How to Go Gluten Free
By India-Jewel Jackson July 19, 2011
Not literally of course, but countless people around the world are suffering from gluten allergies and Celiac’s Disease—and most are completely unaware.
“Millions of people have to go gluten-free to live healthy lives,” explains Dr. Gary Kaplan, founder of The Kaplan Center for Integrative Medicine. “Celiac disease is a diagnosis that is frequently missed for decades—if you have celiac disease, consuming gluten can lead to many serious health problems, therefore it needs to be completely eliminated from your diet. Those with gluten intolerances and sensitivities need to adopt a gluten-free diet to alleviate the uncomfortable symptoms, such as joint and abdominal pain.”
Granted, a gluten-free diet isn’t the easiest to maintain (we know first hand), but people are finally getting hip to the repercussions of a gluten-heavy diet, thus dropping this inflammatory ingredient from any and everything they consume. Interested in giving it a go? Dr. Kaplan shares six tips for going gluten free below.
