  1. Most of my migraines cleared up after going gluten-free. However, I have had a few bouts of them coming back, and a lot, and it was only after discovering another food I should...
  2. Congrats, Vincent. I know how much this means to you. Yeah!!! Stephanie
  3. About being allergic - I have always had a stomach reaction to black tea. Usually one cup is ok, but two days in a row or more and I get stomach problems and headaches, feels like...
  4. Jackie - that is a good one! I'll file it away, though my new workplace is very supportive. Of the 6 employees, one is allergic to garlic, one is on Weight Watchers, and the third...
  5. Belladonna means pretty poison(ous) for me, as I can't have nightshades (tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, eggplant, kava kava, tobacco, and belladonna). I am looking at a bottle of...
  6. Some day, SOME DAY, I hope to see a faux-reo (fake Oreo), a pie crust mix, a killer baking mix that everyone on this forum raves about that doesn't have potato. I know that's asking...
  7. I have been getting some joint discomfort (not full-on pain) in my hand joints and sometimes my feet/ankles. I started getting this last spring after getting glutened. Then I had...
  8. It's a possibility that it will help you. I was misdiagnosed as bipolar and had episodes, but since going gluten free I have been very stable. Actually, things improved when I initially...
  9. I tried a sample Zelnorm a couple of weeks back and bloated up like I couldn't believe! It was horrible, and I felt like I was going to have the runs at any second for about 16...
  10. I like Quinoa Flakes, by Ancient Harvest. They are really good and have a lower glycemic index than cream of rice. There is another kind I found at the health food store, an...
  11. I went through a phase of trying to buy name brand Advil, but I'm such a cheapy that was hard. I have been taking costco brand (kirkland) generic ibuprofin with no problems. I have...
  12. Totally funny! Especially the EnerG bread, however, have any of you tried the light tapioca yet? Seriously, it isn't bad. Toast it and put butter on it... it's pretty decent. OK...
  13. I have noticed that when I have gluten, I get itchy around my collar bone area. This sometimes happens when I have corn, too, but mainly non-organic corn. I used to always have...
  14. This is what my doctor told me. When I first went gluten free, two weeks into it I was feeling better and told my doctor. He said don't worry about blood tests, positive dietary...
  15. I get what celiac3270's saying, but I think there needs to be another name. Celiac comes from Latin (I think Latin, maybe Greek?) for "stomach." While I have stomach symptoms, I...
  16. Welcome to the wonderful world of DQ1! I have one copy of DQ1 and it's a barrel of monkeys. For more info on the glories of this gene, you may want to check out this forum:...
  17. Rachel - if you are avoiding sweets for possible candida reasons, you can still use stevia. It has no sugar in it whatsoever. Nothing for the bad bacteria to feed off of. It...
  18. OK, if I can get this recipe to work, you will be one of my favorite people. I don't see any reasonf or me to make any substitutions on this, wow! So rare! Thanks! Stephanie
  19. Sucks... I liked them, but not unless I also had liberal amounts of brown sugar and cream. I can still have the cream but the brown sugar ain't doable for me, so it's just not the...
  20. God, so I'm a tree-hugging granola (without the oats) and I didn't realize that was a bad, uppity thing. I have so much to learn. Sorry if that offends anyone... Here's a sweet...
  21. I, too, had a positive ANA test, 1:320 the first time, then 1:160. Both are positive, one, obviously is higher than the other. I was sent to a rheumatologist who also tested me...
  22. Pregelatinized starch can contain gluten. It's one of those iffy ingredients. I try to avoid it, it is in one pill I was taking but I got rid of it... Stephanie
  23. I have been enjoying some real honest-to-god organic regular egg nog for the past month when I cracked open a carton of the Silk expecting to be disappointed. That stuff is REALLY...
  24. I tried the nuvaring and didn't like my reaction. However, I was on various BCPs for 13 years and off for the past 4, and I'm beginning to think that my emotional problems in my...
  25. Someone posted a while back either on this forum or another that the had a newsletter from their pediatrician with an article indicating that while there is a portion of Celiacs...
