Work towards an eventual goal of committing a 90% focus on your Veggie type meal plan as presented, while allowing your liberty of choice within the remaining 10%. If you are following the gluten free meal plan simply be sure to avoid gluten within your 10% liberty choices. 4. As a general starting point it is best to consume more than half of your meal from carbohydrates (preferably from vegetables) with a preferred protein source and a small amount of fat. This will be fine tuned based on the results of your meal diary. 5. To achieve your optimal results as a veggie type it is best to drink 3 servings of fresh organic vegetable juice daily. 6. Drinking a fresh organic juice made with your veggie type meal plan vegetables, plus a small amount of acidic fruit, such as a lemon or lime, is the best way for a veggie type to start every meal. Make at least two thirds of every juice from very low glycemic and low glycemic vegetables from your meal chart. 7. Be sure to eat veggie type appropriate protein at every meal. a. Breakfast Proteins would include egg whites, cottage cheese, yogurt, kefir, milk*, natto, or whole grains (especially Oats) may have enough protein to satisfy a veggie type at breakfast. b. Lunch Proteins would include cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt, kefir, milk*, one whole egg* plus two or three additional egg whites, natto, fish, seafood, chicken breast or turkey breast. c. Dinner Proteins would include Cornish hen, ostrich, chicken breast, turkey breast, seafood, natto, one whole egg** with two or three additional egg whites, raw cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt, kefir or milk*. 8. Focus on making the correct food choices and eating in the right way. Always eat your most important food first and eat all the other foods on your meal plan in the right order! a. Provided are five days worth of breakfast, lunch, and dinner ideas to get you started on implementing your meal plan. b. Always remember that this is a process.

* Raw dairy. Unpasteurized dairy is only commercially available legally in the US in California. However there are no restrictions from you purchasing raw diary
directly from the farmer. You can contact your local health food store to see if they are aware of any raw dairy sources in your area. If that does not work you can go to http://www.realmilk.com/where2.html for other possible sources.

** Raw eggs. Many people are concerned about salmonella. While this is always a possible risk, it is quite small. The risk appears to be less than one in 30,000
for non-organic commercial eggs. The risk could be substantially lower for eggs obtained from healthy chickens. For more information on this subject, you can go to http://www.mercola.com/2002/nov/13/eggs.htm.

NOTE: If you are using low temperature cooking, the temperature should always be set at 225 degrees. Cook meat at 5 minutes per ounce and fish at 4 minutes per ounce. Always use a covered glass dish. Using low temperature cooking helps to maintain the nutritional integrity of your foods.

Tip number 6

Veggie Type
Tip number 1
Always chew your food thoroughly. Get in the practice of putting your fork down until you have swallowed your previous bite of food. This will aid in the absorption and assimilation of your foods as well as increasing the transition time through the colon. This is one factor that is a substantial advantage to all Nutritional Types.

Daily Tips

Always start your meal with vegetable juice or by eating a vegetable. Vegetable juice creates the best outcome based on your assessed nutritional type. Please be sure to consume vegetable juice and not fruit juice since fruit juice creates blood sugar instability that can create health challenges. However, you can use a small amount of fruit to add flavor to your vegetable juice.

Tip number 7
Focus on chicken and turkey breast as opposed to dark meat (legs & thighs) since this is preferred for your assessed Nutritional Type. Lighter meat is better since it has a lower fat content as well as an over-all balancing effect for you. Remember not to over-consume flesh protein even at lunch or dinner. Related Link

Tip number 2
Increase your consumption of vegetables. Eat them at every meal. It is also best to consume vegetables that grow above ground with more regularity than those that grow below ground. It would also be an advantage to consume these vegetables at the beginning of your meal to enjoy optimal results per your assessed Nutritional Type.

Tip number 8
Since vegetable consumption is so important for your assessed Nutritional Type, it would be advantageous to incorporate two salads per day with your meals. Be sure to vary the ingredients within your salads to keep your nutritional choices interesting. Variety even within your nutritional type is the spice of life.

