As an RN with 25 yrs experience, hoping I can reassure you. C-diff is a type of infection; eliminating wheat, which has been linked to inflammatory responses in the gut & immune system, will only help you. If anything, the GMO's and other enzymes in wheat would be more likely to trigger seizures than NOT consuming it would. Wheat has no known benefits for either a clostridium difficult patient nor someone who is having seizure activity. Anyone who tells you different has a motive, an agenda, and you can take that to the bank. Wishing you better health! ~

Also---@ Kari---you say "someone just told you this diet puts too much stress on the body". Would this someone have a medical degree ? If not, it's safe to ignore their advice. This diet doesn't stress your body one degree more than any other popular,sensible and science/medicine based diet out there. Lay people have alot of peculiar opinions about how their bodies work that aren't grounded in science or reality. If you have seizures, even just one, it is not linked to not consuming wheat. If you're on seizure meds, have your blood serum levels checked, your Dr may need to adjust your meds. If you've never had seizure before, then you need to see a neurologist asap and get to the bottom of this. Bottom line: not eating wheat does NOT cause seizure activity. Hoping that reassures you somewhat. Best Regards & wishing you good health.
