I have a client who has dairy, wheat and rice intolerance. I would appreciate it if you could send me any nutrition advice to point my client in the right direction.
There are degrees to these intolerances and sensitivities to these grains. It is thought that it is the "protein" factions in these foods that cause the intolerance. I certainly would recommend good histological testing to be sure it is a factor. As you may know, food insensitivities or allergies are expressed when the immune system is OVERwhelmed so it is a "hyperimmune response." Therefore, the best treatment begins when the person can begin to eliminate these items and lower the toxic load on the immune system, which also means looking at the environment for toxins (i.e., dust, pollution, smoking and what other health behaviors might be adding stress to the immune system such as lack of sleep, drinking excess alcohol or caffeinated beverages, too much saturated fat or sugar). As you can see, the best way to look at dietary difficulties is from the immune system perspective to get a total picture of WHY the body is responding to the foods. The following are two good web sites that are very comprehensive in this area: www.foodallergy.org and www.celiac.com.