Tip number 3
Reduce consumption of red meat and fats but do not eliminate fat as you should still be achieving approximately 10 - 15% of your meal from fat. Consuming leaner meats, seafood, and fowl is a definite advantage per your Nutritional Type. Please remember that you still need to consume protein and fat but simply in lower amounts.

Tip number 9
To the best of your ability purchase your vegetables from an organic source or from a local farmers market (seasonal). Remember that it is not only the types of foods and ratios but also the quality of the foods that is important. While we know that better quality generally means a higher cost, it is important to remember that consuming higher quality foods generally leads to a need for less food. Our bodies are not starving for quantity, they are starving for quality.

Tip number 4
Use a protein source such as eggs, cheese, yogurt, or natto at breakfast. Also quality steel cut oatmeal is an adequate source of protein for your assessed Nutritional Type as this is the highest protein content grain available. Typically speaking your assessed Nutritional Type does not respond well to a flesh protein for breakfast. It would be best to avoid this at that particular meal time. Related Link

Tip number 10
Incorporate lighter fish such as cod, flounder, halibut, orange roughy, tilapia and light tuna in your meal plan. These seafood choices are not only lighter in fat content but they also have a balancing affect for your assessed Nutritional Type. Remember that it is always important to use wild caught seafood as opposed to farm raised.

Tip number 5
Always include a fat and protein along with your vegetables, but keep your vegetable consumption at approximately 60% of your meal. Remember that regardless of your Nutritional Type it is important to consume protein, fat, and carbohydrates at every meal. The ratios and types of these macronutrients will vary.

Tip number 11
Eliminate all high purine foods such as organ meats, liver pate, liver sausage, herring, sardines, anchovies, mussels, and caviar. These foods typically create imbalances for your assessed Nutritional Type. Generally speaking, veggie types are not drawn towards these foods anyway.

Nutritional Typing Test - Veggie Type Tips

Tip number 12
One of the best additions for your assessed Nutritional Type is the use of fresh vegetable juice. If you want to reach your highest potential it is recommended you purchase a juicer to incorporate this into your meal planning. This will provide you with plenty of vitamins, minerals, and enzyme activity that will aid in your health goals. Related Link

Tip number 13
Your fresh juice should consist of less than 1/3 fruit juice and a high percentage of vegetables that grow above ground. It is best, however, to focus only on vegetables and possibly one lemon or lime added to the juice. This will aid in not only creating balance within your body but will also lead to a strong balance within blood sugar regulation. Related Link

Tip number 14
If you want to lose weight, you should reduce or eliminate higher glycemic foods such as fruit, grains, potatoes, and rice. If you do choose to incorporate these foods, have them in very small amounts and at the end of the meal. This will aid in your bodys regulation of blood sugar. Always remember that the biggest challenge that leads to weight gain and the raising of triglycerides are high glycemic carbohydrates which drive up glucose levels and insulin.

Tip number 2
Always eat your protein, fat, and carbohydrates together at every meal. Remember that it is very important to never exclude one of these macronutrients. An equal amount of protein and carbohydrates may be best. The ratios and types of these macronutrients will vary from person to person.

Tip number 3
Do not snack on carbohydrates -- even if they are so-called good carbs such as fruit. Fruit will fit into your meal plan, but as dessert. It is important to remember that even though fruit is a natural sugar, it is still sugar which leads to blood sugar instability and health challenges if used in excess.

Tip number 6
When preparing meals, work towards achieving equal amounts of protein and carbohydrates. This is an adjustment for many since we have become accustomed to a large salad with a small protein source. Remember that large quantities of carbohydrates are not best for your assessed Nutritional Type. Please dont leave out the fat since that macronutrient is also very important for you.

Tip number 12
When making a fresh vegetable juice, it is best to add raw cream and a raw egg to create a complete meal. and this This can be used as a meal replacement for breakfast. While introducing fresh veggie juice into your meal plan does require some work and the cost of a juicer, it is the best way to introduce a natural source of vitamins, minerals, and enzyme activity to aid in creating your optimal health goals.

