Hey, so I've finally plucked up the courage to find all you guys
I have a particularly sensitive gut, not stomach, more the intestines. I've found that reducing dairy (no milk, but cheese and natural yoghurt are okay in small amounts) helps reduce the gas and bloating I get a few hours after eating. I now have soy milk and yoghurt, coconut or almond milk. That out of the way has exposed other health issues that I'm dealing with.
Recently I've been paying more attention to similar symptoms; the wheat I eat. I've found if I eat out (not often, perhaps once a month) and have pizza, even the thin one I feel awful about an hour later; gas, bloating, dizzy, tired. However indian with naan bread is okay as is Mexican with wraps. So I looked it up and it suggests a wheat sensitivity / allergy. Now here's where it gets interesting; if I bake bread at home, maike my own chapattis (roti), make any cakes (I usually sub in a bit of almond flour), or make my own pizza bases; no issues. I can have bought wraps (all types), flatbread (lavash), wholemeal (seeded) loaves, and naan breads they are all fine. Bought pizza and white bread do not sit well - so I don't get those often.
I've only heard of gluten intolerance, or allergy, does a sensitivity exist? Or is it something else? Like to do with the process used to make bleached white flour as opposed to wholemeal / natural (that I use). Could it be the fortified stuff?
