I've been avoiding wheat & dairy productts for years. Internal bleeding only got better when I stopped eating rice. Almonds & other nuts are painful. My food list is getting smaller. Any ideas

My eyes swell even after omiting gluten and wheat, i ate rice that day, could this be the cause

Intolerance to rice can happen, but you need to take care not to reduce the variety you eat too much.

Try eating as wide a variety of different foods as possible and in different combinations every day.

Keep a notebook of exactly what you eat and what symptoms you get. That might help track doen the problem.

I have just had the results of a test for food intolerance by York Test.
I am told I should avoid gluten, wheat, millet rice, buckwheat & corn, but that there was no reaction to barley, oats & rye.

Can anyone explain this as I know gluten is in these three grain, although I understand oats can sometimes be tolerated by coeliacs.

Gluten is present in barley and rye, and in a slightly different form in oats.

Buckwheat comes from the rhubarb family, no relation to the grass seeds at all.- and is a little bit indigestible for everyone.

A little while ago the consumers association sent identical biological samples to be tested by a number of 'consumer' intolerance laboratories.( but sent in by several different people, so the laboratories didn't knoww they were the same ) They did not come back with the same allergies identified.

Be guided by your own medical doctor and eat a wide variety of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Why don't you use spelt flour? Spelt is the ancient wheat and I tolerate it just fine. It takes a bit of getting used to as you have to start to make your own bread and pasta/pizza, but basically just use that instead of other flour.

i have been reading up on food combining and read somewhere about being able to eat food that you couldnt eat before, now i cant find it... anyways all the help i can get would be greatly apreciated. about 10 years ago i started having digestive probs, couldnt eat pork lamb fatty foods then 6 years ago when i was 31 i was diagnosed with bowel cancer did radiation, surgery and chemo. now every year the list of foods i find i cant eat gets longer so far it is. pork lamb shellfish wheat soya oats all citrus fruits anything with heavy fat like cream mayo, some addatives. one of my biggest problems is living in a country where i cant really get diffrent types of grain, its brown or white flour and selection on foods isnt so great so i dont have much choice. if i follow food combining would my symptoms ease (constant discomfort, bloating, diarrhoea, fatigue) and should i try re introducing foods like oranges, berries.

Re: Intolerance to grains and rice: from Peter on 2007-03-05

You should discuss the possibility of coeliac condition, or gluten-intolerance with your doctor. Damage to the digestive system caused by the gluten can result in the other symptoms that you describe.

Another possibility is 'leaky gut syndrome' where your digestive system starts to absorb molecules that haven't been fully digested, and again the resulting inflamation causes further damage to the gut. One possible indicator of this condition is where you can taste these food molecules in your own saliva several hours after eating a meal - particularly with strongly flavoured cheese. Avoid all fine flour - eat rice rather than rice flour, avoid anything made with a fine flour. Slowing down the process of digestion in this way may ease symptoms.
