Dietary 'excitotoxins' linked with fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome
"A lot of conventional medicine is about symptom suppression. For example, with someone with 'cramping' in the gut we may give a drug to reduce the cramping. A better (I think) though more alternative approach would be to attempt to find out what's causing the cramping and sort that out. As an aside, cramping in the gut and 'irritable bowel syndrome' is very often caused by food sensitivity in my experience, and wheat and perhaps other grains are common culprits."
