Hey all:

I just read another post, stating that someone had emailed Oprah, but no response. I have emailed her also, about a month ago. We need to keep emailing her about doing a show about Celiac in order to reach those who are sick and not knowing why. I suffered for 15 years with symptoms, many you have suffered just as long or longer. I wouldn't wish the suffering that we had on anyone. We can reach more and educate people about it. Please email Oprah. I have also gone to the extent of joining her message board, I am gonna start Celiac-postings ASAP!

LOL...the Oprah Show once wanted me to be on the show...for family issues...They called me after I e-mailed my personal story to them....but, I wouldn't agree to asking my Mom to be on to show...and I also thought it would kill my Dad to have his alcoholism history aired...

Anyway...

Perhaps one of her producers personally knows of celiac disease, or of someone close with it, and might take a personal interest in it if our e-mails are mentioned in a meeting about potential show topics?

I imagine, though, that Oprah would be MOST interested in the overall idea of 'dangerous grains' AND in dairy protein problems that so many people have...

The reason I think this is because Oprah is so very much into maintaining her own health, and so she, herself, would want to know about the potential problems with common foods.

So...I think 'our' best bet might be to ask for a show about the dangers of common foods, and to ask to have Celiac Disease be a highlighted part of the show...with info and links about it put onto her web site.

OK...so, I will e-mail the show, also. It's a good plan to flood her 'show ideas' address with this....

I haven't read the other post about this yet, but here is the link you'll need to e-mail the show about this idea:

I just sent my e-mail to the show.

Hopefully, they will find that having a show about this topic can help many people who suffer needlessly.

Not waiting until my initial comes up, sent an email to the show just now. We can do this......we should email soon and often and stay on top of it letting everyone know if she does decide to do the show. Barbara

You could further your chances of success by emailing the authors of Dangerous Grains and ask them to pester Oprah. Also, the guy who runs this web site, Scott Adams could write and offer to be a guest speaker on the subject. I think the more reputable people who have accountability on the issue would be more persuasive.

    • Thankyou ch88 you are so very kind, im so glad there are forums like this, so helpful.  Only signed up the other day and everyone is great.
    • My GI told me that everything looked great visually (endoscopy), but my biopsies revealed moderate to severe intestinal damage.  ☹️  You just have to wait for the pathologist's report.  
    • I ate there July 23 2017, had cheeseburger with gluten free bun (charged extra 2 dollars) which tasted very good. dressed burger with tomato, pickles and onion and even mayo with no unpleasant affects.  I appreciated the choice of gluten-free bun.  Also, the young man serving us asked if I wanted my French fries on the same plate as my burger, I guess their fries are not fried in a dedicated fryer.  Nice of him to give me a heads up though.  I am NCGS not proved as celiac disease.
    • I think you will find that aromatherapy is safe.  I have had the same thing when having facials many, many times over 12 years gluten free and have never, ever had a problem. I have never found any aromatherapy that contained gluten. I am a very sensitive, diagnosed Celiac.  As far as lotion is concerned, you won't have a problem if you wash your hands, which I cannot imagine NOT doing before eating.  That is Celiac 101.  You only have to screen hand lotions for personal use and anything that goes onto the lips.  Eye drops also should be gluten-free as you put that directly into the eye and it can make it's way down into your gut. Hair salons........no, never had a problem.  If a salon uses good products, they will not contain gluten. Again, in 12 years of checking anything new they use, never found any gluten component.  I color and trim my hair once a month and I'm pretty sure I'd be dead by now if I ingested gluten for so often for 12 years.  You really do not want to ingest anything that is sprayed and I can't say that I have.  It's a bad idea for many other reasons besides gluten. I know you are newly diagnosed and yes, you need to check ingredients BUT gluten is not everywhere. If you check whatever they are using and it does not contain the dreaded gluten, then do not worry about it.
    • There is a lot of information on site about living with Celiac disease. A good idea is to take a look at the "coping with" section and the "newbie info 101" thread. There is a lot of good information about cross contamination and proper nutrition.
