How to Overcome Gluten Sensitivity

April 4, 2017

 

Gluten Sensitivity

Gluten sensitivity is a cluster of symptoms related to a reaction to the protein found in the wheat plant called gluten.

The severe form of gluten sensitivity is Celiac’s disease, but gluten can also cause other less severe symptoms, such as joint pain, headaches, fatigue and poor memory.

Causes of gluten sensitivity include genetics, leaky gut syndrome, fungal infection and genetic modification of wheat.


Gluten Sensitivity Diet

Non-gluten-containing grains: Quinoa, buckwheat, arrowroot, millet, potatoes and rice.
Fruits and vegetables: Fruits and vegetables are unlimited and can provide essential nutrients.
Lean protein: Helps keep cells and muscles healthy, especially for those who have struggled with Celiac disease, which can lead to malnutrition.
Non-gluten flours: Use flours like coconut four and almond flour in baking.


Gluten Sensitivity Food List

Any food containing gluten: Wheat, couscous, spelt, semolina, rye, barley and oats.
Any other grains: Might also cause a reaction similar to gluten.
Packaged foods: Most packaged foods contain wheat and gluten.
