[double click to expand video]






Gluten is a family of storage proteins found inallgrains. 
Bran is the outer coating, and inside the bran is the endosperm where the majority of gluten is found. Gluten serves to nourish the grain, but it also protects it from predation- noxious.

There are many families of grain proteins, gluten is just one family. In other words, alpha gliadin is not the only grain protein that causes problems.

Gluten Part 1- Diagnosis

It is estimated that 30-40% of the population has some sort of gluten sensitivity, compared to the <1% who have Celiac disease [Osborne, 2016]. With 70% of those who think they have Celiac disease actually having a gluten sensitive disorder [Osborne, 2016].  Properly differentiating then treating Celiac disease vs. gluten intolerance vs. gluten sensitivity avoids bigger problems down the road. 

Gluten intoleranceis the inability to digest gluten, a family of storage proteins found in all grains.

Winterizing Liver, Kidney & Lung

For the people who are thinking about doing a Liver cleanse now...WAIT a few months!  Winter is actually the time to nourish the Chinese kidney [water element], which is the mother of Liver [wood element] inpreparationfor a spring-cleaning. According to Chinese medicine, Liver [wood element] detoxification is best done in Spring when the body is climatically receptive to cold, bitter & draining cleansing medicinals. So how does one support the Liver now in Winter? By supporting its mother the Kidney, and its grandmother the Lungs.
