  1. I agree that it's a disappointing article. Instead of offering helpful advice, it makes the case for why an emergency supply is needed and then directs you to her site to shop for the products. I understand the need to have sponsors to help support celiac.com, but I think this really blurs the...
  2. Agree massage can help, also Bowen therapy. I used to do massage, then started Bowen when the massage was no longer helping my back issues. I was amazed at how much such a gentle treatment helped. Now I do Bowen tune-ups every 6 weeks and am considering adding back a 90-minute massage in-between...
  3. I don't have an answer but one thing to check is whether the vinegar is actually distilled. There a Sarson's Distilled Malt Vinegar (UK) but if you look at their process on the their web site (how we make it), it's fermented and doesn't appear to be distilled (unless they use a different process...
  4. @Lou23 I don't know what might work for you but I recently went on an autoimmune diet because I felt there were other autoimmune issues that were causing system wide inflamation and pain. I am a celiac and gluten free for 15+ years. The diet is from The Autoimmune Fix, Dr. Tom Bryan, and involves...
  5. I use the generic loratadine tabs, AllerClear, from Costco. The bottle states that it's gluten free. I switched to it a couple of weeks ago to see if it would work better than the generic cetrizene HCL I'd been taking for a while, Aller-Tec, also from Costco. My allergies have been worse since...
  6. @GFinDC thanks for explaining how respond to a post. This is a test!
  7. Sorry Dayle. I thought I was responding to the original post by Inc. and that she/he started having problems after moving into an apartment. Obviously I don't know how to post on this forum.
  8. If I were in your situation given the timing I'd contact the appropriate local health dept. to see about having someone test your apartment. While you may be exposed to something you are allergic to, it is also possible that your are being exposed to something that would be toxic to anyone. For...
  9. Thank you posterboy for sharing the study information. I hadn't seen this one. Even though it's a very small sample size and not enough to confirm effectiveness for celiacs, it's a start. Hopefully there are other studies going on - I haven't looked into it and need to try harder to stay up to...
  10. The only information that seems to be available on gliadinx is from the outfit that sells it. I'm very leary of these products that people are desperate for and which are highly priced. A product to deal with incidental ingestion of gluten is what we dream of, but supplements aren't regulated enough...
  11. I just purchased some sugar free black cherry Halls cough drops. I had a reaction when I tried them about 10 years ago but thought they might be okay now based on forum posts. After just 2 drops I developed severe abdominal pain and headache, exactly the same as when I am glutened. I waited a...
  12. You might try Franz gluten free bread. They use a dedicated gluten free facility - at least in Oregon. Their Oregon facility also produces Canyon Bakehouse gluten free bread - at least they did as of a couple of years ago when I last communicated with them. I don't know about their facilities...
  13. It's too soon for me to say how quickly the B6 toxicity symtoms go away - especially the neurological ones which people say can take longer - but it does seem that some are subsiding, including the fatigue. Just very tired some days but most are better. My PCP did the complete blood count, complete...
  14. Have your neurologist check on vit B6 levels (pyroxidine). I've been gluten free more than 10 years but recently discovered I have toxic levels of B6 in my blood even though I was not taking very high B6 supplements, but still well above the MDR. You have to check the blood levels, because numbness...
