Hi,

A friend sent me this link http://www.specialfoods.com/ . Has anyone here heard of it or tried it?

New to this topic/forum - Has anyone tried the breads or flours? What about making your own from ingredients at an ethnic grocer? Some of the ingredients sound pretty unusual, but I imagine I can find them here in Los Angeles.

Thanks!

Merika

I guess this has been UN-cross-posted, but the site is not just a place to buy food. It is an entire theory about how to rid oneself of allergies AND heal the body. It's not celiac-specific, but much of it falls into that category. This is why I wanted it cross-posted in the "Recovery" section.

From the home page it says "The SF Comprehensive Intervention Program is for individuals with chronic diseases, conditions, disorders and symptoms, including:

Leaky gut, malabsorption problems, digestive disorders, irritable bowel, diverticulitis [and more]" and "The SF Comprehensive Intervention Program combines a highly effective dietary intervention program and a highly effective environmental avoidance program with direct and intense counseling. The program acheives dramatic, abrupt symptom reductions, and maintains them. The program then guides you through diet expansion and to a complete eventual recovery."

Clearly, it won't get rid of celiac, but theoretically it might get rid of leftover symptoms and problems from the celiac. I also have multiple food allergies from celiac, and this diet would apparently work for that issue too.

Hi celiac3270 - yes, thanks, I know all the sites you mention. But they're just food suppliers of gluten-free foods. This other site is a whole 'nother animal :) Check it out, tell me what you think.

A moderator had the second post removed because the board rules do not allow for duplicate posts under various sections. The topic can be moved, though. If you have other questions not related to food and would like it under the post-diagnosis section, I could move it for you....

I see what you mean--that site, besides selling foods, goes into a lot related to food -- weight gain, stomach aches, etc. I see what you mean. I just wasn't sure if you knew about the other sites....

Hi celiac3270,

Yes, that would be great - move it to post-diagnosis :) I think I'll get better answers there. I can understand not wanting cross posts. Would it be ok if I posted a new question here in gluten-free Foods to find out about the taste of the products?

Thanks,

Merika

Sure--I'll move it. And "sure" to your second question :) -- the whole point of that rule was just so that someone wouldn't post the same question in every forum to try to get many replies. But if you have another question, feel free to post it. I'll move this one.

    • 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.
