  1. Thanks! It is tough when you have multiple food sensitivities! I use the "naturals" ham with no nitrates. I will check for detrose, but I generally don't have a reaction to that ham (but I don'teat it often). And the peanut butter is okay for sure. The vinegar is another matter entirely...
  2. Hmm. I know it is not dairy. I ate peanut butter or ham and mustard sandwiches-- no dairy. Intersting about the xanthan gum. I have used it before in baking and it is in lots of cookies and gluten-free preparations. But perhaps it has something to do with quantity or a particular combination...
  3. I recently discovered the wonder of Udi's breads. I bought them (both kinds-- but mostly the white b/c the whole grain one kept selling out and I only got one loaf of that)and I ate it for several days as toast in the morning and a sandwich to take to work. However, I developed progressively...
  4. Hi Michelle! You are in a tough position. One of the issues is also that when you breathe something in, you are actually ingesting some of it. But wearing a mask would scare the heck out of people. If I were in your position, I would advertise myself as a gluten free stylist and I would invest...
  5. I have a recipe for cheese crackers that I got from this board a couple fo years ago. It is from Sweetfudge, who is a great cook. These are like goldfish cracker or cheez-its. Maybe you could use a cookie-cutter to shape them. -2 Tbsp. butter -1 egg -Pinch each of salt and chili powder...
  6. Thanks for the larenim link! Yes, that skindeep database is really scary. When I first found it I spent hours logging in all the products I use on a regular basis. Woo! It's a wonder I did not spontaneously combust from all those chemicals!! It definitely changed some of the products I use...
  7. The skinstore and sephora also list ingredients online in a bigger font. Remember that NARS and Shisheido are 100% gluten free lines. Smashbox is also pretty good (only a few products have gluten) as is 100% pure (sold online at Makeup.com, their own website and QVC.) You have to watch out...
  8. I used to have this problem too. I would go to the doctor and take the "pink pill" and it would go away, only to come right back. This went on for over a miserable year. Mine tested positive for both yeast and bacteria. They told my my immune system was compromised and tested me for diabetes...
  9. Thank you so much, Patti! I think this will help him a great deal. I can really identify with your story too. The disappointment and desperation! I took diuretics for about 10 years and developed a sulfite allergy (they all have sulphur in them). I lost weight, did exercise, acupuncture...
  10. Well, you have to figure out which chemical is the culprit. Start with msg. You can buy it (the actually sell it as a flavor enhancer) or you can get a soup or a fish sauce that has it in it and eat a little bit. If you get the reaction, then you know. The same for nitrates and sulfites....
  11. Patty, do you happen to remember where you read about the insulin connection? I ask because my dad is now having trouble and I am hoping the article will help him. His blood sugar and bp are both too high. Thanks!
  12. Make that a "yes" for me too! I was having blood pressure spikes, which are gone now. In addition, the low carb diet was a great help. I do not take bp meds anymore, which is a good thing because I had a lot of trouble with them. I had worked through all of the classes of meds, except nitroglycerin...
  13. Oh, I know this one! This is a food allergy reaction to MSG, sulfites/ sulfates and nitrates/nitrites-- in my case at least. There may be other things that do this to you guys in particular, but for me these are the culprits. It can actually feel like a sunburn and it shows up roughly 20-...
  14. There are currently two brands (owned by the same parent company) that say all of their products are gluten free. NARS and Shisheido. Smashbox is pretty good, with most everything safe but the mascara. If you do a search here you will find lots of lists of gluten-free makeups. I posted a list...
