Suffering from Coeliac disease?
Do you feel bloated all the time, or are you suffering from any type of digestive problem, such as; Irritable bowel syndrome, Ulcerative colitis, constipation, loose stools, etc.? Then why not give your digestive system a break from eating foods containing gluten.
You may be gluten intolerant
Unfortunately, for many of us, wheat, rye, barley, spelt, and for some people, oats, have become terribly indigestible. These grains have been genetically modified to the point where the body does not recognise them as being real foods anymore.
As the digestive system struggles to break down these ‘Frankenstein foods’ (as they are commonly known), in order to absorb the nutrients, the immune system begins to suffer and eventually becomes compromised. Therefore allowing a whole host of other health problems to arise.
What you can do
Why not try and replace those troublesome grains with some highly nutritious ones such as:
- brown rice
- polenta (corn)
Be creative, and have fun trying these new flavours and textures in your recipes. Once you start to regain your energy and feel great again, you won’t want to go back to your previous eating habits.
Coeliac disease (gluten intolerance) can affect any part of the body. So please do not ignore persistent signs and symptoms of headaches, fatigue, skin rash, bloating, over active bladder, etc. Get an allergy test done, or as I said before, just take a break from eating these foods for at least two to three weeks to see how you feel.
