Gluten Sensitivity Misconceptions

Food Sensitivity, including gluten,  is finally gaining traction. People are becoming aware of the symptoms of Gluten intolerance, and even some medical doctors are aware of this. So what are the symptoms you ask?

  • Migraines and Tension Headaches
  • Sore Joints, aka arthritis
  • Brain Fog
  • Skin Rashes
  • Depression
  • and of course, Digestive Problems

You can have any or all of the above symptoms, but you need to understand, this is not always a digestive problem.

Here are the common mistakes people make when going gluten free:

  • Thinking they can cheat “a little bit”.  You can’t cheat at all!
  • Not reading labels.  Wheat and gluten are added to almost everything!
  • Bringing large amounts of “gluten free” products into their diet, too much sugar!
  • Substituting corn, or rice in large amounts for the missing wheat.  Leads to more problems!

What to do?  Find a someone who practices Functional Medicine, one who knows and understands the issue of gluten sensitivity, not somebody who only knows about  celiac disease.  For more information on  ceilac disease, go here.  

Diet is “almost” everything when it comes to your health.  Time to get serious.

At Awakening Potentials, we can test you and let you know your options.

By going off all gluten for a month, and yes, that is a big commitment, and then challenging yourself with lots of wheat, such as in cereal, spaghetti and breads and in sauces, you can quickly diagnose yourself as to whether your body is sensitive to wheat and gluten. The same goes for dairy. If you go off both dairy and gluten, introduce only one of these items back into your diet at a time. If you react, and you will know it, get off the offending item, get your body to calm down and then you can challenge with the other food. Unfortunately dairy and wheat/gluten are the two biggest allergens in our diet today.
