Approximately 1% of the American population has celiac disease and an estimated 18 million have non-celiac gluten sensitivity. That means 6 times more people are gluten intolerant and the majority are never diagnosed.
The last time I ate gluten was for “experimental” reasons. I thought if I ate “gluten free“ (best article on gluten intolerance), I might not have a problem. Gluten free led to gluten then sugary gluten which unfortunately led me to yet another round with sugar. Once I began eating gluten, I was instantly tired, dizzy, depressed, constipated, scattered and inflamed. That was all the evidence I needed to convince me of a suspected gluten intolerance despite my blood work results of no celiac disease. I now eat satiating, balanced, nourishing meals free of ALL flour and you can too!
5 early signs of gluten intolerance:
- Constipation or diarrhea
- Dizziness and/or brain fog
- Bloating and gas
5 advanced signs of gluten intolerance:
- Joint pain
Step One: Don’t eat any gluten (wheat, barley, rye OR gluten free products) for one week and notice how you feel (you just might feel fantastic!) Schedule a 30 min complimentary consultation with me to share your findings and begin a flour-free life!
How you feel matters to me. Sincerely, Karen
