Here’s what we now know from research: Gluten increases inflammation in everyone. It increases the risk of heart disease in everyone, increases insulin resistance and diabetes, as well as increases the risk of auto-immune diseases. That’s a pretty comprehensive list of what you want to avoid as you age.
We also know that one gram of gluten – one tiny gram – stays in your system for two weeks, affecting your inflammation markers for six months. Gluten is a very sticky substance; it’s glue-y. In fact, glue is made from it.
So here’s my “Challenge” to all my health seekers. I would like you to avoid all foods that contain gluten – yup, go 100% gluten-free for just three (3) weeks. That’s not forever; it would be just a fair trial. You will be amazed at the symptoms that will disappear; including some of them you’ve attributed to “normal aging” or believed they were just normal for you.
Remember: you have to be 100% gluten-free during that time in order to test the hypothesis.
If you are still not convinced, after the 3 weeks, simply go ahead and spend one day eating gluten: bagels, cereal, pasta, bread…. Your body’s reaction will surprise you. You should be convinced gluten-free is the way to go.
I’ve personally witnessed friends, family members and thousands of clients go gluten-free and feel dramatically better.
Are you wondering if it will help you too?
For all of you that will decide to take my “Gluten-Free Challenge”; I want to hear all about it. Please leave your comments!
In the meantime, here’s wishing you a happy, healthy day.
