- THE ANCIENT GRAIN-
CHANGED MY LIFE!
In January of 2011, I was stricken with polymyalgia rheumatica. It was debilitating. I found I had little to no energy or strength. I could only function with massive doses of prednisone which quickly began to destroy my body. Within eighteen months I had to have cataract surgery on both eyes. I also had to have two parathyroid glands removed from taking this medication. Finally after months of physical therapy for frozen shoulders I had to have surgery on my shoulder. When my hair began to fall out from the methotrexate I was now taking- That was it, I had to find a different solution.
I went to a naturopathic doctor and he put me on a blood type diet. Within a week my pain receded and I now take no medication. This transformation has not been easy. I cannot eat wheat, corn or dairy. This means nothing processed. I cook everything from scratch. It also means that I had to learn about a lot of new foods that I had never heard of before.
This is where spelt entered the picture. I love bread. Even though spelt is technically a wheat, it is an ancient cereal grain that has been unchanged over time. I eat it with no ill effects. I began making the bread and sharing it with family and friends and others noticed the improvement in the way they felt. No more bloating, reduction in inflammation and the next thing I knew Genevieve’s Kitchen LLC was born!
As I said initially- Spelt changed my life –
Spelt can change your life too!!!
