Thanks to everyone who took a few minutes to answer my survey. I'd love to hear your story too. Take my survey: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/9ZGDJC3
Here are a couple of responses about people's experiences with/relationship to gluten.
"I was dealing with a lot of GI issues, so starting 2 years ago I started making changes to the way I was eating."
"Husband is celiac, I just get crippling migraines."
"I never realized that gluten had such an adverse affect on sufferers of epilepsy- no esteemed doctor ever made me aware of this fact. However, since eliminating gluten from my diet, I have felt a marked improvement in my health and over all well being."
"During an elimination diet, I experienced significant digestion problems and joint pain when I reintroduced wheat and cow dairy products."
"I am somewhere between Celiac and Intolerent. The older I get the worse the intolerence becomes, to the point that I know have developed other auto immune disorders that are a function of digestive side effects."
"I believe in switching up grains, and providing more variety to myself and my family. 'Balance in everything.'"
"I'm also gliaden intolerant."
