INFORMATION ON GLUTEN AND FOR GLUTEN-FREE LIVING
"...it’s becoming more and more clear that celiac disease (CD) is only one manifestation of gluten intolerance, and that “non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS)” (i.e. people that react to gluten but do not have celiac disease) is a legitimate health condition.
In this free e-book you’ll learn:
That Celiac disease is only the tip of the iceberg
How a person can be gluten intolerant without having CD
Gluten intolerance can affect nearly every tissue in the body, including the brain, skin, endocrine system, stomach, liver, blood vessels, smooth muscles, and even the nuclei of cells. CD and NCGS are associated with an astonishing variety of diseases, including schizophrenia, epilepsy, Type 1 diabetes, osteoporosis, dermatitis, psoriasis, Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, and peripheral neuropathy. (13) Because the range of symptoms associated with gluten intolerance is so broad and nonspecific (i.e. can be attributed to any number of conditions), many patients and doctors don’t suspect gluten may be the cause... I don’t believe that gluten is responsible for all chronic illness in all people, as some have seemed to suggest. But I think the research clearly supports the existence of non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and if anything, it is significantly under-diagnosed. Left untreated, gluten intolerance can lead to serious and debilitating health conditions, so discovering and addressing a sensitivity can save your future health as well as improve your current quality of life." - Chris Kresser
