Have you ever been skeptical of the whole GLUTEN argument?

Ever wonder if it was just a bunch of health-nut-hype?

I’ve been there! And as a daughter of a wheat farmer, I had my reasons for blatantly ignoring the scientific findings around gluten

Before I go any further

What is gluten?

Gluten is found in wheat, rye & barley

It’s a mixture of hundreds of proteins which can be broken up between 2 classes? gliadin (give bread ability to rise during baking) and glutenin (gives dough’s elasticity).

It’s important to know that our modern day wheat products are not the same as those ancient grains

Over the years, we have been genetically selecting hardier wheat plants that produce gluten that can be dissolved in water and create fluffier pastries

Meaning, today’s wheat has a high gluten content that is heavily modified!

This modified gluten protein causes problems with both your gut g\health & immune system, creating a perfect storm for the development of & progression of inflammatory & autoimmune disease

Here are the 3 reasons why gluten should be avoided if you have an autoimmune condition

1. GLUTEN CAUSES LEAKY GUT
2. GLUTEN CAUSES INFLAMMATION
3. GLUTEN MOLECULES LOOK LIKE OUR TISSUE MOLECULES

For a detailed explanation, see our IGTV video below.
