Everyone loves food – it’s like a universal truth. However, if we begin to suffer from any disease, our diet is the first thing that is affected. According to our internal problem, we bring changes in our diet; for instance, if someone suffers from diabetes, one has to avoid sugar.

Just imagine! One has to say a big NO to the mouth-watering, scrumptious deserts. How terrifying! Similarly, if someone suffers from high blood pressure, one has to avoid salt. This is truly heart-wrenching. If one suffers from celiac disease or develops any type of gluten sensitivity, one has to avoid foods which contain gluten.
