Gluten and Grains – All Posts

In my clinic I see many people with autoimmune conditions, gastrointestinal problems, neurological and cutaneous (skin) diseases. A remarkably high percentage of them are intolerant to wheat, gluten or other grains. In some cases they have found no improvement with a gluten-free diet, or have been told by their doctor that they are not coeliac, but once they eliminate all or nearly all grains they have show remarkable improvements.

Articles in this section look at the emerging evidence. You can find our grain free recipes here.

Vegetarians have more oral candida species – and they’re the highly pathogenic kind

Candida albicans is the yeast that causes thrush when it gets out of control and can even become life threatening in immunocompromised patients. Despite this, Candida albicans is a commensal, meaning it is part of the natural flora found in and on humans – so many people have it, for example, in their oral cavities where for the most part it doesn’t cause any trouble. In recent years, however, new pathogenic species of Candida have been on the rise. These species are particularly resistant to anti-fungal treatment and cause more life threatening conditions so are an increasing cause for concern. Continue reading
