Should I eat that?

Clinical studies have confirmed what many food intolerance sufferers already know . . . 

  • Food toxins like glutens (from wheat and other grains) - and caseins (from milk products) are the triggers for most chronic diseases.

To find out whether you should continue eating gluten grains and dairy foods - read on.


Chronic Inflammatory and Auto-Immune Diseases

Research shows Food toxins cause inflammation . . . and then infection

A compromised immune ststem is easily infected 

Anything which puts stress on your body - also eventually effects your ability to fight off invading infections - your immune system.

'Bugs' like bacteria (e.g. Salmonella, E.coli), viruses (colds and 'flu) and fungals/yeasts (candida, tinea) are always in our bodies.

If you are healthy the bugs don't develop into a full-blown infection - because your immune system goes to work and gobbles them up. 


But if your immune system is compromised in any way (e.g. from food toxins like gluten) - the bacteria, viruses and fungals have free rein to multiply and overwhelm us.

RESULT: We get sick. And we get sick continuously. As soon as you get over one bug - another comes along and takes over!

If you are never 'well' - and always coming down with infections like these - you probably have food intolerance. That is you are still eating food toxins. Take the Self -Assess Test


Inflammation: Your Immune System Under Stress

How can we get inflammation from foods? When the complex proteins casein (milk protein) and gluten (from wheat and some other grains) break down in the digestive tract they form protein fragments that can be 'mis-read' by the body as foreign invaders. Once they are in the bloodstream - your immune system sends out the antibody cavalry, (the natural immune response) and the inflammation begins.

  • Inflammation at the joints causes stiffness and arthritis
  • Inflammation in the lungs or nasal passages causes respiratory congestion, asthma and chronic cough
  • Inflammation in the membranes of the brain causes headache and migraine
  • Inflammation in the nervous system causes neurological disorders like multiple sclerosis, epilepsy
  • Inflammation at the skin can cause hives, eczema and psoriasis

 But a simple switch in foods means the cause of the inflammation is removed - and the body begins healing naturally.


Chronic Inflammatory Conditions - From 'Modern' Foods

"Modern" foods are those foods which were not available to prehistoric humans (hunter-gatherers): grains, dairy and refined sugars. Sounds hard to believe, doesn't it? Simple staple foods we are all accustomed to - causing chronic diseases?

However, the medical journal evidence bears it out. Food intolerance can give you inflammatory conditions like:

    • Headaches and migraine
    • Colitis (intestinal inflammation)
    • Respiratory difficulty, asthma and chronic cough
    • Atherosclerosis (heart disease)
    • Rheumatoid arthritis - and stiff joints (e.g. back ache)
    • Eczema, Psoriasis
    • Depression, anxiety, panic attacks
    • Infertility and miscarriage
    • Multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, neuro-muscular disorder
    • Behavioural disorders in children
    • Diabetes type 1 - and pancreatitis
    • Thyroiditis - Graves' Disease, Hashimoto's  and other inflammatory disorders

Food intolerance is the inability to fully digest certain proteins. However - the good news is - by simply Switching a few foods you can stop the disease progress and in many cases - heal it completely. All you need is a simple journal and some food substitution guides.


Temporary Relief with Medications? Or Find the Cause for Permanent Relief

Anti-inflammatory tablets only ease symptoms temporarily. They don't fix the cause. And food intolerance is the cause for lots of people - if only they would investigate. Are you taking anti-inflammatories? Have you been on them for a while? Could it be possible that you have food intolerance, like Monica - below. 

Monica's Letter: "I've been in the habit of reading up on health issues trying to figure this out for a long time.  I discovered the Healing Program on the internet last summer and have since learned about wheat intolerance, which I had not ever heard of.  Since every one of my symptoms was on the list for wheat intolerance I decided to cut it out completely.  I had a natural, inate fear of wheat products, but never understood it.  I felt immeasurably better the very next day. 

"I woke up at 6:00 again!  My stiff joints completely disappeared within a few days.  My head has been clear every day and my emotional well being has become a non-issue.  One day while driving in the car I caught a glance of my eyes in the rear view mirror and realized the dark circles were gone.  My eye sockets have completely changed color and don't look sunken anymore.

"I decided my 13 year old daughter had a problem also and I asked her to stop eating wheat.  I noticed a difference in her attitude the very next day.  She tested it last Friday and ate a lot of wheat in one day.  She broke out into hives on her face, had muscle spasms, and ached all over her spine and rib cage.

"I can't thank you enough for ending the mystery of my health problems, but also for contributing to helping my daughter avoid a difficult life.  I'm so happy that my daughter is going to be able to avoid so simply her health problems.  I can tell she feels good now. Thanks a lot." Monica S.
