  1. Hi Cramps spasems restless legs ect. are always a problem with calcium defficiency due to poor absorbtion. To absorb calcium you will absolutly need magnesium,& vitamin D, but a good multiple vitamin and mineral suppliment as well. Vitamin A blocks calcium absorbtion try to take the oil based vitamins at a different time, oils go well with your meals. I have for years struggled to find suppliments that not only are absorbed but allso utillized, and also careful as to the soarce that these nutrience come from, and be careful that they are gluten free as well. Through my profession I learned the value of a good calcium suppliment. Do you know that the lack of calcium can cause your heart to stop, and if it where know most young sports people especialy males have a high chance of having a heart attack due to calcium defficiency. I took prednisone several times due to skin loss due to drug allergy [penicillin]. It was do or die, and now I have very poor calcium absorbtion, prednizone is a calcium blocker. Your husband is probably suffering from stress and needs to take B vitamins as we get most of our B's from the grains in our diet, and be very carful of the soarce of the B's as this can be where they are derived. I am getting tired and need to get away from my desk for a while, I have trouble sitting for long periods I hope this helps. I have spent years researching nutrition due to C.F. which if probably due to C.D. Norma
  2. Hi Oldskool I have what sounds like the samething on my hands, the on set is a tramendous burning like you had your hands on the burner of the stove and the burning subsides but rarely gose away, I have tried ice packs on this and it dose no more than temporary relief, red round spots about 1/4 inch in diamiter with a white spot in the middle, which turns to scale in 24-48 hrs, on the other hand D.H. as explained by my Dr. as being a rash made up of 1/4-1/2 inch raised red sites with small liquid filled centers that are very ichy and tender and only subsiding when gluten free for days. If you find out what is the cause of you rash please please let me know as I have had this for several years, and had it when I was 14 yrs old, but when I was younger it just went away as quickly as it came lasting only afew weeks. ccrrgn
  3. Hi Congrad on new g-son, I am g- mom and soon to be gg-mom. It sounds right but nothing makes it sound good. I need to know if it is C.H. or D.H. I was told that it was celiac herpetiformis
  4. Hi I am plagued by the same itches, are yours different kinds of rashes, I was to the point of taking pain pills just to get a nights sleep once in a while. I also seen dermatologists allergists and reumatologists, and I was still itching. My friend suggested I stop eating gluten, this helped a bit, I lost one of the rashes, I got on the net and started to search different foods for thier inflamation factor, itche factor [ I F ] , and stopped eating the ones that are the biggest offender. Well I am almost itche free. It was a surprise to me to find flax seed to be such a help, I took oil for a long time, un aware that it took the whole seed to do the job, start with 1 tbsp freshly ground, no more than 3 tbsp a day. Omega 3 reduces I F Omega 6 increases I F. I also stop eating different food groups for 3-4 weeks at a time [citrus, nitshades, gluten ] and then reintroduce them 1 kind not group, at a time and have found some that my body is sensitive to and have eliminated them from my diet for the time being. I believe that by doing this and getting my skin and immune system back on track I will be able to eat some of these foods again in small amounts. I have found a N.P. that has been doing blood tests for me to rule out auto immune system dysfunction. My best suggestion to you is to learn all you can about the foods you eat and try eliminating on your own. You will be working on a positive note while the Dr. do thier small part. Since you are worried about celiac try eliminating the gluten first, and yes I know what a chalenge this is as I started in Dec. 07, and I am having some success. By the way blood tests will tell wether or not you are a celiac,or at least it will tell if you are allergic to gluten,[ when this allergy has damaged the bowel then you will be what the Dr. term a celiac and the damage is done], they are called titers, it is the same test to tell is your immune system is protecting you against deseases. I was a dog breeder for 40 yrs and titers where used all the time to check if the vaccines where working. the difference is you are checking to see if your immune system has built up antigenes and is attacking it self. This what I have been lead to believe. The Dr. have many ways of calling these rashes ie D.H. =C.H.=R.H. = eczemma, psoriases, I think it is all the same a dysfunctional immune system. Keep on keeping on and you will eventually find your answer Norma
  5. Hi I think if you have any kind of rash it might help for you to check the I.F. factor of the food you eat. I have C.H. and have started a list of foods that I eat and tried to lower the [ Inflemation factor] of my diet and I am getting some relief. As all my rashes are not caused by C H and although I did have alergy tests done they would not do foods There is a book that tells the I F factor of most of the foods and the foods are rated + or - and the idea is to stay away from the bad stuff.Like grape fruit causes inflemation flax seed reduces it ect.
  6. Norma This is for the Newbies like myself here are some sites I found that seem to help me. Phytochemicals: Nutrients Of The Future nutritional value of garlic nutritional value of goji berries Search HowStuffWorks and the web: How Goji Berries Strengthen Your Immune System glycoscience.com glycostory.com I am new to G F but have been battling immune problems for a while 1982 and I think I'm winning. My sister and I worked in the same factory and we both became ill with Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia. After being practicaly dumped by P.H.D. s and treated like pond scum, we tried everything and studied every thing possible and realize nutrition was the link the Dr. left out. Nutrition and detoxifying our homes eventually lead to some improvements in our health, infact we where doing really well. This is when my Dr gave me the results of blood test with a positive to Lupus. I was happy for the name to the problem skin that I had developed. I recieved some nutritional help from a dear friend who helped me search the internet, there is a lot of trash to wade through to get to golden nuggets of info at the bottom. Unless you have some one you trust that knows all your symtoms you have to do it your self. This site is wonderful, this way you get to share others success and we have encouragement in our failures. I always wondered why I could not take barley green.

