The gluten-free diet is the main treatment for gluten sensitivity and celiac disease. However, removing gluten is not the only thing we must do to regain our health.
Here are the top three things people miss when they go gluten-free. You must do these things in order to achieve good health:
- Reduce Inflammation
Inflammation is one of the main causes of disease. In celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, gluten is regarded as the trigger for inflammation. However, inflammation may persist if gluten has caused a dysfunction that is now triggering its own inflammatory response. The Health Guide tells you which foods to eat and which foods to avoid in order to dampen inflammation. It offers remedies and supplements that will reduce inflammation, so you can heal and recover.
- Identify & Correct Nutrient Deficiencies
Various nutrient deficiencies are the major underlying causes of hundreds of symptoms and health conditions, regardless of whether or not you have a problem with gluten. That said, nutrient deficiencies are frequently overlooked at diagnosis and afterward. Health professionals and patients do not have enough of a background in nutrition to recognize the signs of deficiencies, and generally assume any deficiencies will correct themselves. Our Health Guide will show you which deficiencies are causing your health problems and how to fix them, listing foods that are highest in the missing nutrient and the form of supplements that will benefit you most. It will tell you whether your medications are affecting absorption and what to do about it.
- Connect the Dots Between Symptoms
Most symptoms are related. Unfortunately, we are not taught to think about them this way. Symptoms may stem from the same nutrient deficiency or may affect each other in a cause and effect manner. This leads to cascading symptoms that exacerbate each other. It is vitally important to recognize and track down your symptoms to their sources and then correct the underlying cause. Our Gluten Free Works Treatment Guide does exactly this. It illustrates the relationship between symptoms and the underlying causes affecting them. For example, if you search for migraines, you will find magnesium deficiency listed as a cause. Following the magnesium deficiency link will show you the other symptoms related to magnesium deficiency. This is how you track down your symptoms to their causes, so both you and your doctor can develop your plan of care to fit your needs.
