Gluten Allergy and Oats
50% of my patients have autoimmune conditions, and unfortunately, they are on the rise. It is amazing how one “cheat” on gluten can completely throw them into a flare-up. With that said, that flare-up can be a very good learning tool.
Gluten can break down the junctions between the cells in the gastrointestinal tract leading to more food allergies. Most people are unaware that hemp and oats, despite being gluten-free, can lead to food allergy reactions with gluten-sensitive people because of their molecular structure and similarity to gluten.
