Up The Mountain, And Out Of The Fog

Entry posted by %s - 1,069 views

I began my gluten free trek in about May of 2012. I did classic gluten free for a few months and then went grain free. Last November at about 6 months gluten free I had my first nutrient absorption test. In spite of my natural, whole food, organic diet, and many supplements my nutrient levels were low. Especially the Vitamin B levels were unacceptable. I felt rundown and foggy. I dragged myself through my days, Sometimes I felt better and sometimes really bad.

I knew I had to do something more and fast. I thought I should focus on healing my gut. It was recommended that I take IgG for that, which I did. Next I had a food antibody test done and began a rotational diet. After a while of that I cut out all foods that I had antibodies too for a few months. Finally, I began to take digestive enzymes to help break down my food. The Functional Medicine Nurse I visit also asked me to take herbal adrenal gland support.

After 30 years of foggy fatigue, I AM BETTER. I feel it. My recent nutrient test showed my B levels have gone up to high levels. Each and every other nutrient was adequate to good! Except Asparagine which was mildly deficient.

Now, I have no desire to run a marathon,(I feel I have already done that) but am excited about what I can do with my life now. For one thing I have 2 more young ones to get through home school. I have 5 youth children who are beginning to have exciting ideas of what they can do with their lives! My husband stayed true in spite of the great trials of celiac. So, as the Lord gives me strength, I am getting up and going on with my life. This has forever changed me. I plan to write my "owed to Celiac" one of these days.

If you need courage, I am living proof that one can be delivered from 30 years of celiac. I was dying, but am alive again. There is HOPE! I couldn't always see it, but there is!
