My Story

0 Comments 14 October 2009

I was on two pills a day by age 28, supposedly, for the rest of my life. Still, most days I was not without symptoms: digestive troubles, migraines, fatigue, bloating, acne breakouts, acid stomach, etc.

Then, Taylor came across an article that mentioned similar symptoms in response to an oat allergy. I took the article to heart and after some research put myself on an elimination diet.

Within two weeks I was feeling better than I had in years and with my doctor’s approval quit both medications. A few months later I went to an allergist to be tested–this resulted in the worst doctor visit of my life. I was treated like a foolish child and then blood-tested for gluten sensitivity–which would come out a false negative, since I had been avoiding gluten for several months.

Losing hope, I visited a local bookstore to do some research, when out of the blue, renowned author (and celiac) Jacquelline Mallorca approached me and offered her help and advice. She inspired new hope in me and recommended EnteroLab, where despite my many months off of gluten, I received my diagnosis: severely intolerant to gluten (and to casein).

Kristen Campbell and her "wonder dog" Waylon are both severely intolerant to gluten. Celiac? Perhaps. But they've never had the endoscopy to tell (human or dog--does that exist?). Fortunately, they found each other! When Kristen isn't busy at work, she loves mixing up natural, gluten-free beauty products under her self titled line, spending time with her favorite "wonder dog" and catching up with friends.
