Alison has been a life-long asthma sufferer and in her twenties her health began to decline. By her thirties she had such severe iron deficiency anemia that the doctors feared cancer. She was finally diagnosed with celiac disease, an autoimmune disease caused by proteins found in wheat, rye, and barley.
After Alison removed gluten from her diet, all her health problems disappeared and she was able to throw away her asthma inhaler. Her family has adopted her dietary changes and they also have reversed numerous physical ailments including autism.
In this interview Alison discusses her past health issues and the changes she experienced healing from celiac disease.
