Treating Gluten Intolerance

Monday, 26 March 2012 08:26 AM

Question: I recently found out that my daughter has severe gluten intolerance. What is the best treatment for this condition?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

Gluten is a type of protein found in wheat and many (though not all) other grains, which is often added to processed foods.
The best thing that can be done for gluten sensitivity is to be extremely careful to avoid all sources of gluten. Eat only fresh foods, including vegetables, lean meats, and some fruits. Avoid all grains and wheat products. We do not actually need grains in our diet.

In addition, most such gluten-sensitive patients have impaired mineral and vitamin absorption that may require a combination of sublingual supplements that bypass the gastro intestinal tract (for example, methylcobalamin) and high-dose multivitamins (gluten-free). Magnesium reduces immune reactions, and the malabsorption associated with celiac disease causes magnesium deficiency.
