The Toxic Truth About the Gluten Free Diet http://scdlifestyle.com/2012/04/the-toxic-truth-about-gluten-free-food-and-celiac-disease/#more-3490
I’ve just come across this and thought I’d better share. The fact is that it has been more than 4 years since I read Gut & Psychology Syndrome which helped me to understand why I was sick. It has been more than four years of forgetting, and I have never since felt as completely healthy and strong since. I have been wondering why, when I no longer have most of the FMS symptoms I still get occassional feelings of flare ups, and just a general feeling of fragility despite my lack of symptoms.
I’ll admit, I eat a lot of brown rice. Most of it is sprouted to eliminate the problems that this article talks about, but some of it (that contained in the brown rice crackers and the brown rice pasta) is not sprouted.
Alas, I think it is time for me to read the GAPS book again so that my choices can be made from an informed place again. For those who have not yet looked into the GAPS program, I highly recommend it. It was utterly integral to my healing process. For those who have, but are overwhelmed try reading a bit about the SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet). There is a lot more information and support for this one, but they are essentially the same, with only a few minor differences.
I picked up the GAPS Guide companion book a few years ago, and would like to recommend that one too. It goes a long way in the hand-holding department. For those utterly new to healthy eating, you might also like the Internal Bliss Cookbook. I got mine here: http://www.shop.gapsdiet.com/category.sc;jsessionid=9C6FB7D261DFF619D218B7A5483565ED.qscstrfrnt06?categoryId=7
I don’t get any kickbacks or anything like that. It’s just where I picked up my copies.
That being said, my real introduction to healing diets was from the Nourishing Traditions Cookbook and the Wild Fermentation book. Nourishing Traditions will teach you how to eat some of these dangerous foods in a way that renders them not just safe, but nutritious as well.
