What a remarkable journey it's been with lot's of challenges along the way. I'm so thankful to be alive.

My life mission and purpose is in helping others to improve their health so they are better equipped to serve others and their families!

Hey yal'L just realized I'm down over 12 lbs since using these products in my AM smoothie and not even exercising yet.  I rarely get on a scale but was curious.  Wasn't really trying to lose weight or using the products for weight loss. Was just interested in the health benefits and looking for a clean quality protein for my smoothie in the morning.  Just got into a dress that I've not been able to zip up in four years! It just slipped right on!

In my 20 plus years in this industry or my business I've never been into or interested in promoting dieting or diet products.  These products are not in that category.  This is just a side effect of good nutrition because it's real fuel for the body!  When our bodies get the balanced nutrition it needs it thrives.  I was only using one scoop too!  I am trying it with 2 scoops today just to test it out.   

I use some almond milk, water, banana, berries, greens, pumpkinseed protein, Natures Nitric Oxide, C60, pumpkin oil and some Liquid Zinc.  Have noticed I'm not as hungry and not craving any junk stuff or sweets.  This is actually saving us on our food bill!  And it's so hot now here in Texas that not much is thriving in our garden except the hot peppers which I do eat a lot of!  

So there ya have it!  Seeing is believing!

*I was very pleased to find out while listening to Dr. Tom O'Bryan's lecture last night that this is the new text book now being used in Medical Schools and there's a section on Celiac and Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity.  We're getting there!  The crusade goes on as we continue to share this life saving message with courage, enthusiasm and a whole lot of passion!  Sue Seward - Founder Gluten Free Lady  (July 2014)

What is Celiac Disease?

Celiac disease (also known as Coeliac, Celiac Sprue, Non-tropical Sprue, or simply CD) is a genetic, autoimmune disorder. In people with CD, eating gluten (a type of protein found in wheat, barley, and rye) starts a reaction in the gut that causes damage to the small intestine. This damage causes the small intestine to lose its ability to absorb nutrients found in food, leading to malnutrition and a variety of other complications.

CD symptoms vary from person to person and from age to age. Some people with CD are "asymptomatic" (no symptoms at all) ? except for the damage to their intestine, unbeknownst to them. If no action is taken to repair this damage, it can lead to serious medical problems, such as intestinal cancer. (That is why proper diagnosis is so important.) Fortunately, most of this intestinal damage and other symptoms will improve by adhering to a strict gluten-free diet.

The symptoms of Celiac Disease can include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Migraines
  • Weight loss⁄gain
  • Constipation
  • Headache
  • Malnutrition
  • Fatigue
  • Abdominal cramping

There are also a number of other symptoms. Because the body does not receive all the nutrition it needs in people with CD, symptoms can vary greatly from individual to individual, often leading to misdiagnosis.

Please consult your physician if you have some or all of these symptoms, or if you have a family member with these symptoms. Celiac disease is believed to affect 1 in 133 people. Because it is a genetic (i.e. hereditary) disease, your chances of having Celiac disease greatly increase if you have an immediate relative with the disease. If someone in your family has been diagnosed with CD, we strongly recommend getting tested yourself.

What is Gluten Intolerance?

Gluten Intolerance or Gluten Sensitivity presents with many of the same symptoms as celiac disease. People with Gluten Intolerance are unable to tolerate gluten and have an adverse reaction when they consume gluten. If you have Gluten Intolerance, just like with Celiac Disease, your health will improve when you follow a strict gluten-free diet.

Gluten Intolerance has not been well researched but, there is significant clinical evidence to support the condition. Because of the lack of research, there are no medical tests for the condition. Diagnosis is done through an elimination diet.

You can learn more about Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance at our race. We will have printed information and you can talk with people who live with these conditions. You may also find these sites useful:

Gluten Sensitivity Testing

The highly anticipated gluten sensitivity and related tests are now AVAILABLE.

 *New Gluten Sensitivity and Related Testing from Cyrex Labs is now available

Over the last few years, we have seen the correlation of Gluten Sensitivity as a common initiator of multiple pathologies.  From Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder to Hepatocellular Carcinoma, from Migraines to Recurrent Pancreatitis, from Cardiomyopathy to numerous autoimmune diseases, we have seen the association of sensitivity to this protein of wheat, rye and barley with the initial manifestation of multiple pathophysiologies. 

But there's been a Conundrum. What is it?  Problems associated with standard tests for Gluten Sensitivity. 

The only blood tests (until now) for Celiac Disease have been extremely accurate and dependable if a person has Total Villous Atrophy (TVA).  However, when biopsy test results with anything less than TVA, the accuracy of the test drops tremendously (to as low as being wrong 7 out of 10 times).  Would you tolerate that accuracy rate for a cancer, heart disease, or even pregnancy test? Gluten has to have significantly destroyed the gut wall for current blood testing to be effective.  For the majority of people that isn't the case...especially if the brain, heart, liver, or some other part of the body is the main target of attack.  Read more at -

Cases of celiac disease up dramatically: report | Health | Reuters

So often we hear of a condition discussed in the news ~ current events ~ of some condition that seems to be afflicting more and more people.  And they wonder why? 


We, at would like to begin this year with a response to what we hear in the news and share some information that may assist in raising your awareness.  So, Today's Topic is Acid Reflux - GERDS...Why is it all of a sudden so prevalent in our population?  Here is current research on the topic.  Just look how current - look at the dates - and then consider this....

  Celiac patients have a high prevalence of reflux esophagitis (19%). That a gluten free diet significantly decreased the relapse rate of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) symptoms suggests that coeliac disease may represent a risk factor for development of reflux oesophagitis. 

Gut 2003;52:514-517

39% of children with CD had esophagitis (30% of boys and 46% of girls with CD).

ISRN Gastroenterology Volume 2011, Article ID 489065

The incidence of Eosinophilic Esophagitis in Celiac patients is increased

compared with the general population. 

J Clin Gastroenterol. 2012 Jan;46(1):e6-e11

Gastroesophogeal Reflux Disease (GERD) symptoms are common in classically symptomatic untreated CD patients. The GFD is associated with a rapid and persistent improvement in reflux symptoms that resembles the healthy population.
Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol. 2011 Mar;9(3):214-9
