Yesterday we went to a Chiropractor and an eye doctor. Last year when I had back pain we went to a normal doctor who ran tests for kidneys, bladder, and I would assume any other organ that could have been a culprit. I believe all came back fine and my back pain went away. So yesterday I had a massage and an adjustment. I'm not feeling much better in the way of back pain, and the chiropractor says I don't put my shoulders back far enough in my posture. He was telling me how much better people feel after adjustments and how much better they sleep. I didn't sleep any better and I don't feel any better. But maybe it takes time.

At the eye doctor I got a prescription for a pair of glasses, my eyes are way too dry for contacts.

Ok now to my diet plans. I'm going to try to eat a cleaner and healthier diet. Fruits and Veg with meat. I'm not going to cut out meat for my cholesterol, because my cholesterol is in healthy ranges. And here in Utah meat is always apart of dinner. This part might make you guys a little angry but I'm not going to cut out gluten either. I am surely going to cut back on processed foods which means cutting back on gluten but I am going to allow myself a piece of pizza on pizza night, or a roll at Sunday dinner. I'm not going to be eating half as much gluten as I do now, but I will be eating some.

Here are my plans. I am sure they will make me healthier and happier. I am now enrolled in a gym class at school. We stretch every day. We also run and lift weights. For now these are the plans I have decided on, if I don't get any better then I will have to cut out gluten. One step at a time. Thanks for all the responses and help you guys are amazing.

Sounds good to me. You may not need gluten free - just junky food free to feel better.

Of course your plans include studying hard, maybe a part time job, applying to colleges and not be distracted by boys. ;)

I think you are making responsible, adult changes to improve your health and life. Excellent.

Just a word about chiropractor v. massage... A good masseuse makes any massage from a chiropractor look like a 5 year-old banging on a drum.

You may need a good massage therapist, and quite frankly I only know of ONE that was found in a chiro's office. Look for a licensed therapist in your area through licensing boards in your state. Talk to them and see what they specialize in. Ask for references and call. A good masseuse is with their weight in gold.

Good luck and keep moving in a positive direction!

Just for your information, my dry eye problem went away when I went gluten-free. I just realized that the other day when I became aware of the fact that it had been six months since I had used any med. for my eyes.

I could be wrong as I read a lot of posts but didn't you test positive on blood tests? If you didn't then you have a sound plan but if you did have positive tests then staying off gluten would be a good idea. The decision is yours to make either way though and if you do need to be gluten free you may find that having the occasional gluten item makes you sick enough so you really don't want it anymore.
Either way I hope your feeling great soon.

Sounds good to me too.
With the meat, if you can, try cutting back on the fat part and see if it helps.
Here's hoping you don't have to get rid of gluten entirely and that these changes you are making will be enough.
If not, well, I think now you have a better idea of what to do.

Diagnosed celiac sprue as infant: failure to thrive & pneumonia-back on grains age 4. Began herbs 1971 combating chronic kidney disease/general ill health 1973. Avoid wheat family and "allergens" by 1980. Late 80's doc. diagnosed candida: cave-man diet. Diagnosed degraded myelin sheath 2006; need co-enzyme B vitamins. Discovered celiac fall 2007; finally told diagnosis as infant. Recently found I am salicylic acid intolerant. Ironically can't tolerate most herbs now. Can now eat brown rice & other gluten-free grains (except corn) & even maple syrup & now homeopathic medicine works! Am still exploring the shape of this elephant but I've made progress!

I saw a massage therapist and then a chiropractor for the adjustment. She was a very good massage therapist, i didn't like the chiropractor nearly as much. lol

Then tell her what worked and didn't. She can adjust the next massage. The worst thing you can do is stay quiet.

If you aren't getting the results you want after a few sessions try someone else.

FYI...dietary cholesterol--eating meat and eggs--has nothing to do with serum cholesterol levels.
