  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I am new to the Gluten Free diet too. I am an occupational therapist, and have had experience working with kids who have celiac disease and who for various reasons are on gluten free diets. I know that from personal experience... my mood swings are a direct result of birth control. I was on the ring for 2 years and noticed every month getting worse and worse until I finally took myself off of it. I called my naturopath and she put me on a cleanse to try to speed up getting rid of all the hormones in my body. Its been over 6 months (not on a gluten free diet the whole time) and it is getting much better. I know we are all attached to our birth control, but the reality is, and I have known this for years, that BC is tricking your body into thinking it is pregnant with only 1 or 2 hormones, but not all the pregnancy hormones. This really messes with the body. Something to think about. As for vitamin deficiency, that goes hand in hand with gluten intolerance. If you have no enzymes to break down gluten, then the small intestine is unable to process the rest of what we eat and get all the good vitamins and minerals that we need to feel good. When you take away the gluten, then the small intestine is able to function like it should and get what we need from our food. I am also fighting with vitamin and mineral deficiency right now and working with an acupuncturist and naturopath to fix it. I would take a look at all other medications you are taking and research them online. You would be surprised what you will find out about how they affect our internal organs. If it is not absolutely necessary then you might consider making changes with what you put into your body other than food. If you want anymore info on this stuff let me know. I am a resource queen, I have to be for my clients. I can find resources for you just about anywhere. Especially in Texas and so far, many are very affordable. Take care and good luck!
