Good Seeds Gone Bad

Depression Fatigue Joint Pain Thyroid Problems
Bloating Constipation Diarrhea Migraines
Infertility Multiple Sclerosis Rheumatoid Arthritis Allergy Asthma Psoriasis Irritable Bowel Disease Chronic Sinus Infections
What do all of these things have in common?
They can all be caused by, or made worse by eating wheat, rye or barley, the most common foods that contain gluten.
Glutens are types of proteins found in mostly in the endosperm (where white flour comes from) of wheat, rye, barley and other grains.
Gluten provides the “stickiness” that gives bread its ability to rise, and pizza dough able to be stretched. Gluten does impart attractive properties to grain flours. But there can be a “mean” side to gluten as well.
Glutens are large proteins, high in the amino acids proline and glutamine. These two amino acids make these proteins HARD TO DIGEST. Gluten reactions have increased dramatically over the past 50 years, and this is not just greater awareness, but actual increases.
The partially digested proteins make some people sick, to varying degrees, from celiac Disease to gluten “intolerance”. Gluten can, in effect, drill holes in your gut, wreaking havoc with your digestion and immune system. This can cause PERMANENT damage to the immune system. Real. Serious. Business.
The majority of people with gluten problems probably don’t know it. Gluten causes immune system dysfunction, that shows up as one or more of those conditions listed above.
It usually takes about 10 years or more, before some people are diagnosed with gluten sensitivity or gluten related illness. Gluten problems can be very hard to detect, even for a doctor with high awareness of the problem.
At Bailey Health & Wellness Center suspect gluten problems in anyone with longstanding health problems of any sort. So maybe you are sick and tired of being sick and tired gluten may be part of the problem
