Yoga And Celiac Disease

I was diagnosed with celiac disease ("celiac") in 2012. As a result, my life changed dramatically. What I thought would be a diet change turned out to be a lifestyle change affecting every part of my life - family, social, travel, and work. My symptoms ranged from the traditional gastrointestinal symptoms to extreme fatigue, lactose intolerance, and vitamin D insufficiency. Four years later, planning and preparing meals and monitoring and managing symptoms are now a normal part of my daily life. The new normal. Celiac is a genetic, systemic autoimmune disorder caused by exposure to gluten. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. The immune response activated in celiac when gluten is ingested causes the body to attack gluten as if it is an antigen. This immune response causes damage to the villi within the small intestine. According to the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center, there are approximately 200 hundred recognized symptoms of celiac, including cancer, infertility, and depression. Celiac affects 1 in 133 people in the U.S. Currently, the only available and medically accepted treatment for celiac disease is the strict adherence to a gluten-free diet. Patients with celiac must avoid ingestion and in some cases physical contact with anything that contains or has come in contact with gluten (wheat, barley, or rye). This includes food, cosmetics, beauty products, cleaning supplies, and medications that contain gluten. Exposure to gluten from ...

Authors: Steckiewicz KP, Barcińska E, Woźniak M Abstract Nerve growth factor (NGF) is protein discovered by Rita Levi Montalcini in the 1950s. It plays a crucial role in the development of nervous system. NGF may be produced by a variety of cells even beyond nervous system. NGF modulate cell metabolism by binding to p75NTR and TrkA receptors. NGF is involved in psychological processes and may be the possible therapeutical agent for diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular diseases, which will be described in the article.
