About Me

Freelance artist, have my own website and am on several sites for art jobs. Have my Bachelor's in Media Arts and Animation and I will go far with that, I got enough drive to fuel a rocket ship.

Christian Non-denominational which means I choose God, Christ, the Holy Spirit and the Bible as my guides and I leave it at that.

Am also a wife and mother of two. Still recovering from past cancer, scoliosis, and Celiac Disease. Am a highly reactive celiac person aka: cross contamination is big for me. Allergic to pain killers, lactose intolerant, etc.

We are in college debt like most people our age, about $152,000 and interest makes that nearly impossible to over come.

Look forward to getting to know people on this site and helping out as best I can. Also am interested in learning new things.

  1. Thanks 1seperateladysaved, I like your encouragement! :D Thanks Mr. Wheat Free, I will look those sites up, I've got a pretty sweet nutrition book that's very detailed in the known Vitamins Minerals and Herbs.
  2. So... Oncologist doctors and Licensed Naturopathic doctors are still not respecting each other in this valley at least. Doesn't surprise me. I the client am in the the middle. It's like a tug-o-war game really. One person says this, another person says that. There is absolutely no reason under the sun why a oncologist doctor can not respect nutrition. There is equally no reason why a Licensed Naturopathic doctor can't speak with the oncologist doctor before referring a patient. Yup. That's fun for me. I'm trying to explain things after being gluten-ed for a week by the wrong tea (my fa
  3. Well well well.... Not surprised. Nor scared. I may have cancer again. I am going to go WHOLE HIPPY NUTS THIS TIME! BooYAA! I'm allergic to pain killers: no surgery for me. Thank GOD! I'm not interested at all in chemo or radiation again. Been there done that. They will want to bone marrow transplant, I will not tolerate pain killers nor that transplant without painkillers. lol I am however FAR more aware of what to research, how much to supplement, how little and signs to look out for. I DO have a Naturopathic Doctor licensed and NOT a quake to monitor what I choose to do nut
  4. The battle ground.... Lymph nodes going up my neck. Nodule 9mm on the back of my right thyroid lobe. (Hard to palpate) Unknown battle ground in chest cavity. Weapons.... selenium 100mcg x2 each day. (breakfast, dinner) Vitamin E 400 I.U. x2 each day. (To process the selenium better) licorice root tea x2 a day. (helps with menstrual, adrenal and immune) Intolerance Complex x3 each meal (for digesting more than just gluten) Copper 2mg x1 each day (immune boost, oxygen to cells boost) Ginseng Supreme complex x1 each day (energy) multi women's vitamins (3 pills a day recommended on bot
  5. Making additions to my supplements today.   Celiac's are low in selenium. Selenium is a super antioxidant and can do many more good things for health. I'm taking 100 IU in the morning and 100 IU in the evening. The Vitamin E that helps selenium absorb is in the mail! :D I am concerned about leukemia because I take iron drops to get my period to come. Otherwaise it is a dry barren wasteland with angry menstral emotions. Not a good combo, there is no relief without the 'flow'. I am consistant and well with only one menstral cycle a month thanks to the hormone creams. I take them as inst
  6. The little dude is 3 weeks and 10 lbs. already Which is fast. He's smiling, making valiant efforts at holding up his head and frowning at everything that is perplexing. Very cute stuff. So far he's breast feed 90% of a full 24 hours and the other is formula (similac "advanced" formula). The similac supposedly is suggested as a gluten free on this site by people who have looked into it, but the can does not say gluten free. I want to contact the company and get their word for it but others have tried and were given somewhat of a run around. But altogether, baby doesn't have bad reactions when
  7. This is one healthy baby boy! After 11.5 hours of labor with a midwife and assistant watching closley, my husband and I had our baby boy in our arms! :D He is 20 inches long, 7.14 lbs, and had a 14 inch around head! He came out healthy as a horse, nothing of concern! WOW Thank God! His little finger nails were even longer than mine (past his fingertips) which explains the scratching inside :S hehe Our next adventure is nursing, major lack of sleep, and bonding with our baby boy Totally excited and happy about this, and I've finally got the womanly curves that I should of had years ago,
