I don't like being on steroids and picking up illnesses so frequently as I have this winter. I am wondering if anyone on here had asthma, tried this program and was healed from it? I used to be very healthy, but my quality of life has gone downhill quickly since I got the asthma diagnosis.
Guess you just have to bite the bullet and throw out all your wheat products right? I wasted so much money. But I'll waste even more if I don't try this and see if I don't get better. Thanks for any help you might be able to share with me.

Thank you Linda. Do you have any cookbooks you particularly follow or do you have any other ideas of how to get started making the plunge? I do appreciate it! ;)

Posted on Feb 27, 2012 8:03:45 AM PST has a gluten free support group
i would google gluten free recipes try a few and get a feel of what you like better almond flour or coconut flour ect
I also have an allergy for dairy so i currently do a paleo diet and my favorite is Well Fed by Malissa Joulwan you can go on her website
{clothes make the girl}to see if her recipes interest you. also see if you have any gluten free resturants or bakeries in you area
udi products are good in the freezer section of markets. I do like cook books for pasteries other than that i use my own recipes and substitute gluten free pasta, corn starch for gravy, cooked cabbage for lasagna noodles, when i started out it was hard for me so i bought alot of products i dont cheat any more because someone told me gluten to me was like eating rat poison. i can breath im energized i feel 15 years younger, ive lost wieght. make it easy for yourself

Thank you Linda. You have given me some wonderful ideas here and I appreciate
your taking the time to share them with me. I am glad it has helped you and I hope I can be as successful as you have been with going wheat free. Thanks again.

I gave up wheat about 5 weeks ago. I also have (had?) asthma. I usually take a few puffs from my inhaler (albuterol) before I work out at the gym, but I forgot my inhaler about 2-3 weeks into my wheat-free trial (which is now a permanent dietary exclusion for me).

While I used to gasp for air if I did the eliptical and weights without using the inhaler, I had absolutely no problems breathing while working out this time. It was really remarkable, actually.

So I won't (yet) say I've been "cured" of my asthma, I'm noticing some very positive affects from going wheat-free. I'm also not getting headaches like I used to.

Good luck!

I appreciate reading your posts about going about going gluten free and having reduced or nearly no asthma symptoms. I've had asthma all my life, but recently in the last 3 months, the asthma has gotten worse and I don't have the stamina I once had and the drs. can't figure it out. SO, I am gonna try gluten free and see if it makes a difference for me.

I also grew up with Asthma as a kid. A few years ago we moved into this place that was a block from the freeway, and across the street from a bus stop (high air pollution area). My Asthma resurfaced and I was put on Steroid Inhalers 2X/Day. When I adopted a low carb way of eating in February 2011, I noticed several positive changes: no more gas or bloating after eating, mind fog gone, increase in energy, inpulsive eating gone, weight loss, AND no more need for the Steroid Inhaler. I had not moved, the only difference was that I had given up wheats and sweets. Now I can't say for sure if it was the wheats or a combination of the two that cured my Asthma, but having experienced such a significant improvement in my health, there is no way I would ever go back to that "old" way of eating again.

There are so many gluten free bloggers out there these days, publishing cookbooks and posting FREE recipes! Laura Dobson of is a great starting point for all things wheat free and low carb. Yes, you'll have to spend a little more money on alternative foods to cook or bake with (I like to bake), and experiment with sugar alcohols too. For me, even if I had not experienced any of those other "side," effects from giving up wheat and going low-carb, the loss of the Steroid Inhalers would be sufficient. I have not needed to use my inhalers since going low carb and I would never entertain the thought of going back. Curing myself from Asthma is priceless. I know I'm worth it, and you are too!
