Feel bloated, constipated, have skin rashes and allergies, are chronically tired/foggy headed and generally unwell? It's time to look at your wheat intake!
Unfortunately, it takes many years of eating too much wheat to get a diagnosis, So, if you’re symptomatic, your risk of developing other diseases, especially autoimmune disorders. Which means, if you’re diagnosed with wheat intolerance, your chances of developing an autoimmune condition skyrocket from the average 3.5 percent to 34 percent.
Experts now tell us that undiagnosed gluten allergies are also associated with increased risk of Alzheimer's.
The Role of Grains (including wheat derived) in Inflammatory Disease
If you suffer from any inflammatory condition – be it celiac, autoimmune disorders, or heart disease, to name but a few – you need to first and foremost avoid grains ie all wheat and wheat derived products!
Many people are now taking probiotics. These cannot be used as a way to maintain a grain based diet without suffering ill effects. Grains and sugars are highly pro-inflammatory, and while probiotics are anti-inflammatory, they cannot cancel out the detrimental effects of a diet high in starchy wheat and sugar.
Learn and know the importance of eliminating grains from your diet, even minute amounts of gluten, a protein most commonly found in wheat, rye and barley.
The good news is, the combination of avoiding or eliminating grains, along with increased consumption of probiotic foods (or a high quality supplement) in conjunction with a gut healing diet plan can bring new hope and increased health for millions of people suffering from gluten intolerance, celiac disease and other autoimmune disorders.
Making the change is easier than you think
Without good gut bacteria, your body cannot absorb certain vital nutrients, vitamins and minerals including undigested starches, fiber, and fats. The friendly bacteria in your digestive tract convert these into primary sources of important energy and nutrients.
Probiotics help in the production of both vitamin K and B vitamins, and promote mineral absorption. They also aid in metabolism and the breakdown of toxins, so this is why you are feeling so exhausted and unwell, you are not absorbing what you need for health, vitality and energy!!
Keeping bad bacteria under control including candida is vital to a healthy gut which is your epicentre of wellbeing.
Beneficial bacteria have a lifelong, powerful effect on your guts' immune system and your systemic immune system as well. The bacteria play a crucial role in your digestive tract. They also aid in the production of antibodies to pathogens.
Take a good Probiotic
The best option is to get your probiotics from natural, traditionally fermented foods, such as chou crute and miso. But I realise that they are not to everyone's taste.
Fermented soya or natto, is an excellent vegetarian food product that is excellent choice for natural probiotics, Also, natural raw sheep or goat milk yogurt and cheeses. Get good quality products from the health food store, beware of those loaded with sugar.
Unfortunately, food manufacturers have tapped into the health-supporting properties of probiotics, and gluten free and most are still highly processed and not actually healthy at all !!!
Take a high quality probiotic supplement, which bacterial good strains are included? Look for probiotic supplements which:
Can survive stomach acid so that it reaches your small intestine
Stays reside in your digestive tract long enough to be effective
Survive high temperatures and do not need to be refrigerated, which adds convenience.
Foods for Treating Gluten Intolerance and Celiac Disease
- Gluten intolerance means a gluten-free diet, which means abstaining from grains and any food that contains gluten.
- Often, avoiding gluten for a week or two is enough to see significant improvement. However, sometimes several months may be necessary.
- Also cut down on sugar, which causes rises in insulin that exacerbate health problems such as: such as leaky gut syndrome and candida.
- Processed foods like ready-made meals are the worst, plus anything that contains soy sauce etc read labels carefully!
- Eat as much fresh healthy food as possible, juice it if your not a veggy freak!
- Chlorophyl is your best immune booster and also helps to clear the liver of toxins produced by poor digestion etc.
Try to stick to a diet of fresh, whole foods, preferably organic whenever possible. Not only will you keep your symptoms under control, but you will also experience numerous other benefits such as increased energy, enhanced mood, and a lower risk of chronic illness.
