The Gluten Problem

Gluten free. It’s everywhere now. Many think it’s the latest fad out there. Fad or not, gluten is a problem for so many people. Gluten sensitivity is the most under-recognized, undiagnosed medical condition of our time. Many people out there who are gluten sensitive don’t even know it and they could cure their ailments without the use of drugs by solely by removing gluten from their diets.

Undigested gluten lingering around in your body causes inflammation, which in turn can cause disease as well as weight gain. In a sensitive individual, gluten also causes poor absorption of nutrients which can lead to anemia, hormonal imbalance, and mood disorders such as anxiety and depression. Unfortunately, many people think that the symptoms of gluten sensitivity are solely in the digestive tract (bloating, diarrhea, constipation, cramps). Gluten sensitivity can manifest in any system in your body and symptoms are variable depending on the person: migraines, joint pain, digestive issues, fatigue, exhaustion, brain fog, and the list goes on.

I’m not saying going gluten free is the answer to everything as I did several things to heal my body on my journey to healing, but going gluten free definitely helped me tremendously. And the past few weekends when I accidentally ingested some gluten while at weddings and eating random things at restaurants, my body can feel it. I’m extremely tired, sluggish, and unmotivated all of a sudden, as well as swollen joints.

Here are two posts that I wrote below that go into more depth about gluten sensitivity and celiac disease and how to recognize the symptoms and what to do about it:
