Really me? Gluten intolerant? I could not believe it. But, when I recently began the journey on an elimination diet to discover the cause of the inflammation in my body, I found out. Actually I discovered that I am intolerant to gluten, peanuts and pasturized dairy.
The reason that I chose to investigate, is that I have chronic uveitis. It is an inflammatory disease of the eye. When I have flare ups, I need to take steroids. Once, I even lost the vision in my right eye for several weeks due to complications. I also have a lot of hip pain that I do not have time for.
So, the particular elimination diet that I chose was “The Virgin Diet”
Now that I have found out the foods that cause the inflammation in my body, I will be doing my best to stay away from them to give my body a chance to heal. I will be sharing new information about that along the way
