Gluten Free Recipes
Are you thinking of trying a gluten free diet? For most people, going gluten free means enjoying better health.
Gluten – the protein found in grains including wheat, barley, rye, spelt, kamut, and oats can contribute to a laundry list of health problems including: depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, OCD, autism, autoimmune disorders and dementia, not to mention bloating, fatigue, gastrointestinal distress, nutrient deficiencies, respiratory difficulties, systemic inflammation and many other health issues.
And for those with celiac disease, the effects are much more dangerous.
When people with celiac disease consume gluten, the body mounts an immune response that damages the finger-like projections (or villi) of the small intestine. This injury can result in severe pain, weight loss and gastrointestinal distress, as well as vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
But a gluten free diet totally eliminates gluten from the diet, the lining of the intestine has a chance to heal. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, try this and see how your body responds. Also consider getting a full allergen panel to nail down which specific allergies and intolerances may be keeping you from enjoying a vibrant, healthy, disease-free life.
Here are the specific criteria for Gluten Free Recipes at Healing Gourmet:
