Hi Mayflowers,
In case you don't know, I have also been following a pH diet as well, but the BTD combines and concerns itself with this as well, but I printed out a pH diet some time back, and according to it, it says that wheat  is acidic, which is also true for type A's as well, I believe. Which is why you are probably having difficulties with the wheat. I have a celiac disorder and found out since last year and have disposed of eating it since, even eating a small amount can cause a problem with me, I think I may have a enzyme deficiency, since I get at times this horrible nausea feeling, I feel that if I had some ipecac on hand, and took it and help me to vomit, I think I would just feel better, it would  help empty my stomach of some icky stuff.
I feel as tho my celiac disorder has been brought on by other things that I may have had going on, this did not happen overnight, it was a long time coming. I just have to learn to adjust my diet, & try to heal myself naturally which is the way to go. The body has a miracuously way of healing itself only if we allow itself to.
Well, take care and be in good health,
Fotprints.

I was diagnosed via stool test by Enterolab, about 4 years ago. It's truly been a blessing in disguise! I had been breaking out in rashes and hives and none of the 4 dermatologists were able to figure it out, they just kept prescribing creams....
I've been rash- and hives-free ever since.
Recently, I was on Synthroid for about four months and developed excruciating stomach aches. I said to my doc that I'll bet there's gluten in there. He checked into it and lo and behold Synthroid does contain gluten. At the same time he checked my blood for the anti-gliadin antibodies and they were slightly elevated, compared to the blood that was tested four months before...

Quoted from footprints
...
As to women that used to can their own foods many years ago, remember they canned using the old mason jars, and stored then in the pantry for later use for their meals. Many people back then also grew their own vegetation, fruits and veggies, so they were smart and practical, did not have to worry about the pesticdes and herbicides that were sprayed on them They also got their eggs from the chicken coups that the chicken laid. So, no wonder times were a lot easier and better back then, look what we have to deal with nowadays.
Everyone take care and stay well,

I am following a gluten AND yeast free diet...55 days today! I feel great...other than my chronic sinus/allergy/asthma condition. The diet has helped slightly.

Thanks for the link...great article...It is good gluten sensitivity has become main stream...but too late for some.

After I was diagnosed with celiac disease I read what I could find and realized it can be hereditary.  My mother had had digestive issues as long as I knew her and then developed severe rheumatoid arthritis.  I realized she probably had gluten problems and tried repeatedly to get her tested or at
least try a few days gluten free.  My family just thought I was nuts and she didn't want to put up with their giving her grief over listening to me.  She was never tested and died 07/07/07.

yet it is in our Swami lists, in some cases as beneficial food, are we forgetting individuality?

I have read that Italy tests all children for celiac disease before they enter school? Is that not true?

did not know any  chance of it, our italian diet is wheat based three times a day. I had a well known allergologist missing the celiac connection I was suggesting her in a good hospital  and in one of the better units!
So the diagnosis of celiac disease is suggested by very updated and smart pediatricians from 1968/70 and I was already 8/ 9 yeas old.  I was diagnosed by my second request 40 years old.  The founder of http://www.celiac.com waited 20 years to know better also in USA. Now in Italy there is a chance of gluten free meals in most of the schools canteens, but with ubiquitous corn for the benefit of O and B celiacs !  A rant should be in order...
Also some reastaurants are reaching out with celiac or wheat free recipes, not in the pastry or cakes matter.

Bongiorno Maria Giovanna,

I noticed we are the same blood type and secretor status. I, too, had my tonsils removed very young and have suffered with sinus allergies most of my life. My ND thinks I may have celiac disease due to a strong sensitivity to wheat and yeast. I have no other symptoms, though. Do you eat any form of yeast or foods containing yeast?

Grazi,
Cajun

Ok, now I am starting to wonder, for those of us who are not gluten sensitive, or at least do not know we are yet, what is the good of eating gluten food? what are the benefits?  why include them in our lists at all?

