A Sticky Situation

You are not only what you eat, but also what you absorb and assimilate. I encourage our patients and clients worldwide to eat whole food, and remember that food should be your medicine and medicine is your food.

The question is: What happens in the colon? Do you know that gluten, common in wheat, rye, and oats, may be interfering with your absorption and even creating adrenal gland fatigue? I know this because we can assess your adrenal health and the impact that gluten has on your health via a saliva test. I do not encourage wheat products. I know so many are proud of the fact they stay away from white bread and focus on wheat bread. I also read popular magazines that incorrectly suggest wheat bread as a healthy alternative. Modern wheat is often from seeds that have been genetically modified. These GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) wheat plants tend to have more gluten. The issue with gluten is that it actually ‘glues’ the small finger-like projections in your colon together so you have impaired absorption of critically important vitamins and minerals from food that is already overly processed.
