GLUTEN-FREE support:

After years of allergic, anaphylactic, endometriosis, gastrointestinal, neurological, and more lovely health/autoimmune challenges, I was sent in for an upper endoscopy biopsy (celiac test), plus colonoscopy.  Funny, I didn't believe it necessary, as five years earlier I'd already cut gluten from my diet.  Or so I thought.  But the gastroenterologist said I had celiac disease (along with lymphocytic colitis), I was somehow still getting gluten into my body, I needed to figure out where it was coming from, and it needed to stop. Health struggles are real, and here are a few resources that help us on this gluten-free trek:


 

TIP:

Most health food stores and veg restaurants have gluten-free options.  But if it's not listed, be sure to ask. Unmarked options are often available for celiacs!

 
 

TIP:

If one has cut gluten from their diet, but their partner has not, and they’re still having reactions, it might be from kissing. That’s what happened to us. As soon as he went GF, all was well.
