This blog is for the one who cannot eat wheat. It is about sharing experiences, pains but also joys and recipes of a life without wheat.
It all started with some itching at my lower back. A few weeks later I had additional itching on my right leg. It began to frighten me! What if all these red patches were to spread all over my body – err…
After a while I went to my dermatologist who diagnosed eczema. She gave me some chemical cream to put on the itching surface of my skin. So I put it for three weeks. The itching disappeared quite quickly soon after. But without surprise, it came back after a short while.
I went to see a homeopath who tackled the origin of this eczema. He gave me several homeopathic medications but none of them was efficient. Then he had the idea to look after some allergies by testing my blood.
