Chiropractic Andover MN Stomach Ache

NEWS ALERT: You may be suffering from a "Leaky Gut" in Andover MN and not even realize it! Sounds disgusting, right? Well, if you consume: bread, pasta, cereal, chips, crackers, cookies, muffins, pizza, or pitas, you very likely have a Leaky Gut. Why? Because all of these things are made with WHEAT.

The Ideal Diet for Health in Andover MN

According to Dr. Loren Cordain, creator of the Paleo Diet, the human body is NOT designed to digest wheat. Evolutionarily-speaking, wheat was only recently added to the human diet. Our genetics were evolving THOUSANDS of years before this.

Here's the problem. Wheat contains gluten. Gluten irritates the lining of our intestinal wall. This causes the intestinal wall to become permeable, or "leaky". This leaky gut allows intestinal contents like undigested food and bacteria to spill into our body. That spillage sets off a cascade of immunological and inflammatory reactions in the body.

The Damage Gluten Can Do

The above cascade of events triggers most, if not all, forms of Autoimmune Diseases including: Diabetes (type1), Celiac disease, Crohn's disease, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Psoriasis, Rheumatoid arthritis, and Ulcerative colitis. And while it is not technically an Autoimmune Disease, I would suspect Fibromyalgia as well.

Isn't it interesting what happens when we put things into our bodies that don't belong there… and then try to convince ourselves that it is "food"? How much of the Standard American Diet contains WHEAT? I challenge you to audit your own diet for the next week. Look on the food labels for anything containing wheat. What percentage of your meals contain wheat?

By the way, since we're talking about triggers of Leaky Gut, here are a few other culprits: alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen, Tylenol, oral contraceptives, and antacids.
