Both myself and my daughter are sensitive to wheat and have found avoiding decreases inflammation symptoms. Will the green smoothie diet over time reverse sensitivity?
Well, my dear, there IS no “green smoothie diet.” (I did write a book by that name. Because my publisher forced it. Because people buy diet books.)
But green smoothies are just ONE really easy way to get tons of raw, organic plant foods in the diet. And THAT is the secret sauce. That is the holy grail, if there is one, or the fountain of youth. LOTS, and I mean LOTS, of greens, vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
These are the anti-inflammatory foods. The disease preventative foods. Probably your wheat sensitivity is related to eating white-flour foods, sprayed with Roundup (glyphosate), multiple times a day for many years. If we ate grain like ancient Man did….in the Fall/Winter, when our body produced more amylase to break it down, and we sprouted/soaked it, and we ate it whole (not processed, with the bran/germ stripped out), we wouldn’t likely have a reaction.
So, if you heal your gut (and may I HIGHLY recommend Robyn’s 12 Steps to Whole Foods course, go directly to STEP 8 to heal your gut!)....you will likely see symptoms and gut reactivity disappearing.
