    Default Is Gluten Bad for Non-Celiacs? Expert’s Panel Advice

    This is an hour long video but is very interesting. It is certainly worth watching for anyone who is not sure whether or not they should be gluten free.

    Thanks, Aaltrude. I probably won't watch the video, but there is an easy way to decide whether to be gluten free. Simply eliminate all gluten for a couple of months and take note of any health issues that disappear.

    My IMT therapist finally convinced me to go gluten free some time back, after I'd been complaining about bowel issues. I took it a step further and eliminated all grains/grain products, with the exception of a little rice on rare occasions, and I'm glad I did. I never thought grains or gluten bothered me, but lo and behold, once I eliminated them my IBS went into remission, my allergic rhinitis disappeared, and I lost that little belly pooch that I couldn't seem to get rid of. I also now weigh what I did in my trim 20's. In addition, I have more energy and just feel better in general. I would never go back to eating grains.

    From what I've heard and read, most people have some degree of sensitivity to gluten. You don't need to have celiac disease to benefit from eliminating grains. Also, the notion that we need grains in our diet to be healthy is complete hogwash. Do be prepared to follow a gluten free diet for at least six months. Eliminating grains for a week or two is insufficient time for the body to heal itself.

    For some people, even six months is not enough for complete healing though in most cases it will be enough for any symptoms to dramatically improve.

    Dr. Osborne and other experts say that it takes about 7 years to completely heal from gluten (all glutens, lectins etc) exposure. Anytime you cheat or get exposed inadvertently sets the clock back at least a few months. Most people will feel dramatically better in 3 to 6 months, but they definitely haven't healed.
