Gluten Free 1:3

October 2, 2018

This week’s series is about a diet that’s gained momentum over the past 10 years: The Gluten-Free Diet.  We’ll discuss what the diet is, what it effects, and how you may or may not benefit by following the protocol.

Just as any other diet, it is important to not get lost in the advertising, marketing, or one size fits all approach.  Eating clean, whole foods is the ideal way to provide our bodies with the nourishment they require, however if you’re noticing a pattern when you eat certain foods or types, it’s important to listen to these ques and figure out why you’re experiencing symptoms.

The gluten-free diet was created to help individuals afflicted with Celiac Disease, an autoimmune disorder with which only 1% of the population has been diagnosed.  Granted, there may be people who go undiagnosed, however, it is interesting that there is so much marketing and so many gluten-free products for such a minute portion of the population. This week, we’ll talk about who may benefit from avoiding gluten if they suspect a sensitivity or allergy to the protein and why all gluten-free products are not created the same.

Your heart is the greatest healer of your life.  And your soul is the heart of your life.  Let’s start living, folks.  Today starts now.  Until we meet again, this is Dr. Higgins saying, good bye.