Hi Cajun, I do not  avoid yeast  and gluten free bread.  I eat seldom this but do not have problems with brewer yeast or any similar ingredient. Also candida has nothing to do with this kind of yeasts or mushrooms, which are not fungi. I must really avoid gluten plus dairy , this knock out  my immunological defenses and otitis, sinusitis and lot of inflamation. I avoid nearly at all common sugar  and all sweeteners if not a little of honey and black strap molass.  My eye allergy improved 99 % avoiding gluten and cow milk, not so my nose. However I do not need antibiotics and inhalation, just saline spray solution or neti pot. Hope it helps ! Maria Giovanna

I am still a little fuzzy, but I think the benefit from wheat may not be from gluten but WGA (wheat germ agglutinin). There is a lot on this lectin on this site, search WGA. I still don't have a clear picture of these two in my mind.

That's my guess on Dr. D's reasoning.

Wheat has some addictive properties. Chemical but probably also psychological. Also linked with sugar so sometimes hard to sort out. Cake, donuts, bread, etc. Pavlov, my mouth still waters.

I went looking for an answer to that question & in the process learnt some very interesting things re gluten sensitivity & celiac disease... Seems there is a skin version of celiacs Could it be that I have it??!! However I am certainly not going to subject myself to the horrors, pain & torment of going back on a gluten diet just to find out
http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-gluten.htm   Seems you need to read for the bottom of the page, up... as in starting from post 1 (naturally)
This link uncovers a fascinating theory that the original harvesting of wheat, as per Biblical instructions separated the chaff from the grain, which doesn't always happen these days... In light of that, it is therefore interesting to also note that celiacs is a fairly recent development... There could well be a connection eh?

in the allergies book, wheat gets bumped down, no worries.....

don t forget, not everyone is allergic.
to each their own issue.

Yeah, I think the question she was asking is "why eat a certain food" versus why you shouldn't eat a certain food- what is beneficial about it? Most would answer taste or texture, I would think.

But dopamine is powerful and a hidden payoff. The protein in wheat isn't digestable by anyone but it can get through the gut and attach in other parts of the body. I used to get a wheat brain fog. I am wondering if the sprouting changes the digestability of the protein or actually changes the form of the protein from the other threads.

I like to think about if something is difficult to give up for people-- why? We have so many alternatives. Why consistently pick one over the others? Still, that hardwiring is there for me even though I have overcome the behavior. Interesting.

Thank you for your reply, Maria!
I am pretty sure I am not suffering from celiac disease.
I do know that when I eat wheat OR yeast OR too much cheese....I cough/spit/blow nose, etc! Gagging and congestion follows, so.....No More Wheat or Yeast for me!
I am able to eat very small tastes of compliant cheese once a week....yeah!

Just realized myself how gluten intolerant I am. *pout* I've easily cut out meat, dairy and my other avoids. But for me... I just love bread. I worked as a bread baker one summer and really enjoyed it. I got 10 dollar worth of bread everyday to take home.

So now I need to actually cut out gluten from my diet completely and I need to start excising more. Instead of just calling a walk through the mall and grocery store exercise. lol I figure since I'm carrying my son the whole time it can be called a work out. haha

Lucky your aren't still working there??!! Free food is hard to resist - unless I know it is gonna do me a lot of harm - which come to think of it, is most free/cheap stuff

Christaalyssa, I hear you loud and clear! I LOVE good bread! That was the most difficult task for me on the BT diet! It is getting easier but I do still have temptations!  I just remind myself how congested/coughing/mucousy I get after eating it!
I think walking and carrying a child definitely constitutes exercise!

The sad thing is I have kept trying to fool myself and tell myself that a little wheat wouldn't hurt me. I've been buying some amazing gluten free pasta and switching a few of the bigger things, It's just the cutting it out completely that is the more difficult part of it. And it also doesn't help that I make amazing cookies, pastries and breads! It's my last big hurdle! But I'm doing it. I'm too stubborn not to.
