Why You Should Probably Stop Eating Wheat : Discovery News

“They” are still spitting out anti anti- wheat propaganda to the world. And I just don’t know why.  What do ‘they’ get by us ingesting the indigestible? How much stock to they have in the wheat market?

Not eating wheat (gluten) will help us all, celiac and non-celiac more than not eating sugar, not drinking milk. I guarantee you!!

Today’s hybridized wheat contains hard-to-digest proteins that aren’t found in the parent plant.

Inside Out

There is a strong possibility your epidermis is showing! Those bumps and pimples, and cracked skin and blisters, and itches, that you have endured, and medicated and coated with goo, could all be from the food you eat.

It could be as easy as connecting the dots, that sprinkle across your body.

Have you seen a baby who eats too much orange and yellow foods? They turn orange. What is on the inside does come out.

Our skin is connected to our guts.These skin issues may all be caused by gluten! Celiac may not be a rare autoimmune disease, it may just be the body expelling the enemy, gluten.

Keratosis Pilaris: Those little bumps that show up on the back of your arms, and legs and on your cheeks, that make you look like a plucked chicken. They are caused by an overgrowth of keratin, a protein. keratin is part of the structural makeup of the skin, nails and hair.

  • It is said to to be genetic (so is Celiac)
  • Treatment with high doses of A and or D can help control it. ( A and D are deficient in those who are gluten intolerant)
  • Many with asthma and eczema have keratosis pilaris. As do many with malabsorption disease have, asthma and ecczema. 


Psoriasis. Is red patchy itchy scaly, patches of skin. Sometimes small sometimes huge. Sometimes it comes out as little blisters on the bottoms of your feet and palms of your hand, they doctor may have diagnosed as hoof and mouth disease. There are several different types of psoriasis, the main 5 are plague, inverse, guttate, pustular and erythrodermic. It can pit your fingernails, cause them to peal and separate.

  • Psoriasis is cause by an over reaction, a malfunction of the immune system. It is an auto immune disease. So is Celiac
  • It is genetic. Celiac too
  • Those with psoriasis are low on vitamin D and A, though that is not the ‘cause’. It does respond well to vitamin D suppliment. Those intoerant to gluten do not absorb vitamin A D E & K and magnesium and B12 ……
  • Alcohol can trigger psoratic attack- Or could it be the reaction to the gluten in beer? The deficiency of B12 and Magnesium


Acne- pimples, zits, blackheads, cysts. YUCK!

  • Hormones cause Sebum production is high, caused by androgens. Those with acne tend to be low on vitamins A and D and B5 and B12 and C. The body uses these vitamins especially during hormone production – ADEK the B’s are absorbed through the gut.
  • Excessive keratin (like psoriasis, and eczema and DH) and inflamation of skin.–The Immune system produces inflammatory compounds to heal body, but in autoimmune disease, like Celiac, the shut off valve is broke. The immune system sees the excess Sebum and Keratin as a danger, so it attacks (just doing it’s job to well) and a huge hurty, zit grows on your forehead.
  • Acne is genetic. Celiac is genetic
  • Acne begins at puberty. Many show signs of gluten intolerance symptoms at puberty.

The BEST treatment for Acne that gets the best results is Accutane (A HIGH dose RX of Vitamin A)

D ermatitis herpetiformis– a chronic skin condition of itchy blisters, sometimes inside the mouth. This has been directly linked to those with Celiac, it is form of Celiac disease.
Many have been misdiagnosed with psoriasis or eczema who have DH because they have not ‘passed’ the blood test for IgA antibodies. Or is it the other way around?

Could we, the doctors, the world be looking at this from the wrong direction? Could what is on the outside be a result of what we are putting inside…. Gluten?

Gluten Free Tennis Anyone?

I read an article/ promo of Novak Djokovic’s book and being Gluten free. Pretty interesting, I for one think we all would benefit from getting rid of wheat, it really does not have any reason to be in our diet. I also KNOW for sure that many more people have Celiac than are diagnosed, and they probably never will be diagnosed. Most doctors in this world are ignorant of all celiac can ’cause’  or conspiring against the world by not diagnosing, for job security.  So I am all on board for another to be touting gluten removal for the health of all!

The bread on the stomach part… a bit chiropractic witch doctorish to me.  IF that were to be something that actually worked we would have Celiacs passing out as they walked past bakeries. We don’t have immediate reaction to ingesting hidden gluten, I really doubt bread touching the skin could bring us to our knees. It is things like this that lose us (Gluten Intolerent Fanatics) ground. Kind of like the Bennie-Hin-type-evangelist blowing people over, make we Christians authenticity questionable.