Tip number 7
Work towards achieving approximately 20 - 25% of your meal from quality fats such as raw butter, cream or cheese, olive oil, coconut oil, avocado, nuts and seeds, and olives. Always remember to use Krill oil to achieve the much needed omega-3 fatty acids. If you are struggling with weight challenges, it is important to remember that fat consumption does not create weight gain. It is the consumption of high glycemic carbohydrates which leads to high insulin that is the true culprit in weight gain. Related Link

Instead of coffee in the morning drink hot water, two tablespoons of raw cream, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Its a very satisfying warm drink in the morning. Most individuals crave the warmth of their drink with some fat, so this provides a welcome alternative to coffee. If you are going to indulge in an occasional cup of coffee, please be sure that it is organic. If you are using decaf, please be sure that it is naturally decaffeinated with water.

Tip number 8
Optimal meals for your Nutritional Type would include, but are not limited to: small salads with a protein and fat source, stews, soups with heavy meat and vegetables/topped with cheese, and a meat chili without beans, topped with cheese. These types of meals create a good balance of all the necessary macronutrients for your assessed Nutritional Type.

Tip number 14
One of the goals of Nutritional Typing regardless of your individual Nutritional Type is adjusting the correct fuel mix for your individuality. In accomplishing this you will work towards consuming the smallest portions that would still provide you with strong, consistent, and lasting energy throughout the day. This is less taxing on your gastro intestinal tract which is an energy intensive system. It will leave you with increased energy for your bodily processes and more energy for your daily life.

Tip number 9
Only use higher glycemic foods such as fruits, gluten free grains, potatoes, and legumes at the end of your meal and in small amounts. These foods create blood sugar instability that can lead to multiple health challenges including weight gain. If your goal is to regulate blood sugar or to lose weight, it is best to use these foods sparingly or not at all. Adding a bit of fat when consuming these will slow the release of glucose.

Tip number 10
When making sandwiches use large romaine lettuce leaves filled with your protein source such as roast beef, chicken or turkey, fat such as avocado, raw cheese, or olives, and vegetables such as tomato, mushrooms, or bell peppers. This will provide a much more refreshing vehicle for your protein and fat than the use of bread. It also eliminates a known high glycemic food that creates challenges for most of our population.

Tip number 11
If you are looking for a vehicle for your favorite marinara, meat sauce, or alfredo, steam green beans or spaghetti squash in place of pasta and add your favorite sauce and shredded Romano or parmesan cheese. This is just another example of providing a low glycemic option to a regular challenging food in our culture. What most of us do not recognize is that the pasta is not really what we enjoy, but the sauce and grated cheese that we are truly craving.

1. Make a commitment to choose ALL of your foods from your protein type nutrition plan. 2. Eat as much fresh, organic food as possible. 3. Work towards an eventual goal of committing a 90% focus on your protein type meal plan as presented, while allowing your liberty of choice within the remaining 10%. If you are following the gluten free meal plan simply be sure to avoid gluten. 4. Please follow the Prime Protein type meal plan for your breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is a 3 part meal plan. Parts 1 & 2 are ESSENTIAL - part 3 is optional. Part 1: Eat high quality meat, fowl, fish, or seafood from the prime protein type meal plan at EVERY meal, and ALWAYS eat your meat, fowl, fish, or seafood FIRST! Part 2: Consume some very low glycemic and/or low glycemic vegetable nutrition with every meal! Also, consume at least one of the following complementary foods along with your vegetable nutrition: raw cream,* raw butter, raw cheese, coconut oil, natto, cottage cheese, eggs,** avocado, olives or olive oil, coconut, seeds, nuts, or nut butters. Part 3: You may consume artichoke hearts, carrots, peas, beans, lentils, gluten free grains, raw milk, raw kefir, raw yogurt, potatoes, winter squash, apple, pear or banana, but only in small amounts and only at the very end of your meal or not at all. Do not eat any of these foods at the start of a meal or in between meals as a snack. When eating part 3 foods always consume additional fat. 5. Provided are five days worth of breakfast, lunch, and dinner ideas to get you started on implementing your meal plan. 6. Always remember that this is a process. Make your best meal choice possible. Recognize that your best choice may vary. 7. Remember that for at least the first 60 days you will remain gluten free. Please be sure to have complete compliance with this. 8. At the end of 60 days gluten free you have two choices. One is to remain gluten free if you are having a positive response. The second is to reintroduce gluten to assess your individual level of gluten intolerance.

