“Over the last few years, we have seen the correlation of gluten sensitivity as a common initiator of multiple pathologies. From attention deficit hyperactivity disorder to hepatocellular carcinoma, from migraines to recurrent pancreatitis, from cardiomyopathy to numerous autoimmune diseases, we have seen the association of sensitivity to this protein of wheat, rye and barley with the initial manifestation of multiple pathophysiologies.” Dr. Thomas O’Bryan
This Is Your Brain On Gluten
- The British Medical Journal tells us that translational research, research that is going to change the way doctors think, takes an average of 17 years before the doc down the street is using the information.
- It’s been two years since non-Celiac gluten sensitivity has been acknowledged in research, history says it will take 17 years before we all hear about it.
- We think gluten sensitivity is just a gut problem. For every 1 person who has a gut issue, there are 8 who don’t.
- The most common organ to be affected by gluten is the brain.
- 73%, that’s 3 out of 4 people, with gluten sensitivity have lack of blood flow to their brain.
- The leading neurologist and author of Grain Brain, says that any brain disfunction in general is inflammation. It’s fire in the brain. Don’t treat the smoke, you have to put out the fire out.
- Many neurological problems, including headaches and seizures, have at their core anything that can induce inflammation. Front and center is gluten and gluten sensitivity.
- By knowing this we can not only help ourselves but help those we love.
