Gluten is a toxin to some people, and they feel better after a few months of going gluten free. If you are sensitive, gluten can raise your TPO antibodies (causing Hashimotos thyroid disease). Gluten is basically a food additive, and most people associate gluten with Celiac disease (an autoimmune condition) and with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) or Crohn’s, colitis and other digestive disorders.
Gluten doesn’t have to upset your stomach, sometimes it just damages your brain and central nervous system and you have no GI symptoms at all. Other common symptoms associated with gluten sensitivity:
Depression. Brain fog – it can cause cerebral hypoperfusion (lowered blood flow to the brain). Confusion. Lethargy. Mood problems. Some people that think they have neuropathies related to multiple sclerosis or Parkinsons, or ALS, and all these may actually be gluten intolerance. Weight gain. Gas. Bloating. Lack of energy. Headaches.
Going gluten-free can cure a person of many problems. I expect you to do well as long as you use the UltraInflamX 360 & LactoFlamX with the food plan I layed out. Don’t forget to order UltraInflamX 360 & LactoFlamX from www.DrJeffreyTucker.meta-ehealth.com
Most people don’t know they have Celiac Disease or gluten intolerance. Most practitioners overlook this disorder that causes damage to the small intestine when gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye, is eaten.
On top of infertility, other gynecological and obstetrical problems may also be more common, including miscarriages and preterm births. For men, problems can include abnormal sperm — such as lower sperm numbers, altered shape, and reduced function. Men with untreated celiac disease may also have lower testosterone levels.
The good news is that with proper treatment with a gluten-free diet and correction of nutritional deficiencies, the prognosis for future pregnancies is much improved.
What is Celiac Disease?
Gluten is a protein contained in many grains, including wheat, barley, rye, and oats. It is even found in more unusual grains, such as spelt and kamut. Gluten is also found in beer. Wheat or gluten intolerance can cause gastric complaints like bloating and excess gas. Some chronic illnesses may be triggered by gluten intolerance, gluten sensitivity, and the extreme form of wheat allergy called celiac disease.
The problem is that gluten sensitivity creates inflammation in the entire body, beginning in the gut. It is a form of autoimmune disease. Celiac disease, the chronic and most severe type of gluten intolerance, affects one in a hundred people. Less severe symptoms of gluten allergy or gluten sensitivity may affect as much as one third of the US population.
If you suffer from irritable bowel disease, canker sores, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, osteoporosis, anemia, cancer, autoimmune disease, MS, unexplained neurological problems, depression, anxiety, dementia, schizophrenia, nerve damage, migraines, epilepsy, and autism I will often recommend going gluten free. In addition to grains, gluten can be hidden in products such as soups, salad dressings, and even vitamins, stamps, and cosmetics. I also often recommend UltraInflamX and Probiotics by Metagenics to help heal the gut and decrease the overall inflammation in the body.
