About Me

Hold you head high and smile, it makes OTHERS feel good.

  1. Do the same today and everyday until your appointment. Meditation, Music, and get some Chamomille Tea,. Limit your caffeine and sugar. Take walks, get exercise. Eat good gluten food but try to stay away from fast food because it's greasy and just not good for you. Make sure you get the equivalent...
  2. The "Made in the same facility" I think is just fine. "Made on the same line" is worth more consideration. Colleen
  3. Victor, Did the Doc test you for Celiac? What were the results? Why are you worried about an endoscope and colonoscopy already. A colonoscopy does not test for Celiac. Your bloodwork so far has been negative. You really have to settle down and go thru the steps with your Doctor. No one here...
  4. Are you seeing a Rheumatologist? If not, you should make an appointment to talk about your results. Good luck Colleen
  5. Some glutening symptoms can last up to a month or more. It can take some time for everything to settle down again. Also, there is no minor glutening. Any amount will start the autoimmune cascade. I'm sure you'll be feeling better soon Colleen
  6. Hi Victor I gonna be straight with you.....'settle your ass down'. Seriously, you're gonna be fine. If there was a serious problem with your spleen the blood work would show it. I put my money on the motorcycle fall. A lot of veterans here were close to being, or were, physically disabled...
  7. You're all over the place huh....understand that perfectly. I was quite sick when diagnosed and was afraid to eat... Anything. Every time I ate before gluten-free hurt. I would have pain before I even finished the meal. Food = pain so I ate very little. I started gluten-free with juicing for...
  8. No reason not to mix it up and eat both . For white I prefer Jasmine rice. For brown, any long grain will do. If your a salt hound like me I make a bunch of Jasmine and pour in a large can of 100% tomato sauce and some pink hymalayan salt. Kind of soupy but kinda not...lol. It freezes well in...
  9. Wheat Allergy Alert: General Mills 10/5/2015 General Mills is voluntarily recalling several days of production of Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios cereal produced at its Lodi, California facility on certain dates in July of this year because of an undeclared allergen – wheat – with pot...
  10. I've never had problems with caramels. I usually have a candy dish of Werther's full all the time. No troubles. I like the coffee ones too.
  11. Maddi, stick to simple foods while you heal. Anything can make you sick. Don't start eliminating foods until there is a reason. I think you need to settle into the new diet, don't eat out and heal. Keep anxiety and stress low as this can also effect your immune system Colleen
  12. Pure coconut oil is gluten free. Unless a company certifies a product gluten free you will always get the same answer. They will give no guarantees. This is standard practice and should not discourage you from using a product. As far as makeup is concerned, I only worry about what touches my...
  13. With the upgrade there are some things to iron out. Please be patient :). Put any particular problems in this thread so we know if it's something we don't know about yet. Thanks.
  14. If the other tests show nothing and your still concerned ask for a CBC and Comprehensive Metabolic Panel. Those two blood panels are a good start to see if something is off. Colleen
  15. I'll jump in here. Constipation has been a life long companion for me. All the miralax and fiber were useless to me. My internal and external 'roids' all had to be removed. At that point I took a lot of dulcolax to go to the bathroom. I had to stay close to diarrhea because of the hemorrhoids...