Tip number 1
Always chew your food thoroughly. Get in the practice of putting your fork down until you have swallowed your previous bite of food. This will aid in the absorption and assimilation of your foods as well as increasing the transition time through the colon. This is one factor that is a substantial advantage to all Nutritional Types.

If still hungry have an eggnog shake or sweet potato (with skin) and 1 T raw butter.

Increase your consumption of fat and include fat with every meal. Fat is very important for your Nutritional Type and you may need as much as 25 - 30% of your meal from fat to be at your best. This is especially important during the colder weather periods. It is important for those challenged with weight gain that consuming your fat is still very important and that fat consumption is not the cause of weight gain but it is the higher glycemic carbohydrates which raise insulin that is the main factor. Related Link

Tip number 5
Always eat a flesh protein at every meal -- even if it is in small amounts. It is generally best to get approximately 40% of your meal from a flesh protein to be at your best. However, within specific Nutritional Types there can be a variance in needs from one individual to the next, so the percentages are never written in stone. As you progress through the program you will learn to understand your individual needs.

Tip number 6
Only consume fruit at the end of the meal or not at all. When eating fruit, it is also best to eat fruit with the skin on. Eat it with added fat. These tips will aid in regulating blood sugar to promote balance within your body and aid in weight loss. However, fruit is not a necessity. It is recommended you consume most of your fruit during the warmer seasons of the year.

Tip number 12
Eat approximately equal amounts of fat as carbohydrates (preferably above ground vegetables). Even though we have been told to stop eating fat for decades it is important for you to achieve this higher fat intake. The key is to focus on low glycemic carbohydrates along with fat consumption. Some quality fats that can be used are raw butter, cream or cheese, olive oil, coconut oil, avocado, nuts and seeds, nut butters, and olives.

Tip number 7
Reduce your consumption of root vegetables if you are looking to reduce weight. These vegetables generally have a high glycemic index and create weight challenges among other potential health challenges. They are still quality nutritional foods, but best if used sparingly. If these are to be used please only eat them in small amounts, at the end of your meal, and always with added fat.

Tip number 13
When you eat fruit, primarily choose apples, pears, coconut, and green tipped bananas. Never use these as a snack. These should only be used at the end of the meal, in small amounts, and with added fat. Examples of this would be a half an apple with peanut butter, a half a pear with cheese, a banana with a small handful of nuts, or shredded coconut mixed in with some yogurt. If you are going to use other fruits other than those listed, choose fruit where you would consume the skin along with the fruit.

Tip number 8
Reduce your consumption of grains and eliminate all gluten containing grains. The non-gluten containing grains may be fine in small amounts, but please eat them sparingly and with added fat. Except for a small percentage of those assessed with your Nutritional Type, most do not respond well to grains and it may be best to eliminate or reduce these products.

Tip number 9
Always be sure to include a vegetable at every meal. But make it a smaller portion than your protein. Approximately 30% of your meal should come from vegetables to be at your best. Vegetables should always be eaten with fat to aid in the slower release of glucose and an improved use of energy in our body.

Tip number 10
Evaluate your willingness to consume high purine foods such as organ meats, liver pate, liver sausage, herring, sardines, anchovies, mussels, and caviar. These are foods that create a more substantial state of balance for most that are assessed as your nutritional type. While many do not naturally gravitate towards these foods you may want to experiment by adding them in. You may start craving these once your body recognizes the benefits that are provided. Once you achieve the balance you are looking for you may be able to add these back into your meal plan sparingly.

