To get the full story, we have to start 10 years ago when I knew things with me weren't right. I suffered from distress and agony on a daily basis. I was bloated, tired, and anxious all the time. I had terrible, painful acne. I basically wanted to rip myself out of my body. It seemed like nothing I could do made me better... and for that, I didn't want to live. Many doctors I saw would only treat the symptoms such as, you're depressed or bipolar. They wanted me to be treated with anti-depressants and have tons of therapy and thought that would break me free from what I was experiencing. Then I sought out doctor after doctor to see if they could treat my stomach. At the early age of 22, I already had multiple colonoscopies, MRI's, scopes, scans, blood tests, and even brain tests. I wanted to give up. In fact, I tried to give up... twice. I could never quite go through with the whole thing but I knew I couldn't live like this anymore. You know that saying, "the right place at the right time," yea... I totally believe that is true. I was introduced to a Naturopathic Doctor who upon one minute of walking to her office said five simple words that changed my entire life. "You are allergic to gluten." Gluten? At that time most people didn't know what that was or how it had an effect on the brain and the body. I had no idea what it meant or what was to come, but an incredible calm came over me. Over the next couple months, I worked with her to eliminate gluten from my life and what happened was revolutionary.
