Gluten Intolerance Symptoms Are Real, but it is not "Just Gluten" that is the problem:
I absolutely LOVE to work with GI Disorders ~ It Is My Specialty ~ About 99% of my patients have some sort of GI issues ~ Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Chron's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Gluten Intolerance, Spastic Colon, Gastritis, Metabolic Syndrome, you name it, I have seen it.
And, I happen to be really great at helping people resolve those issues. I absolutely LOVE It!
If you have any type of digestive disorder, Imagine what it would be like to not have it... Feels great, right? That is what I get to help my patients feel everyday. So great.
And most of them (I might even say all of them) are intolerant to gluten. But here is why:
Imagine having a leaky, inflamed gut, maybe it even has ulcers on it, and then you put a highly inflammatory food in it. What do you think will happen? RIGHT! It will hurt, bloat, become gassy, maybe your body will try to expel it as fast asa possible (think diarrhea) and you will likely begin having allergic reactions as your body tries to fight off this "invader". It is like putting fire on fire and it would seem like a "gluten intolerance issue".
Gluten, and largely grains, can have this effect on a person who already has a gut issue. I believe that this is the #1 reason so many people have a problem with gluten ~ it is because they have an underlying issue causing them to be unable to digest and assimilate the gluten. Rather, it becomes a painful, sticky mess on the inside.
What if we healed the gut and corrected the leakiness?
YEP! Most people can then begin consuming gluten in moderation and easily digest ancient grains that even contain gluten.
The first step in resolving gluten intolerance symptoms is to stop eating Genetically Modified Foods. I Know you have heard it before, but check out the article and watch the video:
What I have seen consistently: until my patients actually remove GMO's from their diet they really don't get to where they want to be. The GMOs seem to be creating issues like Leaky Gut Syndrome and different types of allergies which until removed they can't completely heal.
And, There Is So Much More To The Story...
So, if you have removed gluten from your diet, are eating only whole foods, have removed GMOs, and not really getting where you want, there is likely a deeper issue going on in one or more of your organ systems.
All of your organs effect the other organs in some way. In order to heal you must get to the root of the problem, not just fix the symptoms!
I highly recommend get your own Organ Systems Graph by doing a Nutritional Analysis to see if there is some other underlying organ system or hormonal imbalance possibly creating your gluten intolerance symptoms:
