I Got…. Nothin’!

Thanks to some good friends – we were able to make more fresh apple sauce tonight! Fruit is such a great gift to share, and friends are a blessing from God!

Remember how I used to get sinus infections… at least once a month, basically?

Well if you don’t remember, I did.  It was horrid.

It made me talk funny, and breathe funny, and sleep terribly.  I’ve struggled with them for years, but definitely worse since I moved to Wheat-Valley.  Ahem, I mean – Kansas.

With the rag weed startings to bulk up, and FALL ALLERGY SEASON – I’m interested to how my husband will do THIS allergy season, as compared to before we went of gluten.  So far, so good.

I’ll tell you what – I don’t miss taking antibiotics on a regular basis, (especially since they mess with my gut even further… )

They’re still in my refridgerator.

Why?  I don’t know.  Apparently, I am in disbelief.  After 16+ years of having them on hand – it’s hard to let go.

BUT,  I don’t miss the sinus headaches I used to get so badly!!!

Bye-Bye gluten.  You are no friend of mine!

[GLU-TEN]… acts like GLUE in your sinuses.  It’s true.

Even if you don’t have GI symptoms, but you have problems with sinusitis, ear infections or migraines…  You might have gluten sensitivity.  Just give it up for 30 days, see how you feel – it might be just what you need to get healthy again!

My husband reported feeling “better than he ever has” while traveling to a higher elevation this past week.  We don’t believe he has celiac… but he does have the genes for both gluten sensitivity and predisposal for celiac, should he continue to eat gluten.  He also has several relatives with GI issues, or inflammation issues…

Normally when he travels, he eats out a lot, is run down, and so feeds the cycle…  he loves to bring back some bug from his market.

This year – he went and got some fruit, turkey, carrots and peanut butter… and between his snack foods and that REAL food – he was good to go!  He even ran 3 times while he was out there – once for 8 miles!  So proud of him.

(And SO thankful he feels well…)

I’m sure dropping gluten has NOTHING to do with the cycle being reversed.  *wink*

“They speak of the glorious splendor of Your majesty—
    and I will meditate on Your wonderful works.”

Psalm 145:5
