Gerwyn Price and his performance and poor health

Welsh professional darts player, Gerwyn Price was not winning any of the matches. He was also not the crowd favorite. He had to put ear defenders to not hear crowd abuse hurled at him. He lost the World Championship at the quarter final level due to this.

Gerwyn feels that he was unable to think clearly. He suffered due to it and his physical condition was also not up to date. The Iceman was worried and consulted several specialists for his poor health condition. He said:

“I have seen a lot of specialists to try and find out what is triggering the water retention in my hand and my feet.”

“Whenever the temperature rises in my body or in a room then things don’t seem to be right.”

“I have seen specialists who don’t seem to know what the answer is.”

Not getting any relief with doctor’s prescription, he did his own research and came to the conclusion that his body is in dire need of a gluten free diet.

Gerwyn, 38 commenced the gluten free diet and found improvement in his physical and mental state. Moreover, this also helped his performance. He returned to form. He said:

And as regards the cons, he revealed:

“It is a little bit awkward sometimes when you want to go out for family meals, you are having to find somewhere that actually does gluten-free.”

“But you’d be surprised by what you can eat, a full English breakfast is mostly gluten-free.”

“It is quite hard but being gluten-free cleans up your diet anyway and gets rid of rubbish foods, which certainly helps. It gives me focus.”
