  1. I could have written this story myself. I am 74 and lived a life of misery...14 major surgeries and 10 autoimmune diseases. I have permanent damage to my spine from scoliosis and AMD in eyes. I read that all of these are gluten related. The lack of nutrients to my body has caused so much but I am grateful to have discovered that it is this little powder gluten that I need to avoid for life to be a healthier human. Who reads the fine print that says "gluten" is a problem...it's been there in every health article forever along with milk and dairy but who really believes it?
  2. I had many, many inflammatory issues and was so grateful that they were relieved when I quit gluten. Who knew...so many years of misery and Dr. appointments and a life we can't regain but life is once again much better.
