Starting To Think Wheat Or Bread Is Causing My Acne

3 posts in this topic

The times when I've had persistent acne, I was eating sandwiches everyday. The times when my face has been fairly clear, I was eating more whole foods, veggies, no bread.

Recently I purchased some 100% whole wheat to have toast in the morning. I've noticed that soon after eating this, my face becomes itchy and red, especially under the eyes. I never made the connection to wheat until I read that other people experienced the same thing. Also, my acne has slowly returned since eating bread.

Anyone else experience this?

Many people have a gluten intolerance. Also, gluten isnt good for many such as that I It mimics insulin and that it damages the gut linings. But it sounds like you actually gave a wheat allergy.

Yeap, 100% and dairy too.

I feel the itchyness, it drives me insane. I'd rather just avoid it and not feel that.

I cut them out and I feel so much better, and so does my skin.

I was able to drink milk and eat wheat for majority of my life. All of a sudden I can't. Maybe its the environment or the chemical additives within those products.
