How long did you struggle with your digestive pain? Did it feel like a black cloud followed you everywhere you went?
Because that’s how my life felt as I struggled with Celiac disease. Honestly, battling this illness for the better part of a decade was mentally and physically draining. I made a lot of mistakes and sometimes didn’t know if I’d ever get better.
I got really good at doing one thing that really made a difference, though. Sure, all of the diet, supplements and lifestyle changes were absolutely vital to my recovery, but it was pain that got me through and out the other side. I got really good at using my pain to push me through all the tough times.
I’m so grateful now to be able to say that my gut is healed and more and more time has passed since I had agonizing diarrhea 10-15 times per day. But I’ve got to say, the memory of that pain is still right there. It keeps me focused on continuously taking care of my body, so I can be the best father, friend and health engineer I can be. And every once in a while we get an email, seemingly from out of nowhere, from someone who is totally on the same wavelength.
With that said, I’d like to introduce our latest rockstar, Carly, who much like myself was given the standard Celiac disease prescription (a gluten-free diet) and sent on her way. At first, this can seem like you’ve been given a golden ticket to a healthy and happy life.
After all, your doctor knows best right? Well, if you’ve been following us for any length of time, you’ll know that most Celiacs are slowly dying, because the Gluten-Free diet is simply not enough.
Read on to learn what it took for Carly to heal and feel better than she ever thought she could. [click to continue…]
