Leslee and I were at wit’s end! She has been miserable with chronic diarrhea that has completely debilitated her life. After multiple tests and trials of treatments–she said “just put me on an antidepressant and I’ll eat myself into an oblivion of fatness.” Luckily, we had a brainstorm idea after reading some my recent blog posts and articles. We decided that she had nothing to lose by going wheat/gluten-free for a week just to see how she felt. That weekend she and her friend made homemade bread as her last hoorah! That evening she spent quality toilet time piling through gluten-free recipes. She went gung-ho the next week—fruit smoothies for breakfast, a green juice for lunch, and a gluten/wheat-free dinner. After 3 days exactly she was shocked at having 1 normal bowel movement a day. After 1 week, the “chicken skin” bumps on her arms had disappeared. It seemed too good to be true. She found a gluten-free pizza from Dominos and actually ate it without symptoms. After around 2 weeks of improving symptoms, she decided to test her theory by trying some bread—Bah Bahm–dropping bombs within 30 minutes! I saw her today and her weight was down, acne was cleared, bloating was gone and blood pressure (for which she takes meds) was remarkably low. Even her cardiologist was surprised by the results. She is staying with the diet because she feels so remarkable. She will be sharing some of her stories with us in the near future so stay tuned. She is a remarkably intelligent, charming, witty working mother. You will absolutely fall in love with her!!!! Thanks Leslee for letting me share your story. You are inspiring others!
