I just want to tell everyone what I just realized this morning! I decided off and on to cut down on gluten but mainly to lose weight which always helped me but it was about 80/20. But for the past 3 weeks I cut gluten and dairy except organic whole fat yogurt and grass fed butter once in awhile. I was on the Keto diet- basically just meat, fish, chicken, nuts, lots of veggies and occasionally fruit. Hard at first but I liked the way I feel on it.
Last night I went over to a friend’s house and she served this homemade barley salad and French bread and Brie. Not wanting to be rude, I had about a cup of the salad and two pieces of bread/brie. OMG!!
I woke up this morning with a huge splitting headache! I NEVER get headaches- now I know how others feel-
My eyes are itchy, my sinuses inflamed and congested and nonstop diarrhea and cramps for the past three hours! Not only that but I think I am having a panic attack - I’ve had one before but this makes no sense - there is nothing to panic about! I Hate this feeling!
I have been researching all morning inbetween visits to the bathroom and I am Definitely allergic to wheat/gluten! Question- does this run in the family? My oldest daughter who is a hard worker is always exhausted - she is 25- can’t lose weight, always freezing cold no matter the temp and now has to tingling in her arm every once in awhile. I researched that and it said that is another symptom of gluten intolerance!
Another question- my youngest daughter- 20, always has her throat and glands swell up after eating cashews and hummus. Is that related as well?
I do not eat lectins because my body rejects it.
I’m beginning to think we are all suffering because of this. We workout, look healthy and play in sports but I’m beginning to think my daughters need to do a complete change of diet!
Also is there anyway I can detox my body quickly today? I feel miserable! 😢
