So, today I log into facebook and one of the few celiacs I actually know in real life had posted this:

 

http://dailycurrant.com/2014/06/03/gluten-found-in-portlands-water-supply/

 

---- BEFORE YOU READ IT AND TAKE IT SERIOUSLY IT IS A FAKE SPOOF ARTICLE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PEOPLE----

 

She thought it was real, and so did her other gluten-free friends.  I am assuming they only read the headline, because once you read a few sentences in you can see how hilariously redonkulous the satire article is.  Maybe I shouldn't expect others to be as detail oriented as I am, but really???!!

If it is on the Internet.... It must be true!

Everything on the internet is true. We all know that.

 

This is a fun website you can go to to explore the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide. My BFF to teaches a course on computer literacy uses this website to teach students about researching things. Simple true/false question on the test. Is diyhydrogen monoxide dangerous to humans?

I suppose also you could say it is depending on what you do with it. lol! I corrected a two inch stack of tests yesterday and probably had half a dozen of the ones with this question. Only one person got it right. I almost wanted to cry. I do make a point though if anyone brings it up to me to point out that I grew up next to a nuclear power plant and that it's the #1 form of waste from them. It's so easy to be alarmist about hahaha.

It's especially dangerous to drunks on boats without a life jacket and people who live next to a river. But it is gluten free!

A toddler who was found chewing on a slug.  After the initial surge of disgust the parent said, "Well, what does it taste like?"  "Worms," was the reply.

The Penguin! definatly  :lol:

 

When I'm sitting in my recliner, my two dogs sit with me on either side.  When I get up to get something they stay in the chair and when I come back I have to scooch into the middle again.  I think the words "Dog Rules" should be "Dogs Rule"  :lol:  :lol:

We had those rules too when we first brought home our fur babies.

They were to be crated at night and we were going to board them for a week every year so we could vacation at our favorite resort that is not pet friendly. They of course sleep in our bed now and we don't board them, but instead find a VRBO that allows pets so they can go on vacation with us. They run the show for sure. I finally figured out how to put their picture in as my profile photo. See, who could say no to those cute little faces? Not me!

They are very cute!  I have a black lab who LOVES little white fluffy dogs.  They are his favorite!  (not to eat, Psillies)  We used to think we were going to have to get him his own little white fluffy but the backyard neighbors got one instead.  That worked great.  My hub made a gate in the wrought iron fence so they can visit each other's yard.

    • First have you been tested for celiac disease? Any doctor can do the blood test but you have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the test to work, nut much just a half slice of bread a day. You should get this tested, the high constipation, coughing stuff up was very common for me before diagnosis. The coughing stuff up for me was from a allergy that developed I did not know of, the mucus was draining down my throat and choking me at times, and was constantly running a fever and night sweats. I was constipated for 4-10 days average back then and drinking plenty of liquids did not help in the least. Your gut rumbling could be many things, celiac is one, SIBO is another especially with the bad breath. in your case it could be related to constipation causing rotting, fermenting, and bacterial overgrowth of the waste in your system. Now to deal with the immediate symptoms, your constipation is also a sign of magnesium deficiency, I imagine you might have noticed some other symptoms from these. Now normally I would suggest either the Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors Best which is easier on the stomach. In your case I straight up suggest the Natural Vitality Calm it is a Magnesium Citrate and works a bit like a laxative. Start with 1/4 tsp twice a day in a beverage, I like the orange or the cherry in a hot green tea or you can try it in a juice. Up the dose slowly over a periods of a week to the full dose or perhaps a little more til you get a bit looser stool.     You mentioned the mucus in the stool 2 things cause this normally. Undigested fats, and inflammation/irritation causing the body to produce the mucus to help defend itself and purge the irritants. A doctor can probably tell you more but I might suggest a digestive enzyme in the mean time. I like to use a super papaya enzyme before and after a meal, find them on amazon. Jarrow also makes full enzyme complex that can help. Other thoughts if your on dairy, stop, with the constipation, and other issues this is a equation for trouble and you can reintroduce it in a few months when you clear up and see if it bothers you then. The bad breath can be a sign of lactose intolerance/digestive issues with dairy also. If it comes you you have celiac then you would have your explanation here as the villi which produce the enzymes to break down lactose are damaged/destroyed first causing most to develop a temporary lactose intolerance which for some goes away after a few months of healing. B-vitamin folic acid, and niacin will be a huge help also with some things. but will we get into that a bit later feel free to look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy if you thing it might be relevant at this point it is what I use 3 times a day with another blend they have.
    • Some of your symptoms sound like my ulcers.  I take carafate before every meal now and they are much better.  I have 3 ulcers possibly caused by taking iron supplements.  They are worse when I eat spicy food and dairy. I might be wrong but for your sake I hope it's just ulcers.  They were found by endoscopy.
    • The yellow is probably fat you are not absorbing.  The pain could be from your intestines being inflamed.  Go see the gastroenterologist.  The ER did not help me with any of those symptoms.  Good thing it's clear so you know it's not your appendix or any other vital organ.  It takes time but probiotics, bone broth and  vitamin D and b 12 help. My pain was mainly my muscles giving out from the malabsorption.
    • Hi, this has been a postcode lottery for some time, some health authorities support it others don't. The govt has recently indicated that doctors should no longer prescribe food to celiacs, you should check with your local GP to see if they are still doing this or not. if you want some advice on where to shop just ask  
    • @CleoTheLeoI've learned that I have a sluggish liver and that before trying to cleanse the liver, I need to make sure that the gall bladder is clear and working well, as well as the gut, so that when the liver is detoxing, the toxic wastes have an elimination route. Dr. Lam explains so many things in detail in his articles. https://www.drlam.com/blog/sluggish-liver-and-adrenal-fatigue/7854/.
