I have suspected gluten intolerance. For the past month I have felt terrible, after being prescribed anti-anxiety meds from my family doctor (Ha! What a joke), I went to my chiropractor. He feels my symptoms could be explained by a gluten intolerance. I was just told this last night and I am finding it VERY over whelming trying to find food without gluten. I currently have yet to eat today because I have nothing in my house that I can eat. I really hope going gluten free is going to take care of my symptoms. :(
My son is also going on a dairy free diet because he is going a lot of ear infections.
Luckily I shop at Trader Joe's and they label their food that is gluten and diary free, but still. This is not going to be easy in the least.

Gluten makes me bloat, have gas, pain, and a change in bowel movements. However. if I am careful to eliminate all gluten for about 5 days, I can eat some bread or dessert. Then I need to eliminate it again for several days.

I try to be gluten free. I was diagnosed with MS almost 4 years ago and after much reading find it to be the best diet for myself.

I have an Autoimmune disorder. Thought I might feel better if I stopped a few things like wheat, yeast and ate gluten free items instead. Really has helped with the weakness, GI distress. Thanks for your site.

I've been suffering from severly stiff & tight muscles and it has progressively gotten worse over the past year. After seeing many specialists, and having all sorts of tests conducted I happened to schedule an appointment with a new chiropractor. The chiropractor told me that my joints were very flexible due to the fact that my ligaments were too loose. Wheat can cause many auto-immune dysfunctions in the body & especially in women, and these symptoms can worsen over time. I've been wheat free ever since and continue to feel healthier by the day... not to mention I've had an easier time loosing weight! I've been blogging about my new diet & lifestyle http://wheatfreeadventurer.blogspot.com/ and it's been helping me stick to it!

was diagnosed with a wheat allergy, so some other grains are still available for me but I generally stay away from most grains and have substituted alternatives, point of note is that generally runs in familys' and some population groups are more inclined to be wheat/glutten suffers and recent Mayo study confirms what many of us suffers have believed is that some people are being treated for diseases when what they have is a life time of allergy reactions

I have eliminated gluten, but my body still has a hard to digesting other proteins and cooked foods.
