Do you have gut issues? Have you ever suspected that you might have trouble with gluten?
If you are experiencing chronic health problems, maybe it’s time to consider whether gluten or even grains in general are something that might be a culprit in your health issues.
A permeable gut lining is characteristic of digestive compromise which is caused in part from eating toxic, processed foods. Scientists have discovered that gluten is difficult to digest. When it enters the digestive tract, undigested proteins in gluten can penetrate the gut lining. When the undigested proteins enter the bloodstream they make their way to the blood-brain barrier. These proteins actually act as an opioid in brain receptors, triggering the release of opiods in the body and causing a “high” feeling similar to when drugs such as opium are used.
This can also cause a wide array of symptoms from digestive disorders to eczema, brain fog or inability to concentrate, asthma, frequent infections, auto-immune disease and weight gain, irritability and depression, mal-absorption of nutrients fatigue and muscle weakness, joint and bone problems, and others.
If you have had health symptoms you just can’t figure out and have thought about removing gluten from your diet to see if it makes a difference, but aren’t sure where and how to start: here are 6 great resources by authors who have already experienced life before and after consuming gluten and can provide insight, experience, recipes, and hope for those who have suffered with the symptoms created from gluten issues.