Another misspeak, on the part of Novak Djokovic; the advice eat gluten free for 2 weeks and add back to see how sick you get.  2 weeks is not enough.  The body needs time to heal. Everything has been damaged. The gut, the blood, the skin, the brain, the metabolism… Most gastro’s (good ones that know what they are doing) will prescribe 6 months of gf and then they will do return biopsies, to see if healing is happening.  Our gastro made the statement after all of tests were done, positive results returned, that he still would not diagnose celiac disease until he saw recovery.  He NEVER ever wanted to test by putting the gluten back in. That would take us back to square one!  As I said, symptoms are rarely immediate, the immune system starts to tear at the body when it finds the hated gluten. The damage from the over zealous immune system may take weeks to emerge. The writer, Jim Caple, of the article says he did not feel any different after jumping off the wagon. Though he did develop a slight cold. Not being educated, on autoimmune disease, he did not consider the cold may have actually been his immune system being weakened by the gluten intake, and failed to conquer the cold virus.

Instead of eating wheat to feel bad in 2 weeks, I think all should take note on how much better they are feeling. And take in to account every slight malady that disappears, be it a pimple after eating chocolate, or the migraine you usually get once a week.  Our son, immediately was relieved of all gastric issues. He began gaining weight. His personality changed within days. We had no idea how lethargic and moody he was, until he began bubbling over with energy. Hopefully Novak Djokovic’s fans will choose to go gluten-free, from his testimony of healing, and many more will jump on our gluten free band wagon.

The writer of the article is like too many who are introduced to celiac/gluten intolerance. They get caught up in it being a ‘disease’ and the tests of confirming, it being an illness.  Had Novak Djokovic gone Paleo and said it was the next best thing to sliced gluten-free bread (and skipped telling the bread rubbing), everyone would be choosing the diet and screaming it from the roof tops. They would also be eating gluten-free.

You ARE Starving for Magnesium


I can not push enough on magnesium.  For EVERYONE!  No one gets enough mag, because no one is absorbing correctly. Even those of the world who don’t think or admit they have gluten intolerance.

The body absorbs

  • 40% of magnesium through the small intestine.
  • 5% of magnesium through the large intestine
  • 55% of magnesium is waste

Magnesium taken orally is absorbed through the small intestine villa. All of we with celiac/gluten intolerance know our villa are damaged. If you are ingesting gluten, your villa are mucked up with gluten, at least, because gluten is indigestible by all.

Lets pretend someone actually does digest gluten, they still will not absorb the full 40%.

They are eating foods that hinder magnesium absorption Non fermentable, insoluble fiber, high in phytates & oxalates.  :

  • Whole grains
  • bran
  • seed hulls
  • nut hulls
  • flours
  • beans
  • soy
  • some leafy greens
  • tea
  • coffee
  • cacao

Then to add to the hinderance,  those foods consumed that are supposed to have magnesium are now depleted of the levels they should have due to: starving soil, pesticides, fertilizers.

AND once these nutrient depleted foods are delivered to be processed, what little magnesium they contain is removed with processing. Grains and nuts are superheated into oils, magnesium dissolves away. Chemical additives to preserve, color, and enhance flavor, destroys magnesium.  Refining the food removes all the magnesium. Sugar is actually good for us, straight from the sugar cane. It becomes useless only after it is refined and the molasses is removed,. 1TB of molasses contains 25% of RDA of magnesium.

The absolute best way to get our magnesium and get well is not through our mouth/gut.IF you could absorb it all, it could take up to 5 years to restore the deficiency you have.  I was taking liquid mag orally. The magnesium drops taste horrible to me. The powdered form that you mix with water is not much better. In addition to the nastiness, I could never regulate the amount I needed, to be ‘regular’.

The answer is through the skin,(transdermal) within weeks you could be back to normal magnesium levels and seeing amazing changes in your health. Just spray, splash, rub, magnesium oil onto your back (for some reason it does not itch there) every day.  You can buy mag oil or you can make your own. You could even make it into a lotion if you are extra talented.    Here is a great recipe for mag oil : How to Make Your Own Magnesium Oil.

