Gluten: What You Don’t Know Might Be Making You Sick

hold-the-glutenIn keeping with our Gluten theme, I want to share with you a great video by Dr. Mark Hyman discussing the pervasiveness and real health threat that gluten poses to all of us.

As mentioned in a previous post, there are different levels of sensitivity to gluten, and just because you haven’t been diagnosed with full-blown celiac disease doesn’t rule out the likelihood that you may have some level of gluten intolerance.

The statistics that Dr. Hyman discusses associating gluten intolerance with shortened life span are sobering and reason enough to find out if you have gluten sensitivity and what you can do to eliminate gluten from your diet.

If you’re interested in more information about the elimination diet that Dr. Hyman mentions in the video, give us a call.
