The Link Between Food Intolerance, Hormones and Your Gut Health

Welcome to Regenerate You!

If you find yourself struggling with food intolerances of any kind, then it’s most likely causing an imbalance in your hormones as well. And if you’ve been diagnosed with low testosterone, PCOSestrogen dominancethyroid issues, or insulin resistance; then your food sensitivities are making them worse.

In this Podcast, I discuss how they’re linked and where to begin to help heal and regenerate your body from the attack on your immune system.

Hidden Gluten Sources you Didn’t Know About

Uncommon Foods Containing Gluten

If you have Celiac Disease, an autoimmune disease that’s the most severe form of gluten intolerance, and are still experiencing symptoms after going gluten-free, you may still be getting gluten exposure from hidden sources. Both forms (Celiac’s and gluten intolerance) can cause widespread symptoms, many of which have nothing to do with digestion. They can both lead to further inflammation in the body as well as Hashimoto’s disease. However some people do have non-celiac gluten sensitivity as well. Either way it’s important to limit your exposure to gluten 100%. Here’s a comprehensive list the known and hidden sources of gluten, which will help you identify potential exposures that you weren’t aware of.

 

Common Gluten Foods:

  • Barley
  • Bulgur
  • Couscous
  • Kamut
  • Oats (if not specifically gluten-free)
  • Rye
  • Semolina
  • Spelt
  • Triticale
  • Wheat
  • Wheat germ

 

Hidden Gluten Sources:

  • Artificial coffee creamer
  • Beer
  • Bouillon cubes
  • Broth/stocks
  • Candy
  • Certain ground spices
  • Certain veined cheeses
  • Chewing gum
  • Chips
  • Cold cuts
  • Flavored teas
  • Flavored rice
  • Fish sticks
  • Flavored crackers
  • French fries
  • Gravies
  • Hot dogs
  • Imitation seafood
  • Instant coffee and other instant hot drinks
  • Ketchup
  • Matzo flavor
  • Mustard
  • Mayonnaise
  • Pasta side dishes
  • Rice mixes
  • Roasted nuts
  • Soy sauce
  • Salad dressing
  • Seitan (wheat gluten, used in meat substitutes)
  • Self-basting turkey
  • Soy and teriyaki sauces
  • Tinned baked beans
  • Tomato sauces
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • Veggie burgers
  • Vodka
  • Wine coolers

For those with Celiac Disease, complete avoidance of gluten is important. Some non-Celiac patients may also be sensitive enough that even tiny exposures are problematic. If you feel like you have successfully eliminated gluten from your diet and are still experiencing gluten-associated symptoms. When you are gluten sensitive, your body is creating antibodies against gluten. Those same antibodies can also recognize proteins in other foods that have similar structures and mimic the reaction they have to gluten.  Which non-gluten foods you may react to will depend on the antibodies your body has formed against gluten.  Not everyone will have a cross-reaction to all the below foods, but it’s important to consider if you’ve gone gluten-free and are still experiencing symptoms.

 

Cross Reactive Foods:

  • Buckwheat
  • Sorghum
  • Millet
  • Amaranth
  • Quinoa
  • Corn
  • Rice
  • Potato
  • Hemp
  • Teff
  • Soy
  • Milk (Alpha-Casein, Beta-Casein, Casomorphin, Butyrophilin, Whey Protein and whole milk)
  • Chocolate
  • Yeast
  • Coffee (instant, latte, espresso, imported)
  • Sesame
  • Tapioca (a.k.a. cassava or yucca)
  • Eggs

In those with celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity, increased intestinal permeability or ‘leaky gut’ is common. This can further aggravate the formation of food sensitivities.  Healing an unhealthy gut may help alleviate some of these cross-reactions or sensitivities to gluten. However the best course of action would be to determine the root cause of your gut issues in the first place.

The Difference Between Oral and IV Vitamins

How IV Therapy Benefits You More Thank Oral Supplementation

What if there was one thing in your body that had the power to control the way you look, feel and think? And what if supporting this one thing was the key to unlocking everlasting health? Sound too good to be true? I’m here to tell you that not only is this a fact, but it’s this vital organ in your body that serves as a common denominator for most of today’s health problems. I’m referring to your gut.

