Chlorophyll should definitely be gluten-free as it is literally the green pigment which you find in a plant's leaves. Am not sure about the effects though, sorry.

Hi! I have a friend who has chronic IBS and has tendonitis in her hand. When she gets stressed & her IBS is really bad, her hand swells up so much that she can't use it. THis can be problematic for someone who SEWS for a living!! SO-- when it's really bad she takes Chlorophyll so that she can alleviate the swelling & function somewhat normally at work. She said it doesn't upset her stomach & works just as well as Benedryl which makes her far too sleepy. I know IBS and celiac are different but if it doesn't cause her any irritation & it doesn't have any gluten in it, then it should be safe for you as well.

Good luck to you.

This is great to know. I'm an artist & sometimes have awful wrist pain that makes it hard to work. I'm guessing chlorophyll would be very good for you-- parsley is full of it, & that's calming to the digestion, at least in my experience. (That's one reason it's a tradition to put a sprig on the plate-- it's also good for sweetening the breath!)

Thanks for the info! I think I'll head for the garden & munch some parsley!

thank u for the input!!!

while were on the subject here of taking digestive enzymes to control an upset stomache, does anyone know anything about Freedas vitamins....one called "parvenzyme"???? And, what exactly is it good for? does it work? i already take a few other freeda vitamins, like the multi so I know theyre safe.

any info would be great!!!!!

I take chlorophyl and the stuff I get is from alfalfa. I wouldn't trust it from gluten sources. That's just me. You can show me the science, but if I have a choice, I'll go alfalfa. It's supposed to help with body smells, digestion, alkalizing, and some other things. Despite my good diet, I seem to get acidic so I use it for that.

Also, my cat (not the one in my av) loves to chew grass, but she no longer has teeth (all surgically removed - she is actually so much happier now) and so we put some in her water and that seems to reduce her urge to try to chew grass.

    • The fullness of the Eucharist is found in the wine alone. However, glutenfreewatchdog did an article on the low gluten hosts recently. She tested a single host from the Benedictine sisters and found it to contain 0.0017 mg of gluten. Compare that to the 0.57mg found in a piece of gluten free bread. The amount of gluten you are exposed to is negligible if you take a low gluten host Here's a good article to read.... http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/amp/news/gluten-and-communion-whats-a-celiac-to-do-72220/
    • It's not the Teflon that is the problem. It is the tiny amounts of gluten that are hidden in the cracks of previously used cookware. Personally, (and I have had this confirmed by the UCLA celiac center), it is not necessary to purchase new cook ware when going gluten free. Once you have cleaned the cookware well and cooked on it a couple of times with gluten free food, all of the gluten will be gone. What IS necessary is to not continue to cook gluten containing items in those pots and pans. Now that you have your new pots and pans (and hopefully a gluten-free colander and a toaster), label them all gluten-free or not). Don't cook any gluten containing foods in your new pots and pans and you should be good to go.
    • Short answer to this:  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating? All of us!!!!!! It's mourning & it's normal. Breaking down in the grocery store & sobbing? Yep. Normal & I think we've all done it at least once if not multiple times. I would love to say more but dinner is calling me to go make it so I have to run for now. HUGS!
    • I found out roughly 3 -4 months ago by accident that I am gluten sensitive.  One day I woke up and had joint pain in just about every joint on my left side. ie, elbow, wrist, knuckles, hip, knee, ankle and feet.  I was already having issues with intense foot pain that I mistook for plantar fasciitis.  Once I googled the symptoms, and realized ALL of several other things were happening at the same time as a result of gluten as well, I knew the answer.  I had been bloating in my belly for decades, and also having migraines for years,  but as of this year, I was looking VERY pregnant after each gluten episode. This was highly upsetting.   I am 52, and fairly active otherwise.  I had Migraines, depression, anxiety and now joint pain and peripheral neuropathy.  I'm on anxiety meds, and have hypothyroidism and diabetes 2.   Getting to the bottom of the problems with my symptoms finally, has been exhilarating and exhausting at the same time.  I cannot test for Celiac because my insurance won't pay for this since I am not anemic and have no family history of Celiac.  Since I have been eating gluten-free, I have been feeling better, besides the mistakes that produce symptoms within 30 min-an hour. When I make a mistake, my symptoms come on faster and faster, and also more intense.  For example, I ate at a restaurant thinking I was okay, and by the time I got home and exited the vehicle I looked 7 months Prego, and my feet felt like I was walking on razor blades. The last week or two has been the best for not making mistakes, and finally I can eat without feeling horrible. Here's the thing:  I still can't wrap my head around this!  I comb through the forum for answers and have learned so much!  I have an extremely supportive boyfriend.  I just am in so much denial about this.  It's emotional for me and some days I just can't handle it.  I know many people with full blown Celiac's disease have it way worse than I do, I just can't deal with this very easily.  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating?  What did you do about it?
    • The basic idea is that you don't want to use something that might have gluten in/on it.  Pots and pans are easy to wash and get clean - a colander is not - all those little holes full of pasta goo.  A toaster with crumbs.
