Dear Dr. Dehal,

Nowadays gluten, particularly that found in modern wheat (which is different from the wheat consumed before the 20th century), receives very much attention in the Western world; many people are considered gluten intolerant or allergic, people go on gluten-free diets, and some maintain that even for normal, healthy people, the consumption of gluten is harmful, scrubbing away at their intestinal walls like sandpaper and causing malabsorption, even though in the healthy people, the symptoms are not as apparent as the clearly gluten-intolerant people.

As an Ayurvedic doctor from India, I would be very interested to know your view on this gluten issue, and on the problematic nature or not of consuming gluten, and wheat in particular.

Thank you in advance for your help and all best greetings,

Even in India this is happening to children.Even i have treated such patients with good success.
According to Ayurveda we consider it as Aam dosha and we give treatment according to that line and also depending on person to person symptoms. This is becoming  common these days cos of our wrong dietary patterns and habits or our bad life style.We can avoid this by obeying natural life style or on the principle of Ayurveda.
