  1. Ontario And Ohip

    In my opinion, I think it is true that the government wants to keep us sick. Look around at all of your friends and family who are employed in the medical profession or field: doctors, nurses, labs, psw's, dietary, housekeeping, laundry, etc. Without sickness, what job would you have? For us to have jobs, the population must remain sick. Even I am employed at a Senior's home. If they had had proper care and support, a lot of them wouldn't be in there. I support Alternative Practitioners, gain of personal knowledge and preventative 'medicine'. Maybe one day our government will as well.
  2. Hello denipink, This is my first day as a new member of this site though I have used it for lots of pertinent accurate information in my search of Gluten-Free products and info. I too am from Ontario, Canada. Eating Gluten-Free and eating healthy are not really that difficult. All you have to remind yourself is that it is for the good of your body. Sure it can get a little frustrating when you see everyone around you eating anything they want. But believe me, when they see the awesome food that you make for yourself, they will be envious of you. If you don't know how to cook, learn. It is truly so easy and empowering. I try different recipes all the time. You will learn what to substitute out for a Gluten-Free product. I've even taught myself to make delicious Gluten-Free cupcakes such as Peanut Butter and Jam, Cherry Cheesecake, Cinnamon Bun, etc. Friends and family look forward to coming over for dinner and don't even realize they just ate a Gluten-Free meal. Good luck with your new experience!
