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).
