The nasty business of wheat re-exposure

Steve’s wife, Jenny, shared these photos of her husband feeling well off all wheat and grains, then after a wheat exposure: “Went to a party last night. Thought he could have pizza since he’s looked so good for so long. This is him before and after.” Of course, Steve will survive after enduring some misery and perhaps embarrassment. But the whole business of re-exposure to wheat and related grains can be quite nasty. Among the most common wheat/grain re-exposure reactions are: Abdominal distress–bloating, diarrhea, discomfort, even severe acute pain Joint pain–in fingers and wrists, as well as large joints Skin rash–particularly if you had some form of rash, such as seborrhea, rosacea, eczema, or psoriasis during prior grain-consuming days Mental/emotional effects–anger, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, depression, restlessness/restless legs, insomnia/disrupted sleep, impulsive behaviors If you obtained relief from an autoimmune or neurological condition after several months of the Wheat Belly lifestyle (and the Wheat Belly Total Health additional strategies), wheat/grain re-exposure can re-activate your disease. One of my most memorable examples: I was seeing a 52-year old male businessman for mild coronary disease prevention a few years ago. As he had the typical lowish HDL, highish triglycerides, and plenty of small LDL particles underlying his coronary disease, I advised him to eliminate all wheat/grains, as well as add vitamin...

We examined this approach for studies on several types of T cell membrane proteins, previously defined as raft or non-raft associated, to see whether the properties of the raft derived SMALPs differ from non-raft SMALPs. Our results indicate that two types of raft proteins, GPI-anchored proteins and two Src family kinases, are markedly present in membrane fragments much larger (>250 nm) than those containing non-raft proteins (

Publication date: Available online 14 August 2018Source: European Polymer JournalAuthor(s): Luanda Chaves LINS, Sébastien LIVI, Manuel MARÉCHAL, Jannick DUCHET-RUMEAU, Jean-François GÉRARDAbstractThe ability of different microstructures from ionic liquids (ILs) governed by anions and cations has been a source of curiosity for composite systems. In this present study, the structural behavior of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) mixed with phosphonium- and imidazolium- based ionic liquids (1 wt%) combined with different counter anions was investigated. The effect of the chemical nature of the cation ...

Objective: For patients with gastroparesis, temporary pyloric disruption has been shown to improve symptoms and gastric emptying. Per-oral pyloromyotomy (POP) is an innovative endoscopic procedure to divide the pylorus from within a submucosal tunnel, as a corollary to surgical pyloromyotomy. Here we evaluate subjective and objective outcomes 12-weeks after POP at a high volume center. Methods: The first 100 consecutive patients undergoing POP were included, with procedure dates between January 2016 and October 2017. Patients were evaluated using the Gastroparesis Cardinal Symptom Index (GCSI), and 4-hour solid-phase ...

Typical food store in Brazzaville, Congo. Credit: WHOBy Adelheid Onyango and Bibi GiyoseBRAZZAVILLE, Congo, Aug 14 2018 (IPS)When faced with a crisis, our natural reaction is to deal with its immediate threats. Ateka* came to the make-shift clinic with profuse diarrhoea: they diagnosed cholera. The urgent concern in the midst of that humanitarian crisis was to treat the infection and send her home as quickly as possible. But she came back to the treatment centre a few days later – not for cholera, but because she was suffering from severe acute malnutrition. Doctors had saved her life but not restored her health. And...

Authors: Rizzello F, Mazza M, Salice M, Calabrese C, Calafiore A, Campieri M, Gionchetti P Abstract INTRODUCTION: Beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP) is a second-generation corticosteroid that use novel drug technologies to ensure colonic targeting and potentially reducing systemic corticosteroid concentrations. It is approved for treatment of patients with mild-to-moderate ulcerative colitis (UC) who do not respond to mesalazine. The gut-selective mechanism of action has the potential to improve the safety profile of beclomethasone dipropionate compared to other conventional corticosteroids. Areas covered: We review...
