Beyond the Bandaid: Invisibly Ill Documentary

January 22nd, 2013

Beyond the Bandaid GraphicIf you suffer from a chronic invisible illness you may be interested in a new documentary. Here is the synopsis from the director’s website:

Written, directed and produced by Bec Mills founder of Beyond the Bandaid Invisibly Ill is a documentary series designed to help educate and raise awareness on the important role that stealth pathogens and other environmental factors play in chronic fatiguing, neurodegenerative and neurobehavioural disease.

Discover, explore and understand stealth pathogen. Invisibly Ill helps you understand the concept of a stealth pathogen, the damage they cause, signs and symptoms and what can be done about them to help get you back in the drivers seat. Interviews with international guest speakers such Californian Microbiologist Professor Garth Nicolson and New Jersey Psychiatrist Dr Robert Bransfield get you started with understanding how imbalances between the nervous and immune system contribute to symptoms such as pain and cognitive impairment. Learn about how oxidative damage plays a part in mitochondrial dysfunction, how often many illnesses can easily be misdiagnosed. Invisibly Ill also follows the lives of various Australian patients suffering from a wide range of illnesses such as; Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Chronic Fatigue, Autism, Morgellons, Lyme Disease and various others- as they begin treatment for their conditions. Learn about the Chlamydia, Borrelia, Mycoplasma, Babesia and Bartonella species and the vital role they play in chronic pain and illness. Treatment for these infections is more then a bandaid. Go beyond the bandaid and get better.

Download the full documentary from the Beyond the Bandaid store for a cost of $18.

The website also has many great resources and articles about chronic illness. Read More Here

2012 Gluten Free Easter Candy

March 8th, 2012

Chocolate Covered Peeps Spring is just around the corner and that means it is almost time to fill those Easter baskets with yummy gluten-free treats! A few of my favorites are the chocolate covered Peeps, Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs, and of course you cannot forget the Cadbury creme filled eggs. With so many manufacturers getting on the gluten-free band wagon, there is more to chose from this year than ever. Search the candy database at myglutenfacts.com or see an alphabetical listing here.

I want to urge you to be extra cautious this year as many companies are trying to make an extra buck labeling their products as gluten-free, but maybe they are not really certified. Please read the product labels. There has already been one recall issued for a Peter Rabbit Deluxe Easter Mix that was made by Jelly Belly. The mix contained malted milk balls. Any chocolate that has malt flavoring would not be gluten free as that flavor comes from barley. Have a Happy Easter everyone!

Udi's Classic Hamburger Buns

I have yet to see the Udi’s Gluten-Free Hamburger buns show up in my local Krogers, however I have found some online grocers selling them. I’m itching to get my hands on the new buns, so it is tempting to place an order and have them shipped to my house. When following Udi’s on Twitter or Facebook, I thought that I had read that they should be in local stores by May, just in time for BBQ season.