A Commonly Overlooked Health Hazard


by Dr. Dan Kalish There is no more contention around any health issue than the subject of how to choose foods that are right for you. People who want to eat healthy, nutritious foods are frequently confused about what to do. Many follow what they assume are healthy diets with the best intentions, only to unwittingly be causing health problems by eating foods that are harmful to them. The following discussion of this complex and misunderstood issue provides a starting point for making sensible food choices based on science, not opinions. The focus of this discussion will be on food intolerance and food allergies with a special emphasis on the newly discovered condition referred to as sub-clinical or hidden gluten intolerance. The purpose of this discussion is to help you understand the importance of eating foods that are well-tolerated and to teach the value of avoiding those foods that can lead to health problems.

Gluten Sensitivity

Additionally, there are sophisticated laboratory tests available that screen for food intolerance and food allergies to determine what speci c foods are right for you. These lab tests can be used by anyone seeking to determine reliable, science-based dietary recommendations. There are two general topics to investigate in determining the best diet for you. and diet that apply to all of us. Scientists have known for decades that proper blood sugar control is absolutely required for maintenance of appropriate fat levels, to have good cognitive function, and to stimulate healthy immune function. well-tolerated and health promoting for our unique body chemistry. well you have maintained your blood sugar control over time. Similarly, there are diagnostic tests

HIDDEN GLUTEN INTOLERANCE

articles, etc. It is clear that there is little to no consensus on what constitutes a healthy diet or how to go about choosing foods wisely. There are dozens of diets to help a person lose weight, enhance athletic performance, or incorporate foods such as soy products to help hormonal balance; in fact, there are diets for every imaginable purpose, but sorting through the contradictory advice has become so challenging that many people simply give up. Each week the media reports more and more information about the food pyramid has replaced the old four food groups. The challenge is each of us as individuals. First and foremost, any diet-related advice must be based on sound physiological principles, not on personal experiences, preferences, current fads or product marketing. Science can guide us in terms of explaining the basic requirements for normal human physiology and function when it comes to how to eat.

I will now address the subject of sub-clinical or hidden gluten intolerance. This recently discovered health problem is at epidemic proportions in certain populations in the United States and sadly is largely unrecognized. Later in this section, I will discuss lactose intolerance, sucrose intolerance and the subject of food reactions in more detail.

DEFINITION OF SUB-CLINICAL INTOLERANCE

Sub-clinical means hidden. In other words, there are often no obvious symptoms that would direct a doctor or patient to suspect subclinical conditions. Since symptoms arent obvious and sub-clinical consequences related to sub-clinical gluten intolerance without understanding the true cause of their problems. By their very nature, sub-clinical problems are hard to recognize and frequently go undetected de-

Sub-clinical gluten intolerance is often confused with a medical condition called celiac disease, celiac sprue or non-tropical sprue, sometimes referred to as gluten enteropathy or gluten intolerance. The reaction to gluten in celiac disease is similar to sub-clinical gluten intolerance, except as to the degree of intensity. -

Over the course of many years, there has been continual work to uncover the nature and extent of this problem in the United States and Europe. In 1994, a technological breakthrough in the form of a highly specialized salivary test for sub-clinical gluten intolerance made more comprehensive investigation into this problem possible.

ferent based on the severity or degree of damage.

Celiac disease is not hidden, or sub-clinical, and as such it is easier to diagnose. A person with celiac disease may have blood in their stool or experience disabling pain when they consume gluten-containing foods.

THE FIRST TESTS FOR SUBCLINCIAL GLUTEN INTOLERANCE

Other symptoms of celiac include steatorrhea, which is undigested and unabsorbed fat in the stool, and dermatitis herpetiformis, a skin condition. These obvious symptoms often lead doctors to recognize those with celiac in Others with celiac disease are not diagnosed until the adult years. In addition to the clinical presentation, celiac disease can be detected by a blood

Through laboratory research of this patient population of chronically ill individuals, it had become The observation that there was a genetic component to the condition narrowed the range of possible explanations. At one point, Dr. Timmins realized there could be a connection with the diets of this select group of patients and their unknown condition. When the initial salivary tests for sub-clinical gluten intolerance were run on several hundred people from this population, 80-85% tested positive. This outstanding discovery has now been demonstrated time and time again with a wide range of patients.

