Congestion And Gluten Intollerance

Recommended Posts

i have been monitoring, cooking , and baking gluten free for my son for the past year with good results. i am trying to find out just how the gluten/congestion thing happens. i've read and loved Against the Grain. that too doesn't really explain the connection.

my son does not have celiac but gluten seems to swell his nasal passages (snoring, sore throats, re-current strep, ear infections) but how???? is it inflamation?

any help & info would be appreciated. thanks so much.

I'm not sure why no one has replied to this..maybe you got your answer on another thread?? But just in case, I'll throw in my opinion for you.

Every person reacts to gluten differently. I have uncontrollable body spasms, pass out and then have terrible diarrhea...why??? Who knows??? That is my body's reaction to the invader...Your son's reaction is to become congested, other people get headaches, brain fog, numbness, stomach pain, joint pain....you name it and just about everyone has a different reaction. Again, the question is why? Good question...

whole family gluten free

If it's not made in a dedicated gluten free environment, it's NOT gluten free...it's "gluten not intentionally added!!!"
