May is National Celiac Awareness Month. As part of Gluten Free Society’s message of hope, and to help increase the awareness of the health detriments of gluten, we would like to share Jean’s story with you.
This women was taken around the proverbial medical block trying to find a real solution to her health problems. Multiple medications, frustration, and terrible health all caused by the wrong foods in her diet. If you know someone with psoriasis, restless legs, fibromyalgia, or chronic pain, you owe it to them to share this video testimony. It just might change their life forever!
Don’t Forget that it is Mother’s Day this weekend!
Do you have a positive story to share? Chime in below… Your story may help convince someone to better their life!

This sounds like tension myositis syndrome as theorized by Dr. John E. Sarno. That this patient feels better is a placebo effect that the patient attributes to physical causes of her pain.
This is great that this patient feels better, but this patient’s testimony has all indications of TMS. There is nothing physically wrong with her, and her pain is benign.
I know you will not agree, as you are a staunch advocate for gluten free diets, but believe me, this patient needs to be aware of the mind body connection as the source of her pain. As someone who had been gluten free for years, I developed the same exact symptoms as this patient and as thousands more do so.
Clearly, my gluten free diet was not the cure. It was only after many doctor visits, PT, pain mgmt, and chiro visits, ithat I later found out about TMS. Almost immediately, upon awareness of this tension syndrome, I felt so much better, my pain subsided, and I was able to sleep pain free.
Please inform patients about this–doctors have ignored this for far too long.
With all due respect Grace,
I find it hard that you can diagnose a patient based on a 3 minute video clip, while disregarding the fact that a change in her diet led to remission of her complaints. You are clearly focused on a label (TMS). Labels only serve to victimize people. Victimization only serves to enable disease, not to find or treat the cause.
I find your dismissal of Jean’s story insulting.
I have found that people not fighting a disease think they know all about the world of those who are fighting disease, be that disease imagined [yours] or real.
It is frustration, piled on top of frustration, to hear comments like this.
Because the pain seemed to be imaginary [in your head] does not mean it is true for all others. One size does not fit all, and therefore cannot be used to diagnose everyone.
Of course there is a mind/body/spirit connection, but watching a 3 minute video and making an assessment as to the validity of the Jean’s comments is, to start with, unfair.
All the best to you in health and life.
TMS is not imagined. Yes, it starts with the sub-conscious suppressing anger & anxiety, which results in actual, physical pain.
Once the recognition sets in about TMS, the pain starts reducing.
I think this what Grace is referring to.
