WHEAT: A Problem Food for Every Body
Copyright © 2006 Kelly Hayford, C.N.C.
Award-winning author, "If It's Not Food, Don't Eat It!"

Wheat is one of the most common food allergens that has long been 
associated with a host of symptoms. Regardless of whether or not 
you have a known or suspected allergy, sensitivity, or 
intolerance to wheat, it is wise for everyone to limit or avoid 
this staple grain altogether for several reasons. 

1 ~ We eat way too much wheat in this country. For many it is the 
only grain they ever eat. This is problematic because it means 
missing out on the many nutrients that other grains have to 
offer. In addition, eating the same foods over and over can tax 
the system, deplete specific enzymes, and lead to intolerances 
down the road. 

2 ~ Unless you are the rare person who cooks up bowls of wheat 
berries, which is its whole grain form, all of the wheat being 
served up in this country is processed - the overwhelming 
majority of which, is highly processed into white refined flour. 

White refined flour and the many products made from it - pasta, 
breads, cereals, pastries, cookies and more - are devoid of most 
vital nutrients and fiber. These foods are so devitalized they 
are actually anti-nutrients that deplete the body of vitamins, 
minerals, and enzymes in order to process them. 

Unfortunately, even many of the products labeled "whole wheat" 
are themselves highly processed, and also frequently contain 
white refined flour and refined sugars as well. Check the label! 

3 ~ Wheat in any form, processed or not, is challenging to digest 
and eliminate due to its high gluten content. Remember as a child 
mixing flour and water to make glue? It is gluten that gave this 
mixture its sticky, glue-like consistency. 

Gluten is a mixture of gum-like, water-insoluble plant proteins 
found in many grains, and wheat has the highest gluten content of 
them all. Great stuff for binding paper maché, not so good for 
the intestines - or any other part of the digestive and 
eliminative tract, for that matter. 

4 ~ Because it is so difficult to digest and eliminate, wheat is 
a notorious mucous-producer and inflammatory agent known to cause 
or contribute to a host of dis-eases, including: arthritis, sinus 
problems, constipation, diarrhea, bowel disorders, fatigue, yeast 
infections, liver & gallbladder congestion, mental disorders, 
insomnia, and suppressed immune function. In Chinese medicine 
wheat is considered one of the primary causes of depression. 

Regardless of whether or not you are suffering from these or any 
other symptoms, everyone can benefit from limiting wheat in their 
diet or going completely wheat-free. Try it and see! 

Today it is easier than ever before to go wheat-free or at least 
cut down on your intake. There is an array of wheat-free and 
gluten-free products now available on the market. Choose from: 


rice - wild, brown, basmati, jasmine, etc. 

When you enjoy these whole grain alternatives, you will not only 
be giving your system a break from wheat and white refined flour, 
but you will also be giving your body more of the beneficial 
nutrients and fiber it so desperately needs. 

All-in-all, losing some of the wheat can mean regaining some of 
your health & energy!
