I was reading an article about hayfever and how to relieve it through diet on Times Online, and one comment on the article was that by going gluten free she has rid herself of hayfever and eczema - is it worth a go?

Hi Judy - I would definitely say it is worth considering, as many people experience inflammation after eating gluten-containing foods (especially wheat). Inflammation causes a number of changes in the body that can alter the immune system's response, and this can result in allergy. However, it should be said that, whilst most people feel better after cutting down their gluten intake, it is very unusual that this would eliminate hayfever. In my experience, there is more likelihood of seeing a response in eczema but, in any case, it may be wise to see a professional to provide advice on your diet and whether it suits you and to test for any allergies/intolerances you may have.

I have included a link below to information on the allergy tests that I offer.

You really need to be tested to see what is right for YOU - ones mans meat is another mans poison. I have found cutting out sugar and dairy and supplementing with high doses of vitamin C, vitamin D and omega 3 and protein helps a lot of people but I cant stress enough that its very individual. Either see a kinesiologist or have a blood test for food sensitivity.

Gluten aggravates many problems, so eczema is probably one of them. I have personally found that taking a clean fish oil with Omega 3 6 and 9s helps tremendously and often completely makes it disappear. good luck!

It can. So can changing your soap or lotion. Most commercial soaps and lotions contain skin irritants such as SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate), TEA, DEA, propylene glycol, and others. See my website for more info. http://www.holtholistichealing.com

Hi Judy-J
Yes, there is lot in it cutting out gluten (wheat in particular). However, we are all bio-individual and I would suggest you see a Kinesiologist and get this theory tested out on your body to see whether it is true for you personally. You can find one near you at

I have found that gluten and dairy both can be linked to eczema. But its also worth bearing in mind that eczema is also made worse by stress and worry so, learning and using relaxation and stress reduction will also help

HI Judy- I definitely notice skin improvement from reducing or eliminating glutens for myself and in my clients. My therapy work also helps to clear many energetic distortions which may be keeping this pattern in place for you. Hope this helps.