Some of these grains have lower concentrations of both gluten and gliadin than centration food source, is not well-tolerated by people with sub-clinical gluten intolerance. This dietary restriction eliminates bread, pasta, bagels, and cereals. There are rice and almond-based breads available, usually found in the refrigerated section of your local health food store. There are also rice, yam, and corn-based noodles, and cereals, crackers and other gluten free substitutes on the market.

Soy products can be very helpful for women who tolerate gliadin and have from Japan and China where gluten intolerance is not as common as it is in the United States. Additionally, the traditional diet of these Asian countries is rich in foods that help balance the negative issues associated with soy consumption. So, if you have sub-clinical gluten intolerance what can you eat? As already mentioned, rice, corn, millet, quinoa, amaranth, oats, and buckwheat are OK, unless you are allergic. There has been some debate about whether or not oats are safe, and while they do contain a small

Rice, corn, buckwheat, and millet have glutens, but the glutens in these foods do not contain the safe grains include quinoa and amaranth. In some cases people are allergic to rice, corn, buckwheat or millet, independent of the reaction to gluten/gliadin. Reading labels can be very misleading; dont trust them.

There are specialized immune cells that line the small intestine called immunocytes. These immune cells produce secretory IgA, a critical component of the

Good health requires proper digestion and absorption. Digestion is the mechanical and chemical breakdown of the food we eat. As food is digested, it needs to be absorbed. Absorption is the process of bringing the nutrients from our gastrointestinal tract into the rest of our bodys tissue. Digestion is initiated when we chew food and begin to break it down with digestive enzymes. Food then enters the stomach where further breakdown occurs from the presence of stomach acid, called hydrochloric acid, and pepsin, which together begin the breakdown of proteins. From the stomach the products of digestion enter the small intestine. The small intestine is called small because it is smaller in diameter than the large intestine. However, it is in fact longer and in many ways more crucial to our health than the large intestine. that stick out from the wall of the intestine into the lumen or center. These villi are between and 1 mm long, just barely visible to the human eye. On the ends of the villi are microvilli, sometimes referred to as the brush border. These two adaptations, villi and microvilli, increase the surface absorption area of the small intestine up to 1,000-fold. Its estimated that the entire absorptive area of the small intestine is roughly the size of a basketball court. This total area for absorption can be compromised by any condition that irritates the lining of the small intestine. In gluten intolerance, there is a destruction of the villi referred to as villus atrophy. This poor intestinal function caused by improper digestion of food is referred to as maldigestion or literally bad digestion. Inadequate absorption of nutrients is referred to as malabsorption. In other words the inability to get the vital nutrients your body needs delivered to your cells.

Therefore, parasites, bacteria, viruses, and yeast or fungal organisms can more easily infect someimmune defense is commonly referred to as depressed secretory IgA, which also can result in many other food reactions. This is because secretory IgA also helps the body handle food antigens.

THE PROBLEM WITH FOOD ANTIGENS

our immune system as OK or not OK. Antigens mark substances as foreign to the human body. The recognition of what is an OK antigen and what is not an OK antigen allows our immune system to attack and destroy harmful substances. For example, when you have a viral infection like the common cold, the viruses that infect us have antigen markers on their outer surfaces and our immune system recognizes these antigens and then makes antibodies to destroy the virus. Food is also foreign to the body and so has antigens. Typically we dont react to food antigens. However, in some people, food reactions do occur because of an inappropriate response of the immune system to antigens in food. Other people may be sensitive to pollen antigens or mold antigens and so have reactions to these

us more susceptible to antigens of all sorts. This can make a person highly reactive to food antigens who might not otherwise have this problem. This is another link between gastrointestinal stress and the immune system.

MUCOSAL LINING AND LEAKY GUT

CORTICOSTEROIDS

There are also many connections between subclinical gluten intolerance and other intestinal problems. To describe this connection in more detail, I will review the structure and function of the small intestine. The small intestine is constructed like a tube. The inside of the tube is the healthy mucosal lining. Mucosal tissues also line the sinus passageways, the lungs, the urogenital tract, the mouth, throat, and vaginal tract. These lining tissues act as vital barriers to defend the body from infectious organisms. The small intestine lining tissue also performs the crucial function of absorption of nutrients. increased permeability (also known as leaky gut syndrome) occurs. Leaky gut syndrome refers to the loss of integrity of this mucosal or lining tissue. Having leaky gut through.

