    I cured my troubles by eliminating one single food: olive oil. You know, the “healthy” oil? Turns out I’m allergic, and olive oil is nearly everywhere in foods these days because people think it’s good for you. Well, it’s not good for me. Haven’t had any trouble in over, gosh, a decade. You might be blaming the gluten in your noodles or the tomatoes, but actually, like me, it could be the olive oil. Dip a Popsicle stick in some of it and scratch your arm. If it welts up, you’ve got your culprit.

Gluten was one of the first things my doctor had me cut out to see if it would help with my issues, and I know tomatoes are a No-No for my tummy. I am glad to see you’ve found a little relief by cutting out certain things.
