Yes, you read that correctly. I developed an allergy to nail polish after religiously painting my nails for over 15 years. I know it seems crazy…everyone paints their nails. Even some extremely health conscious women still get manicures. It’s one of those things that we don’t give any thought to.
Most of you know by now that I was forced to adopt a gluten free lifestyle around 2 years ago. Though I’ve been biopsied and tested for Celiac disease (I’m negative), I know that my body has difficulty digesting gluten. Well, that is until now…dun dun dun!
Let’s rewind to my first post about gluten, “Confessions of a Former Gluten Glutton”. In it I stated that a good friend of mine recommended that I go gluten free when she learned that a stubborn rash on my shin hadn’t gone away for months. I rolled my eyes but decided to give it a try. Much to my surprise, I was able to heal it after several weeks of a gluten free diet. Once I had removed gluten, that same friend also spoke to me about lectins.
