    The grains you list are all gluten free so they shouldn’t pose a problem. If the grains are eaten in highly refined, form they are not a good food and therefore should be consumed in a limited quantity. Millet or quinoa or buckwheat in its whole form should? be fine. If you are introducing them into your diet, do so one at a time and wait for a good 48 to 72 hours post-introduction to ensure you have no symptoms.
    I hope that helps. Let me know if you have more questions.

    I have been lactose intolerant for 10 years already and I believe I am also gluten sensitive. My question is: is it ok to eat quinoa, millet, buckweat and tapioca? must I only eat proteins and vegetables? I? read very different opinions about this, could you please let me know what yours is?
    Thank you very much for your interesting videos.

    Yes, gluten can be the cause of acne. The skin tends to reflect the health of the digestive system and as we? know, gluten certainly affects that.
    Let me know if I can be of assistance.

    Maybe the big wheat and corporate lobbyist in DC has something to do with influencing the way the medical industry? does or says. Wheat is a big way they design their food to make big profits. How often or how much money can a company make on a banana or an apple? It is what it is….live beautiful food that nature gives us.

    @mohsinuk2000 – it? certainly is related. One of the most common ways that gluten affects the body is through the nervous system & that includes such symptoms as depression & anxiety. We see a great deal of success in treating such symptoms through addressing food sensitivities such as gluten plus the secondary effects that gluten creates. Balancing hormones naturally also is an important tool.

    as they adulterate more and more foods , making it difficult to find something to eat. So many frozen and canned vegetables are now “flavored”. Pushing Gluten free “comfort” foods while on the other hand , adding more gluten to the rest. It seems like I just woke up on the wrong planet.?
