  4. The Good News #

    Regarding celiac disease testing, holistic practitioners already have an easier way. Avoid all four glutens (wheat, rye, oats, and barley) then reintroduce one at a time with three days in between each one. That way you know which ones effect you and which ones don’t.

    Still, if the can develop a simple blood test, that would be awesome.
