What Are The Health Risks of Gluten?
For most of her life, Ginger Hudock has suffered from food allergy symptoms without even knowing it. She continued eating standard American diet – meat, fat, sugar and dairy, processed and refined foods. Ginger was totally clueless about proper nutrition!
In 2007, Ginger started getting sick with headaches and intestinal pains chronically for one entire year! So, she went back and forth to see her physician for a few times, but only prescribed nothing other than drugs to masked the symptoms. Not until one doctor finally advised her to try eliminating gluten and dairy products from her food intake. Surprisingly, after a few days, Ginger was 80% better! Then, after running serious of tests and reactivities for food allergy, it was found out that Ginger was indeed gluten intolerant.
“Almost ten years ago, I began having daily headaches and abdominal pains. Finally, after crying my eyes out more than once, I eliminating wheat to see if that made a difference. Bingo! I was severely allergic to gluten products. Since then I have discovered additional food sensitivities and allergies. When my friends and acquaintances learn about this, the most common response is “I could never give up bread!”. That would most likely have been my response as well, before starting this ten-year journey. However, I have been shown many blessings as a result of this “hardship” including my new career helping others.” –Ginger Hudock