CORTISOL THE STEROID YOU MAKE YOURSELF

With leaky gut syndrome, the lining of your intestine becomes overly permeable and molecules that were not intended to cross into your blood stream enter, or leak in. This leads to a great deal of immune stress as your body tries to handle all these uninvited guests.

Our body also makes its own corticosteroids, the most abundant of which is the hormone called

THE IMPORTANCE OF LACTEALS


Since cortisol is also one of the major modulators of immune function, this suppresses our immune response. As a matter of interest, this immune suppressing role of corticosteroids is used in medicine in certain circumstances when immune suppression is the goal. With organ transplants and in some serious autoimmune diseases, large doses of corticosteroids are used therapeutically to suppress immune function. However, in other situations this immune suppressing role of cortisol and corticosteroid medications works against our health. elevated cortisol suppresses our immune response, it also causes a catabolic (or breakdown) state to exist in our body. Symptoms of adrenal exhaustion will eventually appear such as fatigue, depression, loss of libido, allergies, frequent illness, etc.

Gluten reactions also cause other problems. There are structures called lacteals that are located in the tips of the villi, which can be destroyed by reactions to gluten. These lacteals are responsible for mised, it can result in healthy fats/oils not being absorbed that are critical to your health.

It is common for people with sub-clinical gluten intolerance to develop blood sugar problems, sometimes referred to as hypoglycemia. This is due to the negative e ects on digestion and absorption in sub-clinical gluten intolerant individuals

Depending on the extent of the problem, a person may need to use extensive nutritional supplementation to restore normal levels of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and essential fatty acids. These natural therapies can be used with great success, provided the appropriate foods are being eaten and normal gastrointestinal function has been restored. -

LACTOSE AND SUCROSE INTOLERANCE

The carbohydrate portion of milk is referred to as lactose or milk sugar. Lactose intolerance frequently accompanies gluten intolerance. our body and are vital for normal brain function. rotransmitters to communicate. They are made from amino acids found in protein-containing foods. So improper digestion and/or Lactase, a specialized enzyme that aids digestion of lactose in milk products is usually lacking in people with sub-clinical gluten intolerance. Lactase breaks down lactose or milk sugar in the same way sucrase enzymes breaks down sugar or sucrose. Damage to the architecture of the intestinal wall and the subsequent decrease in enzymes for lactose and sucrose digestion leads to problems in digesting dairy products such as cheese, ice cream, and all types of milk products as well as sugar containing foods. need to avoid cows milk products. As the villi on the intestinal lining heal from a gluten free diet, some individuals will be able to tolerate dairy products again in nine months to a year. In other people, there will be a more or less permanent sensitivity to dairy products. However, in the initial 6 to 9 months of eliminating gluten, it is absolutely required to avoid all lactose-containing milk and dairy products because ing. This includes the complete elimination of cows milk products such as cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese, and milk.

LACTOSE HOME TEST

However, delayed food allergies are hard to identify because the reaction may not appear for hours

Some people, even in the absence of gluten intolerance are lactose intolerant and simply do not produce lactase enzymes and so cannot digest dairy products containing lactose. Other people may be allergic to the proteins of milk and not be lactose intolerant. Many people will be milk protein allergic and lactose intolerant at the same time. There is a simple home challenge for lactose intolerance. While this test may not reveal every case of lactose intolerance, it will help to identify many people who are. You may be allergic to the proteins of milk even though you are not lactose intolerant. HOME TEST: Upon awakening, drink a large glass (8-12 oz.) of whole milk on a completely empty stomach. Do not eat or drink anything else for 3 to 4 hours. If you experience bloating, gas, diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, mucous in the throat or abnormal bowel habits, you are likely lactose intolerant. In some cases, the symptoms may not appear immediately, but will be noticed within 24 hours. If you experience no reaction whatsoever, you probably are not lactose intolerant. There is a home test for sucrose intolerance also. First thing in the morning, add two teaspoons of pure sugar to a large glass of water. Stir well and drink. Do not eat or drink anything for three to four hours and check for any abdominal discomfort, bloating, gas or other digestive symptoms. If present, suspect sucrose intolerance.

