I have had issues with consuming gluten ... however, I now follow a gluten free diet and feel much better! Always interested to hear other people with same and their experiences.

I'm a junk food junky. I'd be a very non-compliant diabetic for sure. 

I don't drink alcohol. It makes me feel worse.

I don't eat red meat. It makes me feel worse.

I'm trying Bragg's Raw Non-filtered Apple Cider Vinegar (1 Tablespoon twice a day) It's tough to take, but I'm starting to feel a little better. It's only been a few weeks, so we'll see...

I also started taking Tumeric. It seems to be helping too. 

Look them up...see what they can do for you. Ask your Doctor if okay to try. They both do so many great things, and are natural.

We should avoid caffeine. I don't. It's the only crutch I have that enables me to get up out of bed to do the things I have to do. A little bit helps me so much!

I pray a lot. For strength and for others having to deal with what I deal with everyday. 

I have no food allergies. I've tried Gluten Free Diet... couldn't tell a difference after 6 months, so I don't pay that much attention anymore.

I hope this helps...we're all different, so to your Doctor first before adding anything to your health program.

God Bless & Much Love!

@Courtney_J I like to think that it does... I have a few friends that have done Whole30 and rave about the benefits. Apparently the energy boost is incredible. I think it's supposed to be anti-inflammatory and more "natural". I haven't tried it myself yet because I think it's really restrictive and I haven't had time to talk to my doctor about it. I don't want to mess with meds.
