We hear a lot these days about how wheat is not good for us. How can that be?
Wheat is and has been a staple food for so long. How can it not be good for us?
There are many reasons.
Firstly, we didn't eat all white, processed wheat in the old times. Then, the breads were brown, had a lot of fiber, were pretty compact, hard to chew and often fermented.
The grains were ground between stones in the village mill.
The steel mills were introduced over 100 years ago and people started having problems with their digestions. This way of grinding the wheat grains eliminated the minerals and a lot of the fibers.
Later on, they began hybridizing the wheat. Due to the hybridizing that has been going on for over 50 years, 18 new proteins have developed. One of them is gliadin, a protein that works as an opiate. This means that the wheat is habit-forming! This is why people do not want to, or can’t stop eating their pizzas, pastas, and bread, including pastries.
Wheat allergies have manifold signs and symptoms. Gluten sensitivity in particular is caused by elevated levels of antibodies against the gliadin component of Gluten.
When we hear Gluten sensitivities, we think of food allergies and the digestive system, but it is so much more.
When the antibody combines with this gliadin protein, specific genes are turned on in a special type of immune cell in the body.
Once these genes are activated, inflammatory cytokine chemicals collect and can attack the brain. They damage brain tissue and leave the brain vulnerable to dysfunction and disease.
Another problem with anti-gliadin antibodies is that they can directly combine with specific proteins found in the brain that looked like the gliadin protein found in Gluten-containing foods, but the anti-gliadin antibodies just can't tell the difference.
No wonder that elevated cytokines is seen in Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, and even Autism.
Research has even shown that some people, who are wrongly diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease, simply have sensitivity to Gluten, and eliminating it from their diet resolves the symptoms.
In an article in the Lancet from 1966, it was reported that: ”Our data suggest that Gluten sensitivity is common in patients with neurological disease of unknown cause and may have etiological significance.”
People with this type of sensitivity can have issues with brain function without having any gastrointestinal problems whatsoever!
In reality, this means that every person who has a neurological disease that is unexplainable should be tested for wheat allergies.
This also goes for people who are depressed.
Patients with for example schizophrenia improved when they were put on a grain free, specifically wheat free diet. In many of them, symptoms disappear.
Try the Gluten Free diet; there is nothing to lose other than a couple of pounds!
Do you suffer from skin allergies?
If you do, your skin may be impacted, often in more ways than one.
Unfortunately, skin allergies are one of the most uncomfortable types of allergies to deal with.
This is because the rashes that many develop cannot only be unattractive, but they can also be itchy and painful.
One of the most common questions asked by those who suffer from skin allergies is how they can go about seeking relief.
There are a number of steps that can be and should be taken.
One of those steps involves determining what is causing an allergic reaction.
For example, do you develop a rash right after doing yard work?
If you do, you may have seasonal allergies.
Do you develop a rash after holding a cat?
If you do, you may have pet allergies, and so forth.
Do you get a rash after eating certain foods, like strawberries, for example?
Do you break out, but don’t have a clue what it could be that is triggering it?
It is most probably an allergy to something, and the possibilities can be endless.
You can be allergic to food, to something in the environment, soap or shampoo or other products you use for personal hygiene.
It could be from detergents for your clothes, or cleaning products you use in your home.
Anything that breaks out on the skin is a sign that the body cannot detoxify the body from toxins, and try to do it through the skin.
That’s why it’s not a good idea to put lotions or other skin products on eczema or rashes - it just pushes it deeper into the body!
If you are totally healthy, you also have a perfect immune system and never get sick!
The immune system is created by the nutrients from the food you eat.
If your diet is lacking nutrients, like in processed and fast food, and you don’t eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables, you are probably nutrient deficient, and may also suffer from inflammation and a weak digestive system.
Most people don’t understand that they have food allergies, sensitivities or intolerances!
Eating foods that are not organic, creates toxins, inflammation, allergies and candida - bacterial overgrowth, which in turn can create heartburn, depression, acne and other skin disorders, IBS, Crohn’s, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and the list goes on.
What is the solution, you may wonder while you are scratching your skin? The Allergy Kit is the solution! The Allergy Kit is a natural, do it yourself at home treatment.
It is also important to know that you can seek relief without the use of over-the-counter products.
For example, oatmeal when mixed with one cup of boiling water, let cooled, and then strained can provide relief to those who have hives or itchy skin irritations. The water extracted from the oatmeal can be dabbed on the skin.
As highlighted above, there are a number of different reasons why you may have an allergic reaction to the skin.
Regardless of the cause though, there is a solution: The Allergy Kit!

Why should we eat organic food? Is it really worth it? It's so much more expensive than the so-called normal food.
Glyphosate, a systemic herbicide and the active ingredient in commonly sold products has now been classified by The World Health Organization as a category 2A carcinogen.
But, is Glyphosate the only culprit?
In an Interview with Christa Orecchio, clinical and holistic nutritionist and founder of The Whole Journey, Gilles-Eric Seralini, Professor of Molecular Biology at the University of Caen, France and President of the scientific advisory board of the Committee of Research and Independent Information on Genetic Engineering (CRIIGEN) indicated that the most shocking aspect of his study was that many people think that the declared active ingredient, Glyphosate, is the primary offender, but that is not so.
There are hidden poisons in Roundup that are 1000 times more toxic than Glyphosate!
80% of agricultural foods are modified (GMOs) so they can resist the highly toxic Roundup and these hidden toxins are actually worse and more harmful than Glyphosate in itself!
These toxins are becoming the most harmful substances to people.
126 different toxins from herbicides and pesticides (besides other environmental toxins) have been found in the blood of practically everybody in the US, so why would you not eat organic food?
All these toxins harm our health, mainly through digestion, causing allergies, aches and pains, foggy thinking, candida, depression and much more.
Think about how you feel. Are you as energetic and healthy as 10 years ago? Or just 5 years ago?
Think about it! Clean up your diet and treat your allergies!
To be healthy is a life style! Take the first step.
