I posted the below to the SCI group of paralysed people I’m in –
So I read a fair bit about being wheat and dairy intolerant.
I have tried a lactose and gluten free diet for a month.
I must STRESS that pre injury I definitely appeared to have no issues with either food type ( though dairy did seem to make my hay fever worse )
Over the month i have had an elimination of the bloating I have had for 2 years and definitely less spasms.
My skin is also a lot smoother and I feel happier too?
2 days ago I had 2 ice creams (dairy ) and a beer ( wheat ).
2 hours later my stomach swelled up and my spasms were off the scale.
Folks, I think the evidence is pretty clear. Post injury we are far more susceptible to this crap.
Try it – you have to be disciplined but compared to losing the ability to move, who really gives a flying fuck about drinking milk products and beer …?
BIG shout out to Ken Curtis for his guidance.
