Wheat Linked to Indigestion
New research performed out of the Hospital San Jorge in the Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology in Huesca, Spain showed an association between indigestion and wheat sensitivity.
Main gastrointestinal symptoms associated with wheat allergies and sensitivities:
- Early feeling of having enough to eat
- Fullness after a meal
- Nausea, recurrent retching and/or vomiting
- Upper abdominal bloating
- Upper abdominal discomfort aggravated by food
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- chronic constipation and/or diarrhea
- Spasmodic diarrhea
- Abdominal pain
- Gas and bloating
- Mucous in stool
Why wheat is so harmful?
- It contains 23,000 biomolecules, thus increasing the chance of allergy due to the many different molecule sequences it contains.
- It contains a molecule labeled 33-mer which is almost identical to pertactin, the toxic sequence found in whooping cough
- Up-regulates zonulin in the digestive tract leading to intestinal permeability (leaking gut) where harmful stomach contents can get into our blood system causing many adverse effects.
- Gluten has been linked to over 300 adverse health effects
