HEALTH AND WELLBEING
Allergies and Holistic Healing by Skye Weintraub N.D. I really like this book. I had so many allergies that this book was a great resource book for me. Each time I read it I learn more. It always answers so many questions. It sometimes leads me to ponder for more answers. One of the questions was "Why do I have so many food allergies?" Finally, after enough pondering about this unanswered questions, I decided to seek my answer from the source. The book explains types of allergies, testing, good digestion, common allergy causing foods, environment allergies, and additional treatment for allergies and sensitivities. It talks about behavior problems, hyperactivity, ADD, and brain allergies. Also has a section about Gluten.
Natural Treatments for ADD and Hyperactivity by Dr. Skye Weintraub, N.D. One of my daughters has behavior problems that I was able to connect to food reactions when she was younger. I researched this topic well, because she could have easily been diagnosed with ADHD or autism. I did everything I could to eliminate anything that caused a reaction. We changed her diet several times and now 7 years later, she goes gluten free and most of her ADD symptom are gone. This book is loaded with so much information. I learned a lot. This book explains what ADD is, how self esteem is important, diet, elimination and challenge diet, food allergies, biochemical factors, hypoglycemia, sugar, yeast, environmental factors, heavy metal contamination, pesticide poisoning. thyroid, malabsorbtion deficiencies and natural remedies.

Wheat-Free Recipes & Menus by Carol Fenster (this book was donated by Carol Fenster) This was my first gluten free cook book that actually had recipes that didn't flop on me. I depended on this cookbook for the first 6 months that I went gluten free. We survived Christmas and made our own gluten free Christmas basket. The girls and I didn't miss a thing.

Other Information about Authors
Jeanne Basye is the author of Gluten Free-Cookies.
She started baking gluten free cookies for her gluten free family and soon became known in her neighborhood as “The Gluten Free Cookie Lady.”
I use to think that gluten free cookies were going to be flat or hard no matter how I tried. And then the Gluten Free Cookies cookbook arrived in the mail. I was surprised about all of the tips and information about baking was in that book. I pulled out my flours and mixed up a batch of “The Gluten Free Cookie Lady Flour Blend.” Now, let the cookie baking begin. I decided to start with good old Chocolate Chip Cookies. I could compare that one from memory. I followed all of her tips about pre-heating, cold dough, and found out my oven was not the correct temperature as I selected. When the timer went off, I pulled out of the oven PUFFY COOKIES, not flat! After they cooled they were still puffy! I took a bite and they were soft. I left them set out on the counter, hidden in my mixing bowl, because I wanted to know if they would be hard the next day. Each day, I ate the test cookies and they were soft four days later exposed to air. I was impressed. They also tasted great. My husband, who is not gluten free, loved them as well.
I also made the Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and they were tasty as well. I am excited about trying more of her cookie recipes that are in the book. She has lots of recipes in her book. You will find all time favorites, bars and brownies, chocolate lover cookies, fruity and spicy cookies, nutty cookies, no bake cookies, and cookies with nuts in them. She also has a section about nuts (and recipes), flavoring and scenting sugar, fillings, and frosting and glazes. With a bonus, you also will find recipes for making waffles, granola and ice cream. And also lots of tips.
I was so impressed, that I had to test her “Gluten Free Cookie Lady Flour Blend” with muffins. Muffins have always been an area of frustration for me. This time I pulled out my first gluten free muffins that were baked completely through. No doughy centers. They were so good, the kids finished them off as quickly as they were cooling. I had to make up another batch of her flour blend so that I could make more muffins. I have decided to use the “Gluten Free Cookie Lady Flour Blend” for my all purpose flour.
Many thanks to the lady who was generous to donate a copy to our viewing library.

I am thrilled to announce a new book for kids called "
Bagels, Buddy, and Me" by Melanie Krumrey. This is a story about gluten intolerance and Celiac Disease. It is told from the perspective of her middle son who was diagnosed at 6 years old. The story is about how he found out that he couldn't eat his favorite food anymore and how he has to change his diet.
About the author, Melanie Krumrey. This is taken from her website atwww.bagelsbuddyandme.com
We are the Krumrey family. ("Krum" like cookie
bread - a name full of gluten!) In 2003, our son Cooper's health began to concern us. He struggled with headaches, stomach aches, tics, and an overall sick feeling. After a year of symptoms that seemed to worsen by the week, we were told about Celiac Disease. Cooper's blood tests were inconclusive because of an IgA deficiency, but some antibody levels were elevated. His endoscopy was normal, which was also confusing. Others we met and read about had normal endoscopy results, but positive blood work and family histories. So, we decided to try the diet. After only two weeks, Cooper showed a marked improvement. His revitalized health was enough to convince us that a gluten intolerance was causing his declining health. He has been gluten free ever since. (And mostly headache, stomachache, and tic free too!)
In doing research on behalf of Cooper, I (Melanie) realized that I had been expeiencing most of the symptoms I was reading about for years, but had always thought these things were "normal for me." I was tested through Dr. Kenneth Fine's lab in Dallas,TX, Enterolab. I was referred to him by the daughter of a friend in Texas who had heard him speak at a local support group. The results were positive. Later, my other son and daughter were also tested through Enterolab. They were positive as well. Most recently, my sister used Dr. Fine's lab to test for a gluten intolerance as well as for genetic indicators. She was positive for all. We are very thankful for better health, and give God thanks for leading us to answers
While in the process of diagnosis, and learning to eat differently, I wished out loud that there was a children's book on the subject. Someone suggested that I write one, and I laughed at the thought. Months later, a story came to mind after we learned of Buddy's inability to eat wheat as well. I wrote it, and put it down, thinking it too impossible. The Lord seemed to be nudging me though, so I picked it up again, and entered the world of publishing -another journey in itself!
If you would like to order the book you may do so at Melanie's website at www.bagelsbuddyandme.com
