#518787 Do You Lose Your Marbles?

Posted by on 19 March 2009 - 11:40 AM

Wow, you just reminded me that when my daughter was younger, while she was still having seizures and before going gluten free, she used to tilt her face up to the sky and say that she could feel God touching her face. She spoke of reincarnation at a very early age before she had ever heard of the topic anywhere. I always wondered if her seizures were giving her a window into another realm. Maybe it was the gluten?

On the subject of mysticism, or whatever you want to call it, there are many who believe those who are made psychically weak/tired are more susceptible to spirit activity or more in sync with the supernatural side of the world. They also believe that link won't necessarily vanish if the person becomes healthy/alert.

I experience in similar ways, more so when glutened (or exhausted), but I don't think it's because of or even related to gluten, nor do I think it's a sign of insanity. But, one of my parents believes that kind of stuff. If I had different or less understanding parents, I would be worse off. I've never felt god touch my face, heard that tends to be more seizure-related, but you never know. ;)

If a person is having a topical reaction from a particular product, you are correct, that would be an allergy which is a totally different animal than an internal, autoimmune reaction.

The reason I do not react is because I took the time to learn the correct information and follow it to a tee. This isn't rocket science.....really.

On top of being celiac, many here have a wheat allergy. Apply an allergen to your face and you can get zits, eczema, hives, etc. I happen to have that problem. I also tend to get eyeliner on my fingers, I am not a good applier, and I don't like putting "poison" on my face.. So is this really a crime to post about?
