  1. The November meeting of the South King County, Washington Gluten Free support group will take place Monday 11/17 at 7:00 PM. We hold our meeting at Marlene's market and Deli in Federal Way. This...
  2. Hillshire farms is owned by Sara Lee. They have a very good labeling policy. If there is wheat, barley, rye or oats in a product, it is clearly marked on the label. They do not hide it in natural flavors or anything like that. The label off of the product will be the best guide on whether the...
  3. I already do think for myself and I already have researched it. I also don't believe much of anything that higher ups say, whether or not they work for the government. Good luck with whatever you do with your kids. I have confidence in the decisions I have made for mine.
  4. I find the idea that our government (that is seemingly incapable of coordinating much of anything) has embaked on a massive innoculation campaign to make its own people ill just a liiiiiiiitle hard to believe.
  5. Having an autoimmune disease does not necessarily predispose one to catching more things than anyone else. It is not the same thing as having a compromised immune system. Our bodies see gluten as a threat, and in a misplaced attempt to oust the invader, attacks the villi. Having had shingles...
  6. We use this one too. It tastes better than any boullion cubes I have had. Delicious!
  7. Gluten Free Support Group at Marlene's Market in Federal Way. Our next meeting is 3/17/08 at 7:00 pm. We will be having the dietician from Organic Bistro come to speak to us. This is a golden...

  11. I got my Marlene's newsletter for January and the next support group meeting will be Monday January 21 at 7:00 pm at Marlene's in Federal Way. Anybody in South King or North Pierce county - mark your calendar and hope to see you there!
  12. First, I will say that Benadryl is not a treatment for celiac disease. Taking Benadryl does not make it safe for you to eat gluten. Benadryl is an antihistamine, and celiac is not a hystamine response. Having said that..... Benadryl is often prescribed to cancer patients as an anti...
  13. I will be there. Might have my kids in tow because my husband had a conflict. I am really looking forward to it!
  14. I'll be there with bells on! Maybe I can meet other people with young kids. Hopefully that will get me off my butt about starting the ROCK group I keep thinking about. Was this in the Marlene's newsletter that just came out last week? I suppose I could check their website to see......
  15. There is currently no treatment for celiac disease, apart from the gluten free diet. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease. Benadryl is an antihistamine. As celiac disease is not a hystamine reaction, I don't think it would have any effect. Believe me, if there were a pill that would help fix...
