  1. Sorry about that. It is 2000mcg.

    Anyway, I went to a health store this morning and found a brand called Pure Advantage.

    It says no dairy, egg, sugar, corn, yeast, wheat, soy or glutens.

    Then ingredients are purified water, vegatable glycerine, potassium sorbate.

    Each spray is 500mcg and I did two sprays.

    So far I feel pretty good. I am up cleaning the house and making brownies so that's a good sign. It isn't making me feel weird like the other stuff.

    I am pretty convinced it was the ingredients in the other stuff. I will also post an update later.


  2. Update, I feel like total crap today...just really depressed. I am really wondering if the sugar alcohols could be it. I tried to find pure B12 but couldn't.

    Does that article mean that legally they can say something is gluten free even though it's not?

    I am so sure I didn't eat anything wrong. I ate the same exact thing everyday for the last 4 days.

    Anyway, I don't want to discount the B12 but I am really scared to try it again.


  3. Ingredients

    Sorbitol, Mannitol, Natural Raspberry Flavor, Natural Peach Flavor, and Magnesium Stearate.

    This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease). Suitable for vegetarians. Contains no yeast, dairy, egg, gluten, soy or wheat. Contains no sugar, salt, preservatives, or artificial color, flavor or fragrance.

    Here is the info from the package. Please if anyone see anything funny let me know. I want to figure this out.


  4. I went to The Vitamin Shoppe on my lunch break today and bought some B-12. I have read so much about it I wanted to give it a try. I took it around 1:00. It is the kind that dissolves under you tongue.

    Anyway, I felt a little weird after taking it. Now, I have been an absolute raging lunatic for about 2 hours. I mean really, really bad. I have never felt this pissed off in my entire life. I have not eaten anything out of the ordinary. I do not take any supplements or medication at all so that is the only thing I took today.

    Has anyone ever had such a reaction to B-12?


  5. Thank you for the response. There is no way I am going to give my son a stool softener. I don't think he is constipated and I told her he goes back and forth between constipation and diarrhea. So, it's just out of the question. I stay away from prescription anything as much as possible.

    His diet is never typical. When he is with his Nana it is totally different than with me. I pack his lunches which are always gluten-free. They consist most of the time of either eggs or a baked potato, applesauce, 1 juice, water, some kind of chips. I change it up sometimes but it is always gluten-free. When I let him eat the food from the cafeteria guaranteed he will have a bad day. He eats whatever I eat for dinner which is always gluten, soy, dairy-free. Breakfast has been harder. He usually has cereal or waffles. He gets the 1 juice at lunch and the rest of the day is nothing but water.


  6. Well, I just got back from the lab after my son's appt. It went pretty good, I think. His doctor basically believes he is constipated and that accounts for the stomach pain. She asked about the extremely dry skin which he has always had patches of it since he was a baby.

    Anyway, after she told me to buy some stool softener I told her that I felt I should mention that we have a strong family history of celiac disease and that I would like to do a celiac panel on him to rule it out and I would then feel so much better. She said she could order that for me. Then she went on to tell me that if he did have it this is how it would manifest itself. She also said she has a very close doctor friend that specializes in Celiac and she probably doesn't look for it as much as she should.

    I saw the lab report and it said celiac panel. Now, I have to figure out what that includes and also what the results mean.

    Thanks for all the suggestions.


  7. Thank you for the advice. I will go in there open-minded. What made me think of Celiac is my uncle is a confirmed Celiac and I believe there are others in my family although he is the only one that has been diagnosed.

    I am also gluten-free and benefit greatly by eating this way.

    If anyone else has advice please let me know. I do not understand all the different tests and such but I am going to learn.

    Sincerely,

    Michelle


  8. Has anyone had a problem with eating the same foods everyday? I have figured out foods that I know do not bother me and I am afraid if I eat them everyday that I will develop an intolerance to that food. Has anyone had that experience?

    I can easily eat the same things everyday and not really get bored because I am a creature of habit. I have to force myself to try new foods. It really seems though lately I am reacting to so many things that it isn't worth it at this point in time to keep trying. I just want to eat as stress free as possible.

    Thank you for any input,

    Michelle


  9. I am in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and would like to take my 6 year old son to get allergy testing done. Does anyone have someone they can refer in this area? Do I take him to a pediactric allergist or is it another type of doctor that would do the testing for gluten intolerance?

    I am new to all this but Celiac runs in my family and I believe my son could have problems with gluten as well but have not started any testing process at all. He is complaining of stomach pains alot lately and thinking this might be the time to go to a doctor. I don't think a PCP will be of any help at all although I could be wrong.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Sincerely,

    Michelle


  10. I would like to come up with some kind of quick shake to make in the morning. Has anyone tried using Knox Gelatin? Will it thicken up like a shake if I use less or will it always harden like jello?

    I would love to come up with a shake using coffee, coconut milk, stevia, and gelatin. Does that sound like it would work and make a nice, thick, creamy shake? It doesn't have to be cold.


  11. Not an answer, just more questions...

    I would be very interested in this too.

    Do you get coconut milk from the store or do you actually buy the coconut and use that in your coffee?

    :P

    I buy coconut milk from Market Street or my local health food store. It comes in a can and they have regular fat or lite. I love both but the lite is more runny which is perfect for coffee. I am going to try to make whipped cream with the full fat but I haven't done it yet. It does have a bit of a coconutty taste but I really like that. Hope this helps.


  12. Okay, I want some yogurt really bad but dairy makes me really break out. Well, I started thinking that I love coconut milk and use it in my coffee every morning. Well, low and behold there is a thread on here about making yogurt from coconut milk.

    1) Has anyone tried this and if so what were your results.

    2) Is an ice cream maker and a yogurt maker basically the same thing?

    3) Do you have to use a yogurt maker to make yogurt?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Michelle
