Some of you knows that I have troubles with my health for many years. Fibromyalgia and other troubles so I thought you would be happy to hear about this!
A few weeks ago, I read about micronutritions and how it affects people with fibromyalgia. Among those infos, I found that gluten was not so good for "us". So, I decided to cut gluten from my diet and cow milk also, for the same reason.
I truly have nothing to lose.
For many many years, I've had belly pain. Doctors kept telling me to drink more water, do more exercises and that it was because of fibromyalgia. To sum it up, they did not know what was causing those terrible belly aches.
For a little more than a week now, I cut all gluten from my nutrition.
Yesterday, as I was preparing to go to bed, I felt weird...strangely light, and I did not know why. Then, when I finally got in my bed and began to strategically place all of my pillows and cushion around me (I always do that to remove some pressure from my limbs and trying to reduce the pain) I understood what the feeling was.
My belly was not hurting!
For the first time in many many years, I went to bed without any kind of pain in my belly!
Can you imagine how it feels like? Not one single night in as long as I can remember did I go to bed without having cramps. It feels so strange...so...GOOD!
What pisses me off is that no doctor saw that I might have been intolerant to gluten since childhood, even slightly. Oh well...
I make my own gluten free bread (because the one at the market not only is expensive, but taste like cardboard, mine's good! ). Eat gluten free pasta, make DELICIOUS gluten free desserts! Oh yes! My brownies are just AMAZING! Better then the two bite brownies you get at the superstore!
Even if the gluten free diet does not help with the fibromyalgia, it is worth it because my belly does not hurt anymore!
I replaced cow milk with Almond milk. That has seemed to help as well. It is very good. I tried soy milk and...yerr...did not like it at all (and I had belly cramps afterward, so...).
I cannot believe the difference it is making. My gosh! If I had known, I would have done that long ago!
Hopefully, in a few weeks, I will see more benefits from that diet. Wish me luck!
I write this journal entry to not only share my joy, but to help people who might have felt the way I do and does not know what caused their discomfort.
