In brief: Gluten-free diet

For the very rare person with celiac disease, and the occasional person with gluten sensitivity, this diet is essential.
For everyone else, it is no healthier than any other diet, and mostly a huge hassle to follow and a very expensive way to eat. If a short trial does not show definite changes in your symptoms, I do not recommend it. Good luck.
