Gluten Problems and Solutions

This book describes how eating cereal grains can cause a spectrum of illness from ambiguous, relatively mild digestive symptoms to more destructive and even life-threatening disease.

Who Should Read This Book

Everyone with undiagnosed illness that involves digestive symptoms, aching, fatigue or anemia should read this book.

Everyone with autoimmune disease should read this book. Everyone with depression and other symptoms of brain dysfunction should read this book.

There is evidence that gluten allergy in some people contributes to or causes asthma, eczema, hives, arthritis, hepatitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, cerebellar ataxia, diabetes 2, depression, migraine headaches, epilepsy, lymphoma and gastrointestinal cancers. There is a distinct possibility that gluten allergy contributes to the development of autism, schizophrenia, several autoimmune disorders and glomerulonephritis. People with any of these diseases should consider diet revision using the gluten-free Alpha Nutrition Program.

Celiac disease is the classic presentation of gluten allergy. Celiac disease occurs at all ages in both men and women. The prevalence of celiac disease in the general population was believed to be 1 in 300, but recent evidence suggests that there are more undiagnosed than diagnosed cases. A revised estimate of the prevalence of celiac disease in the general population is about 1%. We believe that the prevalence of gluten allergy may be closer to 20% of any symptomatic population. Most gluten-sensitive patients have not been diagnosed. We argue that any person with celiac-like symptoms should do diet remission right away and not worry about an exact diagnosis. While the elimination of gluten from the diet is essential, we do not believe this is adequate diet revision to solve all the problems of gluten allergy.

The book Gluten Problems and Solutions is intended to be used with the Alpha Nutrition Program. The program is modular and versatile and can be adapted to a variety of disease conditions where diet and nutrition play a role. This text provides background knowledge, helpful in understanding all forms of Wheat Allergy, Celiac Disease, the association with delayed pattern food allergy and the relevance of diet revision. The Alpha Nutrition Program is successful in managing the delayed patterns of food allergy because gluten is eliminated along with other high-risk proteins, especially milk and eggs. The best way to evaluate this approach to Gluten Disease is to order the the Starter Pack Option.
