Hi! I'm Gina Sandora, owner of AllerGeena Gluten Free Baked Goods.
My Gluten Free Story of Recovery.
After 7 years of near constant pain, I finally met someone who could show me how to feel well again.
My lucky day happened in early 1996. I had a consultation with Dr. Priscilla Skerry, N.D. (Naturopathic Doctor).
Dr. Skerry designed a treatment and a nutritional education just for me, and together we changed my health and my life.
Seven years earlier, I had been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I had been told there were only pain management treatments for my illness, which is a lot like saying you'll learn to live with it.
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.
There were other food and diet challenges, plus lifestyle and life choices had to be made.
You see, Naturopathic medicine treats the mind, the body, and the soul. And you have to be willing to do the work. I will be forever grateful to my doctor and I feel very lucky.
Change is good and good things happen with change. I decided to create a food allergy menu consulting business. During this time, 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.
