Well, this is really getting interesting now. With some digging I'll bet we could find out some really interesting stuff about ourselves. I'm also gluten-free but more entirely wheat-free, which includes rye, barley, and nearly all oats, unless they are specifically gluten/wheat residue free. Not only that but I can't eat anything with citric acid, either naturally-occurring or as an additive. I can't eat anything with even a trace of soy. I can't eat eggs or anything with traces thereof. I also can't eat peanuts or their trace amounts. Those were all diagnosed forty years ago.
Within the past few years I've also had to add carrots, potatoes, and rice to the list of things I can't eat. This past spring fish was removed.
Now I have realized that I can't eat any animal flesh at all. It all makes me feel ill. I can and do still eat organic dairy products, as well as
very clean oats, but other than that I drink very high quality coffee. That's the sum total of my diet. Coffee and oatmeal. And guess what? I
feel great when I stick to it. Any deviation though and I feel it immediately. I have strong suspicions about why these things are okay for me but
I'm still not 100% certain.
I went from having pain in one form or another in every part of my body to total comfort, perfect vision, peaceful sleep, and just general well-being
by cutting food out of my life. It took two years to do this but along the way I've discovered more about food than I knew as a life-long foodie and
pastry professional, Paris-trained. Food is not what we think it is. It's medicine. You must treat it that way. If you don't know what that food
does in your body then don't put it there. It can only heal you if you understand it. Western medicine is wrong about virtually everything they
tell us about our bodies and about our nutritional needs.
