Gluten Intolerance – 1 of My Leaky Gut SecretsPosted by Karen Brimeyer
I want to talk to you today about a single topic that pretty much revolutionized the success I get with my clients. When I started doing this with my clients, the effects were typically immediate. Not only was I getting better results, I was getting much faster results.
Sub-Clinical Gluten Intolerance
Many people are aware of gluten intolerance in the traditional sense of Celiac Disease which is a severe genetic autoimmune condition where gluten (found in wheat, barley, and rye) cannot be properly digested. This results in severe inflammation within the digestive tract that not only causes Leaky Gut Syndrome but also results in severe diarrhea, digestive pain, and fatigue.
But not many people are aware of a much lesser known problem referred to as Sub-Clinical Gluten Intolerance. The term “sub-clinical” means that there are no obvious signs and symptoms.
But while there are no obvious signs and symptoms, inflammation is still present but on a lesser scale. But this low grade inflammation can cause damage over years causing Leaky Gut and for your chronic symptoms to occur.
In fact, there was a large scale medical study run in the US on chronically ill patients that were unresponsive to medical treatments. The researchers believed that there could be a dietary connection and thus used saliva testing for sub-clinical gluten intolerance on several hundred of these patients of which 85% tested positive.
Many times you can see a common pattern with people who suffer from sub-clinical gluten intolerance. Typically as children they will suffer from allergies, asthma, reoccurring infections, a constant upset stomach, and milk intolerance. Then as they get older their symptoms will subside until they reappear later in life.
But don’t expect your doctor to diagnose you or to even understand what leaky gut and sub-clinical gluten intolerance really is. This is not widely known yet in the traditional medical community. And unfortunately, most doctors these days are not well educated when it comes to nutrition.
Gluten Intolerance Treatment
The only long term treatment for gluten intolerance is to avoid gluten. This is a genetic condition that cannot be healed or fixed so the only real option is avoidance.
And while avoidance of gluten is key, you will also need to heal your leaky gut in the process to reverse this long term damage so that your symptoms go away.
Eat This, Not That
Eat: Rice, corn, millet, quinoa, amaranth, oats (for most people), and buckwheat are all safe to eat.
Not: Gluten containing foods such as wheat, rye, barley, kamut, spelt, teff, and couscous that are typically found in bread, pasta, bagels, and cereals.
You can conduct your own test at home by completely removing gluten from your diet for a minimum of 2 weeks (longer is better) noting any improvements in your symptoms. After your gluten-free trial period is over, re-introduce gluten containing foods in large amounts and note all adverse reactions. If any of your symptoms reoccur or worsen, you are likely exhibiting an intolerance to gluten.
If you find that you are intolerant to gluten and you want to start getting relief immediately then my program will reverse the damage and put an end to your symptoms.
