Trying To Control My Health condition By Being Gluten Free
Written by J Coletta. Monday, January 9th, 2012
I have Multiple Sclerosis and try to treat my symptoms as much as possible through good diet, exercise and alternative therapies. I read up on diets specifically to help MS symptoms and I came across research explaining how cutting down/cutting out gluten can help people with MS. I read about the reasons behind this and the stories from people this has helped, I decided to at least give it a try…
For a few months now I have been trying to avoid gluten and my symptoms do seem to be lessening so I am sticking with it. It can be quite difficult though, especially when eating out, luckily I don’t have to avoid gluten as rigidly as someone with Coeliacs disease so I can eat a few more products than a Coeliac which helps make life easier. I have found I am cooking more and experimenting with new foods (e.g. mashed carrots and parsnips instead of pasta with my bolognaise etc, it goes together surprisingly well!!) The one thing I haven’t done yet though is try any ‘free from’ foods, I have just avoided pasta and bread totally, but now I am ready to try some of these alternatives to add a bit of variety back into my diet. Hopefully you will find my story interesting and choose me as a winner.
Sorry for rambling on so long I am just quite passionate about the healing properties of food and using diet to control health conditions, I can be a bit of a bore with it lol.
Anyway that is me in a nutshell!!!
Thanks for reading
