Yikes! It looks like maybe there's no such thing! I have a nasty throat infection- weird, in the summer? I can't tolerate HFCS or corn syrup. Shoot, I wish someone knew something.

My kids have had it, not right now, but I have never had it and I have probably had it for a week before I finally went to the doc. Now I know what they put up with!!!

Thanks Molly. I was going to order the chocolate items as I really need to put on some weight and they are out of them. I will order the tart sampler for now.

St. Claire candies are good...but one warning on the cough drops--some have echinecea and a few other herbs in them. So, if you don't want to be taking those don't get them. The product I'm talking about is here: http://www.econaturalsolutions.com/site/70...oduct/TIN-OW-TH I like the candies...but they seem to make my throat sore if I eat too many of them. Acidic maybe? They are definitely worth buying, but if you are like me, too many might make a sore throat worse.

Lisa and Kate-- My recommendation is Thayer's Slippery Elm drops. This is what I use for a sore throat. Ingredients are slippery elm bark, dextrose, magnesium stearate, natural cherry flavor (you can get plain too), sucrose, vegetable stearine. Preservative, sodium, menthol, gluten, dairy free. The sweetner is corn derived. It doesn't say anything about soy, so you could ck on that. But I don't see any obvious soy on the label. See their products here: http://www.thayers.com/ They should be in any major health/natural food store.

Thank you, Molly and Kate and Jen and all!

Molly, yes, I have the peppermints (very tiny); I didn't know of their other things so I'm going to try some- thank you! Kate, I'm starting to wonder if this is strep myself although I've never had it, only my son. I now have lost my voice as well. Hoping you're feeling better. And,Jen, thank you for the Thayer's info, will check that, too!

Yeah, I loved it when I was a kid, & my kids loved it when I did it with them!

It also occurs to me, OceanGirl, that you could make yourself a batch of simple syrup as a truly simple cough/throat syrup to take by the spoonful. Simple syrup is nothing more than equal parts sugar & boiling water, stirred until the sugar dissolves. We keep it on hand in a jar in the fridge, to sweeten iced tea & homemade lemonade-- & it is also the preferred food of hummingbirds, in case you have a feeder!

This is a good idea--I have always used honey and lemon juice stired together and warmed.

Oh, yes, how could I forget that! My husband used to make something for me when I had a bad cold that he called "Rheumatiz Medicine" (Beverly Hillbillies reference!??) that consisted of warmed honey, lemon juice & whiskey! Boy it made colds a lot more tolerable! I guess you'd have to be careful about the whiskey...

We call these hot toddy's in our family, and we also add hot tea to it. It cures a cold in no time flat! If you drink it when you first feel it coming on, it doesn't seem to progress. :)

Rheumatiz Medicine :lol::lol: I remember that! When I was young, we had a gas stove with a pilot light. My mom used to keep a dish of the stuff on the stove over the pilot light whenever someone in the house was sick. It would stay nicely warm there all day.

I always do honey and lemon when I have a sore throat and, until now, it has always worked.

Thanks for the info on St. Claire's - think I will have to put in an order!!! Looks like I will have to pass on the slippery elm - too much corn. But the St. Claire's looks like I can have CANDY????

Throat is much better now - second day of drugs.

Leah,

Cool crystals; I remember that-maybe I'll make myself some. Thanks everyone regarding honey and lemon-the preferred treatment of my French and Greek family. Unfortunately, I can't tolerate honey anymore (a lot of fructose in honey, I think) and right now citrus doesn't feel so good either! Gggrrrr... I'll make some simple syrup. Thank you all for your posts. Kate-glad you are feeling better!

    • Soft blended, soups, porridge, Personally I had to avoid the follow for my last gluten attack Spices (made it burn),  any carbs, sugars even in trace amounts caused gas, We normally suggest removing dairy and oats also as they become problematic during healing. Simple soft cooked egg dishes (coconut/almond meal quiche and microwaved omelettes), nut meal porridge sit best for me. Many swear by peppermint and camomilla tea, and peptobismal but neither of those work for me personally, other swear by Imodium for the D.

      There is a product out there that is supposed to lessen the symptoms of a exposure called GlidainX that helps to break down some of the gluten in the intestines so it is not as bad but you have to take it right after realizing the issue. Not tried it personally but after my last exposure and the following 4 weeks of random bouts of D I had I would have tried anything lol. MY D did no stop til my antibodies went back down and my exposure was a low and slow exposure to a CCed food staple....
       
    • Hi lex, I haven't tested anything with NIMA myself, since I don't have one.   I did find some honey sites that claim they have gluten-free honey.  This is just a couple I found in a quick search.  It seems to me honey is made from nectar of flowers.  The nectar is a precursor to the seed.  So the seed isn't formed until the flower is fertilized.  Then gluten is formed as the seed matures.  So normally I think there is little chance of honey having gluten in it because the nectar and gluten are not present at the same time in the plants. I don't think it's impossible for honey to somehow get some gluten in it.  Honey from china has been adulterated with other things already.  Generally high fructose corn syrup.  But who know what else they put in it? I think's its safer to buy local honey where you know the farmer than imported brands IMHO. If there were a large flour mill in the area where the honey was being harvested I'd be a little wary of it myself.  At least for honey produced during the harvest season. http://www.barkmanhoney.com/faqs/does-honey-contain-gluten/ http://www.capilanohoney.com/au-en/faq/is-your-honey-gluten-free Is your honey gluten free?       Honey is naturally free of gluten. It does not contain wheat or its by-products. Our honey is 100% pure and natural, nothing has been added to it, therefore it is 100% gluten free. In addition to this, no gluten containing products are handled or stored in our packing facilities.  
    • Hi everyone! New to the forum. I was diagnosed in 2012, told to never eat gluten again, and never had a follow-up or anyone really care about the diagnosis. My Endo checked my vitamin D levels (the low level and genetic history lead to my diagnosis) bi-annually which have remained now in the normal range. This level is what I was always told determined if absorption was happening or not. I have never heard of the things everyone on here gets tested for  I feel so cheated out of my health in a way. anyways. I have severe, severe brain fog. I used to be so smart, sharp, witty, focused. I even have some personality changes and severe anxiety. I was put on Xanax after I was diagnosed but my tolerance to that medication is outrageous. I have to take three times the prescribed dose (my doctor knows this) in order to get any relief/clarity. I have a weight problem even though I work out four days a week (with a trainer), probably due to my flip floppy thyroid levels. Anyways, that’s my story! I have appointments with a new PCP, Endo, and GI doc in March! Just wanted to share with you all because you’re so kind and helpful. If anyone has any advice for this brain fog, I would be so appreciative.  I should also mention that I was extremely smart and sharp before stopping gluten, ironic? Like the lack of gluten dumbed me down 🙈 I never ever cheat. I know restaurants aren’t 100%, but I rarely chance that. There may be SOME cross contamination but I never feel repercussions.  Thanks for reading ☺️
