    What a great list. I recently went to Palm Desert to visit my parents and brought my own food, but got sick, probably because I used their dishtowels, sponges, cutting boards, and utensils. I’m still learning how much hidden gluten there is everywhere. It’s mind boggling. Trying not to get too paranoid, but I feel like a gluten phobic. Guess you have to be when you have severe gluten intolerance.

    Oh, yeah, I get sick when eating away too. Dr. Osborne told me that I eat at home every time now. I do what you mean about feeling gluten phobic, but what do ya do?

    Thankfully, I came out the other end of the fog. I feel like good things are ahead this morning.

    I make my own soap and shampoo. It is fun. There are many websites that show how to and recipes. The soap cleans extremely well and is very gentle on skin. I won’t go to a hotel or bathroom without it. A class on soap making is probably the best way to learn the topes. Just make sure that it is making soap from scratch. I have seen classes to learn how to melt down glycerin soap and remold it.

    I have discovered they are not safe for me. I could not say if that is generally true for celiacs and gluten sensitive.

    I have a skin reaction to them when I rub against them. I found this out when I used them as cover crop in the garden! Well, what else do you do with leftover grain you can no longer eat?

    Get him Well. Thanks for much for being his helper.


    “You might also have additional food allergy testing performed. I recommend EAB labs for this. “

    I looked into EAB a bit and saw they do Elisa testing. I had it done, so I am not clear what you meant yet. Either more items or a different test, or you didn’t realize that I did it. We can talk about it if I ever get to setting up a consultation.

    Lonnie, Thanks for the story. I hope it continues to be a good one!

    Yow! I think I could tell you where my small intestine is. The IgG is doing something. I can tolerate some pain.

    Editing to say that the pain is subsiding well.

    Wow! Something is still going on in that tummy. 2/21/2013 Namely rumbling, bloating, and gas.

    My chiro reviewed it and thought the IGg would be a good thing for me. I ordered and received it, so it will begin its work today.

    I plan to try some probiotic too, but I have another excellent brand.

    I am taking the Max Digest already.

    I reacted to cross contamination (I guess) by eating in someone else’s home. Next time I bring my own paper plate, pot holder, and fork!

    I got the excercise program and I think I can do it. I might just need my children to do it with me to stay motivated. That is strange, I usually like to excercise on my own.

    Oh, wow, it doesn’t sound like you have been having a picnic. Let me guess, you are not a volunteer either?

    I hope you will continue on the mend and feel better and better on your way.

    I got my chiro to read this and she will help me to study it.

    in reply to: Hi! I’m Kathy and new here. #10229

    Hi Kathy,

    I am a mother also. I grew up on Lucky Charms, Golden Grahams, and grapenuts. My Mom thought better of it while we were still young and avoided the Lucky Charms and sugary cereals. How sad I was then, but glad for it now.

    I must have missed your post somehow. I usually answer long before 5 days go by. Shame on me, I think you have quite a story.

    I got into natural foods, especialy home baked bread, to overcome health difficulties. Needless to say, I didn’t get better, instead I just about died 6 years back. At that time, supplements helped me tread water until I went grain free and began to heal from the root of my problems.

    You have a family history, I had none. My genetic test showed my genes were 4/4. Surprise!

    I have been grain free for about 7 months and am feeling more energetic. I have pondered at times an all raw diet, but I think my friends on it look sick. I have opted for a balanced protein to carb diet with small amounts of good fats with meals.

    I hope you will be able to incorporate a healing-for-you diet. I find the tests listed on this website to be helpful along with the videos and ideas presented. I like to write, so you can see my stuff all over the place.

    Oh, I must say that I am slightly younger than you. I dare think I will be 50 this year. Things are looking up.

    Greetings Tricia,

    I was not tested for auto-immune diseases, so I believe that to be the reason that I can’t say that I had any. I had a symptom of plummeting blood pressure when I stood up. I Could stand anyway with sheer determination sometimes! I was painfully fatigued, though.

    Supplements helped me tread water until we found out about my gluten problem 5 years later. I did a classic gluten free diet for a couple months and then found Dr. Osbornes. Since I already knew I had problems with corn I elected to exclude rice also to try it. I appreciate the information I found here.

    I sure hope your MS will be helped by gluten free.


    I would also like to point out that I am just about to pass up Jackie (2nd highest ) in number of posts to the forum. She hasn’t posted for a very long time. Sometimes, I feel like I am taking over the forum. I am having a good time doing it.

    in reply to: How to procede with way too many intolerances? #10225

    Just so others know: If you click on the name of the supplements, you can find out more about what they are for. I didn’t realize that at first.

    I don’t understand why I would want antibodies. I guess they aren’t the problem, but the lack of them is? NOt even fighting is part of the problem? I would feel frustrated that this information is way beyond me, but the MD is cluless also. Is the small intestine suppossed to make IGG? I think I saw that it is once.

    Yeah, I see the catch 22 of needing nutrients to recover and needing to absorb them to get them and have commented on that myself a couple of times.

    Hi Audra,

    I am sorry you had to suffer with eczema and fatigue, but am so glad you appear to have found the root! You also can/have been able to do something about it.

    Get well,
