Who else is gluten “intolerant”? (and 1 step toward finding out)

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 and I’d just see. 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 chubby. 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:

  1. Constipation or diarrhea
  2. Dizziness and/or brain fog
  3. Fatigue
  4. Cravings
  5. Bloating and gas

5 advanced signs of gluten intolerance:

  1. Joint pain
  2. Fibromyalgia
  3. Depression/anxiety
  4. Migraines
  5. ADD

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
