Why Gluten Free you ask?
Honestly I could go on about this topic for days. This is my explanation of why I choose to live a gluten free life style. I am going to try to keep a long story short for you.
When I was in my teens I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, which is basically ulcers in the colon. OK, you don’t have to google that now. Then at the age of 16 I was told by my medical doctor I would never be able to have children. At the time I didn’t really question it, really who at 16 wants kids.
I continued to take my steroids and other medicine for my colitis and excluded nuts and seeds from my diet. I never really felt better and continued to struggle with my intestines and colon bleeding from time to time. I had maxed out my steroids and could not take anymore for the pain. I basically learned to live with it. In the Winter of 2007 I had emergency surgery for appendicitis. The surgeon sent my appendix for a biopsies because he did not know what was growing all over them. Turns out I had endometriosis on several of my organs. I began to research endometriosis disease and what I found opened my eyes. In the 2009 I went to my primary OB/GYN and requested a Lap. He denied it and told me to take more pregnancy pills. This was not helping I had been on the pill since the age of 14, with no relief. I was upset and crying when I left his office. My husband was not happy with the doctor and his interaction. I called the OB/GYN’s office back and demanded an appointment with the head of the office. Dr. T was honest and I still appreciate his integrity. He told me that they did not have anyone in the practice who was familiar with endometriosis and told me to find a specialist. I found Dr. Rana, I love this doctor. Dr. Rana is one of a few specialist in the US who specializes in endometriosis and infertility. Dr. Rana operated in the Spring of 2010, I was the second worse case he had seen in 30 years of practice. During my surgery he called in 2 other doctors to help. My intestines were attached to my organs and my diaphragm. They basically dissected my body. Dr. Rana ran several blood test; low and behold I have a gluten intolerance.
The discovered gluten intolerance along with my research where I found wheat and process sugar feed the endometriosis cells in my body – led me to choose a gluten free life style.
Since going gluten free I have lost 60 pounds, am pain free, no longer feel tired, take no medicine for colitis, and became a Mommy to two little girls.
If you too are curious about going gluten free, I encourage you to try it. I took me about 3 weeks to notice a difference and about 3 months for a complete turn around in my life.
I choose to be gluten and dairy free.
