Welcome!!

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.

Depression is anger without the motivation.

I think depression runs rampant in society today because we are all so obsessed with making a living instead of living our lives.

Live your dreams, it's not as hard as it may seem...On your hopes you must lean...From your fears you have to wean yourself.

Welcome to the Team!
I experience the symptoms of GERD when I have certain foods such as tea, too much fat etc. Having been on a gluten free diet for 32 years I know it is not gluten exposure. Each person reacts differently. I recommend keeping a food diary. It will help track down other sensitivities. Good Luck!

I've gone gluten free since January 2012 because my acupuncturist thought my symptoms pointed to gluten, dairy and corn. It was difficult to illuminate all three from my diet, but what a life changer it has been! I have always had problems with constipation, but that is totally gone! The relief from migraine headaches is almost gone. When I consume just a small amount of gluten or corn, I experience a headache within 12 hours.

There totally is life without gluten, dairy or corn!!

Hello Everyone!

I'm back at SP because I recently decided to go gluten free and I love the trackers here for keeping tabs on diet and nutrition.

I am self-diagnosed gluten intolerant. (When I mentioned the idea to my doctor, she just rolled her eyes.) I have had GERD for the past 4 years or so, and have been on PPIs for most of that time. Eating was becoming an awful experience. Every time I tried to eat pizza or a sandwich my throat would close up and I'd have to down lots of water just to swallow.

When I read The Wheat Belly Diet, I realized that wheat might be causing a lot of my troubles. Actually for a long time I've KNOWN that I feel better without wheat, but realizing a lot of the medical problems I was developing might get better after eliminating it was the final spur I needed for change.

I haven't (knowingly) had any gluten since Jan 2. And awesomely enough I haven't had any choking while eating!!! Still dealing with going off the PPIs though, but getting better all the time.

Looking forward to making some friends who are on the same journey,
Kiglitt
