What Is On My Mind Today?


Wheat and gluten foods can cause a child a very unhappy childhood, no one wants to see a child not feeling well. Many children experience early signs of emotional health problems which many physician’s don’t take seriously enough, when a physician informs you there is nothing wrong with your child you believe them. Many children with behavior problems should be tested for gluten intolerance, gluten foods causes inflammation which in children often is on the inside and not on the outside. Gluten causes silent damage which often does not effect children until they are much older with obvious physical symptoms unless they have the disease Celiac Disease.  Many children with this issue experiences problems in school, often teachers label these children as not working up to their potential. Whenever a school or teacher suggests this about your child, the first thing I recommend is have them checked for autoimmune disease especially sensitivity to gluten?

  1. Gluten intolerance and celiac are huge today. The type of wheat that is available today looks and acts nothing like the type of wheat used back in the day. I enjoyed your lists of gluten containing foods. That is a huge list! I will share it with my friends going gluten free.

    1. Thank You

      I appreciate your comment and you sharing my article with your gluten-free friends, it is a good list of foods to get someone on the right start of a gluten-free diet.


  2. Great info u have here! I’ve been wondering lately if my daughter has any food allergies or allergies in general. Are there any tests that can confirm gluten sensitivity? Or is it something parents need to find out through trial and error?

    Some of the symptoms seem normal so how do you tell if its gluten causing the issue?

    1. Thank You

      The best strategy is to do an elimination diet, there is a link for books for this type of diet in the article you just read.


  3. Good information and charting for ease of use. Gluten Free is the new catch-phrase and appears everywhere these days, but can it completely be trusted? Thankfully I haven’t had many issues myself, but I generally steer clear from Gluten loaded foods. I do have a daughter and friend with Gluten intolerance issues, and it seems that, when you start looking, everything contains Gluten other than the items that label Gluten free.
    Thanks for the info!

    1. Thank You

      Basically when you go back to eating the old fashion foods you will experience a gluten-free diet, fresh produce and grass-fed meat is the key to living a healthier lifestyle
