About Me

Diagnosed celiac disease 2015 high gliaden & all gluten antibodies + response to gluten free diet.  Thalassemia beta.

  1. Have you heard about Dr. Jonathan Wright, a very well known naturopathic doctor and he is located in TUKWILA (just south of Seattle) ! He has a local radio show on Saturdays 3pm. I had gone round and round with traditional medicine and got nowhere on my ever increasing issues, severe allergies...
  2. Prior to diagnosis, I did not have the so-called typical symptoms, no diarrhea or constipation, but I did get that fluttery feeling. Not so much in the stomach, but definately lower in the abdomen. I had a sonic vaginal test once and they found no female problems, but did note a lot of peristalsis...
  3. I looked back at my records working with my previous naturopath (the one who diagnosed me with Celiacs and I had all kinds of vitamin deficiencies), and see that I did have a B1 deficiency. My notes say that the B1 greatly improved my energy, no notes about asthma. I'm not sure why I am no longer...
  4. I was undiagnosed with Celiacs for decades, as I did not have any intestinal issues. In that time, the sphincter of the stomach was damaged and I now have acid reflux and a healing hiatal hernia. This lets acid and fumes up the esophogus that you can inhale and it gets into your lungs, and can cause...
  5. Are you cooking gluten food in your home at all? It is almost humanly impossible to not cross contaminate with gluten in the kitchen. I recommend that your home is completely gluten free. All pets should be gluten-free also, as they lick you, or their fur, which you touch. Some people do all...
  6. I have used all their stuff. They have all the info on the benefits to each on their web site.
  7. Andalou is all I use, I highly recommend. I'm 63 and people think I'm 40. I was picking up a prescription and the pharmacist asked if it was for my mother. I said no, it's for me. She about passed out. Gluten free. I order from their web site. Sign up for their newsletter to get discounts. It seems...
  8. I have severe asthma and I react really badly to steroids, so far, the albuterol inhaler is my only option. I have been prescribed chloroquinine as a preventative.
  9. Spicely brand https://www.spicely.com/ is certified gluten free. I have used theirs and it's good. This brand is not everywhere, but you can order online. They even have vanilla extract made with sugarcane alcohol, not grain alcohol. I also order from http://mortonbassett.com/. These are marked...
  10. I don't have any issues with the Procapslabs.com nutrients. I take high doses now of their D3. My D was also low and refused to go up, I was eating eggs and all the other sources, but no help. I added their K2 (K helps D to be absorbed) and a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar just before the meal...
  11. I could not tolerate the steroid sprays as after awhile they made my blood pressure super high. Be careful, they are steroids and you really don't want to be on those long term. I had some acid reflux before I knew I had Celiac's and most of it went away after quitting gluten, but I still have...
  12. Yes, to quote an ENT doc I saw before I was diagnosed with Celiac's..."it's a train wreck in there." I ended up getting allergy shots for years. The pin prick test showed I was allergic to everything except the negative saline control one. I was diagnosed with Celiac's in July and my next re-test...
  13. For me it does. When I get glutened, the best way to describe it is how you feel when you know you are just getting a really bad flu. I don't get the bad intestinal symptoms others describe, but I do feel a fluttery weird feeling in there. Aches and weakness are the majority of my symptoms. For...
  14. Yes, you can get a medical diagnosis without the biopsy. I did, and I got an official letter from that doctor with that diagnosis in case I ever need it (but I have not yet). It takes 3 things: 1. positive on the blood tests 2. positive on DNA test 3. response to the gluten free...