What will you be curing? EVERYTHING!!!  Magnesium is absolutely positively essential for life. Check out these posts on Magnesium deficiency: Magnesium Deficiency Symptoms and Diagnosis, Magnesium the Great News, Magnesium What you need to know

The Deficiency Snowball


I have a vitamin D deficiency. Not surprising. With Celiac absorption of A-D-E K, the fat soluble are an issue, as well as Magnesium, Potassium, B12, and , and , and.

I was surprised when I looked up the symptoms of vitamin D deficiency. Seriously, this malabsorption stuff with gluten intolerance and autoimmune issues is the ONLY thing ‘wrong’ with me. If doctors would look at that first, I would have no health problems at all.

My blood pressure, for years has been just a couple of beats more than a zombies, (112/70) suddenly has become high, 136/89.  It is a bit of white coat syndrome, I can get a normal reading at home, but normal 120/80 ,is high for me.  The ‘high’ is not high enough to medicate, but enough that ‘they’ always mention it.

The worlds largest study to examine the link between vitamin D levels and hypertension has found tha low levels of Vitamin D can be a major cause of hypertension  

I STRUGGLE with my weight. I do enjoy food. But I do not eat the a lot of fatty greasy carb filled foods. I do not eat enough food to maintain my over abundant self. My petite,  daughter in law, who at times  is underweight,  eats much more than I do.   I ate  low cal, no carb, no sugar, no dairy, and running 4 miles every day, for a year lost me 30 lbs. Seriously?!

In cases of overweight people, blood tests have shown that there is high cholesterol level in blood but also low vitamin D level.  By the way, my cholesterol is just above the ‘good’ level:(

These past 2 years my lab work has shown small elevated levels in my blood sugar, and I have heard the talk of risks of diabetes. So need to watch it. :(

In summary, vitamin D has the potential to prevent Type 1 as well as Type 2 diabetes. It can also prevent the devastating complications of diabetes such as heart attacks and kidney failure. 

In this last medical visit, I was finally was ‘re’ diagnosed with low thyroid. I have been ‘border line’ on paper, and definite with symptoms for years.

Vitamin D also has a direct effect on thyroid health, as this vitamin has been shown to influence thyrocytes directly by attenuating thytrophin (TSH)stimulated iodide uptake and cell growth (3).  

One of my thyroid symptoms has been hair loss. It fluctuates. I started taking Raw Thyroid, over the counter, and it really seemed to help. Now reading that there is a relation between Thyroid and D, I understand more.  And with this information:

Researchers at Cairo University found that women who were experiencing hair loss also had lower levels of iron and vitamin D2—and hair loss only got worse as the levels dropped.

Another snowflake in this snowball. The doctor found the D deficiency and low thyroid in my lab work, while confirming my low estrogen (menopause from hell, result of 15 years of no uterus and ovaries, AND being over 50.) Guess what? Vitamin D deficiency declines sex hormones, i.e.. estrogen.  

VitaminD plays a vital role for menopausal women, in particular, those over 50. Women in their 30s and 40s should also pay attention to vitamin d. – See more here:

Add this to , my finding a few years ago I had a magnesium deficiency. I become dehydrated easily. I have migraines that are relieved by taking magnesium. drinking sports drinks with mag, or NuNN tabs.

We know, that vitamin D to get absorbed in the bloodstream requires magnesium to convert it into its active state, and it is also a fact that vitamin D blood levels will fail to rise in those who are already magnesium deficient, irrespective of their vitamin D consumption

Magnesium is essential to a healthy body. Magnesium is absorbed through the gut. D needs magnesium to be absorbed. D regulates the absorption of calcium. Thyroid needs calcium to function.  D is one of those fat soluble that get absorbed through stomach. D messes with the sex hormones. Magnesium is needed for a healthy heart. Magnesium is messenger for insulin. The endocrine system depends on magnesium to regulate energy,the metabolism. Vitamin D is thought to be a ‘reason’ for autoimmune disease. It all goes together in one big snowball.

A snowball effect. Doctors are not putting all of this together. Some do come close, by treating the insufficiency, with nutrients and not meds. Few, though, are coming to the correct conclusion. One small grain, that our world has come to believe is essential to our diet, is the cause of this avalanche.  What if I had never eaten wheat? Would I have had a hysterectomy from Adenomyosis in my 30’s? Would I be 40+ lbs overweight? Would my D be low? Would my nails be strong? Would I have broken every toe, 3 fingers, a wrist and a rib? Would I have tinnitus? Would I have arthritis in my shoulders? Would I have had PMS? Would I have migraines? Would I have crows feet? Would  I have asthma? Would I have been a perfect wife and mother? We will never know!!
