*UPDATE* 3-4 Months later.
Hi Everyone, I just wanted to update this post with some results.
I wrote in December regarding a SEVERE detox/post gluten free I was experiencing that was absolutely miserable. HOWEVER, I remained strictly gluten-free (100% - I'm really REALLY careful) and I can happily say now that after 3-4 months, my skin and health are better than they have ever been.
My skin is CLEAR (okay, not perfect, whose is?) but compared to the cystic-acne nightmare that covered my back, arms, face, neck, chest, etc... I now only have small breakouts on my face. Something I consider 'normal' so I no longer feel like hiding in my basement.
I also have been able to start weening myself off more of the supplements I usually desperately needed. I was constantly depleted of magnesium and vitamin B -- and now I seem to be retaining it. As a bonus - my hair is starting to grow back!!! After surgery, other illness, etc. my hair had thinned dramatically and I gave up thinking it would come back.. The only downside is the hair thats coming back - is grey haha. I'm in my early twenties so that's thrilling, but hey! it's hair!
I hope this post helps others when they are deciding 'is all this gluten-free hasse worth it? I feel worse!' - there IS a light at the end of the tunnel.
Goodluck to all of you, and best wishes for good health!
