I was doing research for a gluten free class that I am teaching
I found a very informative video called The Truth About Gluten and just finished watching it. I am sharing it because it is the best video I have ever seen about why everyone ( not just those with Celiac) need to stop eating wheat. This post is part of my series called Informative Friday - but I had to post it early this week.
Dr. Den Doer explains how our wheat industry has changed the actual wheat plants that produce the wheat that we eat . Today's wheat is now being grown with 4 times the amount of gluten and 4 times the amount of starch that it used to have. Dr. Doer calls today's wheat, " Frankenwheat". He says it doesn't matter if you eat Twinkies or whole wheat grain bread. Today's wheat is so full of gluten and starch that converts so fast to sugar, it is setting us up for inflammation and degenerative disease like diabetes and heart disease.
If you are already on a gluten free diet, why am I recommending this video?
Because Dr. Den Doer explains that just stopping gluten is not enough- once the damage is done, you need to repair your digestive and elimination systems or your system will remain compromised and so will your health. Dr. Den Doer gives very valuable information and suggestions for making the repairs.
He explains that by the time a person has full blown Celiac Disease, it is the end of the line when all the damage is already done . He explains that gluten intolerance or sensitivity is the beginning and can affect ANYONE and ANY PART part of the body because it is an inflammation. He also addresses why just going on a gluten free diet will stop the progress , but not repair.
If you have ANY health issue, or experience fatigue, headaches, MS, anxiety, depression, joint pain, eczema, or anything - you need to understand the role that gluten contributes.
In addition, if you do follow a gluten free diet, you need to understand how to repair the damage to your digestive system that has already be done and my still be affecting you and compromising your health.
The video is 1 hour and 20 minutes. It is well worth taking the time to watch.
If you watch the video , please come back and leave a comment . I would love to know what you think.
Also : The book, Wheat Belly, helps you understand the dangers of today's new wheat !- our wheat is not the same as 40 years ago . It has been genetically modified, and changed into a grain that has 4 times the gluten and 4 times the starch of the grain your grandparents ate. This means starch turns to sugar and a piece of bread now gives you 4 times the amount of sugar than it did 40 years ago . Wonder why so many people have allergies ? Wonder why so many people are pre- diabetic or diabetic, have heart disease or other diet related diseases. This wheat is not even a real food. It is a creation of modern manufacturing. This book gives a great argument for everyone cutting out wheat. It's a must read.