Cranberries and flax seed= galic will flush the sinuses and the blood stream cranberries will fight the infection and flax seed freshly ground will help heal your sinuses boost your stamina as well as make you hair and nail beautiful.
  9. Hi I think I know of someone that you will want to see. I am a Canadian and my ins. won't pay but she has assured my friend that Fl. Health care does cover, Sally Marlowe,N.P. 727-723-1454 . This lady I meet at seniors fair she tests for food allergies. I have had rashes that got so bad I lost all the skin on 30% of my body due to Dr negligence an almost died. My rashes where caused by food allergies. You are their guardian and have a big job ahead of you, . I would suggest you find some gluten free vitamins and minerals for your boys. And I wish you well
  10. Hi From an other Trillium I would advise you that what you have done is your best test results.I to was annoyed when my Dr. would not do the tests for me, now I would have to go back to gluten to get an endoscopy that would tell the tale. I am not willing to compromize my health that way, and if I get proof will it effect my chances of getting travel ins. in the future. Thank you
  11. Hi I am from S. Ontario and was sent to see a specialist who refused to do th biopsey, how ever I did go off the gluten free diet and was positive of what I was dealing with. I had a rash every where except my face, I have I believe Celiac Herpiaformia. I wanted absolute proof until some one reminded me that travel ins. as well as life ins. will be refused me if I proseed and get documented proof. If you go on the strict diet for as little as maybe 2 weeks but preferably a month, you should be able to tell. This desease is one that developes serious problems and you are much better off staying off gluten and keeping your health. I have suffered needlessly when all I had to do was quit eating gluten for a while and then start again, I ate 3 slices of wheat bread toast and boy did I pay for it. Now day there is great resourses on the internet= recipies packaged supplies ect. Thank you
  12. HeyYou With the analynical mind I will join you or just add to what you have said, here is my history; was working so tired I would go and come with tears in my eyes, just plain tired enter good Dr did tests could find nothing , said we will treat it like mono, had to go back to work after 6 month with many tests , no change. 10 yrs later new Dr. ask for test for chronic fatigue I had read about it, and by now fibromialgia had set in and could not work, he refused said "you don't want to know for there is nothing we can do for you". I was not happy being sick looking well and having no answers, so I pushed and was tested after 12 yrs . The results were positive, and I aplied for disability and was refused because I had been out of work to long and our wonderful CPPlan did as much as give me the finger. Oh well the Dr.s treated C.F.ers like leaches . My sister and I went to a M.E. [Chronic Fatigue] meeting and half the women in my small town were there, these people had given up, We were not going to sit arround feeling sorry for our selves and this M.E. was not get the best of us . I was so fortunate that I had a sister that liked a good fight. Over the next 3 yrs we studied nutrietian and would try any thing any one said that would help. In our search we found a few thing out that helped, we went from being bed riden 16 hrs a day and being absent minded to the point of not knowing if we had eaten or not,starting and to caring for 5 acres of gardens.Just when I thought it couldn't get any better I developed lupus like symtoms. By this time I had out lived another Dr. and the new one did tests for lupus results were positive. I was getting sores on my hands that seem to develope deep in the tisue and within 2 days I would have open ulcers on my hands, up to 30 at a time, he treated it with penicilin even though I told him I was alergic to it and I lost all the skin on my face,neck,feet,legs handsand arms, [ I prayed to die] but not my body only where I had been tanned.The dermatoligist said it was an alergic reaction to penicilin but because it was not on my body it was also related to lupus which my G.P. said I did not have O.K. Now if I have lupus I can not get travel ins. Now I have developed D. H. I have at least 3 kinds of rashes on my body they have been identified as psorisas exzema and D.H. I really think that this prosses of immune illnesses has one origin,and I think you are right that there is one innitial cause and I hope we find it soon as I am getting dang tired of the fight. What we need is a few good Dr.s that do not have to scare everyone into thinking they are gods. I am sure I am not the only one that knows how many they kill every year. Sorry about that negativity. I am sure everyone knows that does not work. In my studies I found out that in the U.S.A. a study was done on the nutritional value of the produce in 1929 and again in 1956 they discovered that the produce had lost 75% of it nutritien and in Canada the same study done between 1986 & 1996 and 25% was lost. Now if you take the 25% left in 1956 an decreace it by 25% every 10 Years scince then you will reallize where we have to begin. My daughter was left unable to care for herself let alone for her 4 children of which the youngest was 2.5 yrs old or to run her thriving busines. The baby is now 10 and my daughter not only survived but put her business back on top and sold it, as it was grooming dogs and was very hard on her health.Through determination nutritional suppliments and help from the Lord she is my insperation Be inspired be thank ful for each new day. Every day we rise up in the morning ready to do battle with the negative forces that press in against us and thankful that we have freinds that stand with us. Knowing they will pick up the fight and continue. My daughter had an accident that destroyed the front and center lobes of her brain as well as damaging her lunge & kidneys sheared her rotator cup on her right arm, broke her colar bone her shoulder blade and several ribs.Yes she lived and we have no reason why we should give up.
