Wow :) That is so awesome!

Between bus runs and afterward, she trains for the kickboxing competition. Diagnosed last year with celiac disease, Gilbert hasn’t let it slow her down.
Yep, that's her!

Hey guys I'm back and yep this article is about me... How did you find this? :lol: You guys are amazing :lol:

I had an awesome time up there. Although I couldn't win, I had the best world championships I ever had (so far). I know this year will be hard to top in the future. I will tell you all of this exciting week in a couple of days. I'm still writing on it.... that will be long... phew :rolleyes: . To water your mouth a little bit:

My husband had a big surprise for me. I met my old german trainer. The Team USA had a great reaction to my celiac restrictions and I passed one of the finals with 1/10 of a point :o . So 4th place actually, but you don't get a medal for that. Aluminum medal :lol: . I also had the honor to get elected into the USA women fighter team. I must have made a real good impression, cause now I'm also the Pennsylvanian IAKSA State Representative and I'm already working on looking for good people for the next world championships. I hope I don't have to wear a suit and tie :lol: . Ha... But I already found one gray hair, that's gotta count for something B) ...

But I probably will come with the IAKSA USA Team as either a referee or coach only for the next two years. Due to the fact, that the WKA Association isn't answering my letters :( (maybe they don't like germans) and for the IAKSA World championships I have to be an American (even if I would qualify at a qualifier, I wouldn't be allowed to start for the Team, so why waist all the money in the first place???), the next 2 years I won't even have a chance on a World Championship again (in 2 years I get my American citizenship). But I already start to prepare now for then (maybe even for the Olympics?, so I will be even better :D ). Thanks for your help the last couple of weeks guys. I couldn't have made it without you. THANKS 1000 TIMES!!! You will also get an update on my sports diary.

And yeah, the celiac. I knew from the start, if there would be an article in the newspaper I want to mention the celiac in there. And I have a stubborn head. Oh, Kathy (in one of the pics) is the women in my Team that has celiac, too. I already mentioned her several times in here.

Hugs and Happy Thanksgiving to everybody, Stef

If you want to see it at 4th place, I mean. The thing is, that there is one 1st place, one 2nd place and TWO 3rd places :o . All four of them are in the finals in the form performing classes. I missed this final with 1/10 of a point. So theoretically spoken it's a 4th place, cause there are two 3rd places and no 4th place in the finals. But some people say it's 5th... I don't know :huh: . One thing I know, is, that I improved greatly. Cause 2003 in Ireland I already passed the final with 1/10 of a point :rolleyes: and there weren't nearly as much people than now in Canada. And the skill lewel two years ago was waaay lower than this time, too :P . So I must have improved. :blink:

One thing I know for sure (without being cocky now) is I did a really good job and I worked hard for it :D . And I didn't give my opponents an easy time. They really earned it, too. And I didn't give anything away either. It was the highest skilled kickboxing world championships I ever competed in (or watched, I also was spectator when I wasn't competing). Every competitor there really earned it to yet alone be there. It was awesome... :lol: I'm so glad I did this. Well, I'm at my parents in law at the moment so I have to get going. But as I said, you will get some nice, cool, funny, sad, emberassing whatever stories. There's something for everybody.

Hugs, Stef

Thanks, Laura, this makes me so proud :wub: . First I was afraid of mentioning celiac (just like the "big" celebrities :P ). But then I "jumped over my shadow" and told 'em. Now it's out and actually it wasn't that bad. Actually it gave me a little bit of popularity. Since I'm back from Canada strangers on the street talk to me about this, cause they remember. Isn't that cool? And one of the women I had in my class beginning 2004 remembered me when I went shopping in WalMart (she's working there). She tries to talk to her boss about having me "over" for christmas for a charity thing and giving out pics with autographs. If this should ever happen, I will fight for bringing in glutenfree foods into our WalMart. Because our WalMart in Carlisle doesn't have glutenfree foods.

At the moment I'm planning for our "2 in 1" holiday party December, 10th. "2 in 1" means christmas and world championships celebration in one. The press probably will be there again (I don't know for sure, but they will get my invitation at the beginning of next week) and I'm struggling with the decision at the moment to invite celiacs and make a big thing with glutenfree food :ph34r: . My beloved Kathy won't come, so I would be the only one and without help in this section :( . I can't count on the help of my other students. None of them is celiac. They probably would contaminate the food without knowing. So I don't know what to do at the moment. I'm fussing and planing and can't get anything done... What do you guys think?

    • LOL yeah miralax was a joke for me WHOLE BOTTLE NOTHING, doctors thought I was lying. I found the ONLY thing that works for me is Magnesium Citrate, the bottled fizzy stuff for colon preps. Daily maintenance requires me to take Natural Vitality Calm daily, you dose to tolerance start off at 1/4 tsp 1-2 times a day and up it to the full dose over a week. If you get loose stools cut it back. You dose to tolerance with magnesium and with this disease a issue with absorbing it is very common, causing chronic constipation in many and requiring supplementation.
      Try going to a whole foods only diet for a while with soups and stews with veggies and meats also. Nut butters and avocados help lube up the system. I use some other seeds etc to add in bulk but I think we need to focus on clearing your out first before regulating.
    • I would say no even then....it belongs in its own little corner in hell. We have had members get sick from cross contact touching and handling paper mache, playdough, and dry wall spackle containing wheat then touching their mouths, or food.....heck you can inhale the powder from the sanding spackle and have it get trapped in the mucus in you respiratory tract to run down your stomach and make you sick......has happened to a few on many occasions.
    • Cross reactivity is a bit of a myth type thing, but we do get food sensitivities and intolerance issues that do creep up and they are always different for each person. A food diary and keeping track of what causes symptoms is what you need to do. Here is a true gluten avoidance list and a article on food sensitivities.

    • Me too. I still get transient lower back pain occasionally when my bladder or colon is full. It goes away immediately on voiding. Regardless of anything other diseases you may have, being wheat free gives you relief so even if not Celiac you are Non Celiac Wheat Sensitive. There are over 200 symptoms that are improved with GFD gluten free diet. Google it. It is an impressive list. In any case, while it is good to have a diagnosis, there is only one treatment, do not eat wheat and deal with the inevitable malnutrition damage.(think Biafra babies 1970.) Most will improve over time. Whatever doesn't improve should be investigated to be safe, but realize that recovery may take years. Wheat flour used should be limited to Paper Mache sculpture and library paste.  
    • Here is a partial list of what I no longer suffer from as a result of not eating wheat. Some like the sleep apnea and gerd and back pain and addiction to alcohol were almost immediate. The foot pain is improved to just numbness sometimes. My long term depression went away when I added vitamin D 10,000 iu a day for a year, but the improvement started almost immediately. Muscle tone and energy improved when I added iodine. one sheet sushi seaweed a day. My Fibromyalgia is controlled with 15 mg oral Prednisone a day. I remember as a kid waking up and having to pick the dried mucuos off the roof of my mouth. That is gone and for the first time in my life I am a nose breather. Drink lots of water to help with the mucous if it is thick. Some mornings mine is like rubber cement. I need to quit smoking now.  You can improve have faith, but healing takes time. Stay the course. A Romaine lettuce salad everyday helped the gut pain. Gerd shortness of breath sleep apnea back pain snoring prostrate hypertrophy contact lens protein buildup night vision improved cataracts reduced head hair growth foot pain sleeping no more than 2 hours at a stretch slow healing no energy. Pretty much bed ridden.
