I went completely gluten free for 2 years and it did nothing.

My IBS symptoms were so bad they tested me for celiac, and no to that too.

Well me too, no problems with gluten. Everyone has different things to figure out and try.

I do definitely suspect car accidents and neck injuries as a common cause of fibromyalgia, and other autoimmune disorders. The connection between neck trauma and fibromyalgia is actually well known. And it definitely was the cause in my case. But I only recently figured out the connection with allergies and psoriasis.

I was told I have FM in 1999 but I believe it was a dsyfunctional thyroid. Then I did go thru an emotional trauma after that and who knows. I know it's probably a lot of stuff gone wrong.

I just posted a new find in Alt Med on a psorasis herbal. New to me and who knows. I read a lot of reviews on those using it.

I'm semi gluten free and good with that choice.

Holiday Season is the only respite against all this. Over-medicated society? Watch these TV ads and they will confirm America is an over-medicated society.
I have to agree with you there, I hate those ads too. But as my husband always says, the adverse and side effects of these drugs-which the FDA mandates these manufacturers publicize during the ads if they mention what the drug is intended to treat- tends to make me want to run off screaming in terror to get away from them. Certainly doesn't make me want to run out and ask my doctor "if they're right for me".

Right? It's like an anti-ad.

But seriously, they should not be allowed.

I believe the U.S. and New Zealand are the two countries that run TV ads.

I heard one of the side effects of one of the drugs for depression, was depression. Thats what you are taking the drug for! Another I heard, stated a side effect as death. Really, death is a side effect.

You can be sensitive to things without being truly allergic. And it's not always gluten. Sometimes it's soy (which is in EVERYTHING), dairy, etc. There are tests for these things, or you can do elimination diets to find what things you are sensitive too.

On another note, I have no gluten issues either. But I've had 2 traditional medicine docs (gastroenterologist and a general practitioner) both tell me that no one should eat gluten. The gastro was particularly passionate about it. He said it basically has no nutritive value and is tough for our bodies to process.

People have been trained to ignore those long lists of horrible side effects. Their MD assures them the side effects are very rare, and that they are mostly imagined anyway.

My daughter's doctor basically said the same thing a couple of weeks ago.

I agree that the best test is just seeing what works for you. Some healthy foods may not be healthy for you.
A few years ago I ran into a problem where soy was causing female problems. I didn't make the connection until after my surgery and talking with my doctor.
