Celiacs: More Common Than Thought.

Hello, my lovely readers. I know I've been gone for a while, but I have some news to share with you. I've finally come across what's wrong with me. I'm a celiac.

Never heard of it?

Celiacs is a condition where your body sees gluten as threat, so in return, your body attacks it.

Yeah, it's not fun.

Last week, I went gluten free for five days and noticed tremendous differences.

My major concern disappeared: My constipation.

I literally tried everything from fiber to more water, but going gluten-free moved my flow in about two days.

I also noticed that gluten causes mucus to form in my throat, my stomach to swell, and my left leg to ache. 

 I'm also guessing that it causes my weight problems because it's inflamming my stomach and not allowing me to absorb nutrients.

So  could you be celiac?


Here's some things to ask yourself:


Are you full after barely eating much food? And I mean, full and bloated for literally hours? I once ate food and was bloated for three hours. Not fun.


Are you chronically constipated? Or have diahrea? Celiacs can cause either.


Do you lose weight for no reason? Or seem unable to gain weight no matter how much you eat?


Does your stomach hurt you for no reason? Every day?


There's a lot of other symptoms that come with celiacs and I have yet to figure out what else it has caused me.


After I went gluten-free for 5 days, I ate gluten on the 6th day. It didn't taste very good to me. It immediately caused mucus in my throat. Right now, I'm going on a minimum of a 2-week gluten-free diet. I worry that I could be wrong on these things, but with the relief I've felt, I know this is definitely what's wrong with me.


Which also reminded me of the days I would eat cake, or some really glutenous foods, and they would seem hard to swallow at times. I'm guessing that's a reaction as well.


If you just haven't been feeling well for a long time for no reason, you most likely have a food intolerance. And I advise you to do your research and cut out whatever you suspect to being doing your body harm.


Trust me, it'll make life so much better.

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
