I figured out I was Gluten Intolerant by keeping a Food Diary.

Write down everything you eat and if you notice any reaction. Such as super full sensation, swelling. Also make note of how you feel during the day. Feel happy, depressed, legs hurt, hard to walk, foggy thinking, etc...

This helps you to figure out sensitivities to other foods as well. You can also make note of where you are, inside (cloudy day, storm blowing in), beautiful day outside, in office all day coworker burning candle/strong perfume, etc...sometime people have bad reactions to smells, mold, weather, etc...

You will see patterns emerge. Certain foods, situations, stresses, people, etc... will cause your body to react negatively. Once you notice something try to remove it and take note whether or not you begin to feel better.

You will be surprised what can be revealed often things you've never paid any attention to.

Two of my main symptoms are depression and anxiety. I get bad brain fog and anxiety when I get glutened these days. It is definitely worth a try.

In going gluten free consider eating foods thatare naturally gluten free like lean proteins and vegetables rather than just substituting gluteny items with their gf counterparts. Processed food is processed food.

In my experience the more I eat food the closest to the way it comes from the earth the better I feel.

Try It for a month to see how you feel.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

It is definitely worth trying a gf diet. I have to go dairy free also to relieve all symptoms but it is good to start eliminating one thing at a time so you can tell what is causing each symptom. Check out some of the gf recipes from this team.

If you have a lot of symptoms, it's definitely worth trying a gluten free diet for a while and see if you are feeling any better!

There is so much great information out there and I'm sure you will get some suggestions from the group...

Here is one place you could start: www.livingwithout.com/

It's a magazine called Living Without. It has all kinds of info for people with various food allergies and seems to really focus on gluten free and dairy free info.

I think you can access the entire site without a subscription, but they might ask you to register.

I have depression, and anxiety problems. One of my friends suggested that I look up gluten intolerance to see if that might be a cause of the chemical imbalance. I did some research and it seems I have a lot of the symptoms of Gluten Sensitivity.

The only way I have access right now to see if that's my problem is to try the diet and see if it makes a differance.

Anyone have any tips or suggestions for me?
