Gluten Intolerance Remedy in Manhattan, New York City

Non celiac gluten intolerance is a serious problem igniting chronic inflammation in the body. The inflammation is caused by the immune system attacking the gluten. Basically, the immune system produces antibodies to the gluten.  It sees the gluten as a bacteria, virus, or unwelcomed addition to the body and goes into a frenzy to eradicate it. Each time the body encounters gluten (which could be several times per day in the standard American diet) the immune system is fired up. This produces chronic inflammation which leads to chronic disease processes and a whole host of symptoms.

Gluten prompts the body to release a substance called zonulin, which regulates the permeability of the intestines. Intestinal-lining cells are pried apart by zonulin. Undigested food particles can enter the blood stream. The immune system reacts by releasing inflammatory substances. This is referred to as "leaky gut syndrome". Since, impermeability is decreased; minerals, essential vitamins, and necessary nutrients are not readily absorbed. This leads to underlying nutritional deficiencies. You may think you are eating and reaping the benefits of eating healthy foods, but the body is not absorbing as much of the nutrients as you think.

Another theory and proposed mechanism of how gluten can affect various organ systems involves peptidase enzyme called DPP4. If there is a failure or insufficiency of DPP4, the body can't efficiently breakdown the proteins in gluten. The immune system can be fooled by molecular mimicry as the undigested protein fragment can be mistaken for a virus. As a result of this, antibodies are aimed at the protein and can cause damage to tissues in an auto-immune reaction.

Symptoms of Gluten Intolerance and Celiac Disease

The symptoms that non-celiac gluten intolerance can incite can range from joint pain, anxiety, depression, headaches, fatigue, cramping, stomach pain, indigestion, body aches, rashes, acid reflux, thyroid disorders, infertility, etc.  As you can see these symptoms are so vast and can be related to multiple diseases.

This is where the problem lies in the medical community recognizing this sensitivity as a dire health problem. Since, medicine is primarily focused on symptom relief; the majority of therapies for these symptoms are focused on pharmacology and not possible nutritional causative factors.

Natural Remedy for Gluten Intolerance and Celiac Disease

The best way to test for non-celiac gluten intolerance is through Muscle Testing or blood testing for IgG and IgA. In my practice, I have muscle tested many people who have been blood tested for gluten sensitivity and have been told that they do not have gluten intolerance, and they show up as sensitive to gluten through the muscle test.

This may not be a life long intolerance as there are ways to change how the body responds to gluten. One way is through testing for the right digestive enzyme that will allow the gluten to be broken down properly.
Usually, my patients need to be off gluten for 6 months if not longer and if they are taking corrective nutritional supplementation their bodies can heal and tolerate gluten at some point. There is also a desensitization process that I use to help the body to not respond to gluten in the same way. When gluten intolerance is identified, a person must refrain from eating even small amounts of gluten. The person will start feeling better in about one week.

The body is so resilient and has an innate ability to heal itself once the stressor has been removed. If a person reintroduces the gluten after being gluten free, without enzymatic support or a desensitization technique, their symptoms will return.

Grains have only been in our diet for about the last 15,000 years or so. There is strong evidence that 15,000 years ago humans subsisted mostly on vegetables and meats. This is not much time in our two million year history. Approximately 30 percent of northern Europeans (those who lived farthest from the origination of dietary grains in Mesopotamia) carry the genes for gluten intolerance.

99 percent of our genetic makeup was already in place before we started consuming grains. Therefore some of us are not able to handle gluten (which is the protein in many grains).  Today, up to 90 percent of the protein in wheat is gluten, a 10 fold increase in the past 100 years. The average American consumes 150 pounds of wheat each year.

Gluten Substitutions

Grains that do not contain gluten are rice, quinoa, buckwheat, millet, amaranth, teff, sorghum, wild rice, and corn.  You can experiment by completely eliminating gluten from your diet for two weeks and replace it with some of these alternatives.

Other major food intolerances include soy, dairy, and corn, but a person can be sensitive to anything. What one person is sensitive to another person may be fine consuming. The majority of these sensitivities are based on genetic factors. One of the main reasons a person feels so energetic when doing a cleanse is that they may be off their major food sensitivity, such as wheat or dairy.
