I've been seeing an alternative healer since September (I call her my hippie nutritionist). She is awesome and has helped me find relief from some of my symptoms by using real food supplements.
However, she can only help me to a certain point. She needs me to clean up my food scene. And that means I stop eating wheat.
She's been telling me this for MONTHS yet I keep eating wheat. I love it. I crave it. It comforts me. It's easy to eat.
We were chatting yesterday and I finally said that the real thing that is keeping me from compliance is that I'm not sure I totally buy it. Is this just a fad thing? She said no way, that many of her clients don't have food sensitivities at all. But she said my body has been screaming about it since she met me.
I know that the three most inflammatory foods are wheat, sugar and dairy. I should be able to do this. But I can't seem to pull the trigger on full avoidance. I do a little here and there but I need to go all in or it really doesn't matter.
Still wrestling with this one, I have no good answers yet. For now I will turn to my trusty Google and see what research I can rustle up. I have read that gallbladder and liver issues often stem from an undiagnosed food sensitivity. Maybe it's really a thing?
