Discussing the challenges and misunderstandings about what makes for a healthy glutenfree lifestyle with the example of a grain-free Paleolithic diet.
We know that wheat harms the gut, which has been called "the second brain." So is it all that surprising to learn that it could have nerve and brain-damaging properties?
Global awareness about Celiac disease (CD) is growing—unfortunately, along with some rather unhelpful perceptions. It doesn't help that "celiac disease" has become a generic blanket term not unlike how "Kleenex" today signifies no more than a box of tissue paper of any brand. So, in the public mind, "celiac disease" today stands for everything connected to a reaction to gluten.

Wheat could be driving more than your digestive system crazy.
While wheat is well known to wreak havoc on the gastrointestinal health of genetically susceptible folks, such as those with celiac disease, and more recently, irritable bowel syndrome, new research published in the journal Psychiatry Research indicates that sensitivity to one of the components in wheat known as gliadin could be driving some into states of acute mania.
Whereas conventional screenings for wheat allergies or celiac disease consider intolerance exceedingly rare, an accumulating body of clinical research now links wheat consumption with over 200 health problems. Could this be why millions of American consumers are now expressing their wholesale rejection of this "king of grains"?

Food addictions are not strictly “psychological” problems, but have a hard-wired, organic component.
