Hello fellow temple-lovers,

I have noticed that when I omit gluten and dairy from my diet, I do not crave alcoholic beverages, such as wine, beer, and distilled liquor. I could probably Google it, however, I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if there is a clinical correlation.

Please share!  

Melissa

Yes my cravings have diminished all around since going off wheat strictly the last few months.

One person I discussed wheat with, an A, spoke of wheat sitting and fermenting in the gut.  The Dr. administered a breath analyzer test and registered very high, as if there had been heavy drinking.  Once the wheat was removed from the diet, it mimicked a person stopping drinking.

certain dairy is in fact good for you.....find out which

dairy contains your antigen sugar, so give that a thought

Whoa!

Thanks Sahara!

I looked it up and there is direct correlation between gluten and alcohol cravings/ alcoholism.

I just thought it was funny while I was in Vegas that I really didn't crave alcoholic beverages. Then, the night of the wedding - Saturday - I ate cake (I hate to blame it on friends, but they know how much I adore cake - my "favorite food group," but they kept saying, "It's a wedding...it's your best friend...you have to live...) so I ate the gluten and dairy bomb, which I did not finish. I woke up the next morning and craved the Champagne that I served my friend when she came to gather her belongings, and served myself some with cranberry juice (how compliant - NOT) instead of orange juice (it makes me have to urinate too much - TMI, yes, but true.)

You know, Lola, I agree. The naturopath that I started seeing has asked me to eliminate both dairy and gluten, which is hard. I feel the same way. The more I think of it, I need to change practitioners. I cannot wait to see the SWAMI results.

Do you think it is best to wait for the secretor status results? This makes a big difference, right?

I will be surprised if I am a secretor because of all of the problems I have had and the medical enigma I have been.

Thanks Lola!

When taken in excess, they all trigger hypoglycemia (hence, craving)

I've often thought about this connection, but never bothered to check if anyone else has!
In certain parts of the UK there is a what I can only guess a correlation between alcohol addiction and predominance of blood type O.......... also big bread eaters.

Hi Joyce,

Can't remember where now, probably in LRFYT book most probably, where Peter was stressing on "Type O involvement in substance abuse".. Could the excuse be the dopamine levels

Sympathise, or empathise.. An organism developed (evolved?) to survive in paleolithic conditions trying to dwell in the "modern" world.. One thing I see, O's are survivors

No offense to "higher models" but, it's good to be an O  

Cheers,
Yaman

PS: be aware of the fine line between the "medicine" and the "poison"

I believe there is a definite link. I give my success to abstinence to the btd diet. If rehab centers would catch on to this, I think the success rate would go way up. I have witnessed at AA meetings that people have traded their alcohol addiction for sweets. I was told that the success rat at the center I attended was 1 in 20. Pretty sad. Since I have been getting into the Halloween treats, I have been craving wine again but did not give in to it. I am back on track again.

My cheat meal a year ago was pizza with wine weekly.  Once I stopped the wheat I dropped the alcohol too.  Have had less than half a dozen glasses plus one bottle in 6 months.

Funny, but I have Type B blood. I just noticed that once I had a few bites of red velvet cake with buttercream frosting (I promise - I couldn't even force myself to eat more,) the next day, I was more than happy to guzzle a cranberry mimosa (or two) with my newlywed friend. I actually craved it. I noticed that the other days, I did not. It was one of those, "Oh...time to drink beer again?" Haha... ;o)

I notice that when I stop drinking alcohol, I also stop craving grains...as much as the other way around. I'm not gluten intolerant, so I do eat some grains, but not much. Processed grains (flours) are the most difficult on my system, so I try to stick with whole grains as much as possible. I've never made the association with dairy, though I don't eat that much of it as it is...


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

It probably wasn't the dairy...I think I was just gun-ho on the no dairy/no gluten thing that the naturopath prescribed me. However, I think it was the gluten that did it. I am fine with cheeses, kefir, ad the like; cow's milk - not so much. I am a big fan of the school that says, "We are the only mammals that drink another mammal's milk." This is not to say that we are not intelligent for doing this, just that cow's milk is designed for a calf...and calves get big rather quickly. I remember as a kid spilling my glasses of milk at day care until my mom lied and said I was allergic. It repelled me. Still does...unless it is in a foamy cappuccino.

It is very much my "ritual" to come home from work and pour a glass of wine or open a beer and just unwind, not really reflecting on the day. When I have a box of wine on my nightstand, we have a problem.
