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.
