ARE YOU ANNOYED BY THE GLUTEN-FREE TREND??
Well, if I may…I want to explain why this is a lot more legit than you think.
MOST people eat more GMO foods than whole, organic foods. In fact, most people eat no living foods most days. FEW people are actually feeding their body its need for 5+ servings of vegetables & fruits/day (more veggies than fruits). God created our body to have certain needs. We must eat living foods to be truly ALIVE and thriving. So we can either eat them or supplement them. But we need them to be well.
We also run to medical doctors and get antibiotics and other toxic drugs for sickness WAY MORE than we need to. There are plenty of natural anitbiotics, anti-virals, natural “medicine” available to us (food/herbs are medicine). And YES they work if you are using the RIGHT products, QUALITY products, know HOW to use them and take the proper dosage.
We have a culture living blind to Candida overgrowth in their gut, which leads to leaky gut, which = FOOD ALLERGIES. We become allergic to that which we eat the most of…WHEAT (and gluten grains), sugar, dairy, corn, soy, etc (most of which are GMO foods…aka: not even real food anymore…essentially poison to our bodies). There are consequences to these things…hence the generations of people that now have some or many food allergies, namely gluten-sensitivities. Our genetics also play a role in what foods are and are not beneficial to us. Wheat/gluten happens to be a common genetic allergy or sensitivity in modern generations.
Why is it so hard to go gluten free?? Because THIS IS WHAT MOST PEOPLE EAT DAILY. This is the same reason so many people are allergic. AND so many people live in denial because they don’t understand what this is. Only ~50% of gluten allergies have digestion symptoms. This is known as non-celiac's gluten sensitivity. These symptoms are primarily mental/emotional/hormonal. This is one way the gut-brain connection manifests itself.
FOR ME- nothing happens to my “gut” when I eat gluten. It’s all hormonal, emotional, metabolic. My thyroid crashes after even a trace of gluten. My daily natural thyroid supplement that keeps me well usually has to triple in dose for about a week (sometimes longer) to pull me out of the crash. I also have to add other things for my gut/liver and immune system such as Food Enzymes, Silver Shield and N-acetyl cysteine. (That’s both EXPENSIVE & ANNOYING…not worth it!) I CANNOT afford to be down as my calling requires me to be organized, motivated, healthy, alert and wise so that I can manage my practice and lead and encourage a multitude of sick people.
Do you have hormone imbalances, thyroid symptoms, menstrual problems, sleep issues, can’t lose weight, feel cold all the time, hair falling out, skin problems, lack of motivation, DEPRESSION, anxiety or psychological problems?? I strongly encourage you to go gluten-free, but better yet, grain free, at least for now. It’s likely 1 piece of the puzzle. It won’t fix everything, but is a critical step of obedience for anyone with autoimmune symptoms of any sort, especially thyroid symptoms. If any of these resonates with you, then pray about making an appointment to get a custom plan designed specifically for YOU, so that you can live the abundant life in Christ, for Christ.
Have HOPE. There are answers. God will give you the self-control & discipline you need to change your diet or lifestyle. He cares. He knows. He sees. He loves you!!
