I was looking on the internet for a new non-toxic gluten free house cleaners when I found this company called Shaklee.

I e-mailed the rep asking if their cleaners were gluten-free, and this is the list that she sent to me:

Once again, Thank you and please feel free to ask any questions that you might have in the future.

I grew up with my mom selling this so I'm very familiar with it plus I recently started doing the business as well. They do their best to be accurate and I'm not sure if you were sent the gluten statement, but they do say that they don't test for gluten so cannot guarantee gluten free, but will give you a list based on ingredients. Having said that I have had issues with some of the proteins that are supposed to be o.k., but I'm very sensitive. I know others that take it just fine so either I'm very sensitive or have just had bad luck :o) If you want to know anything about any of the products regarding gluten I could probably answer it for you.

The cleaning products are really great. I've been using them as long as I can remember and I've never really used anything else so I have to base the comparison on what other people tell me and it gets very positive responses especially the H. People that use it are just amazed. If you are planning to order they have an amazing special on right now, but it ends on the 30th. You can get the kit featured on the Oprah favorites show for $89.60 plus shipping and tax and then that also qualifies you for a free membership (normally $19.95) which gets you 15% off orders for the next year. The $89.60 kit will not qualify for 15% because it's basically at cost with this special. Just wanted to make sure to pass that on since it would be a shame to miss the deal if you're planning to buy anyway. Also, one thing that is not in the kit is the liquid Germicide which I would highly suggest adding. It's a wonderful very effective germ killer.

Hope this helped and feel welcome to ask about any of the products and gluten. I use quite a few things so hopefully I can answer as far as reactions.

Hey, I just noticed in your profile you have a child with a heart defect. My son was born with HLHS. How is your daughter doing and if it's o.k. to ask what does she have? My son is 10 now and is doing so much better than anyone ever expected including us!

We are distributors too and love the stuff. We were introduced when our first son started having all kinds of issues (he is also the one that lead the way to this board).

I absolutely love the makeup. At first the foundation looks a little pricey but it lasts way longer then what I was buying at the store.

The cleaning products are good too.

I love the scrub paste. We use that on the oven and can even let the children use it.

I love the germicide. I used a lot of it this past weekend when the kids were sick.

Holiday~ Thanks for the info. I was not sent the gluten statement. Thanks for letting me know about it.

I do have some questions for you. What products did you have some reactions to? My kids are on the more sensitive side and I would like to be as careful as I can be.

Serena was born with a narrow aorta and by the time she was 5 weeks old, her heart was the size of her chest and functioning at 18%. She had surgery to correct the problem and continued to suffer from heart failure for another 7 months. Her heart is still large for her age and she has a heart murmur, but she is doing very well. We have her next check up sometime in April. Serena is 7 1/2.

Glad to hear that your son is doing well.

mom23boys~( the first time I read your name I thought it ment that you had 23 boys not mom to 3 boys :D ) Thanks for your imput. I will really look into the germaside. Is it like a hand sanitizer or is it something you clean with?

Thanks again~

For me it's mostly the protein powders. I would get some cans that would be fine and then hit one that after about a week there would be a reaction. I think it contains a very small amount, but when it is something you take every day it builds up if that makes sense. My dd was taking it as well and also reacted after a few days so there was no doubt. Stopped the protein and we both got better. My theory is that there probably is a very small amount of cross contamination in the fields, harvesting or whatever. I don't react to soy in other things and only to the protein if I take it every day. We discussed this with someone in S. that used to farm and his response was with the way farming is done how could there not be cross contamination. I also mentioned this to someone that works at S. and they suggested that if I did not have an issue with dairy to try the new whey protein as it contains no grains. I just had some today and so far so good. I have not tried the mealshake since going gluten free so no experience with that one.

