I’ve been struggling with stomach issues for about 4 years now… the latest from my doctor is that it’s definitely gluten-intolerance, might even be Celiac’s disease. Sigh. So, I’m trying to go completely gluten-free, but the withdrawal symptoms are nuts: headaches, mood-swings, irritability… it goes on.

I’ve been mainlining a lot of tea as a result, and yesterday my sweet husband offered to make me a cup of something before bed. I requested this since it’s hard for a coffee drinker like him to mess up. While it didn’t do anything for the headaches or mood-swings, it was a nice little cuppa before bed. Hopefully my hunny makes this tea-making thing a habit, I could get used to it for sure!

Gluten-intolerance is no fun, sorry that you’re plagued with these problems. Don’t know if you like to cook, but there’s this amazing cookbook, “Clean Food” by Terry Walters. Her kids are intolerant/allergic to just about everything, so her recipes are sans gluten, lactose, etc. yet still super delicious.

Hope you start to feel better soon!

I’m willing to try anything at this point! I’ll have to look into it, thanks for the suggestion!

oh no, so sorry to hear! I have a gluten issue as well but it is not Celiac’s… much milder, and that alone is not fun. I hope you figure it out soon xx

Me too! You’d think that they would’ve figured out what was wrong with me by now! Where’s Dr. House when you need him? He’d have me figured out in a week, tops.

Hi there! I am a big fan of tea in it’s many forms: white, green, black, red, herbal, etc. Since the removal of my gallbladder I am finding I sway more towards straight teas, such as black or oolong, and dessert-like teas.

I hope you find my reviews helpful…
