This is Your Brain on Wheat

Wheat Belly

 

81huBv1o5ZLThe effect of wheat on the brain is more than just influence over mood, energy, and sleep. Actual brain damage is possible, as seen in cerebellar ataxia. but the cerebral cortex, the center of memory and higher thinking, the storehouse of you and your unique personality and memories, the brain’s “gray matter,” can also be pulled into the immune battle with wheat, resulting in enc3ephalopathy, or brain disease.

Gluten encephalopathy shows itself as migraine headaches and stroke-like symptoms, such as loss of control over one arm or leg, difficulty speaking, or visual difficulties. On MRI of the brain, there is characteristic evidence of damage surrounding blood vessels in cerebral tissue. Gluten encephalopathy will also show many of the same balance and coordination symptoms as those that occur with cerebellar ataxia.

  1. I was a chronic migraine suffer and was able to change my life, being free of a migraines for over five years now. This was achieved through dietary changes. There may well be others that are impacted by wheat but for me there is no evidence of this as I eat more whole grain wheat than 99% of people I ever met. Perhaps there is more impact with refined flours but some of the proposed impacts of this book are totally missing in my experience. Note that I also am 5 ft 10.5 inches weighing in at just under 170 lbs. I have never had a weight problem and did not ever have a wheat belly. This raises at best the question in my mind, when is the author right and when is he wrong?
