Gluten Free is NOT IBS safe

Don’t get me wrong, not all Gluten free products do I consider bad for IBS but you really need to watch yourself. Especially if you have an allergy or intolerance to wheat and soy (and other things).

Please note, I’m just a Computer nerd. I do not have any teaching in nutrition or health. I’m only going by my reaction and experience. If you have suspicions of any issues you need to be sure you get checked out by a doctor for anything else first.

As most of you already know, I’m on a Low-Fodmap diet. It’s a diet made to help people with stomach problems or IBS. I have suffered with severe stomach problems since the day I can remember. I have even had to undergo major surgery that had me feeling great for 9 months, but then the symptoms came back.

After dealing with depression because of it I decided to start taking matters into my own hand. I have been researching and testing and trying all new things when it comes to health, food, and exercise. I can tell you one thing, it has not been easy. I love food and a lot of the foods I love are not something I can tolerate anymore.

However, I have had some success. I have actually had good days that have lasted longer than 2-3 days but up to weeks! When I fail, it is hard, and the pain is severe. This will take time but over the past few months I feel like I have really started to learn a lot more about my body and foods.


Etude House

Honestly, I never use to be such a makeup junkie and now I just can’t stop buying it! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t wear tons of makeup, but I have fun changing up my look and trying new colors. Etude House is one of the makeup brands I have been having fun with. It is a popular Korean brand that actually has an English website – which is one reason it is the Korean brand I’m trying. You can get to it at

Anyway, I just wanted to give my little opinion on their products and my success with them. Over all, most has been positive so I will be buying from them again.

Now, before I get started I want to mention that Korean makeup is different than American. They love to go for the glowing and more subtle look. They are not about contouring or even a lot of eye makeup. I tend to prefer the way they do their makeup and – even though I don’t do it exactly how they do – I tend to do my makeup more like their style. Probably the only thing I don’t do is their love for the VERY bright lip colors. Don’t get me wrong, I think it looks lovely, but I’m not really brave enough to wear it like that unless it is for some event. I love my neutral lips lipsticks.
