About Me

I'm a diagnosed celiac with food allergies, vocal cord dysfunction, sulfite sensitivity, and a mast cell activation disorder (MCAD). This latter causes me to be super sensitive to gluten, and my reactions to it very nasty.

I have only recently received my MCAD disorder and am still exploring what this means, but I hope to have it all figured out and back on my feet again in no time. 

  1. One possibility might be that your reaction that you consider a gluten reaction might actually be a combination of things you react to when they are together, or the gluten reaction is worse when you react to something else at the same time, or sometimes not even a gluten reaction at all. Sulfite...
  2. I don't know that there have been any studies on gluten particles specifically, but there have been studies on various allergens and whether particles are present in the air after processes such as boiling, frying, etc.... So far, the evidence is that there are enough particulates aerosolized by...
  3. Yeah, I have before. :-( Toothpaste sounds like a good thing to check. Another you might want to check is if he uses chapstick or any other lip balm - that frequently has gluten and he might not be thinking about it. There was a study on peanuts and kissing that had some interesting results...
  4. It's a possibility, yes. You're correct in that some people would get damage from this, and not everyone will show symptoms. It's a very frustrating situation, because some people don't seem to be affected by this - they do this, they feel fine, and their follow up tests are fine as well, as well...
  5. I've been grain free for about 2 1/2 years now. No grains, no grain derivatives (even corn derivatives like cornstarch, citric acid, xanthan gum, that sort of thing). I've tried to find ones I can eat, but so far, they all make me sick, so they're out of here. Paleo, primal, and raw foods diet...
  6. I would double check again exactly what your child shouldn't eat and why, and get a good Dietician to help figure it out. Is it something like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sucrose_intolerance ? You'll want to make sure that a celiac knowledgeable doctor diagnoses something like that,...
  7. Hi, how are the kids? I haven't seen you here much lately.

  8. I think you could grow beans via a container garden, yeah, but I don't know about the yield. We used a native bean and it had a small yield per plant, but the variation of yield for different varieties might be a lot. They're pretty easy to grow, though, they just need a lot of nutrients in the...
  9. Heya! Yeah, I didn't have a food processor before all this either - got a teeny 3 cup one on sale for about $15 bucks finally, and then this year everyone chipped in and got me this super studly one that I can't wait to use! (Just got it a few days ago...sooooo shiny... ). Now if only I can...
  10. I used to use Rancho Gordo dried beans, ordered on-line from here: http://www.ranchogordo.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=SFNT&Store_Code=RG However, my allergic reaction to just a few beans decided to branch out to all of 'em, so I haven't tried these in a few months, now. :-( On...
  11. I have not looked into any genetic differences between modern vs. ancient forms of wheat, so I couldn't speak knowledgeably about that. However, there does seem to be some evidence that even in ancient times, celiac disease existed, so whatever differences exists, ancient wheat doesn't seem to have...
  12. I just tried that this year! Although I'm such a crappy farmer...I think out of y entire crop, I got maybe a bowlful of beans, and that was it, LOL.
  13. Wow - I'm learning so much stuff just reading all the responses! So excited to see so much new information - didn't even think of having both issues at once, although of course that's entirely possible, so I don't know why I didn't! Makes me want to get a closer look at my daughter's vitamin...
  14. From what I've seen, those with Gluten Ataxia are often undiagnosed because there are so few doctors who even have a CLUE what to look for, let alone how to diagnose it. So there's not a lot of us with official gluten ataxia. A few more of us at least have recognition from the doctor re: nutritional...
