Hi all, for many years I've suffered from the classic CFS symptoms and tried a lot dietary wise as probably most of you have, too. The only improvement I've noticed was when I went gluten-free and included a lot of fermented foods like homemade milk kefir and sauerkraut, kimchi etc. in my diet. I've felt much better but still had a lot of symptoms, simply not that severe as before. I wondered why and if the gluten had something to do with the improvement, this was when I read a popular book about wheat and a belly (hint, lol), this book not only deals with wheat and gluten but with grains in general. So I decided to go completely grain-free for a few weeks, just to try and see like I tried a myriad of other things before. And lo and behold, I was completely free of symptoms within 2-3 weeks, this was 4 months ago and I declare myself now officially in remission, lol. But I wonder why is this? The books I've read don't really give satisfactory explanations.Then I've stumbled across youtube videos of Tom O'Bryan who says grains in general contain gluten-like proteins called prolamines that cause leaky gut syndrome. I've looked for studies about prolamines but there is literally no research done about this topic. Has anybody heard about this or made similar experiences?
