Can You Feel Better on a Grain Free Diet?

by Lisa Bishop

Many of us today are finding we just do not feel well and food allergies may be to blame. Whether we are simply experiencing fatigue that does not seem to go away, GERDS, headaches or more serious illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes, it may be grains that are the culprit.

The number of people that are experiencing symptoms from food allergies associated with grain is growing each day. Many scientists believe that the Agricultural Revolution, which occurred about 10,000 years ago when farmers started planting and sowing grains, brought the first signs of grain intolerance and food allergies.

The Industrial Revolution

With the Industrial Revolution in the 1800’s, came the refining of grains and sugars and we began to see more prominent symptoms such as a rise in degenerative diseases and nutrient deficiencies.

Now, we find ourselves in the mist of a Fast Food Revolution that has taken these refined grains and combined them with unhealthy fats, refined sugars, salt and chemical additives and we are now seeing unnerving increases in obesity, in adults and children, and Type 2 Diabetes.

Don’t Feel Well?

If we are lucky enough to find a doctor that understands the impact a high grain diet can have on our overall health, we may now be facing the challenge of trying to lead a grain free and gluten free lifestyle.

While, at first, this may seem like a daunting task, we can easily educate ourselves and become our own healthcare advocates and reverse almost every symptom we are experiencing as a result of food allergies.

I have been on a gluten free diet for some time now and am still not feeling much better. I don’t like to eat meat either because it’s hard to digest. I am also allergic (IGe) to peanuts, brazil nuts, soy, yeast, milk, eggs and turkey.
Are there any, some, several or many recipes in your book that I would be able to eat?

p.s.
I have terrible GERD and can’t eat anything acidic or spicy as well.

CAN YOU TELL ME BEFORE I BUY THE BREAKFAST RECIPE BOOK IF FLAXSEED FLOUR IS INCLUDED? IT IS ON MY LIST OF DON’TS. ALSO IN READING “BREAKING THE VICIOUS CYCLE” QUINOA IS NOT ALLOWED. I AM CONFUSED.

Cholesterol is created in the body from our consumption of dietary fats, unhealthy fats and refined glucose.

There are a couple of recipes with flax seed in it, but not many. Quinoa is a great alternative to many folks who want to eat grain free, but some people don’t tolerate it. I don’t find this happens often, but it does happen. Each person reacts individually to foods, so you need to listen to what your body tells you. This can be hard, so you really need to pay attention to how you feel after you eat.

Thanks for the comment!
