I have been meeting more and more people who can’t eat Gluten, and of course others who simply avoid it for nutritional reasons.
Are you a victim of this disease? Sadly, some are not even aware that they are gluten sensitive and keep suffering from many staggering reactions when they eat gluten. Another sad fact is when someone finds out they have a gluten sensitivity and have to change their whole way of eating, really, it is their whole way of living for many, since food is happiness. It is to me…. But hey, like anything, we get used to it and we learn to enjoy our new us.
It is really not such a big deal after you get used to it, I hear it from those who suffer from it, the beginning is the hardest, but then, it becomes a lifestyle.
So, if you suffer from effects you cannot explain and doctors are still unaware of, well look into this condition and let yourself find out if maybe you just found the answer to your suffering.

Here is another bit:
Watch a video of Kellawanda who explains what gluten did to her body:
What is Celiac Disease?
Celiac disease is an autoimmune digestive disease that damages the villi of the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. What does this mean? Essentially the body is attacking itself every time a person with celiac consumes gluten.
Celiac disease is triggered by consumption of the protein called gluten, which is found in wheat, barley and rye. When people with celiac disease eat foods containing gluten, their immune system responds by damaging the finger-like villi of the small intestine. When the villi become damaged, the body is unable to absorb nutrients into the bloodstream, which can lead to malnourishment.
Left untreated, people with celiac disease can develop further complications such as other autoimmune diseases, osteoporosis, thyroid disease, and cancer.
