Symptoms of gluten intolerance or non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) may include:

  • Digestive and IBS symptoms such as abdominal pain, cramping, bloating, constipation or diarrhea
  • Difficulty concentrating, “brain fog” and problems remembering information
  • Frequent headaches
  • Mood changes, such as anxiety and increased depressive symptoms
  • Persistently low energy and chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Numbness and tingling in hands and feet
  • Reproductive problems and infertility
  • Skin problems including dermatitis, eczema, rosacea and skin rashes also known as “gluten rash” or “gluten intolerance rash”.

Gluten intolerance is associated with a risk of learning and concentration disorders, including autism and ADHD. In addition, there may be a higher risk of neurological and psychiatric diseases, including dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

How is it possible that gluten can cause so many different problems? Despite what most people think, gluten intolerance (and celiac disease) is more than just a digestive problem. This is because studies show that gluten-free celiac disease sensitivity can cause significant changes in the gut microbiome, increasing the number of pathogenic microbes. This is a big problem considering that our overall health is largely dependent on the health of our gut.

Keep in mind that gluten is not the only factor that can cause digestive problems. Common dairy products, nuts, seafood and eggs can also cause sensitivities or food allergies.

Like stress and other factors, but only by trying and listening to your body and how you feel can you get to the right culprit.

For each health problem, you need to adjust and find a suitable menu. In order for it to be maximally effective, you should always start by looking for blood tests and consulting with a nutritionist to find out what substances are lacking and what consequences it can cause!

Gluten is a large protein molecule composed of many peptides. At least fifty of them have been found to destroy epithelial cells in the gut, disrupting immune function and causing “leaky gut” syndrome.

Gluten sensitivity and celiac disease are completely different – gluten sensitivity is more common than celiac disease.

But many people who suspect they have a gluten sensitivity may have stomach problems from other components of grains besides gluten. This also explains why many gluten-free diets do not reduce stomach upset.

Many people who have experimented with a grain-free diet report health benefits.

A grain-free diet is usually attempted when an individual suffers from irritable bowel syndrome, celiac disease, another autoimmune disease, or certain psychiatric illnesses.

In addition to gluten, FODMAP carbohydrates can be the cause (this can be discussed another time).

Gluten-related disorders, including celiac disease and NCGS, don’t just affect the gastrointestinal tract. Recent research conducted over the last few decades has shown that symptoms of gluten intolerance can appear in almost every system of the body:

  • in the central nervous system (including the brain),
  • in the endocrine system,
  • cardiovascular system (including cardiovascular health),
  • in the reproductive system and even
  • in the skeletal system

PAY ATTENTION TO THIS TOO: Pesticides containing gliophosate (such as Roundup) can promote the development of celiac disease and cause intestinal problems. Glyophosate is used as a pesticide, especially on cereals, genetically modified soybeans and corn.
