Gluten intolerance

Gluten intolerance, was the first time I heard about the problem that maybe 1 in 133 people suffer from, on the Dr. Oz show. I heard of the gluten free products before, vaguely on television, and just walking down the aisles of a large supermarket center. In these huge centers, you will find in the organic section, non gluten: breads, pasta, pudding, cereals, and sweets.

My mother suffers from osteoarthritis, and heard on the Dr. Oz show that it could be one of the symptoms for it. You can get a blood test, to determine if you have a gluten intolerance. The doctor has a check off sheet, where it is rarely tested for. On a blood test, there are many things, that you could test for. And many different sheets to boot. Usually a doctor will just test for what he thinks is wrong with you, but you could request a test for this also. Especially if you have stomach cramps, weakness, constipation, and diarrhea to name a few. Some of the symptoms are mild. The real name for this is Celiac Disease. Arthritis popped up as one of the possible, symptoms. But it really causes minerals and nutrients to not be absorbed by the body, thus creating a deficiency. Many people who have thyroid problems, have this disease. My mother has thyroid problems.

Of course, the gluten protein is found in bread, oats, and pasta to name a few. In order to get around this problem, we are trying a diet of gluten free products on my mother, to see if it will make a difference. The only thing she found that tasted funny from all the gluten free products we bought, was the bread. The bread tasted, a little fruity, and dense. But the rest of the gluten free stuff, tasted fine.

An association may exist between Celiac and inflammation in the joints. Scientists have found an increase in inflammation when people ate wheat and gluten. But, the scientists may have not come to a strong conclusion on the link. Future studies will finally iron it all out.

You can go to to check on this disease.  Have a good day,  till next time.

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
