So I just wanted to mention something of great importance. Ever since I was a child I had issues with food. For years each time I ate something I'd go through terrible abdominal pain for a while each time. I went to numerous doctors and they all said the same thing.... "everything looks normal... sorry we can't help you". So years went by and slowly my body adjusted to this and eventually after years of dealing with this, my body stopped reacting so violently.
So here we are now, I'm 36 and I have just come to the conclusion that I'm probably gluten intolerant! All this time I didn't have any clue as to what the problem has been until now. Since last year I had suspected that it was gluten, but wasn't 100% sure. So I started to take away certain kinds of foods out of my diet such as pork, inorganic meats, milk products (minus yogurt), stopped eating most fast foods and started to eat a much more clean and healthy diet. I don't drink soda, and hardly ever drink alcohol. I'm trying to drink much more water then I used to because without the right amount of water, energetically speaking, your body won't function properly. We all have an electro magnetic body and water helps it to work right, just as a car battery works best when there is water in the battery chamber. Not to mention your body detoxes each and every time you go to the bathroom, so the more you drink water, the more you go to the bathroom and the less toxic and healthier you are. :)
Gluten in latin means is glue. It literally gums up your intestines. Gluten is one of the most complex proteins consumed by man – making it extremely difficult to absorb. Everyone, and especially people with gluten intolerance or Celiac Disease, are unable to digest gluten – a protein found in wheat, rye, barley and oats. In fact, in Celiac this protein actually attacks the lining of the small intestine causing damage that flattens the tiny villi. When this happens the body is unable to absorb nutrients into the body. Like myself, I've dealt with fighting to keep weight on me. Which makes sense because I'm not absorbing as many nutrients as I need. It can also have the opposite affect and you can gain weight, yet still be lacking nutrients.
Signs to watch out for in the body:
Undiagnosed for long periods of time, food intolerances have been found to contribute to diabetes, bowel cancer, anemia and osteoporosis.
I have just recently quit consuming gluten, maybe about 6 days now and I already feel better, and more alert, less bloating and in general I feel more stable emotionally. I would highly recommend people to at least investigate. I did, and I'm so happy about it that I wanted to share it with the rest of you. :) Oh and one more thing... I also realized that if food can alter and change how you feel, then we better pay attention to what and how we eat. If you're trying everything in the world to raise your frequency/vibration and you always seem to get sucked back down, perhaps this is the answer to your so ever elusive problem.
Oh... one more thing I forgot to mention. The main thing that got my attention in this matter was my thinning hair. I know from researching hair loss that nutrition plays a huge part in the condition of your hair. Most people that are gluten sensitive experience hair loss, alopecia or thinning hair, in both men, women and sometimes children as well. I also link gluten to peoples skin, especially in the face. You guys ever notice that as some people age, their face starts looking puffy and wider? Well I think it's things like gluten and perhaps alcohol or other harsh things we put in our bodies, that creates some kind of inflammation just beneath the skin. The great thing is that when you change your diet and stop consuming these harmful things the body can return to its normal way of being. Not to mention that most people that stopped eating gluten have reported their face and hair return to normal within 6 to 12 months! How awesome is that? Peace! Love you all!
