I just watched:  Gluten Free Q & A with Dr. Tom O'Bryan.  It's about 42 mins. and very informative!  My only disagreement with him was when he said that if a product says Gluten Free, such as oats, then it is!  I know I got glutenned from Cheerios!  He describes growing the oats with likely contamination from other fields, loading it in trucks that previously transported wheat, processing it on equipment that processed wheat before, etc.  He mentioned sky high levels of gluten in oats! 

He also mentioned a new test that tests more of the protein peptides of gluten.  This one "wheat Zoomer" is very accurate and tests 26-30 of the peptides.  He says most doctors do not know about the new test.  7 or 8 of 10 people are testing positive, because it is more extensive testing.  He reccomends EVERYONE get tested once a year to make sure they can really tolerate gluten before a terrible illness manifests!  You can read about it at

I know several women that have dry eyes.  I have had severe problems such as waking up at night with stabbing pain, tears running down my face.  I thank God for hearing my prayers for desperate help!  Dr. Oz had a dermatologist on his show telling that using an oil (they had several)  would help eye lashes grow back!  I want thicker, longer lashes because mine are nearly non existent!  I tried this using the coconut oil I already  had and noticed pretty quick that my eyes felt better!  Coconut oil is an antifungal.  I had Lasik surgery in 2000.  I believe they washed my eyes with antibiotics and probably the drops I took after this had them also.  Most people know that we need probiotics for our gut due to all the meds. we have been given.  What about our eyes?  I read that celiac pops out after too many antibiotics.  Some people have the gene but never develop full blown celiac disease.  A great side effect:  the puffy bags under my eyes are shrinking and skin around my nose-to-mouth got dry and peeled and the skin is so much better!  Like new born skin-- the deep crevice is shallower!  I had begun to use the coconut oil on my face.  After a few days the skin got better!  This will save us $50 a month.  Hope this helps someone, tell others!

We have decided to make changes to the structure of our group.  Many people cannot come out to meetings so we are not going to schedule regular meetings.  We will still have this blog, and our yahoo account for email:  You can use this site to tell others about new foods, restaurants, traveling with gluten intolerance or celiac, etc.  We want to share information that we normally would share at our meetings.  This might also include new medicines, tests, medical information.  When you hit "send" one of our leadership group will read it before posting.  Hopefully, we will avoid having something posted that is inappropriate.

We will continue to meet for dinner (celiacs eating out-- CEOs) at various locations in our area.  Please make sure the restaurant is still open before you come.  Many local restaurants have gone out of business.  If someone calls and lets us know that a restaurant has closed we will choose a new one for that date.  Gayle-788-2531, Bev 776-9369, Susan 779-5687.  Please leave a message because many of us do not answer unknown callers.
