In my practice, I take a close look at my patients dietary habits and get to see first hand the ill effects that certain foods and substances can have on the body. One of the primary “offenders” to the health of many people are grains, particularly those containing a protein called gluten. Grains that include this protein are wheat (all forms such as semolina, durum, etc.), rye, spelt, kamut, barley, and most types of oats.
Food sensitivities, especially to gluten, are some of the most common nutritional challenges I see in my Cupertino practice. For many, going gluten-free is the “holy grail” that resolves many chronic health issues.
Djokovic chalks his heightened performance up to the elimination of wheat and its by-products. When the athlete found out he was sensitive to gluten, he made the decision to cut it out completely, and the results couldn’t be better. To read more about Novak Djokovic’s success, click here.
