If you’ve considered going gluten free then this week’s podcast is a must. Rebecca is joined by Heather Jacobsen from Stuffed Pepper to talk all about how, and why, you might decide to go gluten free. They chat about how Heather’s own journey through various childhood conditions, abdominal surgery and an autoimmune condition has led her to a gluten free life. Heather talks about how gluten sensitivity manifests itself, the symptoms and how to manage changing your diet for optimum gut healing. Rebecca and Heather also look at how stress can be a huge part of the puzzle when unravelling your own health issues and how to begin tackling this.
