Acid reflux gone, headaches gone, most of my irritability gone, anxiety pretty much gone, TOM pain GONE, extreme tiredness gone- these are just the things I noticed because they were so bad, would wake up in the middle of the night throwing up acid, headaches were almost an every day event, had to take naps everyday because I was so tired, TOM was so painful, this is less than a month of being wheat free, I am sure there is other things that have happened that I just haven't noticed yet, amazing stuff right there

Besides some of the above, no more hypoglycemia. The shakes, weakness and overwhelming feeling of hunger are gone. I now experience normal hunger. I would check my BG when I felt those symptoms and it would run in the 60s-70s. It was such an awful feeling.

We are PRETTY much wheat-free, and what little we do eat is ALMOST always homemade goods done with sprouted/dehydrated/ground hard red winter wheat.

I do much better with very few wheat products. Otherwise I get a poochy belly. Which is aggravated by being post-menopause.

We WAY overdid during the holidays so am now paying the price by being on induction (which is really no hardship at all, I love eating this way!) but will probably add our sprouted wheat bread back in at some point.

Yep thats Penny the dog finishing up the ice cream in the house right before we both went wheat free. She has lost 15 lbs just going wheat free. She needs to lose some more but she will get there too. And she jumps and runs better doesnt have a problem getting up on her ottoman throne in the living room or getting in the truck. She is only 5 but was walking and moving like she was 12. Dont give her an aspirin once in a while anymore when having a hard time. Oh and her weird wheeze like an athsma attack that would happen once in a while has never come back either. That wheat was making her old before her time.

She could probably list more but her typing is atrocious

Edited to add we went wheat free May 29th last year and yes we are both still wheat free. We have both had a bite of pizza with the crust and the mouth feel was great but after that i pulled the toppings off and ate them. And that night for the first time ever she got in the garbage and stole pizza crust. She is a true addict, one bite and she cant stop.

My youngest and I went wheat free after a detox showed she was gluten sensitive. We always thought it was dairy. She has had issues since she was born. But I had no idea then what was going on. I came on board fully after reading Dr. Davis's Wheat Belly. More so now that I'm reading Dr. Perlmutter's Grain Brain.

I am convinced no one should eat it. It is doing damage even if it isn't outwardly manifested. Thanks for bumping this. It's great to hear how it's helped other people.

So cute.... does Ice Cream have wheat in it???

Yes, thinking back.... we had a dog that took seizures...... and I ask myself (now) if it could have been the grain in the dog food He eventually had to be put down because they got so horrible and meds would not help. Also had a stray for about a year that developed a constant cough that could never be diagnosed.... just got so bad she had to be put down.... Now I wonder...and feel really, really bad. But the two I have now have GRAIN FREE.....

I had a dog that developed some dementia and would whine, pant and pace a good deal of the night. It was pretty awful for us all. I eventually took her off all processed dog food (she use to eat kibble Iams) and she got 90% better. In fact, she began to sleep like a log. Doing that gave her another couple of good years. She was 16 1/2 when she died this past April.

My other dog got the benefits of this need to change the diet and her uncontrolled diarrhea has been a thing of the past since.

We make our own ice cream now, the DD13 usually makes it and its amazing, got an ice cream maker 25 minutes done and no crap in the ice cream. Yes that ice cream in the pic had wheat, went wheat free right after that.

DD and DH are about 90% wheat free, it was funny because about 2 months in I was still serving them wheat crap from the freezer trying to use it up and get it outta the house and DD turned to me one night and says you arent going to eat that crap but your going to make me eat it? I couldnt even speak, had to leave the kitchen sheepishly, head hanging in shame, she really got me good. Had no idea she had really been listening to me about wheat.

DH- his severe mind fog and memory problems have been immensely helped. Short term memory issues wow what a difference. They both sneak off to eat a burger with a bun once in a while. But its made a huge difference for them too.

Hi
Its the one that came in the booklet with the cuisinart machine. Of course I have changed it to fit my needs

1 1/2 cups almond milk- recipe calls for whole milk but I use almond unsweetened
1 1/8 cups sugar- but I use a mix of toranis sugar free different flavors and whatever sugar substitute I have on hand finishing up some splenda before i completely change over
3 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 tbls Vanilla extract or real vanilla yum!

thats it mix it up and pour in machine wait 20-25 minutes its done. We have also made sorbets- delicious. Using the toranis we can create whatever flavor we want and adjust the strength of flavor.

I found out I had a wheat allergy, so a lot of things improved after my diagnosis and thus removing wheat (and now all grains and legumes) from my diet:

- eczema cleared up
- hayfever like symptoms cleared up
- no more blocked nose in the morning when I wake up
- no more bowel problems
- no more acid reflux
- more energy and clearer thinking

What type of blood test would you take to see if you have a wheat sensitivity?

I am curious what your dog ate when you stopped the iams. That's what we feed ours as well and he is also getting old before his time and he sheds like crazy. I have started giving him an egg with his food most nights and he loves fish oil capsules!

I'm not the poster you were asking - but I was feeding mine Nature's Recipe grain free. It has pumpkin and sweet potatoes along with the meat. Her energy level went up and it seemed to help with her arthritis. Unfortunately I had to switch her off of that and onto a special diet due to urinary issues - but she seemed like a different dog once I switched her off of the grains.

I was feeding her meat and a tiny bit of veg. All cooked by me ... Mostly chicken. She also was getting bone broth 2x daily. It was interesting that she went from being 'picky' (would pass up meals regularly) to being a bottomless pit. She was enjoying her food! Towards the end, she became get very insistent when she thought it was time to eat. I would have to physically remove her from the fridge that she took advantage of when I opened the door.

Neither of my dogs can handle eggs. Both would get the runs every time.

I now give my current dog a salmon oil cap. daily.

This was me also. I had having major issues with pain in the hips, knees and feet. Within a week to 10 days...GONE. If I slip and have a piece of real bread or a simplie pie with a nice flaky flour crust. I'm in pain a couple of days. It just isn't worth it anymore!

I feed my dog a raw diet, and co-moderate several large groups that help people make the switch. If you ever want more information, let me know.

My sister feeds her dog raw (whole animal) as well and has seen drastic difference in her dog including no more chronic diarrhea and she had the dogs teeth cleaned a couple of years ago (one the diet was changed) and they are still perfect. It speaks for itself.

Thanks Ntombi and clackley. I will have to look into this more. Sounds interesting and I'm sure it would be better for him.
