Healing the Gut

I know what you are thinking. Gluten free is annoying. You can’t wait for it to go away so you can go out to dinner without the embarrassment of your friend asking the waiter if each item on the menu is gluten free. You preferred when they were a vegetarian. At least then you could eat your naan bread and channa masala in peace without them giving you the stink eye.

What if I told you that gluten intolerance is a real medical condition that can be backed up by science and research? What if I told you that for those with a high level of intolerance, avoiding gluten could actually save their life? What if I told you that if you are gluten intolerant it could manifest not as a digestive issue, but a neurological disease that may not be expressed now, but after many years from eating it?

In articles I-III, I am going to explain what gluten intolerance is, who is likely to get it, and what happens in the body of those who have intolerances to it. In articles IV- VI, I am going to give some solutions of what to do if you have an intolerance to gluten.
