I learned about Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance 5 years ago. As a child, I was skinny, scrawny and sickly. Seven and a half years ago, I stopped eating grains; and I felt a little bit better, but not much. I still knew nothing about Gluten. On a vacation, I briefly went off my diet and had bread twice, but it was the hidden Gluten in Sausage that got me. I developed an itch and thought I was going to lose my mind. I scratched until I bled, all day and in my sleep. During that time, I learned about Gluten and began the Gluten-Free diet. What a fantastic transformation!!!

In February, I had a run-in with Gluten again. I purchased a new shampoo and conditioner. It wasn't long before my scalp had blistered and had crusty stuff growing all over my head that was creeping down my face. I was gaining weight and couldn't figure out why...until I thought of the shampoo and read the label.

I grew up on a wheat farm and married the neighbor. Just about everything I made, had wheat in it...and it was delicious! After being Gluten free for a couple of years, I decided to treat my family to my homemade cinnamon rolls. I learned the hard way that I cannot even touch or inhale Gluten. All of those pastries have no appeal to me anymore, because I feel better at 63 than I have the whole rest of my life!
