Back in March, after multiple visits to an allergist who found nothing, I started searching for answers on my own. After some research, I decided that some of my symptoms were those of a gluten sensitivity (much different from a gluten allergy). After much thought, I went gluten free to see if it would help me feel better. After 5 months, I can whole-heartedly say that going gluten free is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. One of the problems I was having was joint inflammation, especially in my knee. I’ve had a knee issue for years and every little movement hurt. I went to an orthopedic doctor a few times and they could never find anything “fixable.” They only found swelling that caused my knee cap to shift – which they could do nothing about.
Now that I’ve been gluten free for 5 months, I haven’t looked back. I feel so much better. My knee pain is gone and I just feel better in general.
I decided to take an Everlywell Food Sensitivity test to see if wheat, barley, and other gluten based items showed up as a sensitivity and sure enough, they did. While they only showed up as a mild sensitivity, I think this might be because I haven’t had any of it in so long. I don’t know exactly how the tests work, but I think this might have had something to do with only receiving a mild sensitivity instead of a higher one. Wheat, gluten, and barley showed up as some of my highest sensitivities so this confirms that I have sensitivities.
Below is a timelapse of receiving the product, taking the test, and sending it back for testing.
And, here’s a few pieces of my results!
