Stories on Being Gluten-Free

To define: WHAT IS “GLUTEN FREE?”

Gluten Free refers to a dietary preference, whether it be by medical necessity or personal preference.  The intent of the diet is to avoid gluten which is a broad name for a group of particular proteins present in, but not restricted to grains like wheat, rye, barley and spelt.

Gluten has been identified as a neurotoxin linked to a broad range of negative health impacts in human beings. Celiac disease is directly caused by the ingestion of gluten in certain gluten sensitive individuals.  However, gluten has also been linked to the exacerbation of a range of degenerative disorders including Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus and many other debilitating conditions. A diet free of gluten and casein (which has a similar molecular structure to gluten) has been shown to better manage symptoms of Autism and ADHD in diagnosed individuals.
