Gluten Free Living


Although the lab work from the end of last year came back negative, my doctor was just as convinced as I was that the pattern of symptoms was very clear: I likely suffer from some degree of intolerance to gluten.

The only way to find out, really, is to go gluten free and see how you feel – after 4-6 weeks’ worth of vigilance. You have to allow time for all the gluten to be fully purged from your system, then additional time for your gut to heal from the stress and damage.

I began my gluten free diet semi-coincidentally at the beginning of Lent. We don’t observe Lent, but since that was when I was ready to begin anyhow, it seemed a nice symbolic and easy-to-remember date.

Since I was planning to share my reviews of gluten free products and recipes anyway, I decided to put them “out there” in the world a little more. I am now the Biloxi Gluten Free Examiner at Examiner.com. If you click through you can see a page listing everything I’ve published there, as well as subscribing to my feed if that interests you.

In two weeks I’ve learned a lot… In some ways it’s even harder than I thought, but in some ways it has been easier. I’ll keep updating you on my journey – but don’t worry, the focus of the blog isn’t changing. (That’s part of the reason I started posting that content over at Examiner.com).
