Gluten Free And You
It may seem like a fad diet, and to some it could be. Media even tends to swing in the direction that if you’re gluten free you are over spending on needless things and its not even healthy! Such a lie. There is a giant list of issues that gluten can cause people and it doesn’t always have to be in the gut. Like for myself, when I eat wheat (especially too much of it) I feel bloated, internally congested, heavy, and worst of all- I start acting like I’m in a ragweed field. Sinus pressure, running/itchy nose, scratchy throat. For years, I always thought I was having a reaction to allergies like pollen, dust, etc. While I am still allergic to those things, they’ve greatly reduced since being off wheat and gluten! I came through this autumn with 1 week of slight itchiness. That is huge to me! The previous autumn I wanted to rip my face off! Now, I do see an acupuncturist that does NAET and a chiropractor. Both of these can and do help with allergies and sensitivities.
Getting off topic. This blog and page will be filled with articles and recipes about gluten and gf cooking. Its a big part of my families life and its not hard to incorporate into your life.
Don’t think you’re gluten intolerant? Think wheat doesn’t both you? Do your research or contact me about gluten in foods, go off all gluten for 2-3-weeks and see what happens. If you feel no changes anywhere -waist size, body aches, sinuses, etc- then good for you. Chances are you’ll notice a change somewhere. Try it!
