  1. Sleep and Celiac Disease

    I would like to add that the muscle and joint pains can come from reaction to the deadly nightshade family of plants which include potatoes, tomatos, peppers and eggplants. I had terrible pains in the night which awakened me at 3:00 am so so and when I eliminated these items from my diet I began to be free from those pains and able to sleep more normally. This is documented and may be researched on the web by looking up arthritis information via google or other search engines. The potato flour is often used as a substitute in many glutein free foods so you have to work reallly hard to get this out of the diet. This is a real kick in the head for me as these are some of my favorite foods and I really wasn't ready to give them up. But I was plenty ready to give up that pain. I was so sleep deprived I was ready to go nuts. It was affecting my health. Secondly, I was taking specially compounded hormones which were applied as a cream and consulted the pharmacist and she said to be sure to apply them above the waist as they would be much more effective and would work more correctly, not make me sleeply during the day, help me sleep at night if I applied them in the evening and above the waist. She also advised me to have a very light snack before bedtime to make sure I was not getting hungry which would make me wake up. Bead lady
  2. Extracts

    I don't know about extracts but recently while in Kauai, we ate a lot of papaya and other fruit and I got a really severe rash over my legs and arms and had to discontinue. Enzymes in certain foods will cause problems. Bead lady.
  3. Hip Pain?

    Hello, may I offer you some thoughts? I had horrendous pain and did some reading on arthritis. The deadly nightshade family of plants, that is potatos, tomatos, peppers, eggplant, and related plants cause pain in the joints and up and down the spine. I was having such pains along with my glutein intolerance and remembered other family members complaining of such pain in years past. I eliminated these items from my diet and voila! the pain is ceasing. Please try this. See if it works for you. I hope it will help you. My best to you in the holiday season, Beadlady
