What Good Things Have Happened To You Since Being Gluten Free

Recommended Posts

Well, I can't prove it's due to the gluten-free diet...but my eye sight has always gotten gradually worse every year (since 3rd grade) I go to get my eyes checked. This year, they got better! How weird is that? Also, every time in the past when going to the dentist, they had to scrape my teeth a good amount, the last two times they have hardly had to touch my teeth other than to polish them. I'll take it! Other than that obviously feeling WAY better physically and emotionally since going gluten-free. :D

I fixed my toilet this week all by myself! :lol:

I love that! There is something so gratifying and rewarding about doing repairs, etc. around the house. Way to go!

A unique one for me is I don't mumble anymore. I used to mumble really bad and people couldn't understand me and phone calls were annoying for both me and the person I was talking too because they couldn't hear me and I got tired of repeating myself. About a month in my Mom commented on the phone, "Jason, I heard every word you just said clear as day" instead of "are you sure the phone is by your mouth?" I never would have thought of that. So add that to anxiety levels dropped, always being sick gave me a fear of dying and leaving my young children alone and that is much better, headaches, dizziness (nothing worse then feeling dizzy all the time), asthma is better, and of coarse the GI issues are much better as well. When I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me, my wife used to say when she put her ear to my stomach it sounded like boiling water with rapid bubbling and popping. I am so glad that is gone.

I'm on week 5 of being gluten free. I don't have to go to the bathroom as much but still don't have normal stools. Earlier this week I was having stomach cramps in the evening. I don't think I glutened myself as I've been eating the same stuff and hadn't had symptoms before. I hope my brain comes back too.
