AllerGeena Gluten Free Baked Goods
Gluten Free ~ Lucky Me!
AllerGeena's bakery business name is word play.
My name is Gina
and I have a lot of allergies.
(I crack myself up)
"Gluten Free ~ Lucky Me."
Is our company slogan
but it really means so much more.
Before I changed my diet to gluten-free, I had fibromyalgia.
I spent 7 years of my life trying to find a way to feel like myself again.
Fibromyalgia is a painful, frustrating, life altering illness.
Every day, I woke to constant pain, everywhere, head to toe pain.
Come on....I thought to myself... this can't be my life...
I tried all things medical, natural, mystical and a bit weird just to feel better.
Nothing worked, not even a little break from pain,
Until finally, I learned that gluten was a common dietary irritant.
The results of my medically supervised diet were amazing.
I told everyone what I was doing and how it changed my life.
In fact, you couldn't shut me up about it for a good year or so...
(Still can't...oh well)
It took about 4 months to feel real results,
and that's a long time to wait for relief,
but it worked, and I have never felt better.
I'm glad that I learned how to feel well again...I feel pretty lucky.
I'm glad I have this bakery of mine,...it's my way of doing and feeling my best.
Truly a labor of love.