  8. I've had this a few times, Chiropractor and I thought it might be related to my scoliosis. Vertebrae and or muscle cramp disrupting the neck or something. Later I learned, it does happen on my back every time, it's part of the melatonin in the base of the brain over producing. Not sure why or how, could be food allergies. Since I've gone gluten-free I no longer have these sleep paralysis episodes. It is very frightening. Couldn't breath or move, only thing I could move is the scm muscles in my neck, slowly turn my head right and left and got out of it. That's why I thought it was a mus
  9. A lot has happened since I last blogged. There are obivous reasons for me being tired; I have two kids under the age of 3, I'm a celiac, I've got hypoglycemia...yadda yadda. There are not so obvious reasons; chest pain at night, ache down the arm, lymphnodes swollen up neck (Cat scan confirmed), noduel on thyroid (cat scan confirmed), scar tissue in left cerebral hemisphere (MRI scan). My only concern is the swollen lymph nodes. The experience with lymph nodes was non hodgkins lymphoma. I seem to be an angry bear when I eat or drink sugary stuff. My neck seems to swell up more too. I g
  10. Sounds like you have already solved your question. You've got a history of IBS which is something that flares up when it wants to (usually stress is it's trigger), you've got yourself scheduled for a colonoscopy, which will show doctors if you have polyps or colon cancer. That should clear up those questionable issues. You'll know if you have them after that. When you were off gluten, you had less bloody stools, more regular movements and felt better I'm assuming. There is a clear exercise that you conducted that got you good results, you got off the gluten. IBS can sometimes seem like Celiac
  11. Obviously I'm not good at titling my blogs, lol, but the latest events of the Gluten Free struggle is what I'm posting here. I've forgotten about my thyroid. Conveniently I'm sure, when I was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma, I put off dealing with the nodules on my thyroid for years. It's been 9 years. I think I was hoping getting gluten free would cure them. But they have been super active, being I am easily swayed into stressing out over things and consuming sugar to supplement the need for energy and happiness. So those last two have changed. I no long consume mass amounts of sugar
  12. Looks like their carob isn't certified gluten free according to their search bar. Searching under the listing of "Gluten Free" does not show a safe carob. I didn't know if you noticed that if you are gluten intolerant. Doesn't look safe.
  13. That's exactly right! Meat, rice and vegies. The only extras were the ones that I knew and tested before and still feel confident about; Silk coconut milk (for my calcium/magnesium/etc), CeliAct vitamins and my MRM gluten enzymes. *I added my Rice cheese later, kept up with the Waluby Greek yogurt and drank water from the tap. Then the Rice Dream Organic vanilla ice cream. There were slip ups of course: #caffeine- I am totally allergic! Symptoms never fail. # not rinsing off my mouth at night to get a drink of water (working off the fact that my husband goes to bed not gluten
  14. With two kids to tend to, glutened by who knows what, and allergic to other stuff, I am finding it hard to survive. At night I have horrible nightmares, have had since I was a kid, but the glutening makes them worse. Also having heart palpitations, tightening, lethargy. Very tired all over as well. The last few weeks the glutening has damaged my gut and I guess I am consuming things that make it swell normally, so going to the restroom is defiantly difficult and painful. I'm loosing quite a lot of blood in doing so. Getting dizzy, light headed, weak, exhausted, out of breathe. SO I'm taking 5
  15. I seem to be allergic to more than just gluten, many more things. I need someone who is a specialist in severe autoimmune responses. Someone that can help me with a diet that will keep me from dying. lol That would the particular thing. I've had the "arm bending" test for other allergies and what I supposedly needed. I've had celiac panels (2) and tested positive for both. I have other food allergy responses and am unable to keep up with the confusing chaos. I might have to move out of the small town I'm in, with my husband and kids, to get access but I am looking for options. We are in Cl
