Gluten is a protein found in ALL grains. In some of us, the gluten in WHEAT, RYE, OATS and BARLEY causes our immune systems to overreact - leading to inflammation and health issues.
The rise of gluten sensitivity is not a fad, but can be linked to the 200% increase in the gluten content of WHEAT in the last 60 years.
There's plenty of confusion and mis-information out there like the following:
"Gluten sensitivity is a FAD"
"I don't have any digestion issues- so I can't have a gluten sensitivity",.. or
"I've been checked for that, and I was told I'm ok."
Because of the confusion and the link to health issues that I see in my clinic, I often give a community lecture on Gluten Sensitivity and our next one is this thursday at 6 pm at my office. Call our office to see if we have enough space to fit you in! (831) 372-5602. If you can't make it, I recommend the following book for a very good insight into the problem of gluten sensitivity: "Wheat Belly" by Dr. William Davis, a Cardiologist. You can go to his website at wheatbellyblog.com for more information!
