A Sample from the intro to Beyond Gluten – Sandi shares a very personal story
Can you imagine a six-year-old child with migraine headaches? That was me. I would be outside playing and my head would start pounding. My vision would get distorted and I would start feeling sick to my stomach. I’d have to come inside, take an Excedrin—which I now know helped set the stage for digestive issues to come—and cover my head with a pillow until the pain passed. As I got older, migraines became the norm. They would typically last three days and then start over again. My mom also had severe migraines. She would have to go to the hospital and get pain meds injected into her neck. I figured this would be something hereditary I’d have to deal with for the rest of my life. Ouch! I ended up on heavy painkillers later on that put me in a continuous mental fog and created continuing constipation problems. It was the first of many health issues I would have over my lifetime.
