Hello AIP Community!
I’m not one to reinvent the wheel, here’s our post about Celiac Disease from our Instagram account. 🙂
- aipcommunityAI Awareness Monday- let’s talk Celiac Disease. For years and years I was told that unless I Tested positive for Celiacs, it was ok to eat gluten. I guess some doctors think feeling like 💩 for 1-3 months after ingesting gluten is ok? So now NCGS and NCWS are named and recognized, and I still get flack from people that just don’t get it. When I go to restaurants or even get a massage or pedicure I make sure the food is gluten free, the lotions and oils don’t have gluten from Vitamin E in them (I generally bring my lotions with me). When asked if I’m allergic I respond YES because being sick for at least a month is not worth the risk. What does being “glutened” mean to me? Severe inflammation, crippling back pain, IBS, up to 5#s of bloat just in the abdomen, puffy eyes, headaches, insomnia – just to name a few. So my heart goes out to those of you batting Celiacs. I’m sure AIP is a great source of relief for you. #celiacs#celiacsdisease #glutenintolerant#wheatintolerant #aiplife #aipcommunity#aipliving #everydayisagoodday#glutensucksanyways #nobandaids#youknowyourbody #guthealth#organiceverything #listentoyourbody#detoxifyyourlife #naturopathicmedicine
