Gluten Free Diet - Vitality Living Method®
Gluten is the no. 1 food intolerant in the western diet. If you suspect that you are gluten intolerant it is best to have a blood test done to rule out the fact that you could be a celiac. However, even if you are not a celiac, you may still be intolerant to gluten as it is the most common food intolerant of all. Combine that with the fact that is found in a huge proportion of foods including bread, porridge, cereal, biscuits, cakes, crisps, pasta, most refined carbohydrates, processed foods and almost all sauces, it becomes clear that living a gluten free lifestyle will take a little bit of though.
What Is Gluten?
Gluten is essentially the major protein component in wheat, rye and barley. As it is broken down in the digestive system it can lead to enormous problems for many people. Very often the immune system identifies it as a toxin and launches an attack against it. In short, our bodies do not like gluten. But some of us really really dont like it. The people whose bodies simply cant tolerant gluten at all, are known as Coeliacs and their bodies take an extreme position on gluten. But the rest of us, even if we are not coeliacs (celiacs) have a pretty tough time digesting gluten. Varied and multiple symptoms results from this inability to digest gluten.