The supplements that I can list offhand that I've done fine with are the Multi Vitamin, C, B, all calciums, coq10, EPA, GLA, Mental Acuity, Lecithin, Vitalizer, Nutriferon stress relief and my gluten free dd takes the childrens multi, chew. C, garlic, Defend and Resist stress relief (works great for her with gluten reactions as far as crying etc.) with no problems. I've never had a reaction to any supplement besides the protein drinks I mentioend above. I also take the Performance which I use often in the summer. Just to pass on it really helps my son with his heart condition to handle the heat in the summer. He plays baseball and for some reason without this he just can't do it. He has tried Gatorade and he does not do well with it. Not sure why, but it's a huge help for him.

As far as cleaners I've never reacted to any of them. I don't use the dishwasher so don't use that soap, but with the dishwashing liquid we've never had any problem at all which is important since my dd does the dishes and I know she doesn't rinse as well as she should :o) I am one of those people that generally don't have problems with products unless they're ingested so as far as skin reactions I won't be much help. The nice thing is they do have an unconditional guarantee where for any reason you can return the remainder of the product and get a refund. I began to appreciate that more after going gluten free because there was an expensive rice protein I bought and reacted to and I'm just out quite a bit of money even though it was supposed to be gluten free. I do have a website that I just started building that has a bit of info. on it, but I'm not sure how much it would help you as it's certainly a work in progress, LOL. I do have some links to when the product was on Oprah if that's of interest. I'm working on a page of how to use the cleaners, but I'm not sure when it will be up. If you want the link you can e-mail me. You should be able to e-mail me through my profile.

I'm glad to hear your daughter is doing well. Has she regained full function? Part of our sons condition was a narrow aorta measuring 2 mm so that was repaired as well. It sounds like your dd's was not caught right away is that true? We didn't find out about our sons until he was born and about 12 hours old they found a heart murmur and upon testing found the HLHS. Huge shock for us, but thankfully everything turned out well. We were stationed in VA at the time so we were flown to Cleveland Clinic where he had surgery when he was 6 days old so that was a very overwhelming first week!

Jen,

Not sure if you've checked this, but just in case I wanted to add since I forgot to mention it that I also do well with the Cinch bars. I use them when we go places where we can't eat or if I'll be out somewhere. Keeps me from getting a blood sugar crash and they're great for the kids. We've eaten so many in the past year it's ridiculous. I keep them in the car for emergencies and also have one in my daughters backpack in case something happens to her food at school. It has happened in the past where kids accidentally contaminate her lunch and then she just goes hungry so this is a wonderful backup.

Also, the cleaners were on Oprah's Favorites which is re-airing on wed. so the special offer I mentioned before was extended which is nice.

