an update on Erin’s health…

Erin feeling better!

Erin feeling better!

It’s been awhile since I last posted to bring you up to date on Erin’s health.  At the end of last year we found out that she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and a herniated disk.  The neurologist put her on some meds and she had been getting some much needed relief.  Last month, Erin had the opportunity to speak to a group of ladies at a missions conference we attended. When she shared some of her health struggles with them, she was approached by no less than 5 women who had similar symptoms. In every case they went gluten free and almost all of their symptoms went away.  After much prayer and searching for gluten free products and recipes Erin was able to go gluten free almost three weeks ago.  We have been amazed as this has had a amazing impact/turn around Erin’s every day life.  Her energy levels are up, almost all of her neuropathy is gone, and just feels better in general.  Yesterday, she had her neurologist check up and the doctor was very pleased with her progress.  He agreed that the gluten allergy is probably what caused her problem and told her to keep it up.  The doctor also said she could start decreasing her meds!   We are  praising God for Erin’s change in health and are excited that 2014 looks like it will be a much better year for the Owens family health wise!  Thank you for your prayers for Erin and our family!
