All my life I have had trouble with my digestive system and thought I had ulcers. It wasn’t until the early 2000′s, I found out about Celiac Disease and what all it entailed.
Celiac Disease affects people differently and the symptoms are so varied that it’s hard for doctors to diagnose. They usually rule it as something else and when tests are run, they come back normal, and you’re told everything’s all right. However, you can feel everything’s not quite right and something’s wrong. They thought I was crazy, and in fact, I was beginning to doubt myself.
Our food in the western world is so over processed that things are taken out and stuff is added back in. We have re-engineered our food to the point that our grandparents wouldn’t recognize it, let alone eat it. That’s why I wanted to create this site and share what I’ve experienced and the ways I’m dealing with the problem.
It has been said that 97% of people that have Celiac Disease don’t know they have it and have never heard of it.
What Is It?
It’s an intolerance to gluten, which is found in grains such as wheat, rye, barley and oats. They put it in just about everything from medications to soy sauce.
The best thing to do is read the labels and buy as little processed foods as possible and then ask the manufacturers online if it has gluten in it. I did that with Del Monte and got a nice reply stating that their Tomato Sauce didn’t have gluten but their Spaghetti Sauce with Meat, did.
The next best thing is to do as much of your own cooking as possible. That way you know what’s in it. I realize that takes time and most people don’t have time to do that with their busy schedules.
Grocery stores are devoting some space for Gluten-Free items and there are Health Food Stores that specialize in it. Ordering online is also another alternative.
The best book that I’ve read and recommend to people learning about Celiac Disease is by Peter H. r. Green, M.D., and Rory Jones, “Celiac Disease A Hidden Epidemic”
Products that have helped me the most:
First of all, understanding what Celiac Disease is and how a gluten -free diet can help was my main goal in dealing with my situation.
After about three years of trying to stay on a gluten-free diet, I am starting to notice some positive progress.
Due to the brain damage caused by Celiac Disease, I experienced symptoms of dementia. Approximately, two weeks after using the Nano Co Q10 these symptoms disappeared. The Nano Co Q10 also energizes the bodies major organs and helps regenerate the damage caused by other illnesses as well.
It’s Important To Read Labels:
Product Labels including:
Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein (HVP)
Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP)
Usually contain and/or gluten / soy proteins.
In addition, other ingredients that most likely include gluten are:
- Hydrolyzed Plant Protein (HPP) Vegetable (HVP)
- Vegetable Protein (VP)
- Modified Food Starch (MFS)
There are many resources available online, so people can learn more about health issues and what they can do about them.
Celiac Disease is a good resource site.
The Gluten Free Mall is a good place to find hard to find gluten free products.
There are many sources for Gluten-Free Recipes, many can be found for free online. However, good recipe books are always a welcome addition to your library.
