September 24, 2015.  Like many recovering alcoholics who memorialize the date that they took their last drink, I memorialize the date I last ingested glutens.  I had decided to try a gluten free diet starting the day before, but my car had broken down and I was stuck waiting for my mechanic to repair my […]

I switched from a 35-year lifestyle of eating junk food, drinking a 6-pack of soda each day, watching a lot of TV, drinking alcohol, taking drugs, and averaging 4-5 hours of sleep nightly. Instead of those negative patterns, I began to […]
