  1. For me it was 3 weeks of daily penicillin shots at 21 months of age. Then off and on through life until 18 months of daily tetracycline plus mega shots of penicillin following an accident. Shortly after that I developed not only celiac, but was diagnosed with multiple food and chemical allergies/sensitivities. I know now that I was undiagnosed through childhood because of the symptoms I remember having: cramps, alternating constipation/diarrhea, mouth sores, mood swings, fussy eating, unexplainable low grade fevers associated with fatigue, and later in my early 20's - unexplainable, transient, periodic pain during intercourse. I hope they find a way to treat the underlying problems, i.e. gut biota? instead of throwing enzymes and pharmaceuticals at the symptoms.
  2. I would recommend Medicine Mama's Bee Magic - the ingredients are limited to: 0rganic olive oil, beeswax, honey, propolis extract, Bee pollen, and Royal jelly. It is kind of heavy, so for use on my face I would work it into my hands and then lightly pat a moist just out of the shower face. OR just use some organic olive oil (again lightly) until your skin quiets/calms down. Avocado oil is also calming and nourishing to the skin. Unless you have infection those "flare up" medicinal creams only treat the symptoms anyway. If I used those creams you are talking about my skin would be red as Rudolph's nose! I drink lots of water, almost no liquor or cola or caffeine, stay away from yeast, and use very pure and simple products. My skin is the most beautiful it has been since early childhood. Good luck!
  3. I had a hard time tracking down my problems as well. A few things that are considered gluten free that were causing me the same grief as gluten were white (likely wheat based) vinegar, alcohol (also likely wheat based), and xanthum gum (who knows?). Also, beware of natural flavors, as that can hide grain-based alcohol, which is allegedly gluten-free but rips my gut up.
  4. I am not saying it is not the heat, but ozone could be a contributing factor. Where I live, hot sunny days often come with high ground ozone levels. High ground ozone can cause migraines. I am pretty much guaranteed a migraine when ozone levels get too high, and it can take a couple of days to get rid of it.
