I am sure that all of you know Micki Rose – a frequent contributor to the FoodsMatter site, expert on all things gluten-related and founder of the Truly Gluten Free site.
Some of you may have noticed that we have not actually had any articles from her since her marathon reviews of the Gluten Summit in October 2014. Well that is because she has been struggling with her own health problems. Always food and gluten sensitive, over the last few years she has increasingly suffered from fatigue, anaemia, migraine, mouth sores, jaw pain…. She continued to remove foods from her diet until she was down to a mere handful of foods and only weighed six stone…. At which point she started to wonder if something else was involved.
It was – and tracking that down and, even more difficult, addressing the issues, is what she has been doing for the last eighteen months.
To celebrate her return to normal eating – yes, chocolate, wine, nuts, eggs, beef, coconut, tea, honey….. – something which she had truly wondered if she would ever be able to do again – she has written a long and absolutely fascinating post on the Truly Gluten Free site. If you have any interest at all the totally indissoluble link between the mind and the body, read it!
