Celiac Disease: Do's And Don'ts Part 2
There are support groups for people with Celiac Disease where you can find encouragement, share experiences, get hints and tips on how best to cope and where to buy gluten-free products, or just to get it of your chest.
Be aware though that you will have to stay on a gluten-free diet indefinitely; digesting even the smallest amount of gluten will trigger the inflammation in the small intestine again, will do damage, and can cause the symptoms to return.
It is not going to be an easy road to travel and you will encounter several road-bumps, pitfalls and detours. Keep at it though and eventually you will come out victoriously where this condition is concerned.
Make life a little easier on yourself by finding cookbooks which focus on dishes with gluten-free ingredients and/or talking to a dietitian. Once the gluten are removed from your diet the small intestine will start to heal, but that can take quite a while.
Yes, some drastic changes have to be made in your diet, but those are only for your own benefit. You will feel better in a few weeks and it can even occur that within a few days you already will notice a huge difference and feel like a new person.
Life is subject to change; some changes are enforced and others are by choice. You can become and feel like a new person whenever you are ready to make a positive change in your life. You will notice a major difference!
and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
