Before I jump into this article, I just want to articulate that going gluten-free isn't a choice for everyone. I do, however, strongly advocate to eliminate it from your diet for 3 weeks to see if you feel better and if you get any symptoms when you re-introduce. Many of us have unknown sensitivities and removing an allergen is a sure way of finding out. On the other hand, many people thrive eating gluten and need it to meet certain dietary needs. I completely support that decision as long as it comes from whole sources as I will outline below. But before, I talk about eating gluten, I want to discuss why I don't.
In the midst of winter many people start to feel the blues. They think it could be the passing of the holidays or the wind chill outside, but what many people don't know is that it could be your vitamin D levels! A doctor once told me that anyone above the Georgia line of states is Vitamin D deficient! That means most of Americans are lacking this crucial vitamin! What exactly is vitamin D? Well read on and I'll give you a brief explanation as well as advice for how to raise it so you can be back on your way to feeling good!
With winter break and the first semester coming to a close, I decided to write a second part about how to ease ourselves from the business of school. While my first post was about healthy study habits, this will take into consideration how to unwind healthily from work/school and realign our purposes. As a senior, I also feel that this post will be very relevant to my fellow senior friends who are struggling and getting anxious through the college process. Hope you enjoy it! Leave questions if you have any.
