For years, every time I ate something with wheat, dairy, eggs, yeast, or gluten, my body would violently react. I would get black eyes, my stomach would blow up, and my nose would get terribly stuffy! I would feel miserable after suffering the severe consequence of a compromised immune system for decades.
Somehow I knew instinctively that I was different and something was terribly wrong. The human body was made to enjoy foods- not battle them-
But no one would believe me. Family members thought I was crazy! I even went to a young doctor in his thirties, who told me my body was suppose to blow up- That made absolutely no sense to me. I knew that, that was wrong advice- perhaps my Cerebral Palsy could be part of the cause. Perhaps it had something to do with the DPT shot given me at infantcy. I did not know for sure- or to what extent. But I was not going to give up! I kept searching for answers.
Through reading, I saw in black and white where it stated that sometimes the digestive system and swallowing could be affected in people with C.P. (Cerebral Palsy.) What about those who did not have Cerebral Palsy and those who have Celiac Disease?
Well, for the last 2 years, I have been on the road to recovery. I have eliminated all the foods I am allergic to, go for acupuncture, and, I work one-on-one with a naturopathic doctor that truly understands and cares- I have been searching out, baking, and trying new recipes.
Because I was asked to write a blog for all of you, I have agreed. Know that you are not alone anymore! You are in good company and there is someone else out there that truly understands what you are going through.
Stay tune. There’s more to come…
