Just curious if anyone gets the Living Without magazine. I have been looking for a copy to read, but none of my stores carry it.

Thanks

I think you have to order a subscription online. Then it will be mailed to you. I have never seen it in stores either.

God bless,

I couldn't find it either so I had to subscribe. It only comes out quarterly.

Occasionally, I have seen Living Without at Whole Foods, but you cannot rely on that. If you really want the magazine order it online. Shirley

When the new editions come out, I see them in Wild Oats, but only for a week or two before they rotate them out until the next edition.

Is that magazine really helpful for celiac disease? If so, is it the best magazine? I was thinking of subscribing to something and heard about this magazine, but was wondering if it's really worth it -- and if there's anything that's better than it......I've never seen it, so I can't judge it, myself, but would appreciate the opinion of others who have seen it....what do you think?

I have a subscription and I really enjoy it alot!! It feels good to know there are other people out there. They have great full color pictures and ideas just like a regular magazine. http://www.livingwithout.com/

I have a subscription to another, which is in all black and white and not very good paper and they charge an arm and a leg for it!! It has good information, but hardly any pictures or anything fun it it! ha http://www.glutenfreeliving.com/

celiac3270-

Living without has more stories about coping, travel, etc. Gluten free living has some technical articles. They also have some informational articles, like in this last issue they interviewed the Chef with Disney who is very supportive of Celiacs.

Both are good magazines, Living without has color pics and all that good stuff like a normal magazine.

:rolleyes: My local health food store, Fruitful Yield in Illinois, carries Living Without Magazine, and I really love it. The magazine has wonderful articles, not only about gluten-free, but many other allergies also. It also has lists many companies that carry gluten-free food.

I would try contacting your local health food store and see if they have a copy.

I wish it would come out more than 4 times a year, though.

Good Luck!

I work for a magazine distributor that sells Living Without on the West Coast, so I can read it for free! But I also can look up what stores carry it, so if someone is looking for a west coast store let me know.

Actually, I've ordered the subscription. I love the magazine. It is not just for celiacs, but every magazine so far has had infomration on Celiacs and peanut allergies. Both of those topics are important in my house, so I am thrilled!

    • Gemma......if you are ever in London, please check out this place.  It is a 100% gluten free bakery and the food is out of this world!  I can't get bread like this in the States and it certainly is worth a road trip for anyone living in the Uk, within reasonable distance from London.  It will easily satisfy all of your bakery cravings and I bet the bread freezes well. http://www.beyondbread.co.uk/
    • Celiac disease can be dormant for years til a strain/stress to the immune system makes it come out. Many of us have had this issues, your infection run in might have triggered the dormant genes for the disease if you had them. I would follow up with the testing, see about getting a full celiac blood panel if you can, you have to be eating gluten for 12 weeks daily prior to testing. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/

        If not celiac it could be another food intolerance/sensitivity I suggest keeping a food diary and tracking what you eat, seasonings, how it is cooked etc. And how you feel later. Change up our diet more and look for patterns.  Here is stuff to read up on. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/are-food-sensitivities-for-life
    • Yeah , i will look into getting tested - like you say there is no harm in it . What I found very interesting is the part where you say "Later I got pains in the stomach, usually a dull ache although I could get a fierce stabbing pain there too. When I went gluten free those pains stopped. as did my chronic sciatic backache which Ive subsequently realised was probably due to inflamed tissues pressing on nerves." - I also started to get chronic sciatic nerve pain on the right side over a similar time period and am wondering if its the same kind of thing. If I could solve both those things it would be life changing for me
    • Hi ,  i was thinking that an intolerance and allergy were about the same thing really but sorry if im wrong. I know celiac is an autoimmune disease but was thinking that is different again, more serious and was erring on the side of my possible issue not being that but more of the intolerance type. Clearly im just guessing though and dont know about this stuff , hence the posting for advice, The problem with trying to get tested is that in bolivia there are very limited tests and doctors are unreliable so you have to rely on yourself to certain degree. I have heard of a test here and was planning on looking into that but it made sense to try to get some opinions and advice online first so Im in a better position to understand if any tests here are actually reliable enough. I dont think there is an issue with travel parasites etc as I have already taken the medications thats would kill them like a course of albendazol and praziquantel and that was after a 2 week anti parasite cleanse. That did feel like it got rid of anything and the only issue I have been left with is this pain as described.
    • Karen's point about parasites etc is a good one. They can cause a lot of symptoms similar to celiac /ncgs as you probably know.  At 11 I had my appendix removed following pain in the lower right side of my torso. On waking up the surgeon told me that it was actually ok, when I asked what caused the pain I think they said it was probably glandular - they didn't know. Later I got pains in the stomach, usually a dull ache although I could get a fierce stabbing pain there too. When I went gluten free those pains stopped. as did my chronic sciatic backache which Ive subsequently realised was probably due to inflammed tissues pressing on nerves. I would ask the Bolivian doctors if they can get any celiac blood testing done. The standard ttg may not be beyond their labs. can't hurt to ask? Give your diet my guess is you've had a lot of gluten for a long time. If its an issue for you expect a bumpy ride when removing it.  Best of luck!
