  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I've also been told that sushi rice is made with vinegar, which may or may not be gluten free. My gal looked up the vinegar and found that it contained gluten, so I was told sushi is out. Depressing? Yes. However, we could make it at home I suppose. -Sherri
  3. Chocolate has always given me problems. I don't get depressed, but I can get emotionally unstable, such as laughing so hard that I have to cry to stop, or crying for no good reason; that sort of thing. I can get really giddy or really weepy -- then it goes away. I figured it out in high school...
  4. This never happened to me before...today! It was either the Bumble Bar (which I believe to be the case), or some lip stuff I put on at the co-op. The reason I guess Bumble Bar is it didn't happen until I ate it. I used to eat them all the time, but I don't eat sugar anymore, and that has lots...
  5. I use liquid stevia from planetary something or else. I think it's interesting - it imparts sweet but without you being able to tell what kind of sweet - not like honey or maple or even cane sugar. However, if you use too much, you can taste it and it tastes a bit odd. I've used it in tea, in...
  6. mercola.com sells some, though it's not the kind I was using. I got mine at the food co-op/healthfood store. It's about $9/bottle, but has all the trace minerals in it. I'm going to go see if I kept the empty bottle...nope. My nutiritonist suggested "Real Salt" by someone or another.. Here...
  7. Yeah, Himalayan pink salt is the same. You'll go broke eating it, but it's yummy and nutritious.
  8. I just bought this stuff from my co-op called "Seasoning" made by Lydia's Organics in California. It's weird, but it tastes good. It contains: dehydrated carrots, celery, parsley, sprouted seeds (sunflower, almond, flax) herbs, and himalayan crystal salt. She says it's all organic and all gluten...
  9. I think I read that Celiac contributes to all other autoimmune diseases - if in no other way than in making the body suceptible. ITP is not genetic - they don't know what causes it. My doc thought maybe vaccinations or being on antibiotics a lot as a kid (I had lots of bladder infections). ...
  10. I was diagnosed in early twenties. They did a bone marrow biopsy to rule out leukemia, and they ruled it out. The treatment for ITP which you may know is Prednisone for life or removal of spleen. I started on 100 mg of prednisone a day and went down so that by the end of the month, was on about...
  11. Anyone else with other autoimmune diseases? I have ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura), though I'm currently untreated and just fine. It is when the spleen decides to kill off all your platelets until you bleed to death. Great! Now I'm thinking having Celiac all my life might've contributed...
