This is a great explanation of how gluten can affect the body and how to do an elimination diet. Knowing how your body reacts to different foods can be very empowering, especially when it helps you regain your good health. Elimination diets have helped me discover other foods that I need to avoid in addition to just gluten. By keeping my diet clean I feel more in control of my health, comfort and well being. Of course, do not do anything like this without consulting your doctor first.
I have no plans on eating gluten in Europe however… it has taken far too long for my body to heal from all of the damage to risk eating it just to see what happens. Why would he suggest that? Why?!
