Understanding Celiac Disease and Wheat-Gluten Sensitivity

There is a lot of info out there today about wheat and gluten sensitivities. But do you know the latest stats say that most people don’t know they are gluten and/or wheat sensitive let alone that they may have celiac disease, either the total version or the on the edge version?

Celiac disease is a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. People who have celiac disease cannot tolerate a protein called gluten which is found in wheat, rye, barley (malt) and possibly oats. When people with celiac disease eat foods containing gluten, their immune system responds by damaging the small intestine. Specifically, tiny fingerlike protrusions, called villi, on the lining of the small intestine are lost. Nutrients from food are absorbed into the bloodstream through these villi. Without villi, a person becomes malnourished – – regardless of the quantity of food eaten.  AND regardless of the amount of supplements they ingest.  This was me. 

Because the body’s own immune system causes the damage, celiac disease is considered an autoimmune disorder. However, it is also classified as a disease of malabsorption because nutrients are not absorbed.

All of this can be very confusing if you are not on top of all the latest research. Then you need to decipher whose data is real and legitimate (without bias) vs whose data is slighted because of conflicts of interest! Again, this was me.  BUT not anymore. Follow me, Coach D, as I dive into this informative and possibly life-changing topic.

I also say that when it comes to food, eat food in its purest form. Know your local farmer.  Learn how to process and store natural foods so when winter rolls around, you are not without great nutrient-rich food.  Find recipes that combine only wholefood ingredients. Find substances that are natural thickeners like Kuzu Root Starch or Agar Agar Sea Vegetable Flakes. Stay away from most corn starch and flour for thickening. Experiment with your crock pot. Cut up sweet potatoes in fry fashion and mix them in a bag of egg whites and salt. Then bake them on a cookie sheet that is covered with a little coconut oil. Bake at 400 degrees until desired crispness is obtained. Find healthy, in-season, fruits and eat them for dessert. Baked apples are wonderful and there are recipes galore AND baking apples (cored) and sprinkling them with cinnamon leaves a wonderful smell throughout your home.
