About Me

I'm a tenure-track professor in textiles and clothing. I also have two living children: a four-year-old daughter and a one-year-old son. Our food intolerance journey started when my son developed colic. It turns out he's severely intolerant to casein and corn. In August 2008, I was diagnosed with autoimmune hypothyroidism, halo nevi, and rosacea. On my own, I figured out that I'm intolerant to gluten and corn.


My symptoms of autoimmune disorders...
Idiopathic anaphylaxis (attacks with no identifiable cause), hair loss, depression, anxiety, pica (I enjoyed licking metal as a child), low blood pressure, angular chelitis, anemia, elevated liver enzymes, rosacea, depigmented spots on my hands (halo nevi), constipation, bloating (looked like I was pregnant for years), gas, heavy (irregular) periods, abdominal cramps, pain in my knees and shoulders, chronically dry eyes, pregnancy loss at 17 weeks, extremely dry skin, chronic dandruff, fatigue, muscle twitches, itchy rashes, brittle fingernails with vertical ridges, frequent hiccups, episodes of unexplained weight loss and gain, terrible acne as a teenager, hair is turning gray at 33 years old...


A lot of these have improved significantly on the GFCFMF diet! I still have a ways to go, but I haven't felt this good since I was a teenager.
