Hi! I'm Gina Sandora, native "Maine-ah" and Baker at AllerGeena Gluten Free Baked Goods.
Here's my story of recovery.
My lucky day happened in early 1996. I had a consultation with Dr. Priscilla Skerry, N.D. (Naturopathic Doctor). she changed my life.
Dr. Skerry, had an education and a treatment designed just for me. Seven years earlier, I had been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I was told there were only pain management treatments for my illness.
Wow! after 7 years of constant pain and debilitation, I finally met someone who could show me how to feel well again.
I had to make some big changes.....None of it was easy, but all of it was worth it. Following doctors' orders and removing gluten from my diet changed everything for me. I will be forever grateful to my doctor and I've got to say I feel really lucky.
Changes: The biggest change was to completely remove gluten from my diet. I say biggest, because a "forever diet" is a BIG change, and you wouldn't believe how many food items contain gluten.
Good things happen with change. I started out building a food allergy menu consulting business. Later on, I learned there was a demand for better gluten free bread products.
That sparked an idea! I have always loved to bake. My husband suggested that I sell my bread... and the rest is in the dough.
