Interesting, Bren58, that you had the same reduction in joint pain by going GF. I just got my DH to try it with me last year – he has incurable kidney disease. Right now he’s in partial remission, so that's something to be grateful for. I will look for those brands of bread you mentioned… I’m not looking forward to baking my own, but it may come to that. Thanks for the link – I’ve bookmarked it!
RebzAmy – what a relief that you figured out what was making you so sick. We belong to a Small Group in our church, and we meet twice a month. Dessert is always served. I took a poll for food sensitivities and found out that we are diabetic, gluten-free, dairy-free, corn-free, and nut-free. I try to make several dishes so that there’s something for everyone. I used to avoid dairy, until my MO told me to stop drinking soy milk, and try Lactaid. It’s regular milk that has all the lactose removed from it. It doesn’t seem to bother me. I wish we had your “Genius” bread here… I guess I really will have to learn to bake.
Wintersocks – yep MO = Medical Oncologist. I read that study you provided the link to, and the author didn’t go into any detail at all about the “marked reduction in the risk of breast cancer”, did he?
I do recall that one study I looked at hypothesized that due to celiac, women who were severely affected with the disease were generally thinner and had a much lower body mass index than the general population, leading to a possible theory of reduced estrogen production in the body, and therefore less estrogen-driven breast cancer.
I’ll see if I can go back and provide some links. Yes, I do feel the GF diet is helping me. It did pretty much eliminate my fibromyalgia pain two years ago, but later on, I was disabled by the joint pain from Arimidex after one year. Now I’m one month into Femara and am hoping for the best. At least now I’m moving more.
Ladies – I spend a lot of time on Pinterest, so am always pinning GF recipes. Here are the most popular websites where those recipes come from:
