Lots Of Gluten Vs A Tiny Bit Of Gluten

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

After being gluten-free for more than 3 years I did a mini gluten challenge before an endoscopy. I already had diarrhea and was thinking maybe I'd been glutening myself with blue cheese for about 4 months. I only had a week's notice, so I sort of threw myself into it. I half thought it might kill me, but in fact it wasn't too bad. I was glad to be done with it by the end of the week, but in some ways I actually felt better, like the relief of giving in to an addiction.

I've read other people saying big doses of gluten are less painful than small doses. I never thought that would be true for me, but it was.

I wondered what theories you might have as to why this might happen.

Thanks for any ideas,

Matilda

Gluten fits nicely into opiate receptor sites in the brain. The more that get in, the better you feel (temporarily).
