Grains That Cause Illness


Eating grain products - breads, cakes, cereals - have long been consider a healthy choice. If you look at the RDA recommendations, grains, at the bottom of the pyramid, are what you should be eating the most of to maintain a healthy body.

The RDA's recommendations do not consider any food to be harmful for you. You must remember that the RDA's recommendations come from a government agency and indicating a particular food could be harmful to your health could financially affect that industry. The government does not want to destroy any industry even if it is harmful to your health. Just look at the smoking industry. It's still alive.

In medical and alternative medicine circles, celiac disease is well known for being the cause of numerous detrimental body conditions. In its basic form, celiac disease is the damage of the intestinal lining by gluten proteins, which come from grains - the bottom of the pyramid.Let's get technical for a moment and say that the specific proteins in gluten that damage the intestine are called "gliadin."

What you need to know about gliadin is that when you eat it, it acts like an invading substance, which activates your body's immune system to destroy and eliminate the invader - your favorite food bread and cereals.Eating an excess of gluten causes celiac disease. Where is gluten found? It is found in products made from wheat, rye, barley, kamut, triticale, oats, and spelt.

It is now well established in medicine that 1 in approximately 100 have celiac disease. Many have the disease without having any symptoms. The continual use of and eating of detrimental grains will eventually bring on symptoms. People with celiac disease can expect to have illnesses associated or connected with:

* cancer

* epilepsy

* attention deficit disorders

* auto immune diseases

* osteoporosis

* brain disorders

* neurological diseases

* premature death

* premature births

* chronic liver diseases

* gastrointestinal problems

* food allergies

* chronic fatigue

* malnutrition

* and the list goes on and on

When the intestinal lining is damage by gluten, your overall health is damaged. Your immune system is activated to prevent further intestinal damage causing your overall response to other body crisis to diminish. Your ability to fight off other diseases is diminished. Your ability to absorb nutrients from your food is reduced leading to nutritional deficiencies.

How does gluten create so many problems in the body? As gluten moves into the intestine, it is digested and broken down into small protein molecules - peptides (which consist of 2-3 amino acids bound together) and free amino acids. Amino acids are the basic building blocks the make up protein. Once digestion is complete, peptides and free amino acids easily move into the intestinal wall cell structure and then into your blood stream. This is what happens in a healthy person.

Over many years of eating gluten, the intestinal cell structure deteriorates. Digested protein no longer passes through the cells walls but passes between cells and into the blood. These holes in the intestinal walls is what is know as "leaky gut syndrome"

Because of the existence of these tiny holes in the intestinal wall, harmful substances can pass into the blood and settle into your organs and cells causing irritations and damage. Your intestinal wall is no longer a barrier keeping out unwanted substances from your blood and body.

Undigested foods can now enter your body creating food allergies. Toxins from various foods - dyes, preservatives, food additives, artificial flavors - can now enter you blood stream. Pathogens such as bacteria, worms, fungus and viruses can also enter your body and invade your organs. When this happens, you will slowly come down with a variety of symptoms and illnesses that you cannot attribute to anything specific.Absorption of undigested proteins is a major threat to the health of your organs and to your immune system.

It is estimated that up to 40% of all people have some intestinal damage from eating gluten and are passing undigested proteins into their blood stream.

There are some of you that do not have the enzymes to digest gluten. Those of you have what is called "gluten sensitivity." Those of you that have the enzymes to digest gluten are not as prone to celiac disease and have less damage to your intestinal wall.

So what are the foods that you should be eliminating from your eating habits?

* wheat starch, wheat grass, wheat germ oil, wheat triticum

* bread flour, brewer's yeast, bran, brown flour

* oats, oat straw,

* baking powder, edible starch, germ, gum base, dextrin

* malt, rice malt,

* rye, spelt, kamut, wheat, bleached flour, couscous, pearl barley, bulgar

*soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, shoyu, miso

* durum wheat triticum, semolina, emolina triticum

* beer

* blue cheese

One natural remedy for Celiac is Cardamon, which is found in India. It has been used successful in treating Celiac disease in children.

Not all is known about the effects of gluten on your body and how it creates illness. What is known is that gluten is responsible for celiac disease and many other diseases that result from having celiac.Don't always believe what the government says about food. Their interest is in economics and not in your health.
