Could your health and your weight improve with the removal of gluten-containing products from your diet? You could do a blood test to find out if you are reacting to gluten or you could remove gluten for a couple of weeks and then reintroduce it, taking note of your symptoms. Gluten can take a while to get out of your system though.
What you don’t want to do, is remove processed, white flour products and replace them with the over processed, highly sweetened and unhealthy products found in the gluten-free aisle at the supermarket. Removing processed grains from your diet will help your PCOS, your weight around the middle, your moodiness (and 300 gluten related symptoms) if you work on replacing the grains with vegetables, healthy fats and good quality proteins.
Here’s what Dr Tom O’Bryan, host of The Gluten Summit (starting 11 November 2013, US time – 12th here in Oz till the 17th November) has to say:
“Though we sometimes talk light heartedly about gluten-related disorders and the impacts they have on people’s lives–humor can be healing, as you know–the fact of the matter is that only a small percentage of the population has been diagnosed with a gluten-related disorder, and a very large portion of the population has symptoms that may be caused by a sensitivity to gluten… with no idea that gluten is the culprit fueling their symptoms.
I’ll say that again…
More than 300 symptoms could be caused
by the consumption of gluten, yet a very
small percentage of the population
knows it could be fueling the cause.
That, my friends, is the ultimate reason why “A Grain of Truth: The Gluten Summit” is so important: To help those potentially return to health who have no idea what is fueling their ailments, including you.
Do you know someone—a friend, family member, even yourself—who thinks they may be sensitive to gluten or with any of the following symptoms:
- Brain fog?
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?
- Unexplained rashes?
- Tummy aches?
- Constipation or diarrhea?
- Thyroid problems?
- Unexplained weight loss (or gain)?
- Joint pain?
- Dental defects?
- A child’s failure to thrive or shortened stature?
All of these, AND MORE, could be caused by gluten in one’s diet.”
I highly encourage you to register for this Summit. It’s FREE and it brings together experts from around the world, all talking about gluten. You have 24 hours to listen to recordings of the interviews and you can even buy the whole set if you want to.
