The nasty business of wheat re-exposure

Steve’s wife, Jenny, shared these photos of her husband feeling well off all wheat and grains, then after a wheat exposure: “Went to a party last night. Thought he could have pizza since he’s looked so good for so long. This is him before and after.” Of course, Steve will survive after enduring some misery and perhaps embarrassment. But the whole business of re-exposure to wheat and related grains can be quite nasty. Among the most common wheat/grain re-exposure reactions are: Abdominal distress–bloating, diarrhea, discomfort, even severe acute pain Joint pain–in fingers and wrists, as well as large joints Skin rash–particularly if you had some form of rash, such as seborrhea, rosacea, eczema, or psoriasis during prior grain-consuming days Mental/emotional effects–anger, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, depression, restlessness/restless legs, insomnia/disrupted sleep, impulsive behaviors If you obtained relief from an autoimmune or neurological condition after several months of the Wheat Belly lifestyle (and the Wheat Belly Total Health additional strategies), wheat/grain re-exposure can re-activate your disease. One of my most memorable examples: I was seeing a 52-year old male businessman for mild coronary disease prevention a few years ago. As he had the typical lowish HDL, highish triglycerides, and plenty of small LDL particles underlying his coronary disease, I advised him to eliminate all wheat/grains, as well as add vitamin...

Authors: Dome P, Faludi G Abstract Main indications of antidepressants (ADs) as major depressive disorder (MDD) and different kinds of anxiety disorders are quite prevalent during pregnancy and the postpartum period. Due to the possible hazards of in utero and breast milk exposition of ADs, both psychiatrists and mothers frequently have concerns about the use of ADs during the periods of pregnancy and breastfeeding. However, we should also bear in mind that affective disorders left untreated during these periods are also associated with health risks for the mother and the baby as well. Accordingly, the treatment of...

Authors: Rihmer Z, Dome P, Gonda X, Rihmer A, Belteczki Z Abstract The authors tested the clinical applicability of a self-developed, 6-item, clinician-rated questionnaire evaluating suicide risk in suicidal and non-suicidal psychiatric inpatients and healthy controls. Results have shown that the questionnaires able to detect marked suicide risk in psychiatric inpatients with a high sensitivity and specificity which indicates its usefulness and good applicability in clinical practice.

Authors: van Dalfsen JH, Markus CR Abstract The short (S) allele of a functional polymorphism (5-HTTLPR) within the promoter region of the serotonin transporter gene (SLC6A4) is found to predispose the risk for stress-related affective disorders relative to the long (L) allele. Evidence suggests that elevated stress reactivity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis might underlie this association although there is little understanding about the origin of inconsistent findings. Since inadequate sleep is commonly known to promote HPA stress reactivity, it might well play an important modulating role. The pr...

Authors: Pendharkar AV, Shahin MN, Cavallo C, Zhao X, Ho AL, Sussman ES, Grant GA Abstract Craniosynostosis (CS) is defined as the premature fusion of one or more calvarial sutures. This carries several consequences, including abnormal/asymmetric cranial vault development, increased intracranial pressure, compromised neurocognitive development, and craniofacial deformity. Definitive management is surgical with the goal of protecting cerebral development by re-establishing normal cranial vault expansion and correcting cosmetic deformity. In today's practice, CS surgery has advanced radically from simple craniectomie...

CONCLUSIONS: To the best of our knowledge, the present review is the first to specifically explore the relationship between social cognition and social functioning in patients with BD. This exploration is of interest, as it enhances current understanding of this disorder and, by so doing, should improve patient outcomes. PMID: 29787961 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: History of ELM as well as the common sequelae, BPD and MDD, pose risks for child abuse. Our findings suggest improvement of emotion regulation as a potential target for intervention programs. These programs should also aim at non-substantiated cases because even an elevated abuse potential affected child mental health.Declaration of interestNone.
