Vaccine could halt autoimmune diseases

So there is a lot of this being posted all over the place.  If you could take a vaccine to stop your autoimmune disease would you? This article talks about Rheumatoid Arthritis and Chrohn’s Disease, you can read it here at this link

There is also talk about there being a vaccine developed for Celiac Disease, in my life time. Would I take it? I’m not sure. Some say vaccines are the cause of the issues. There isn’t enough information for me to say whether I would or wouldn’t, what are the potential side effects and so on. For right now I am feeling good. I am eating healthy or healthier, more fruits, veggies, lean meats and fish. So I’m good for now.

Just thought I would share this information with you.

Email from a customer

Ellen wrote about our company on her blog after she purchased our laundry detergent back in August, she found our website through our other site (this site takes you to No Gluten Natural Girl) she has been a loyal customer ever since. You can read what she wrote about Oxy Prime by following this link, you have to scroll down to Natural Clothes Detergent.

We received this email today from her 12/19/2011


I hope you also have a wonderful Christmas, I want to thank you for having such great products for people with allergy sensitivities to skin care

I have let every one that I know about your website and how great your products are..  I have called my doctor and my son’s doctor and let them know to tell their patients to go to your website.

It is funny with your laundry detergent my son likes as he puts it the chemical laundry detergent.  He just does not get it yet that the regular products that you get at most stores are not good for you.  He is 22 and thinks he knows it all.

Getting back to my point he usually does his own laundry but the one day he called me from the road and said Mom I forgot to wash my uniform for work, can you take care of it for me?.  I told him a little fib and said well all we have is my as he calls it my nasty natural stuff that does not do anything. He said well just use it.  I did and he came home put on his uniform and said thank you  and went off to work. He came home that night and said I thought you said you only had your stuff left. It did not have much scent to it but my clothes felt much better what did you use.  I told him my nasty all natural stuff. He said Oh no you did not, it can’t be.  I said it is, he said back you  know it did clean better and my clothes were softer. I thought you would like to hear that .

I can’t use the store ought products I break out from them He does not have that problem but I just love your products.  In a way I am glad that I do have the sensitivities that I do have or I would never would have found out your products.

As they say it was a blessing in disguise.



No Gluten Natural Girl Products

So my business partner and I have this great little company and we are trying to expand it. We carry Gluten Free makeup (our own line), gluten-free products like lotions, body wash, hygiene products, shampoos and conditioners, baby care, household products in addition to Gluten free snacks for those with Celiac Disease, sensitive skin or those looking for natural products. We have a gluten-free product for everyone in the family.

We have the lowest prices out there and people wonder why is that. Well I am going to tell you why. It is because we don’t think you should have to pay and arm and a leg because its gluten-free. Both myself and my business partner know what its like to live on a budget, remember we both work in special education . My partner is a teacher and I am a substitute teacher and her assistant. Up until 5 years ago I was a divorced mom with a son at home. It was important to us that people be able to afford the items they need, I needed to be able to afford the items that I need and that is why we keep the cost as low as we can. Our products are of great quality we just choose not to charge ridiculous prices. I just felt I need to state this because I see and check prices all the time and I just think its insane what some people charge for items because they are gluten-free. Check us out, give us a chance.

Love when this happens

I received a phone call from a customer who recently purchased a new product we are offering called GoPicnic. They are like a lunchable for adults and kids that are gluten-free. You can read about them in my product reviews. So this women bought the Sunbutter + Crackers one for her son to take on a field trip. He has several allergies and health issues so he has to be careful what he eats.

As his class sat to eat their lunch many pulled out lunchables, when he took out his all the kids at the table asked him what it was. He told them “You know I cant eat certain things but my mom found these and now I have my own lunchable like you”. The kids were very interested in it and he said it was really cool.

Ok, so how cool is that? I’m thinking pretty darn cool. All kids want is to feel part of a group and when you have issues whether it is food allergies or learning issues, what ever, kids just want to be kids.

This made my day along with the mom and her son. Love when this happens.

Today is Celiac Awareness Day

Here are some stats courtesy of University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center Fact Sheets.

Celiac is most common genetic autoimmune disease in the world? Really and the fact that it took me getting so sick that I was finally diagnosed is sad according to the stats.  Celiac compared to some other diseases: at least 3 million have celiac, 3M have Type 1 diabetes, 2.7M have epilepsy, 2.1M have rheumatoid arthritis, 1.5M have lupus, .5M have Crohn’s, 1M have Parkinson’s, 400K have MS. Those with celiac would fill up 4,400 Boeing 747s or 936 cruise ships. Celiac is very common, but not commonly diagnosed. Don’t you think this is sad because I certainly think it is.

Just in case you don’t know. The disease affects the digestive process of the small intestine and is triggered by the consumption of gluten–a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.  Celiac Disease causes an abnormal response to gluten ingestion: the immune system attacks the small intestine, inhibiting the absorption of important nutrients, destroying the intestinal villi and wreaking havoc on the bodies systems.

I have heard from many people who have been told by their insurance that they will not cover them now that they were diagnosed and I also have heard from people that they have been told “No” on  life insurance because of being diagnosed. Now I have never had an issue with insurance or life insurance so I feel very lucky. Then I started thinking  isn’t that what you pay all your premiums for? Anyway that is a whole other subject that I wont get into now.

The University of Chicago has wonderful information on their website. And here is a link to the e-book they offer.
