Book Nook: Let Them Eat Wheat

There are many foods that have been vilified in the past (like butter), that have later been found to be perfectly fine. Right now, one food on the hot seat is gluten. While it's true that there are people who have celiac disease that truly can't have wheat, there are also people with gluten intolerances that may actually be able to eat wheat. That's the idea behind a book I recently got to review, Eat Wheat: A Scientific and Clinically-Proven Approach to Safely Bringing Wheat and Dairy Back Into Your Diet
 written by Dr John Douillard, DC, CAP. While the hardcover and paperback versions won't be available until January, you can get the eBook now!

The book has the premise that we've been eating wheat for longer than we've been hunters - and that even glutinous grains like wheat and barley suit our digestive processes well.

Dr. Douillard is a former NBA nutrition expert and creator of He has spent the past 30 years and has seen more than 100,000 patients in his natural health practice, helping to improve their digestive systems and begin to eat wheat again.

It was a book that explained the science without being too hard to understand. My sister-in-law currently avoids gluten, and she would like to follow the guidelines in the book to begin to be able to eat wheat again. Even for people without gluten sensitivity, this book can help improve health by improving awareness of a variety of factors implementing our ability digest wheat, including the toxins found in modern wheat and dairy, the impact of the lymph system, digestive circadian cycles, and blood sugar.

“Your digestive strength is the key to a long, healthy and vital life,” adds Dr. Douillard. “The choice as to whether or not you can eat gluten or dairy shouldn’t be decided for you because of weak digestion, it should be decided by you as a preference.”
