  1. I've made more gluten-free pie crusts than I can count. Seriously. Been playing with flours and ideas quite a bit, and what has held true for pie crust is that no gums or binders will yield the best crusts. Also, a wheat crust is formulated with a considerable amount of fat, because that is what...
  2. Yup, I also used to get terrible nosebleeds that wouldn't stop for literally hours. Looking back, there were multiple factors, including candida, dairy, and gluten. Nutritional deficiencies also played a part, though from what I can tell this was a lesser issue. Thankfully, I haven't had even...
  3. Pardon me, as I was not aware that simply asking for clarification of your statements would be considered "trolling" you. However, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, and since it appeared that you possessed a certain level of knowledge on this topic, I'd hoped that you'd at least...
  4. I'd like to see some of those "case studies in the biomedical literature". Wait. Are you now differentiating between gluten intolerance and Celiac, saying that someone without Celiac who recovers from gluten intolerance wouldn't be seen as novel enough to publish, and does that mean you're...
  5. My reading on the subject is by no means limited to this board. If you can post some links to valid sources of information showing that gluten intolerance can positively and completely resolve itself, please do. It sounds as if you're saying that when gluten intolerance does resolve, nobody...
  6. Well, gluten intolerance does not go away, but if your sensitivity is not due to an immune response, I suppose there is a possibility that you might recover with time. However, I remain very skeptical of this, as I've never heard of it happening. In fact, many members of this board have stated that...
  7. One of my most noticeable symptoms of gluten intolerance was extreme thirst. Although there were symptoms from dairy, I didn't notice thirst from that. What I'd do in your case is to simply try eliminating dairy, and any other suspects you may have, and see how you feel. Then reintroduce one at...
  8. I find NOW Foods and Source Naturals are pretty good at labeling. Have you checked what they have on their respective websites?
  9. I also would recommend magnesium, especially the oxide form. Taken with orange or other citrus juice to magnify the effectiveness, magnesium can work where bulking laxatives don't. However, if your diet is lacking fiber, green veggies, fresh fruits, etc, then that would be the first thing to address...
  10. I don't trust Arrowhead Mills either. Got glutened by their flours, so that was it for me. I was looking for puffed millet and amaranth recently, and also didn't find any. For the puffed rice, suppose you take some rice cakes (Lundberg makes them gluten-free), and break them up? Either by hand...
  11. Whenever I've had bread fall after baking, it was due to too much liquid. I've also found that fats tend to make breads fall or not rise so well, thus I never use fats in breads. Fat tends to defeat the binders. This seems to be one reason why gluten-free bread recipes with fatty ingredients usually...
  12. Yeah, I know she isn't intolerant/Celiac (as far as she knows). However, seems to me many get a negative on tests, even though some antibodies are detected. So I wouldn't feel comfortable thinking that there are absolutely zero antibodies present. Plus I never say never, when gluten intolerance is...
  13. Though I haven't been looking for information on the subject, there have been many threads on this board about it. A search should turn them up. However, seems to me the consensus is that the gluten you ingest will effect the baby, not just via the milk, but right now, before birth. Again, I've...
  14. Yeah, I agree Wikipedia shouldn't be taken as the most authoritative source of information on any given topic. However, in this case, the Raynaud's article does track with what I've read elsewhere. And while not quite as comprehensive as the NIH article, does not appear to be inaccurate. So to...
  15. Magnesium and B vitamins (especially B12) have helped me quite a lot with cold extremities. Various other nutrients can help as well, such as zinc and omega-3s (flax/fish oil). Since going gluten-free and taking supplements, I don't even notice it anymore, and I'm not sure if it's still there at...
