I also agree, unless you are gluten intolerant I would not recommend going gluten free. I find it to be a huge effort, probably since I am very new at it.
I went to a functional doctor in March, and he told me that he takes all of his auto-immune patients off of glueten to see if they have a sensitivity. I was tested for a gluten allergy and it came back positive.
If you do have a gluten intolerance it might be worth giving up gluten to see how you feel. If you are intolerant, the gluten can damage the lining of your stomach and cause leaky gut syndrome. I am not sure if you are familiar with this. I think some people think this is an important factor in MS and others think its ridiculous. I am not sure how I feel about this yet, still doing my research. I do agree with the others, if you give it up you should do it for a longer period of time. Supposedly, it takes gluten six months to leave your system entriely. This does not mean that you wont start to feel better/different sooner.
The benefits of giving up gluten for me seem to be having more energy and less of a brain fog. This could also be many of the other changes I have made in my life as well. Its hard to tell exactly what is working. Most of all, I belive it is helping so in turn it makes me feel positive. Also, giving up gluten has forced me to cut out anything "white" from my diet which makes me eat even more greens, who knew it was even possible!
This is an intereresting article on how a gluten intolerance can impact your health. It seems a bit dramatic, but it outlines how to find out if you do have a sensitivity.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-mark-h ... 79089.html
