Arthritis and Gluten

Arthritis and Gluten

arthritis and gluten

Do you or someone you know suffer with any of these conditions?

  • Joint pain
  • Restricted mobility
  • Lack of sleep due to pain

Chewing Aspirin/Motrin/Tylenol like candy just for temporary relief. Do you find that nothing works?! Not pills, not therapy, not rest, not supplements! Have you even been told that the damage was too bad, that you need surgery or that it’s hopeless?

In the Arthritis Foundation article, The Connection Between Gluten and Arthritis by Linda Rath,

Alessio Fasano, MD, who directs the Center for Celiac Research at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, says “people who are sensitive to gluten can have symptoms anywhere in the body when partially digested gluten fragments leak from the intestine into the bloodstream.”

“Unlike other proteins, we don’t digest gluten completely,” he explains. “In some people, the immune system sees gluten as the enemy and will unleash weapons to attack it, causing inflammation in the intestines as well as in other organs and tissues.”

This can cause serious problems outside the gut, including weight loss, anemia, osteoporosis, infertility and miscarriage, skin rashes, headache, depression, fibromyalgia and joint pain. This is partly due to inflammation and partly due to poor absorption of vital nutrients.

At Living Health Integrative Medicine, we want people to reach optimal health. One of the core ways you can achieve this is through your diet. You have the choice three times a day to dictate your well being! While living gluten-free is a great start to healthy living, getting grain-free takes it one step further and here are four reasons why:

Cutting out grains guarantees the elimination of gluten. This diet reduces inflammation while reducing sugars and your weight!
Grains contain difficult-to-digest proteins. This is a critical downside to a diabetic because your body may confuse grains with proteins thus causing inflammation.

Grains contain lots of sugar!

Gluten-free or not, grains can cause blood sugar to spike and potentially worsen diabetes.
Grains have lots of omega-6 fats. When you’re not balancing omega-6 fats with equal amounts of omega-3 fats, inflammation increases (Hint: If you don’t eat a lot of fish you’re probably not balancing omega-6 fats). This can contribute to diabetes, heart disease and cancers.

Grains you might not have known are grains– corn, cornbread, brown/white rice, buckwheat, couscous, bulgur, millett, oatmeal, rolled oats, quinoa, sorghum, pasta, flour products, cereals, rye, spelt, barley and teff.