    • I know-pretty dumb. I'm usually very careful. I didn't check into it. Thanks for reply. DebLee
    • LexieA, This thread might help you. You say you never have "heartburn/GERD". You can have something called Silent Reflux. It  could also be NERD. some of these links are in this thread but I will post some releavent information in this reply as well. here is a good overview of the difference in this fox news article. http://www.foxnews.com/health/2012/11/13/gerd-or-nerd-new-type-acid-reflux-doesnt-respond-to-drugs.html but if your throwing up it is probably from Bile Relfux. . . . instead of acid reflux. I actually wrote a blog post on celiac.com about these conditions. the NYTimes article called Bile Reflux a "Shadowland" in Medicine and part of the reason for the title of the post. here is the NYtimes article about some of the issues you are describing. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/30/health/30brod.html throwing up is actually a protective reaction. and this normally protect us from poison's or food poisioning etc. but when our biofeedack loop is broken down like having bile in the stomach instead of the small intestine . . . it can be hard to break this cycle. The green portion is probably the bile portion. It is actually very caustic as Plumbago pointed out.  this would/coul scald our insides (lower GI/Small Intestines). Normally stomach acid is neutralized by bile after it leaves the stomach . .. not while in the stomach. I wouldn't never recommend anybody do this on purpose . .. but if you are already puking your food up then simply buy a pH test kit. testing your food/chyme/puke (food outside the body) you will quickly get an idea of how acidic/basic your food chyme (digested food) is. It will almost be a pH of 4.0 or more. the paleo nurse explains this well why strong stomach acid is important to your health. http://thepaleonurse.com/the-truth-about-stomach-acid-why-low-stomach-acid-is-jeopardizing-your-health/ quoting the paleonurse. "In the infinite wisdom of the human body, the stomach was designed to produce the acid that is necessary for proper digestion of food.  When functioning properly, the parietal cells of the stomach secrete hydrochloric acid that bring the stomach pH to a range of approximately 1.5 to 3.0" if it is a higher pH than this you can benefit from taking BetaineHCL to restore your stomach acid to more natural level. . . especially if you are not already taking PPI's since a proton pump inhibitor is lowering stomach acid. .. . by their very ability to cut off almost all stomach acid production. **** this is not medical advice I only know taking powdered stomach acid (BetaineHCL capsules)  helped me. I was not barfing my meals though. . . so your experience my be different. Maybe Ennis_tx will comment because he has some of the same symptom's/issues. But if I was puking I think I would be curios to know what my pH really is? And not Assume? anything at this point. If you test your stomach pH with easy to buy pH strips you will know whether it really is high pH (low stomach acid or a little stomach acid as your describe it) or low pH (really high stomach aid) that is causing the issue's. Once you know for sure you  will know who to go about correcting it. Supplementing with BetaineHCL is fairly harmless . . .unless you have an ulcer. And you will/would probably know it instantly if you take some BetaineHCL and it feels like someone is putting out a cigarette in the middle of your stomach.  It is acid burning your sore/ulcer. thankfully eating protein/food quickly neutralizes/raises stomach acid especially when taken with a glass of water. staying hydrated with a meal also helps improve digestion so be sure to take some water/drink like a tea or juice etc. for example if you want to the BetaineHCL to work properly. Milk has the opposite effect.  If you feel a burning milk can coat the lining of your stomach helping to erase/ease the effect of strong acid. And why people who eat hot **** five alarm peppers aka known as Hot heads keep milk close by if they need to dampen the fire in their stomachs from eating too many peppers. . . . and drinking water can aggravate this practice of eating the hottest peppers you can find. I hope this is helpful. I have rambled on long enough. be sure to read the sickboy user in the medhelp thread of how he helped his GERD/bile reflux. here is medhelp link for easy reference included in the "silent reflux" thread if you haven't read it yet. https://www.medhelp.org/posts/Gastroenterology/UNCONTROLLABLE-BILE-REFLUX-PLEASE-HELP/show/738242?page=1 he was suffering for 5 years and got better so don't lose hope. It can seem very daunting but people on this board do get better. we have used different methods but people do get better. again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me. good luck on your continued journey but it is not a long way back if you know the way. 2 Corinthians (KJV) 1:3,4 3) “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4) who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them (sufferer still suffering)   which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” posterboy by the grace of God,    
    • LOL sorry but really? You trust that, dominos, papa johns, and pizza hut ALL say they can not 100% guarantee their gluten-free pizza are celiac safe. THEY USE the same prep areas, same ingredient bins, same ovens and in many cases the same cutters and spoons used to spread the sauces and cut the pizza. I doubt the employees would even bother changing gloves between pizzas during rush.   Seriously if you want a gluten free pizza....gut a premade one in the freezer section from UDI, Dayia, RealGoodPizza or a crust from cappellos or califlower foods and make your own....Here please save yourself here is a list. BTW Pizza hut uses UDI crust and just tops them with their sauce etc....CCing in most cases and delivering them. Also the REAL good pizza will mail you cases of their pizzas fully made. Califlour foods and capello will mail you empty crust by the case. SO you can order them if  local stores do not carry them.

    • My MRI has been clear. They did a spinal tap back in May which was also good.  MS ruled out many times. All my symptoms match Gluten Ataxia, but I don't know for sure since I don't have a dx. However, I DO have Hashimotos so at least going Gluten Free is necessary for that. I go to my Rheumatologist on Jan. 30th, 2018. Can a Rheumatologist determine Gluten Ataxia? If so how long should I be back on Gluten for testing?  Thanks for the heads up on Free and Clear products. I will look into that.