The current Merck Manual lists 14 main gastrointestinal disorders, with up to 14 subdivisions within each of the principle groupings (Beers, 2006). Add to this the finding that many other disease states affect the gastrointestinal tract significantly, and both give us a strong reminder that our gut has a major influence on our health. Intravenous (IV) therapy can be a useful adjunct to the oral treatment of gastrointestinal diseases.

This is because by the time symptoms of disease have made their appearance, it is sometimes too late for oral vitamins and minerals to make much difference. Nevertheless, these same vitamins and minerals, given intramuscularly (IM) or intravenously, can benefit many diseases. We know that the health of the GI tract affects the overall health of all body functions and the well-being of every individual. We approach the problem of disease as a problem of the cell. What the cell needs to be maximally healthy is always found in nature. However, to be effective, these nutrients must be admitted into the cell.

When given in high concentration, IV or IM nutrients enter the cell by sheer force of numbers. Administering nutrients in a concentration great enough to force those nutrients into the cell by means of a high-concentration gradient as well as the ability of the cell wall to absorb them, is highly beneficial. Highly concentrated on the outside, the cell membrane is semi-permeable meaning that it admits the nutrients into the cell due to the high-concentration gradient that was created.

The only way to obtain this high concentration is by IV or IM administration. With the GI cells, the IV route is especially useful for this purpose, because it’s immediately absorbed. When oral absorption is not effective, the parenteral route proves to be the most effective option.

So if you find yourself suffering from any GI issues (gas, bloating, acid-reflux), hormone imbalances, hypothyroidism, menopause, Hashimotos, or even trying to prevent the common cold; an IV would be the best option for you. And for every one of my patients, I custom-make each and every IV, so that you get exactly what you need. No cookie cutter recipes in my office!

Naturally Repair Your Gut Issues

Comprehensive Support for Optimum Gastrointestinal Health

Are you someone suffering from GI disturbances such as leaky gut, chronic constipation, frequent diarrhea, acid reflux, or bloating and gas regularly? Then I am so happy you have found this article.

Your digestive system, also known as your “gut,” is comprised of the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract), and your liver, pancreas, and gallbladder. Your GI tract is made of hollow organs that run from your mouth to your anus. The lining of a healthy gut digests and absorbs the food you eat so that your body can utilize valuable nutrients and excrete waste. In the best-case scenario, this works like a well-lubricated engine. Unfortunately, chronic stress, medications, processed and inflammatory foods, alcohol, cigarettes, and other hormone changes can disrupt the lining of your gut.

When your inner gut lining is compromised, this can cause nutrients and other predigested substances to escape leading to an inflammatory response in your body that can be experienced as bloating, pain, cramps, acid reflux, irregular stools, joint pain, fatigue, depression, anxiety, brain fog, and insomnia.

Is your Gut Healthy?

When your gut is healthier, you feel better in general. You have a better mood, have more energy, and don’t suffer from weight issues. Signs of an unhealthy gut include gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, fatigue, moodiness and overall discomfort after eating. Some people can even suffer from symptoms when they haven’t eaten at all or wake up feeling gastric discomfort which persists throughout the day.

The Causes of an Unhealthy Gut

Being stressed greatly impacts cortisol levels, and stress can be a factor for some people. Medications can also negatively affect gut health while disturbing the micro flora. The use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids, antibiotics, antihistamines, caffeine, alcohol, and other prescription and nonprescription drugs renders the intestinal mucosa permeable to toxins and undigested food particles. Poor diet, alcohol and the consumption of animal products are key culprits to chronic inflammation within the gut causing a lowered immune response and overall integrity of the GI system overall.

Improving your Gut Health

  1. Consuming more Vegetables – vegetables provide our body with the nutrients it needs on a day-to-day basis and help to maintain general health as well as decreasing inflammation within the body. They also provide a good source of fiber to keep the gut healthy and help our body eliminate toxins.
  2. Eliminate Food Allergies –  when you are regularly consuming foods that you may not know you have a sensitivity to it creates a great deal of inflammation within the gut. This allows toxins to leak out of the digestive tract and into the bloodstream triggering a reaction that can create pain and inflammation in the gut. Discovering your food sensitivities is key to healing your gut issues. Dr. Nirvana’s Healthy Gut Program can help you to resolve this for good.
  3. Natural antihistamines such as Quercetin, Nettles, Astragalus, Turmeric, and Vitamin C IVs decrease the histamine response by the immune cells responsible for the allergic reactions and resulting symptoms.

Take Action to Heal your Gut for Good
