Non-celiac gluten sensitivity or gluten intolerance comes with a wide range of symptoms from rashes to digestive issues. Medicating all these disparate afflictions will soon have you popping pills like a Pez dispenser. Luckily, there are some natural ways in which you can beat the gluten blues without negative side effects.
So you’ve given up your pizza crusts, hamburger buns and bread and for this monumental sacrifice, you are assured that you are living a healthier lifestyle. If you have stilled your carb cravings with fruit, whole grains, sprouted grains and veggies then congratulations; you really are on your way to a long and healthy life.
Gluten, gluten everywhere and the effect it’s having on our bodies is astronomical. The increase in hamburger buns, pizza dough, unhealthy snacks and processed bread in our diets has introduced more gluten than our poor digestive tracts can manage. You see, modern baking methods don’t leave enough time for the gluten to convert into digestible sugars and this causes a negative reaction in the immune systems of those who are gluten-intolerant leading to a number of unpleasant, and often debilitating symptoms.
The modern diet results in a plethora of ailments from gluten sensitivity to depression and everything in between. But making healthy choices can be intimidating and expensive. You don’t need to learn to decipher nutrition labels or take a course in vegan cooking to navigate your way successfully through the supermarket aisles. You need to return to a simpler time when food looked like it did when it was harvested and your grandma would recognize it.
