Thank you! This is my favorite episode so far. It often feels like my own doctors don't take my gluten sensitivity seriously. This episode was so refreshing. I look forward to reading all of the show links and adding some great recipes to my diet. I actually have a big problem with eating out in my area, even when I call ahead. I've ended up sick more times than I can count or worse sitting awkwardly at a table full of people with nothing to eat. Things have gotten easier since I had to give up gluten, dairy, and soy in 2012, but there is still a long way to go. Please continue to do exactly what you are doing to educate, inform, and help people who don't understand what is going on with their bodies. Many thanks!
