On gluten, mindful meditation and colon cleansing
I live in LA now. Well, not in LA but close enough to hear its nutty muttering. Close enough to shop at supermarkets that have entire aisles of gluten free food, attend "mindful meditation" sessions at a number of locations, and experience the promotion of a constant stream of colon cleanses, all meant to make me more healthy. LA is not so different from other metro areas. There are plenty of true believers here, but it's not Jesus they are promoting so much as the religion of health. The problem is that there is absolutely no credible evidence that any of these things will make you healthier or live longer. Tak...

Spouses, relatives of celiac disease patients at risk for autoimmune diseases
Both spouses and first-degree relatives of patients with celiac disease are at increased risk of nonceliac autoimmune disease, according to a study. While the excess risk found in celiac first-degree relatives can be explained by genetics, the higher risk in spouses points to the impact of environmental factors. It is also possible that spouses share microbiome characteristics with their husband/wife, which might impact the risk of developing and diagnosing other autoimmune diseases.

The riddle of Celiac disease solved?
The cause of celiac disease has been found, researchers claim. Experts estimate that 1% of people have celiac disease. This is a partly hereditary disease that may place considerable strain on patients and their families. The immune system of patients with celiac disease reacts to gluten proteins from cereal grains, causing inflammation of the mucous membrane of the small intestine. This reaction to gluten causes the immune system of celiac patients to attack their own body. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

Fewer People Are Sensitive To Gluten Than Commonly Believed
By Julie Upton for U.S. News It seems as if everyone is going to great lengths to avoid gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and many processed foods. Are there real health benefits associated with going gluten-free, or is it just another passing fad? A recently published study in the journal Digestion found that 86 percent of individuals who believed they were gluten sensitive could tolerate it. Individuals with celiac disease, a hereditary autoimmune condition that affects about 3 million Americans, or roughly 1 percent of the population, must avoid gluten. Those with extremely rare wheat allergies must also r...

Is Gluten Sensitivity Real?
"If you don't have celiac disease, it makes no sense to be on a gluten-free diet," remains a common refrain from physicians and other health care providers who choose to deny the idea that people who don't carry a diagnosis of celiac disease can have health issues from consuming gluten. Nonetheless, the idea that sensitivity to gluten, a protein found in wheat barley and rye, can indeed relate to medical problems has developed incredible traction in our society, as evidenced by the impressive growth in sales of gluten-free foods. Foods labeled as "gluten-free" have increased in sales an average of 34 p...

Gluten-Free Medication Guidelines
For those of us who suffer from seasonal allergies, springtime is synonymous with sinus troubles. As much as 30 percent of the world's population is estimated to suffer from seasonal allergies, also known as allergic rhinitis, and it can often lead to sinus infections. For many, these are easily remedied by antibiotics and a few days of rest. However, as I learned recently, the story doesn't end there for those who suffer from celiac disease. An autoimmune disease affecting approximately 1 in 133 Americans, celiac can be characterized by gastrointestinal issues along with depression, skin problems, and anemia. The only kn...

The Truth About Gluten
Health crazes and diet trends may come and go, but every so often there are advances in the nutrition and medical field that are true game changers. For decades, individuals diagnosed with celiac disease were simply characterized with ghastly gastrointestinal problems, but with further research, this multisystemic autoimmune disorder is now known to be caused by permanent intolerance to gluten, predominantly found in genetically-susceptible individuals. Gluten is the main storage protein of wheat, rye and barley. While gluten is mainly found in foods, shockingly it is even an ingredient in everyday products such as medicin...
