• Gliadin protein initiates the first step in autoimmune diseases.
• Gliadin protein has the unique capacity to open the barriers between enterocytes, between intestinal cells and allow entry of foreign molecules.
• This is reflected by an increase in serum zonulin levels.
The zonulin protein is a mediator of intestinal permeability.
• Wheat and grain elimination is a very powerful first step in trying to reverse, or at least minimize the expression of about 200 autoimmune conditions.
Having removed wheat and grains it is very common to see:
Rheumatoid arthritis recede or go away.
The inflammation in organs and skin, of lupus, will recede
The high antibody levels in Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis will drop
Skin inflammation, like seborrhea, or psoriasis, or eczema will recede
Inflammation in the gastro-intestinal tract, particularly ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s Disease will recede rapidly.
