WIPit good: you have a fabulous handle on auto immune, you're an inspiration & I embrace & applaud your courage I have followed this dialog only today, but I share the ideas related to diet -- I am gluten free & writing a gluten free 'bible' for all of us auto immuners, what I wanted to share today is that another answer to my RA has been turning up the exercise plan, I play tennis -- everyday; I walk; I swim; I bike, not just around the block --- around the world. diet & exercise have kept me afloat --
jerrymu: thank you so very much for your candor & for reaching out -- you offer many helpful ideas. a question: I know about flour & sugar, but have you any experience with gluten-free flour -- I've been buying & freezing Glutino, is sprouted bread ok? I am getting ready to make glutin-free bread with a machine & then freeze it, what's the best sweetener? agave -- is that ok? I do know that online you can get gluten free bread mixes -- but they all have xathium (I think that's it) that's not so good, would you know of a gluten free bread mix that's ok.
I must say, navigating this gluten free stuff is mind-boggling, I just found out that red wine has gluten added! alas thank you -- where do you get raw milk? are eggs considered diary?
