I am happy for you to find the root of the problem and can solve it. That is great about getting off the drug. I treat my doctor and she treats me as if she is a consultent. She is there when I need her. She never tells me to come back. She brings her hand held computer (she said) incase I ask a question which is too hard for her.June 19, 2012 at 3:09 pm in reply to: Canning and Preserving Questions for Gluten Sensitive #9925
I would try googling about the figs. I will check back if I find my “Stocking Up” cookbook has infomration on Figs. I think one can use lemon juice instead of vinegar. Make sure you tolerate lemon juice.June 19, 2012 at 3:08 pm in reply to: Canning and Preserving Questions for Gluten Sensitive #9924

I have had years of anemia inspite of getting plenty of iron in my diet. Doesn’t that point to a problem with the villi?
I contacted the Seventh Generation soap company and found that their product does not contain gluten. I was using it at the time. They said they are planning to get the label. I believe they did mention that their product does have soy. I have been okay with washing dishes every time.
I don’t know how to get the message accross to my family. I am not buying any more to start with. The thing is I am a mother. Now, I don’t feel right to wash the dishes if they had gluten. Do you know that my self image is all wrapped up in what I can do for my family? I just hope they will decide to go gluten free for support. They are genetically set up for it anyway.
Thanks for what you did in quitting smoking for your Dad.June 1, 2012 at 9:44 am in reply to: I am afraid to eat dinner with people But atleast my family is starting to realize: #9910
Thanks for the info. I have a son with a yeast infection and he was raving about the salad that gave me problems. I didn’t know that it would give him problem. I think I am shedding some yeast too. My body seems to finally getting ahead of the problems. It is somewhat uncomfortable in the meanwhile.
I don’t think the doctor is necessarily to blame. They are trained and they are told what speeches to give. They really can only do what they have been taught, or they can lose their license. Unfortunatly, nobody can know everything about everyone’s body. We hope doctors will soon learn about gluten, but in the end and now we need to be responsible for our own health.
I don’t blame myself, because I didn’t know I was gluten intolerant. I don’t even think I am dumb. I kept doing what I knew. Doctors do just the same-keep doing what they know in attempts to help people. One person cannot know everything, even if they are called doctor. I am so glad that I finally know what my problem has been. Perhaps my family will not have to come to their whits end before considering not eating gluten.
I wish you well. I wish your doctor well too. I hope we can all learn from this and The Great Physician who during His first surgery created a woman.May 30, 2012 at 5:42 pm in reply to: Has anyone used essential oils to reduce symptoms of glutening? #9905
I usually just smell the oil. I have used eucalyptus and tea tree oil as drops on the fronts of shirts to prevent illnesses from going around my family of 7. I don’t know if that, homemade soap, or good food works. I do think essential oils show promise.May 30, 2012 at 10:18 am in reply to: I am afraid to eat dinner with people But atleast my family is starting to realize: #9902
That is not known, but it is clear my body does not like it. I am surely having some fungus problems, so perhaps they are connected.May 28, 2012 at 3:46 pm in reply to: Has anyone used essential oils to reduce symptoms of glutening? #9896
I will do; I have no desire for gluten. The esential oils that I have used, I have found very effective. That is when they are used for the right thing.May 28, 2012 at 7:55 am in reply to: Has anyone used essential oils to reduce symptoms of glutening? #9894
I would still like to know if anyone has used essential oil to reduce symptoms of glutening.
I make carob bars that are coconut oil, 1 cup almond meal 3 cups and 1 cup carob powder. I melt the coconut oil on the stove and than add the other ingredients. Variations include substituting coconut for part of the almond meal or adding a couple of drops of Peppermint oil to the mix. I also use to add 10 drops of stevia.
I make a shake.
I start with two cans of cold coconut milk.
I add 1 cup strawberries, raspberries or l TBSP carob
Blend in the blender.
I just thought this post needed a response. If people like these snack ideas I should possibly post them in the recipes.
Some of my posts disappear. Yesterday, I found a frequesntly asked question list that the administrater creates. Some of my things that had disappeared were in it! However, I couldn’t remember how I got there and therefore I can: not return! There was 8 or more pages of very interesting stuff.
Okay, I am off to be a favorite or least favorite Mom whatever the cost. I mean that I may be perceived as the least favorite Mom, but I need to do what is right to the best of my ability. If I can spare them from what I have been through = real blessing would come of it.May 25, 2012 at 6:53 pm in reply to: Can you still build muscle successfully with a thyroid condition? #9881
Wow! Please get well soon. Sorry you spent so many years not knowing What you are doing has to help those muscles if anything can. I thought 48 years of not knowing was long and the consequences very deep to pull out of. I guess we didn’t exactly volunteer for this, did we. We do it because we have to and someone cared enough to tell us!
