The Damaging Effects of Gluten in the Diet

Have you experienced challenges eating gluten? Dr. Karlfeldt, ND, PhD describes the impact gluten can have on the digestive tract in causing inflammation and chronic health issues. 

If we can heal the gut and prevent the inflammation of the lining, we are moving toward recovery and health. Inflammatory substances include white flour, sugar and unhealthy fats.

Along the gut lining we have "fingers" called villi. These allow us to absorb nutrients. Eating a lot of gluten, for example, degrades and flattens these finger-like protrusions, eliminating our ability to absorb as many nutrients as are needed for health.

Supporting the gut lining with specific foods and using the GAPS Diet is a powerful way to reduce inflammation and build up healthy gut flora to create a healthy immune system.
