Going Gluten Free

  1. 1. Going Gluten Free?Here are a few ideas to make it easy Dr. Nancy Doreo, DC Health Coach ® Detox 360 Program www.drdoreo.comThis information is intended for educational purposes only. It is not meant to replace medical care or diagnose or treat any medical condition.
  2. 2. What is Gluten? • Gliadin is a substance found in some grains that triggers an immune response in sensitive individuals. Gluten is a misnomer, the proper name is Gliadin. Genetics/Injury/Illness all play a part in sensitivity. • Until now testing for gluten intolerance has only been against one of those components, alpha gliadin. Testing in the past has only been 30% accurate. • It also has been discovered wheat is made up of more than 100 different components that can cause a reaction, not just one. • Cyrex Labs Array 3: Wheat/Gluten Proteome Sensitivity and Autoimmunity Have your Dr go to: www.cyrexlabs.com • More than one wheat protein can cause gluten-intolerance — Cyrex Labs tests for twelve • This new test greatly expands the parameters of gluten intolerance testing, catching those who may have previously tested negative because they don’t react to the alpha gliadin.This information is intended for educational purposes only.

  3. 3. Why A Gluten Free Lifestyle? • Genetics: HLA DQ 2/8 genes are often found in celiacs and non celiacs alike. The presence of the gene does not guarantee gluten intolerance • Injury: Injury to the gut lining from drugs, antibiotics, infection, poor diet can lead to gluten intolerance following gut permeability • Illness: The gut lining will be compromised at times, tearing down the normal barrier to the blood stream. Gluten intolerance can ensue when the immunes system attacks large molecules of unprocessed foods.This information is intended for educational purposes only.

  5. 5. How Bad Can It Be? • Opioid testing • Some people have enzymes in their digestive tract that break gluten down into opioids that act like heroin or morphine. Embarking on a gluten-free diet can cause terrible withdrawal symptoms in these people. One practitioner tells of a patient whose withdrawal symptoms were so severe she went to the emergency room. • Array 3 also tests whether gluten has a drug-like opiate effect on an individual. • If present, it means the response has made it to the brain.This information is intended for educational purposes only.

  6. 6. Preparing Your Own • Preparing your own food at home in a gluten free environment is the only way to be certain you are not being contaminated • Some options for gluten free foods can now be found at many grocery markets and all health food stores • Keep in mind: NOT ALL GLUTEN FREE LABELS ARE TOTALLY GLUTEN FREE ITEMS • BE VERY CAREFUL IF YOU ARE A CELIACThis information is intended for educational purposes only.
