Benefits of a Gluten-Free & Casein-Free Diet

GFCFResearch has proven the importance of a GFCF diet (gluten-free and casein-free) for many of the following conditions: Autism Spectrum Disorders, Celiac, Depression, Weight-Loss, Psoriasis, Migraines, Multiple Sclerosis, Chron’s Disease, Schizophrenia, Ulcerative Colitis, Chronic Diarrhea Cystic Fibrosis.

Many individuals have problems breaking down the proteins that are in diary called caseins and the protein in wheat, oats, barley, rye and spelt flours are called gluten.  Illness occurs when the incomplete breakdown of the gluten and/or casein pass the intestines as peptide chains and enter into the bloodstream passing the blood brain barrier. The incomplete breakdown actually turns into casomorphines from the casein and glutomorphines from the gluten and transforms into an opiate. Opiates can cause any or all of the following side effects: clouded mental functioning, insomnia, diarrhea, impaired social connection, blocking of pain messages, dilated pupils, inflammation on the stomach lining and depression.  It is a vicious cycle that never ends. You eat the foods that one cannot breakdown properly and the result is inflammation, leaky gut syndrome, skin disorders, depression, weight issues, behavioral and mental issues.

Take heart, there is hope. One can implement a specialized GFCF diet and assist their body in healing while removing any toxic residue from the incomplete digestion of the offending foods.  In addition, the daily use of adding digestive enzymes will lighten the burden of the body in the digestion process. Don’t be overwhelmed since there are so many delicious and nutritious alternatives to explore to eat.  There are numerous cookbooks and local health food stores will offer gluten-free and casein-free products from snack bars, flours, deli meats, dinner dishes, breads, cakes and more.  Read all the labels before consuming anything. Educate and empower yourself.
