Gluten sensitivity

 In General

Many people are reporting non-coeliac, gluten sensitivity, causing uncomfortable bloating after eating.

Increasingly information indicates that this may be due to a condition called ‘leaky gut’. The intestinal wall should have small holes to allow small molecules of digested protein to enter the blood steam to be carried round the body. Leaky gut is a condition where the lining of the intestinal wall develops larger holes. These holes may be caused by the overgrowth of candida a yeast contained in most breads. As the candida grows it produces mycelia, long outgrowths which enlarge the small holes allowing large molecules of undigested protein entering the blood stream. This causes problems in the body which is not designed to deal with these larger molecules.
