No Gluten, No Snoring
September 23, 2013 by Bob Livingston
I am a 71 year old male and a subscriber to your newsletter. Thanks for all of your great info, much appreciated.
A couple months ago you mentioned in one of your monthly newsletters that you were suffering from snoring and sleep apnea.
I too went through the same remedies that you are using. I shifted my diet early this year (“Eat to Live” by Joel Furhman) and as a consequence stopped eating wheat products. Voila! No more snoring or apnea. Period. My girlfriend loves it!
I suggest that you stop wheat products for a month and see what happens. I would also check out other areas where wheat (gluten) lurks. Celiac disease sites are a good start.
Dropping wheat (gluten) does not work for everyone re snoring and apnea.
Google ‘snoring and gluten’ intolerance and you will find many articles.
I wish that someone, including my doctors, had turned me on to this possibility.
Best of luck.
Dear Dave W.:
Thank you so much for the kind letter. We, too, are a fan of Dr. Fuhrman and have gotten off all wheat products.
I never snore while on the C-Pap. You can wear a chin strap and achieve the same thing as far as snoring.
