I'm pretty sure it has to be on the internet first.....at least, that's the only way I've been able to do it. I've put a pic on fb, then copied the location and pasted it here...

This is excellent........ :lol:   :lol:

Man, I wish that modern cars were anything BUT gluten-free....wouldn't it be great if wheat could be the base for a gasoline type (like corn is) and the world could start using it to fuel our vehicles and heat our homes? Get it out of our food system..... <_<   <_<  

Yeah, that would be good.....

OK - Loey has some bragging (or kvelling) to do! Tony scored a 170 out of a possible 180 on his LSAT's. Yesterday he was accepted into NYU Law School. He wasn't supposed to hear from any of the schools he applied to for several months. He also didn't expect to get into NYU. He's got his heart set on Ca & applied to Stanford, UCLA & Berkley, as well as several other top law schools. The cost will play into his choices as the cost of law school's on him. NYU would cost $$300,000 by the time he gets his degree. Anyway, thanks for letting me share - you are my extended family!

THIS! THIS! is what ASL (American Sign Language) looks like when properly done! In many ways I find it superior to English! Watch the little girl tell the story, its well worth the 4 1/2 or so minutes! Wish I still lived near the church that was teaching ASL for free...only learned some of the basics.

I finally converted an old recipe to gluten free and every one loved it.

 

Cheesy potato Deluxe

2 pounds of hashbrowns ( thawed)

1 stick of butter

4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese

8 ounces of sour cream

2 cans of cream of (potato, chicken, or mushroom) soup

1 medium onion fined chopped

salt and pepper to taste

 

mix all ingredients in large mixing bowl, place into 9 by 13 baking dish. Bake a 375 degrees for 1 hour.

 

Finally found boxed gluten free cream soups,Pacific organic brand!  Meijer's started carrying this brand and it is a much better price than the health food stores.

It is New Year's Eve, a time for reflection.

This board has now been running for 10 years. It went online to the world on December 31, 2003.

I joined on December 28, 2004, so it is nine years for me. I have have been honoured to be a moderator since 2007.

The year now ending has been an eventful one for me--some good, some bad.

As 2014 dawns, I wish all my friends here a prosperous and happy New Year.

    • Lex_, Again I am afraid Ennis_Tx is right here. Ennis_tx eats right and is eating all the right things and still has to take/supplement with Magnesium. The magnesium is a clue?  We need magnesium to make energy. I like to say as chlorophyll is to photosynthesis for the plant so is Magnesium for/to the Animal(s). Meaning we will run down without it. It is said "we waste away without enough Magnesium" Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote the book "The Magnesium Miracle" because people genuinely feel terrific when they take it. they are able to make energy again and function properly but the question remains  why? are we low in it the first place if we need it so much. Iron plays the same role in the blood/respiration but people still get IDA. It turns out low stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and Iron. see this link about the role of gastric acid in Iron absorption. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7286584/ How do we know this.  . . well it is has been studied and proven. look no further than the FDA box warning on PPI's entitled "FDA Drug Safety Communication: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs)" https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm245011.htm now this takes about 6 months of use to become low in magnesium but being low in stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and why many people have to take it at 2x to 3x the RDA to get the desired effect. In fact the FDA says only stopping PPI's will reverses this condition.  Obviously  taking higher amount of Magnesium can help alleviate some of these symptom's but only raising the stomach acid will completely alleviate the condition. quoting "Although both patients' hypomagnesemia partially resolved with intravenous replacement, in both cases discontinuation of PPI treatment was necessary to stop ongoing symptoms and to stop magnesium loss." Hypomagnesimia is critically low Magnesiums akin to IDA. here is a thread about IDA and why this is so . . .  low stomach acid leads to low Iron levels. I think it will help explain why Celiac's often have to take Magnesium to help with their chronic fatigue symptom's. I hope this is helpful but when I helped my stomach acid levels my Magnesium begin to be better absorbed from the food I was eating. Nuts are good Magnesium sources especially Cashews and Almonds. So is chocolate hence Ennix_tx cocoa nibs etc. . . ***** this is not medical advice but I know taking Magnesium Citrate helped my energy levels. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things”        
    • Lots of people are diagnosed after 50 according to this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3227015/  
    • Smaller meals throughout the day should help. I had the same problem but if it keeps up you may need to see the doctor again and get surgery. Anti-acids may help out too. It's been about 10 years since I had mine. Good luck.
    • Nobody posted anything on my profile that I'm aware of but it wouldn't let me get into it. My email got hacked though right around the same time so I just figured it was connected. I'm not exactly Y2K ready. This is the first computer I ever bought and I still have a flip phone. Maybe it's not connected. Don't really know.
