  1. So I recently purchased a zojirushi bread maker after much research that it made excellent gluten free bread. I have tried Pamela's mix, and didn't like it. I have been using "Pure pantry favorite sandwhich bread mix" and I think it's pretty good but would like to hear from other's what you us ein your zoji. Thanks everyone!
  2. Hi Everyone, I'm new to the forums and thought I would post an introduction so you all know what I'm doing here I'm a 29 year old wife, and mom to an almost 2 year old. I've had GI problems (D) ever since I was 12 years old. It has been an ongoing problem, I've suffered with bouts of D off and on since then. I've also had problems with dairy. Then about 6 years ago I was diagnosed with Meniere's Disease. It was pretty bad for the first 2 years but then seemed to get a little better, so I went on to have a baby. This past December it came back with a vengence. The vertigo was so bad I could not care for my son by myself. After consulting with a Naturopathic Dr. I decided to cut out gluten completely and start a nutritional supplement protocol. He believed my health issues to be directly related to multi mineral deficiencies. He also believe's that gluten is bad for everyone, not just Celiac's. So, my entire household has become gluten free and we are also taking nutritional supplements. I am having a very tough go at it, as I cannot seem to absorb the vitamins and minerals, even in small doses. Upon further research of my ongoing symptoms I have self diagnosed myself with some sort of gluten intolerance. I believe it will take me a while to heal the damage that has been done. I came here looking for support, and to learn as much as I can about how I can help my body heal naturally. Thanks for reading Look forward to getting to know you all.
  3. I maybe worded this wrong. Sorry. I shouldn't say I haven't noticed "anything". I have noticed improvements in my overal health. I've lost 25lbs since going gluten free 3 months ago and my skin is much nicer. I had an itchy flaky rash on my scalp that's gone. I just haven't noticed my ability to absorb nutrients get better yet, is what I meant.
  4. Hi, I'm doing this under the advice of a naturopathic Dr. Yes the supplements are gluten free. It's actually the supplements "causing the diarrhea" not cause they are bad supplements but because I cannot absorb them properly yet. I'm eating whole foods prepared at home. Eggs, roast chicken, sweet potato, salad, etc. I'm already dairy free and soy free. My whole household is gluten free so cross contamination shouldn't be an issue.
  5. Hi Everyone, I'm new here *waves* I self diagnosed about 3 months ago. I have been gluten free (strict) for 3 months. I am also taking some nutritional supplements and finding that I cannot absorb them. I basically get bad diarrhea...I am just taking small doses and trying to work my way up but have seen really no improvement in 3 months. I know it will take time for my villi to heal, but I'm just wondering how long? I guess I hoped I would have seen improvement by now. Can anyone share any stories about how long it took their stomach's to heal? I am 29 years old. Thanks, and I look forward to getting to know you all and the support here
