If you suffer from bloating, chronic headaches, general fatigue, diarrhea, eczema or a number of other symptoms, you may have a food allergy or intolerance. One of the most common food allergies or intolerances is a wheat allergy. Unfortunately for someone who is wheat intolerant, wheat is found in many foods. Food manufacturers use it as a cheap substitute for a lot of more expensive substances. The good news is that a wheat-free diet can help you to fight all of those symptoms.
It is also possible that you may simply have mild wheat intolerance. In fact, many people eat so much wheat that their bodies start to reject it a bit. That is why, even though wheat is said to be quite healthy, many people wind up with wheat intolerance. If you sometimes get dizzy, nauseated, sneeze for no apparent reason or find yourself with unexplained aches and pains then your body might be rejecting wheat slightly, without you even realizing it. The majority of people often dismiss such symptoms, thinking that they have a mild cold, worked too hard that day or are simply over-tired. If you are wheat intolerant, though, a wheat-free diet can help you to alleviate those symptoms, if, unlike most people, you can figure out that wheat processing is the actual problem.
On the other hand, you may have a full-blown allergy to wheat. If you are experiencing severe chronic headaches, eczema, psoriasis or any other, more intense, symptoms, your body may be completely rejecting all wheat products.
A Wheat free diet will make you feel better!
In either case, a wheat-free diet will make you feel quite a bit better. However, once you go on a wheat-free diet, you may not be able to go back. Sometimes, if you have a mild intolerance, you might be able to go back to eating wheat eventually, but it is not likely. If you have a full allergy to wheat, however, there is no way you can go back. Your body simply will not allow you to reintroduce wheat products. If you do decide to go on the diet, be sure to consult a professional for advice on reading food labels for problem substances. Many items on food labels are directly related to wheat.
Some new studies are also indicating a direct link between wheat and dyslexia, and possibly other medical conditions. These studies showed that children with dyslexia, after going on a wheat-free diet, have suddenly improved their grades, paid better attention in school and, in general, became more alert and able to process information better.
Your other symptoms with a wheat allergy can include cramping, bloating, irritable bowel, unexplained cold like symptoms or headaches. No matter what your symptoms are, it is always best to consult an expert. Once you know that wheat is indeed your problem, you can decide whether the wheat free diet is the right choice for you. You should weigh your options carefully before jumping straight in.
