Understanding Celiac Disease and Wheat – Gluten Sensitivity

Posted in Digestion, Digestion, Health, Healthy Alternatives, Knowledge is Power Series, Let Food By Thy Medicine Series, Nutrition, Support Group Meeting Recordings, Teleconferences/Webinars, Weight Loss on 19.05.16


Understanding Celiac Disease and
Wheat – Gluten Sensitivity!

There is a lot of info out there today about wheat and gluten sensitivities.  But do you know the latest stats say that most people don’t know they are gluten and/or wheat sensitive let alone that they may have celiac’s disease, either the full blown version or the “lite” version?

Celiac disease is a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. People who have celiac disease cannot tolerate a protein called gluten which is found in wheat, rye, barley (malt) and possibly oats. When people with celiac disease eat foods containing gluten, their immune system responds by damaging the small intestine. Specifically, tiny fingerlike protrusions, called villi, on the lining of the small intestine are lost. Nutrients from food are absorbed into the bloodstream through these villi. Without villi, a person becomes malnourished – – regardless of the quantity of food eaten.

Because the body’s own immune system causes the damage, celiac disease is considered an autoimmune disorder. However, it is also classified as a disease of malabsorbtion because nutrients are not absorbed. Celiac Disease is also known as celiac sprue, nontropical sprue, and gluten-sensitive enteropathy.

All of this can be very confusing if you are not on top of all the latest research.  Then you need to decipher who’s data is real and legitimate (without bias) vs who’s data is slighted because of conflicts of interest!  Listen to find out some facts about celiac’s disease and wheat and gluten sensitivities. Listen as others share their own experience with Coach D as she dives into this informative and possibly life-changing topic.

Food is our biggest deterrent to great health and wellness.  Stop the yo yo dieting once and for all!  Learn about wheat, gluten and celiac disease!

I might add that when it comes to food, eat food in its purest form.  Find recipes that combine only wholefood ingredients. Find substances that are natural thickeners like Kuzu Root Starch or Agar Agar Sea Vegetable Flakes.  Stay away from corn starch and flour for thickening.  Experiment with your crock pot.  Cut up sweet potatoes in fry fashion and mix them in a bag of egg whites and salt.  Then baken them on a cookie sheet that is covered with a little coconut oil.  Bake at 400 degrees until desired crispness is obtained.  Find healthy, in-season, fruits and eat them for dessert.  Baked apples are wonderful and there are recipes galore.  AND baking apples (cored) and sprinkling them with cinnamon leaves a wonderful smell throughout your home.  Natures room freshener for me!  Listen in for more information and shared conversation from participants…..
