  1. This message from Health Canada did not provide a convincing argument. There were no references. There are a significant number of references that say it isn't safe. I think you know that there has never been an exhaustive, long-term, dual blind study on the safety of glyphosate because nobody...
  2. Don't find much merit in this idea. Humans weren't designed to eat grasses. Besides, in America, hybridized dwarf wheat is often sprayed with glyphosate to cure it for harvesting, so this crap can't possibly be made safe to eat anyway.
  3. Welcome to the Black Hole of allopathic medicine. Prozac is infamous for turning guys into "its". Why? Like most Big Pharma solutions, it is incompatible with the body's chemistry. If you think you are getting depressed, I suggest you find a doc who knows how to do comprehensive thyroid testing...
  4. The enterolab test corroborated what I already knew, in my case. So why are you so concerned about tests? Why don't you just have her go gluten free and see what happens to symptoms? BTW, my dairy sensitivity went away after I had been gluten-free for several years.
  5. Low heart rate and lethargy could be hypothyroidism. Ever had a full thyroid panel (TSH,FT3,FT4,rT3,TPO antibodies,TG antibodies)? If gluten destroys gut integrity, autoimmunity follows. Possibly thyroid autoimmunity.
  6. Gluten sensitivity affects a much larger proportion of the population than the official 1:133 celiac figure. You are doing exactly the right thing by kicking gluten out of your life.
  7. .... (continued) the celiac.com website is buggy. To continue: if you have access to medical lab testing, the Tissue Transglutaminase and Gliadin Antibody tests should be able to tell you if you have celiac. In light of the anxiety, depression, and brain fog symptoms, a full thyroid panel seems...
  8. I can't know what the cause of your anxiety, depression, and brain fog really is. However, you should know that all of those symptoms are classic hypothyroid symptoms. Gluten can cause gut destruction (called enteropathy or "leaky gut"), leading to autoimmunity directed (usually) at your endocrine...
  9. Don't let celiac ruin your most productive years like it ruined mine! Get tested!! Gluten rips up the gut, causing enteropathy/"leaky gut" that provokes autoimmunity. When you mention your mom's low T4 and your anxiety/depression/brain fog/etc., all I can think is "Hashimoto's"! Which is followed...
  10. I had full-blown silent celiac. What I found was that the gluten enteropathy made me dairy intolerant. Once I had been off gluten a long time and fixed my nutritional and endocrine problems, dairy was no longer a problem. However I now use only cultured dairy, e.g. Kefir. I don't think your...
  11. Since you have had testing and symptoms subsided when you went off gluten, why do you have to bother with biopsy?
  12. Don't trust an answer of "normal" from an MD. Get copies of all your tests and get a book like the Lavalle book that explains what they mean. I have no use for psychotherapists; none of them understand the biology of health problems, and the effect of health on brain function. I can understand...
  13. TSH is not sufficient to diagnose thyroid. Your doctor is ignorant. Find a doc who does all these tests and knows what they mean: TSH FT3 FT4 rT3 TPOab TGab.
  14. Have you had hormone levels analyzed? Esp., your thyroid, by a doctor who does all of the relevant tests?
