Welcome to the team!!


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.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

I can relate - year of misdiagnosis and one day my Dr. was out and the Dr. filling in had a brainstorm and tested me for everything he could think of. I've developed some other GI issues as well - all related to being undiagnosed so long. The body can only take so much! Sometimes it's a blessing though.

Hi I just joined SP and was happy to find this team. I have been GF for almost 8 years now. I spent about 12 years (maybe more) trying to find out what was wrong with me. I went to many doctors. They would say I had dyspepsia, dysbiosis, IBS, and gave me Prilosec. No one could figure it out and I felt they thought it was all in my head. My father encouraged me not to give up. Finally I said to myself it has to be something I'm doing every day. What's that? Eating and drinking. Finally I went to a naturopathic Dr.. She took a history and had me do some tests. She figured out in 2 weeks what no conventional Dr. could in 12 years! Yay! No more stomach aches, headaches and persistant fatigue. I hope they are teaching new doctors more about gluten intolerance (what I have) and celiac disease. I now have Diverticulosis I believe because it took so long to diagnose gluten intolerence. That's another diet thing. I can live with that! Good to be here!
