The gluten-free dietary wisdom has been circulating regarding the omission of wheat (contains gluten protein) and dairy products from a normal balanced regimen. While nobody is sure about dairy, since it’s banning is applicable to the lactose intolerant, wheat is definitely more of an irritant and allergen. 

10,000 years ago when mankind lived in tribes and ate natural foods, wheat was not available. Since the Agricultural Revolution had not begun its march to modernity, hunt meats, fruits and vegetables were the only foods that made up the diets of our ancestors. And for 99% of mankind’s history on the planet, this was the diet that was followed. 

It was only with the arrival of civilization and especially industrial times that the hundreds of unnatural and processed foods hit the supermarket shelves. And they of course caused a litany of diseases from IBS to Fibromyalgia and Multiple Sclerosis. 

One of the diseases you find today is Celiac Disease. Although it is dormant in 85% of the population, in the small percentage where it manifests itself, a range of symptoms appear which can only be controlled via gluten-free diets. A gluten-free diet is the only medically accepted treatment for celiac disease.

Skin irritations, diarrhea, bloating, extreme fatigue and a wearing away of the lining of the intestines takes place due to the consumption of wheat, rye, barley and processed foods such as sausages. 

The problem is that the majority of manmade foods contain wheat in some form. Only such foods that come straight from the bosom of Mother Nature such as fruits and vegetables or animal flesh are gluten-free. 

While potatoes and rice are gluten free, bread, oatmeal and cereals are full of the irritant. The solution seems to be a Paleo-style diet where you have to learn to read labels as well. 

Even a speck of wheat left on a dish can cause a reaction, therefore care is very important. And avoid all processed meats since they have wheat in the form of filler inside them. Try and eat (gluten-free diets) whole foods and remember: Nature is never wrong!
