don't feel that great. I have recently read two different books dealing with the digestive system and the damage that can be done to it. The books describe how these problems also affect other organs such as the liver. Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall deals with celiac disease. The books describes the specific carbohydrate diet which was once used for celiac disease. The diet is even more restrictive than just gluten-free. I started the diet yesterday. The other book is called Eating Alive by Dr. JOnn Matsen ND. This book details the entire digestive system and how you can heal it.
  4. Specific Carbohydrate Diet?

    Today is my first day on the scd diet. I hope that it helps me feel better. I have been tired and depressed and it sounds like my digestive track is to blame. It will be a long journey, but hopefully worthwhile.
  5. Gluten Free Menu

    Thanks for the info. I'm going to be in Regina in October to see the Stones and I might try out those places.
  6. Specific Carbohydrate Diet?

    I find this discussion interesting. I just finished reading the book and it makes a lot of sense. My brother has been on the diet for about a month. I just don't know if I could follow such a restricted diet.
  7. Welcome to the forum. I have found it very helpful and supportive since being diagnosed almost a year ago. I live near Winnipeg. We have a great store in Winnipeg called Lorenzos. The owner has celiac and the entire store is gluten free. They sell prepackaged products as well as fresh baking. You can even special order birthday cakes.
  8. Itchy Skin

    Thanks for that thorough reply Kim. A couple of people have mentioned a relationship between casein and rashes. I have not heard about this before. Does anyone have any information?
  9. I Hate You, Mcdonalds

    I understand your frustration. I am currently dealing with being glutened, I'm not sure where or how but it has happended. My skin is so itchy and my head also hurts. I also dealt with the gastro problems. Sometimes have celiac disease just sucks and we have to live with it, although sometimes it is just so difficult. I hope you feel better soon
  10. Itchy Skin

    Thanks everyone for your input. I guess I need to try to determine other things that could be causing the rash in addition to possibly gluten.
  11. Itchy Skin

    Last Friday I think I had a bad gluten experience. I went out for lunch with some coworkers, and I thought I ate safely. Within an hour of returning to work I felt dizzy and then I quickly ran to the washroom to vomit. Since them I have had itchy skin on my arms, I even wake up from the itchiness. I would appreciate some feedback. Thanks!
  12. Bunch Of Questions

    Hi My son and I have been gluten-free since August and we're both not feeling that great. He just spent the last three days in bed. The intestinal problems are much better but the fatigue is overwhelming sometimes. I have been taking a multivitamin and fiber capsules for the past couple of weeks. I have read so many other posts and I realize that we should start feeling better in a little while. Until then we just have to grin and bear it.
  13. Going To Ixtapa

    During the Christmas holidays I will be travelling to Ixtapa with my husband and some other relatives. I am nervous about what I am going to eat. I am planning to bring some food with me, so I won't go hungry. Does anyone have any advice. Thanks
  14. Going To Ixtapa

    I need some help. A group of relatives is going to Ixtapa at Christmas and really wanted me and my husband to go. My relatives realize the difficulty I am up against. I need some suggestions on how to solve my food problems.
  15. Oh, I Get So Mad!

    It is amazing the places where you find gluten. I never thought that my favorite hair spray would have wheat starch in it, but it does. You have to read every label to be sure. This disease can be frustrating.
