Video Summary Transcript. Talk about some of the problems that we face. So what is Candida and what do we need to do about it. The first process is to look at what you eat.I was the poster child for Candida. “In my own Journey, I had multiple sclerosis at 24,and Epstein-Barr at 18. I had over 100 antibiotics and was a sugar addict by 18” When I look back I probably think it was at 18 that I had my first Multiple sclerosis episode. I followed this program of no sugar and [gluten] for a year, which made me feel better.

Hi Everyone, Dr Clark here. Today I am going to share with you the big gluten free diet mistake #1 that everyone seems to make. That is when they stop eating gluten, they immediately start eating gluten free grains, Quinoa, millet, things like that. The reason you don’t want to do that you are very quickly and easily going to develop some new food sensitivities to those gluten free grains. Why that happens is because you probably have a “leaky gut” that has not been healed.
So here’s what you want to understand. When you develop “Gluten Sensitivity”. Almost 100% of the time you start to produce what is called a leaky gut. Here’s what that is. If you could imagine in your intestines is like a great wall of china, a brick wall lining your intestine. Not a lot of stuff is suppose to get across the wall. Something can get across, but not a lot is supposed to get across. If you could imagine a hole being punched into that wall or some mortar falling out between the bricks.
Some things that are travelling through your GI Tract pass through onto the other side of the wall. Who is waiting on the other side of the wall? The Immune System. Their not going to like that, What ever that big thing is that is not suppose to come through normally as an invader. The immune system is going to try to attack it. This is a situation of “Increased Intestinal Permeability”. It is a huge source of inflammation.
How do you get a leaky gut, well, exposure to antibiotics do it, having an autoimmune condition like sjogrens or rheumatoid, MS. That’s how you get an autoimmune condition. But also just having gluten sensitivity very often leads to leaky gut. So how do you know that you have a gluten sensitivity problem. Well, you can tell from your GI symptoms or lack there of. GI symptoms are the least common presentation of gluten sensitivity, and, it doesn’t matter if you have been tested for celiacs, because Celiacs is only one kind of gluten sensitivity. The best way to get tested is a lab in Arizona called Cyrex Labs that does really good testing for gluten sensitivity. But beyond that, what we are talking about is the mistake you make when you think hey, I am going to switch from eating gluten to gluten free. When you do that, there is a good chance that you have this persisting leaky gut. When you have a leaky gut and you eat these gluten free grains, with a hole in the wall, there is a good chance that you will develop new sensitivities to the gluten free grains, Quinoa, millet, potato or rice.
So what do you do. When you go on a gluten free diet. You don’t start eating all these gluten free alternatives. What you should do is completely avoid those grains for thirty days, and you should be working with someone that can help you make sure that you have a leaky gut handled. There should be someone that can help you with that, make sure they are someone that really understands it.
You don’t want to go from eating gluten to eating gluten free pasta or gluten free bread. Because you will develop some new sensitivities and then after a month you will say well, I don’t really feel that much better, I am going to go back to gluten. Well the reason you don’t probably feel better is because you still had a leaky gut and you developed an inflammatory problem with these new things added. You traded one inflammation for another inflammation and the results weren’t that much different.
For those of you that have already gone onto a gluten free diet, it was like a huge turn around and its a totally new world. You probably got lucky and didn’t produce to much sensitivity…
Comments: I would love Glutenology to create a presentation on foods that are balanced and safe to eat so that we aren’t all wasting away eating just fruits and vegetables.
Thank You So Much for posting this! This answered so much for me about corn. Although gluten-free for over a year now, I? was still having random problems and I kept thinking it was somehow linked to corn. I thought maybe GMO’s so I tried to be as diligent as possible about only having non-gmo corn products, but I would still occasionally have trouble. And I had no idea about the other grains as well. So eye-opening!!
I had reactive hypoglycemia caused by gluten sensitivity. My personal exerience with going gluten free.

This is helpful to me because I’ve been having many strange symptoms recently, feeling like I’m starving, headaches, weak and tired to the point of almost passing out tingling legs, arms and lips, depression, anxiety and extreme irritability. I gained 50 lbs over the past year and haven’t been able to lose it. I was thinking thyroid, but now? I’m not so sure. I’ll have to cut gluten out of my diet and see how it goes. It’s hard because I also crave it and continue to eat it after I know I’m full.
Did you know that Coffee contains gluten? There are many misconceptions surrounding gluten sensitivity and for some individuals one of their problems may be found in their morning and afternoon coffee. In this video Dr Hagmeyer clinic director of the Naperville Institute For NeuroMetabolic Solutions in Naperville IL, explains the connection between coffee and gluten, cross reactive foods and chronic health problems.

I have read elsewhere that rice and oats do NOT? contain gluten, could you please explain why you include these in the foods such as wheat, rye and barley that are commonly touted as the gluten heavy foods while other ‘experts’ do not. Thanks for the video, coffee always makes me feel horrible.

The traditional definition of gluten only included wheat gluten back? in the 40’s and 50’s. We now know much more about gluten proteins and gluten cross reactors. We also have isolated gluten proteins from all grains. Gluten is just an umbrella term. Very often people just see “gluten free” what they are really saying is that it is “wheat” gluten free. This is all the nonsense that goes on behind food labeling laws.
Absorption: often a person with celiac disease will not be absorbing omega 3 or essential fatty acids, as a result they become extremely hungry and are never full and they have a high caloric intake and the body will store that fat.
Many have low pancreatic function, which effects your insulin and the ability to burn stored fat.
Celiac disease can cause thyroid disorders. The thyroid secretes hormones that control your bodies metabolic rate. Your metabolic rate may slow down. Iodine deficiency can effect the thyroid.
