Here's hoping that my story may help others who are sensitive or intolerant to gluten.
A couple years ago, I was sick for 4 months. Every day. The doctor couldn't figure it out. I eventually started to lack nutrition and energy. He did
a celiac test and it came back negative. I did some research and decided to try an elimination regimen. I cut out sugar, then lactose, then fat, then
MSG, etc. No change... Then I cut out gluten. Two days later, I was revived! I did a few tests to make sure that was the problem and every time, I got
sick and then recovered when I cut it back out. For the past two years, I have been avoiding gluten for the most part (some things are worth the
suffering). I discovered I have a tolerance threshold, so I could have a little bit without getting sick, but when I exceeded that threshold, I would
Fast forward to about 2 months ago, I was doing some research on probiotics (totally unrelated to my intolerance) and discovered how sugar has really
messed up our guts over the years (See Video
here). More research on probiotics that could
possibly help balance that bacteria ensued. Talking with those knowledgeable on the subject, I ran across what is considered the best probiotic on the
marked, so naturally, I got some. It's called Prescript-Assist. I've been taking it since then. Accept no substitutes! It's expensive, but it's
very highly rated.
Over the past month, I have eaten gluten many times (maybe 10 times) and never reached my threshold... What gives? I can have gluten now??? So, back
to the research... And what I found has been pretty amazing.

In a startling paper discussing treatment alternatives for celiac disease, research from George Washington University School of Medicine finds that
probiotics provide a viable solution for gluten digestion and intestinal health – and likely their absence provides the smoking gun for the
cause of gluten sensitivities.
I just ate a WW tortilla wrapped around my morning omelet. Delicious! I can't believe I can eat gluten again! I imagine if I ate a lot, I may reach a
threshold, but I have no intention of eating a bunch of carbs anyway, so I think I'm pretty safe.
Hope this helps someone!
