Gluten Sensitivity

The Condition Of The Gut Dictates The Degree Of Gluten Sensitivity!

Gut health plays a role in how the body reacts to certain foods. Gluten and any food sensitivity has an issue with gut function. Naturopathy will uncover this!

Gluten Sensitivity Can Be The Cause Of Many Conditions From Fatigue To A Myriad Of Gut issues And Chronic Inflammation!

Carbohydrate foods such as barley, rye, grains etc. contain gluten which is a protein molecule and belongs to the family of prolamins and glutelins. This protein molecule when ingested can trigger a reaction in some people. While there are several types of gluten sensitivities, the mechanism of each is different and people are advised to stay away from gluten-based foods. 

The symptoms of gluten sensitivity are: 

Inflammation of the small intestine is seen after eating foods that contain this protein, in some cases. This inflammation leads to poor absorption of nutrients and it results in diarrhoea and faeces that have a peculiar and bad smell

Skin reactions such as psoriasis or even dermatitis herpetiformis is seen 

Mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression are seen due to neurotransmitters such as serotonin being affected or the populations of bad bacteria in the gut increasing

Bloating, Stomach pain, Fatigue and Brain fog

What Is The Difference Between A Food Allergy And Intolerance?

Food intolerances are different from food allergies in the sense that the symptoms and mechanisms by which the two occur are unique. While a food allergy triggers the immune system and causes a typical reaction that would occur if the body encountered a pathogen or dust or pollen, a food intolerance triggers the digestive system. Food allergies can be severe or often even life-threatening while intolerances are milder, although notorious in their own way. 

Another difference between allergies and intolerances is the amount of trigger needed to offset a reaction. While allergic reactions are seen even in cases that a person is mildly exposed to the allergen or microscopic amounts of it, someone with food intolerance can afford to eat a little of the food without experiencing any major symptoms.

What Are The Different Types Of Gluten Sensitivity?

Gluten intolerance is seen in people who either lack the enzyme that aids in the digestion of it or whose immune systems are averse to it. This forms the basis for the types of gluten sensitivity. 

Celiac disease: This is an autoimmune condition. When a person eats foods that contain the protein, the immune cells and antibodies attack the small intestine and the fingerlike projections or villi that are present in the area aiding with the absorption of nutrients. When these villi are attacked, it hinders the absorption of the nutrients and causes a host of problems. Those who have celiac disease are advised to stay away from gluten entirely. 

Gluten sensitivity: In this case, the immune system is not involved and the condition causes a difficulty in processing the protein in the diet. The symptoms include bloating, diarrhoea, stomach ache, nausea etc. No damage to the small intestine is seen through an endoscopy. 

Wheat allergy: The symptoms of a wheat allergy are wheezing, rashes, sneezing, and in some cases anaphylaxis. The condition is one wherein the immune system perceives the protein to be an allergen.

Seek Natural Help For Gluten Sensitivity!

Often, the effects of gluten sensitivity worsen due to poor gut health. Leaky gut can also be what follows due to the lining of the gut being affected. This then causes toxins to find their way into the bloodstream and causes disease. Thus, the symptoms of intolerance can lead to further complications. 

Naturopath Domenic Pisanelli first identifies whether it is absolutely essential for this protein to be eliminated from the diet or if the limit of intake can be lessened. For a food item to be termed as gluten-free, it must contain as low as 30 parts per million of gluten. In certain cases, an even lower amount can trigger symptoms. 

In the case of celiac disease, the naturopathic intervention will enable you to still be set with a wholesome tasty diet that is devoid of protein but does not compromise on nutritional value. Once the main root has been dealt with, efforts are taken to better gut health, probiotics to restore the gut flora, and heal the lining of the intestine. Once done, the other side effects of gluten intolerance will be managed such as mental health disorders and the anxiety that is experienced as a result.
