This is where we talk about self-care, reviews, stories and other ideas that could impact your life when you have food sensitivities.
Holistic health involves every aspect of your life — not just food. And sometimes a change in perspective, a connection to a common struggle, or even a good belly laugh can feed you in a way that a recipe can't.
