  1. Ennis, thank you so much for this information. All of your help reminds me that I am not the only one with gi issues. I do not post often, but whenever I read stuff here, I learn so much info. Thank you!!!!!!!!!! After reading through the link, I am so motivated to buy my own ice cream maker and make my own. Ice-cream (gluten-free and dairy free) made from coconut milk really is the only processed thing I buy. I do lots of cooking and avoid processed foods. I am going to learn how to make my own ice-cream. Interestingly, one brand on the list, Nana Creme, is free of the top 8 allergens and is made in a dedicated gluten-free facility. I ate that, and had a reaction. Most likely to something else that is in it. But, I have a "double-wammie" of celiac disease and ulcerative colitis. So who knows what I was reacting to. Thanks again.
  2. Thank you so much! The post about gluten-free ice cream in a dedicated facility would be great. Thanks again and than ks for the link to luvicecream.
  3. I have Celiac Disease and am also sensitive to dairy. I ate dairy free ice-cream made with coconut milk and certified gluten-free. I had a reaction from something in there. The brand was So Delicious Coconut Milk ice-cream. I checked with the manufacture and it is processed on shared equipment with gluten that claims to be cleaned between runs. I know this can cause cross-contamination. I also checked with a different brand, Nado Moo, which is also dairy free and gluten-free. It is also processed on shared equipment that is cleaned between runs. Does anyone know of a truly gluten-free (not something produced on shared equipment with gluten containing grains) and dairy free ice-cream type of product? Thanks in advance.
  4. On my recent trip to Eureka (northern CA), I found it difficult to impossible to eat out safely. Luckily, I packed gluten-free freezed dried food created by a company called paleo to go. I ate that and food that I purchased from a local natural grocery store. I did not feel safe eating at the few restaurants that offered gluten-free options, so I just did not eat out. Northern CA is a great place for hiking and enjoying the outdoors. The redwood trees are amazing. But if you visit and need to eat gluten-free, be prepared.
  5. Hi, I am looking for a functional medicine doctor in the Chicago area? Any recommendations? I have never been to one. I have celiac disease and ulcerative colitis. What should I expect from a functional medicine doctor?
  6. Hi AristotlesCat. I am new here. I read through most (but not all) of the posts under this discussion. I beleive that message boards like this should be a place of support, so this is what I know has worked for me. I am a coffee drinker with both Celiac Bisease and Ulcerative Colitis. What has worked for me is a paleo diet. And, at times when I FEEL my body reacting to something, I use the autoimmune protocol paleo (AIP) for a while, until I FEEL better. When I was first diagnosed with these two conditions, I did an elimination diet and added one food back in at a time in a certain order. That provided me with lots of information about what my body does or does not like. I stay away from processed certified gluten-free foods, b/c for me, other stuff (additives, emulifiers, perservatives, etc.) have caused irritation, even if the product is certified gluten-free. If you are having issues, I would recommend at least looking into AIP and/or paleo. It has been a complete game changer for me. But, I know that what works for one of us, may or may not work for another. I hope you are feeling better.
