There are a number of foods that seem to aggravate C. diff’s symptoms.
One of them is gluten, which is a sticky protein in grains like wheat, rye and barley.
These foods are eaten every day by most people, but they can cause all the same symptoms as C. diff itself.
When C. diff gets into the bowel it releases toxic chemicals that cause inflammation and damage to the intestine wall.
Well it turns out that gluten can also cause lots of inflammation in the intestine, and can result in the same or similar symptoms.
I’ve read that up to 80% of us have a genetic trait that makes us prone to have this reaction to gluten.
Furthermore, the reaction may also spread round the body like a fire, causing all manner of symptoms around the body – depression, fatigue, aches and pains, headaches, and others.
I eliminated gluten from my diet a long time ago, and I found my digestive system felt a lot better as a result, even before I got rid of C. diff.
There’s no harm in eliminating gluten at all – it can be replaced with lots of delicious alternatives and I talk about those in my newsletter.
I hope this helps!
