Everyone has a story. Here’s mine…
I enrolled in a health counseling program a very sick girl, symptoms included chronic joint and muscle pain, debilitating fatigue, dry eyes, digestive distress to the point that the pain would radiate down the front of of my legs to mid thigh and double me over. During the fourth weekend of class, one of the speakers addressed food allergies, one of which was gluten. The symptoms matched what I was going through, so I eliminated gluten and watched with absolute joy as one by one, all of my symptoms went away. It’s been a couple years, and I haven’t looked back. From my research, at the very least I am gluten intolerant, as I react to barley and rye (makes me soooo sleepy and achy for a couple days afterward).
Welcome to my gluten free bubble, hope you enjoy your stay!
