You could wean yourself gradually, and take one day at a time. Make homemade soups in bulk, find a good gluten free cereal and use coconut, almond or rice milk on it. My favorite is So Delicious Vanilla Coconut milk. Have mostly veggies, a bit of brown rice (my favorite is California Style Basmati) and a protein for dinner.

I forgot to mention soy...it can also cause a lot of problems for some people. I also avoid soy.

Oh...have you tried probiotics or fish, cod liver or krill oil? Probiotics have been very helpful for me, along with vitamin B-12. I don't take a lot of supplements, but these two are my mainstays. I need to resume my cod liver oil.
I actually purchased some fish oil pills a few weeks ago. I've been meaning to start taking them more regularly.

Thanks for the tips.

Oh yes, supplements. In addition to the fish oil, flax and borage oil. There are many companies that make a combo in one supplement. The borage oil is a great eczema fighter.

And it's not the wheat I avoid, but I have noticed when I avoid cow's milk (I drink soy milk) I do better.
