Dr. Jason Fung: "Holy consensus, Batman. With so many 'experts' from Michelle Obama to the USDA to virtually all of the medical professionals (including doctors and dieticians) agreeing that 'Eat Less, Move More' is the way to go, you might think that it is 100% unquestionably true. But here's a queer thought... if we all agree that we know the cure for obesity, and we've spent billions on educations and programs - why are we getting fatter? In other words, why does this 'cure' suck so bad?

When you put it like that! :)

I have long been trying to remove wheat/gluten from my diet, but it's difficult at the moment, notwithstanding the cravings I get for the stuff!

I sometimes wish I had a more consistent lifestyle so I could better regulate and control what I eat at what time of the day suits me.

Thanks for the article- very interesting!

THANK YOU for this link, Rachel!

No one in our house is formally diagnosed with Celiac Disease (an autoimmune disease), but we all are severely gluten in tolerant.

While I am convinced after 3 years of research that gluten isn't good for anyone, I still wonder about the possibility of heritage grains prepared in traditional ways (sourdough). I would like to try this, but I haven't wanted to experiment and undo all fo the healing we've manged to attain. This article give me hope, and another avenue to pursue.

Just some background information: you don't need to have celiac disease (or non-gluten intolerance) to be adversely affected by gluten (and the average doctor remains as uninformed of this as is the average person). Most people are woefully ignorant of the magnitude of the issue.

50% of people with Celiac Disease don't have overt GI symptoms.
30% of people suffering from leaky gut (pathogenic intestinal permeability) don't have GI symptoms.

"Non-celiac gluten sensitivity is as much as 20 times more prevalent than is Celiac Disease (accounts for 1% of the western population). As many as 20 out of 100 people will have non-celiac gluten insensitivity, yet testing for Celiac/NCGI is woefully unreliable, and is only accurate in the presence of acute disease (once the intestinal villa have been completely destroyed), so most people affected by Celiac/NCGI remain undiagnosed."

"NO ONE can completely digest gluten.

This has been discovered numerous times by experts and is well established in the literature." ...and gut distress is the LEAST common indicator of gut dammage, and gluten-intolerance/sensitivity.

"Whether you get [immediate and observable] symptoms or not [no matter who you are], every time you eat wheat you get intestinal permeability. Every.Time."

"The fastest growing cells in the body live in the intestinal wall. You eat toast for breakfast, you damage your intestinal wall, it heals. You eat a sandwich for lunch, you damage your intestinal wall, it heals. You eat pasta for dinner, you damage your intestinal wall, it heals; and some day, somewhere down the road... weeks, months, years down the road... you cross a threshhold and you don't heal anymore. Now you've got pathogenic intestinal permeability."

...and now you realize you are ill... you have any number of conditions to sort though... heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes, adrenal fatigue, serious hormonal issues, infertility, depression/anxiety becomes your constant companion, you are significantly minerally/nutritionally depleated and things start to go wrong at a cellular/enzymatic level, none of your body's critical processes function as they should but nothing pathological comes up in testing... and it is very difficult to recognise that it all traces back to that toast, sandwhich and pasta.

"Pathogenic permeability (leaky gut) is the gateway to the development of all autoimmune disease... and ALL disease begins with autoimmune dis-ease."

Parkinson's begins in the gut.
Alzheimer's begins in the gut.
Depression begins in the gut (90% of serotonin is produced in your gut, not in your brain... the brain and gut are always 'talking' to each other).
Anxiety begins in the gut.
Mental illness begins in the gut.
Heart disease begins in the gut.
Liver disease begins in the gut.
Skin issues begin in the gut.
Compromised immunity begins in the gut.
Neurological disease begins in the gut.
Thyroid disease begins in the gut.
Infertility begins in the gut.
FAT/obesity is a symptom of inflammation and autoimmune disruption and begins in the gut."

If you heal the gut, you extend the quality of your life dramatically... and it is never too late to improve the quality of your health.

From Dr. Thomas O'Bryan:

...and this is why fermenting has become our new family hobby... hands down, the best way to heal the gut and improve health!

I can't believe the number of people I know that have this problem- there doesn't seem to be a consistent reason why people are affected, either. Good link, Rachel.
