I went to an interesting class tonight at the OSU Center for Integrative Medicine in Cols.
You can google Nutri-Genomic Medicine to find out more if you're interested - cuz I can't really get it into a nutshell here, especially after a long day.  The Doc who is their medical director gave the class & definitely some food for thought LOL - but it seems gluten (among other things) is a huge culprit for so many people - for many reasons - affecting many bodily systems.  I've been thinking about going gluten free and now am totally convinced it's worth a try - though I'm trying to imagine a world without bread.  Love to make it - love to eat it......but not at the expense of feeing/being well.
 
If anyone would like - I'd be glad to post a link for this Integrative Medicine Center - they offer free classes.

Here's the link.  I hope it gets you there - never left one before.
 
Dr. Glen Aukerman is the Medical Director and gave this particular lecture.  You can get a class list at www.medicalcenter.osu/go/integrative
 
Hope it helps!

Hi G*reed - Magnesium and B vitamin deficiencies along with gluten intolerance were the cental issues.  I wasn't aware of all the connections to various health issues just these things relate to, or the reasons we have become deficient.  Interesting.  I'm glad to hear you are feeling better after going gluten free.   Any tips on coping with the switch?
