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.
