                  http://www.glutenfreesociety.org/?p=5015 Years of Gluten Induced Damage Needs Help Healing The status of the body after being exposed to gluten for years and years prior a medical diagnosis is not ideal. Typically, a person will have developed 1 or more autoimmune diseases. The internal chemistry favors inflammation, and the nutritional status of vitamins and minerals is suppressed and deficient. These factors can work against the body's ability to heal, and in many cases, the body will not begin to heal until these factors are addressed. Autoimmune Disease http://youtu.be/Zc6S4jr4E-I One of the primary detriments caused by gluten is autoimmune disease. Most patients will have developed at least one before they are diagnosed with gluten intolerance. Celiac disease, Hashimoto's, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Migraine, Neuropathy, Psoriasis, and Asthma are a few common examples. Once an autoimmune disease develops, it can take 2-3 years to calm the immune system down. This process often times requires the investigation of other food and environmental allergens, as these can perpetuate autoimmune dysfunction. I recommend that you have your doctor investigate this possibility with you. Nutritional Deficiencies Through Mal-absorption, Mal-digestion, and Increased Need Gluten can damage the mouth, stomach, small intestines, large intestines liver (including the gallbladder), and the pancreas. All of these organs are necessary for proper digestion, absorption, and assimilation of nutrients from the food you eat. Damage to these organs can take time to repair, but also requires adequate nutrition. If a person is nutritionally compromised, the road to recovery is stopped or slowed dramatically. I recommend that you and your doctor perform functional lab testing to determine vitamin and mineral deficiencies. It is important to use functional lab tests, as serum measurements are very inaccurate. Infection - A Commonly Missed Factor in the Recovery Process Aside from damaging the organs of digestion, gluten has been shown to alter the normal bacterial flora in the gastrointestinal tract. The bacterial changes can predispose a person to secondary infections. It is very common for patients with gluten intolerance to develop bacterial, yeast, parasitic, and viral infections. These types of chronic infections can weaken the immune systems ability to perform its normal functions and subsequently lead to or contribute to the development of other disease. For example, yeast infections are common contributors to muscle pain and inflammation, fatigue, and memory loss. Gluten can also create microscopic holes in your intestine (leaky gut). These holes allow for whole proteins and micro-organisms to leak into your bloodstream. This process contributes to further immune dysfunction and perpetual systemic inflammation. Get with your doctor and have him or her order tests to assess for infections as well as to assess for intestinal permeability (leaky gut) and abnormal bacterial overgrowth. My Doctor Won't Help Me I started Gluten Free Society to help educate patients and doctors about gluten and the recovery process. One of the reasons I was compelled to do this is because 90% of my patients come to me because traditional medicine has failed them and their doctors refuse to look beyond the proverbial box. If you fall into the 90%, visit our doctor database and look for a doctor who has been certified and trained by Gluten Free Society. If you still can't find a doctor in your area, I have developed a protocol to help you address many of the above issues.

                    This life changing testimonial from one of Dr. Peter Osborne's gluten free patients is a testament to the power of diet and functional medicine http://www.glutenfreesociety.org/glut... Gluten Free Diet Helps Resolve Elevated Triglycerides and Helps with Weight Loss One of the most common questions I get asked is -- Does a gluten free diet help with weight loss? My reply is usually this: It depends on the person. For some people going gluten free helps with weight loss, for others, going gluten free helps them gain weight. You see, everyone is affected by gluten differently. Much the same as the following analogy -- If you give 1000 people the same medication, will they all have the same side effects? No. People can have different reactions to the exact same substance. Gluten is no different. Some people have issues with hormones, others develop celiac disease, some have migraines or nerve damage... The list goes on and on. Read this article on the gluten spectrumto learn more on this. Does a Gluten Free Diet Help Lower Triglycerides? I recently had a patient who put this question to the challenge. After a functional medicine approach to her treatment, she was able to normalize her triglycerides, improve her energy levels, lose 20 pounds, lower blood pressure, and avoid the need for life long medications. All this in less than 6 months time. The bigger question here is why don't all doctors take this approach to improving their patient's health? In this case, a gluten free diet combined with other food modifications and nutritional applications probably saved this women from years of chronic degenerative heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and many other health related issues. Compare the Above to the New "Free Healthcare Bill" Under the new free health care bill, everyone will be entitled to free treatment. The same free treatment that Casey (above) would have received had she followed her original doctors advice. What was that? Go take these medications for the rest of your life and accept being ill. Just remember that free doesn't mean valuable, meaningful, or useful. It doesn't really even mean "free". If Casey had chosen the "free" road, she would have ended up sick and dependent on multiple medications that did nothing to treat the origin of her disease. The costs for her medications, extended hospital visits, and the treatment of her health complications would have cost thousands of dollars over her lifetime. You as an American taxpayer would have foot the bill. If as a country, we don't start taking diet and lifestyle choices more seriously, the majority of under educated Americans will be led down a "free" path toward extended disease and a deteriorating quality of life. Please consider diet change as a tool to help reduce the risk of future disease. Going gluten free is a great place to start.

                    • Vitamin Supplements Contain Gluten

                      http://www.glutenfreesociety.org/glut... Are You Flushing Your Money & Health Down The Toilet? A recent study investigated over the counter vitamin and mineral supplements for the presence of gluten, and the results were alarming for those who are trying to follow a gluten free diet and maintain a healthy lifestyle through the use of multi-vitamins, probiotics, etc. we investigated the presence of gluten in twenty one common dietary supplements from the national market using the immunochromatographic assay. This visual assay proved to be an efficient rapid tool for gluten screening as an alternative to the ELISA techniques. The results have shown the presence of gluten in 23.8% of the investigated samples (vitamins, minerals, plant extracts, probiotics supplements, lactoferrin, propolis supplements). Source: Roum Arch Microbiol Immunol. 2011 Oct-Dec;70(4):174-7. Why is Gluten Cross Contamination Such a Problem? Many supplement manufactures process multiple products in their facilities. Often times, grain is used as a filler or additive. Wheat germ is a common example of a gluten based ingredient being used in supplement processing. This same problem can be seen in a number of prescription and over the counter medications. Below is a list of commonly used terms that may be grain based fillers in vitamin supplement products: Wheat germ food glaze food starch maltodextrin MSG Hydrolyzed vegetable protein Textured plant protein Artificial flavors and colors natural flavors dextrin Supplementation is Critical For Those With Gluten Induced Gut Damage Multiple studies have shown the relationship between vitamin and mineral deficiencies and gluten intolerance and celiac disease. It is well established that damage to the intestinal cells can lead to malabsorption and poor digestion. One study showed that celiac patients following the gluten free diet still had vitamin and mineral deficiencies after 10 years of compliance. Add to this the fact that the chronic autoimmune inflammatory damage taxes the nutritional status of the body and we are left with chronically ill patients who need supplementation as part of their recovery process. Now add to this that almost 1/4 of all supplements contain hidden gluten and we have a major medical disaster. Corn is a Very Commonly Added Component in Supplements If you have stayed up to date with current literature and research regarding corn gluten, then you are aware of Gluten Free Society's stance on this problem. If you are not aware, go here now and catch up. Corn based fillers are extremely common in supplement products. As a matter of fact, most brands of vitamin C are derived from corn. This is one of the many reasons why vitamin C formulations cause reactions in patients with gluten intolerance issues. As corn is easily hidden and disguised in many ways, I have put together a list of terms you will want to be aware of to avoid this contaminant in your supplements. If you are in need of probiotics and vitamin supplements without gluten, you can visit the link above.
