How Gluten Sensitivities can lead to acute illness. Gluten Avoidance with a Routine of Bone Broth and Fermented Foods and You'll Be Feeling Great!

Posted by Doctor Lucas on

More than 10% of the population may suffer from gluten sensitivity of some form. Studies suggest that the number of gluten sensitive people is dramatically increasing every year with some studies already suggesting the percentage of those with gluten issues may be closer to 15%.  
 
If you suffer from symptoms of unwellness when eating certain types of gluten (or to much) you may be classified with:  "gluten intolerance", "gluten allergy", "gluten sensitivity" or have Coeliac Disease.   Each of these classifications have symptoms of unwellness that can range from:
  • abdominal pain,
  • acne,
  • bloating,
  • bone density loss,
  • eczema,
  • diarrhoea,
  • headaches, nausea,
  • bone and joint pain,
  • depression,
  • and much more.  
However, Coeliac Disease has more than 300 symptoms and is an autoimmune disorder of the small insestine - basically the gluten sensitivity causes the immune system to attack its own body tissue.  
It is estimated that 90% of those with coeliac disease are not diagnosed. There are no drugs available to treat coeliac.  But there are ways of treating gluten and gastro-issues that begin with foods such as bone broth (high in amino acids such as Best of the Bone) and fermented foods.
 
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye and barley. It gives bread elasticity. And for many people eating foods that contain gluten is not a problem. However, due to selective grain breeding over the years the gluten content of wheat has increased considerably.
Gluten sensitivities affect the small intestines.  In fact, gluten impairs the "villi", which lines the intestinal wall and are connected to blood vessels to carry away nutrients.   The health of the villi is a key component of nutrient absorption.   If the villi is compromised and can't do its work the result can be acute illness.  
Step one in regaining gastrointestinal health is to avoid wheat, rye and barley grains.   Often considered grains, rice, corn and millet are gluten-free.  Oats are generally gluten-free, but they contain a protein called avenin which can cause gluten-like reactions in some people.   People with gluten problems should immediately look to strengthen their gut health through bone broth and fermented foods (high in probiotics).  In those with gastrointestinal issues consistently ingesting bone broth high in gelatin, such as "Best of the Bone", and amino acids has shown to improve gut health and nutrient absorption.  

Proper gastrointestinal function is critical for total health. It is the gastrointestinal (GI) tract that guides the delivery of nutrients to the whole body, and it stabilizes the health of the entire immune system. Any compromise in the GI tract causes a breakdown in the whole system – resulting in one symptom after another, including possibly leading to increased intestinal permeability, also known as leaky gut syndrome.

There is a little known fact about gastrointestinal health – good digestion starts with amino acids like those found in Best of the Bone - a living, collagen-protein rich beef leg-bone broth gelatin! Amino acids work to strengthen the immune system, detoxify unhealthy bacteria and tissue in the gut, and rebuild new gastrointestinal cells.

Once in the bloodstream, amino acids help to re-establish normal digestive functions, strengthen the pancreas and stimulate the production of digestive acids and enzymes. There are over 15,000 enzymes produced in the pancreas. Amino acids are the building blocks for all of these enzymes!

Another little known fact about gastrointestinal health – when coupled with a high-quality probiotic (preferably via fermented foods), amino acids promote a synergistic impact to detoxify and heal gastrointestinal disorders. This means that the combination of a complete blend of free-form amino acids, ingested with a probiotic, can reduce or eliminate many painful digestive issues.