You will then know what foods to avoid and what foods are safe. It is important to employ one of these options, since eating foods that you are allergic to every day can interfere with healing of the intestinal tract.

ALLERGY VS. INTOLERANCE

There is a great deal of confusion and misinformation about food allergies and gluten. Gluten intolresponse due to the reaction to the gliadin molecule in gliadin sensitive individuals.

MULTIPLE DELAYED FOOD ALLERGIES

Sub-clinical gluten intolerance has a genetic basis, meaning it passes from generation to generation. Gluten intolerance is found most frequently in those with Irish, English, Scottish, Scandinavian, and other Northern European and Eastern European heritages. The latest research study published in the British Medical Journal in November of 1998 found previgluten intolerance. They found approximately one in 150 people with this condition. It is suspected the levels of sub-clinical gluten intolerance are much higher. Sub-clinical gluten intolerance and celiac occur less frequently in non-European populations. It is important to note that many people who are gluten intolerant do not test positive on food allergy testing for wheat, rye, barley, and other gluten-containing grains. Do not be misled by the fact that you do not test positive to these gluten-containing foods. You still

Sub-clinical gluten intolerance often leads to the development of multiple delayed food allergies. Leaky gut syndrome and the accompanying premature leaking of food antigens into the bloodstream cause this. In time, this overexposure to food antigens causes the immune system to react, and foods that would otherwise be tolerated can become allergenic. Although the problem with food allergies is generated by the damage from gluten, removal of gluten circumstances, your doctor may recommend a 4 to 5 day food rotation diet. Many books are available from your local bookstores on food rotation diets. food allergies are usually easy to recognize for example, you eat a strawberry and get a rash. These dont usually require testing to determine.

Some people who are constitutionally strong and have good adrenal function and eat moderate amounts of gluten containing foods may never experience obvious symptoms. With or without obvious symptoms, intestinal damage is still taking place.

tors taken together create a situation where parasite infections can take hold and become chronic. Parasites deeply embedded in the intestinal lining can even be resistant to powerful antibiotic treatments. Because of this, people with gluten intolerance need to rule out the possibility that they are harborthese chronic infections cleared.

FOOD ALLERGIES AND FOOD CRAVINGS

Along with food allergies come food cravings, and it has frequently been observed that people crave that which they are allergic to. There have been many theories postulated as to why this is the case; at this point they are all speculafoods all the time there is a high probability that you are allergic to them.

CANDIDA

There is a relationship between Candida, an opportunistic organism in the gastrointestinal tract, and food intolerances. mune response in the intestinal lining. This weakened mucosal immune defense can open the door for Candida to overpopulate and become invasive Candida (invasive means to invade and attach itself to the healthy mucous lining of the intestines).

ALCOHOL AND GLUTEN

A special note about alcohol and gluten: Hard alcohol and beer are made from grains that contain gliadin and are to be strictly avoided. Wines on the other hand, are made from grapes and therefore do not contain gluten/gliadin. However, if gluten/gliadin is ingested along with any alcohol, the gliadin is immediatefore, if you are gluten intolerant you must be 100% sure your meal is gluten free if you are to have any form of alcohol with your meal.

Lack of reproductive hormones leads to disruption of the normal menstrual cycle, causing PMS or menopausal symptoms. weakening of the bones. Even if women take estrogen and calcium supplements, they may not be adequately absorbed.

PARASITES

The structural changes to the environment of the small intestine from gluten intolerance create the perfect habitat for development of pathogenic infections. elongating of these crypts, referred to as crypt hyperplasia and deepening of the crypts, makes for a deep pocket where a pathogen such as a parasite can survive by evading the usual immune surveillance that occurs in the lining tissue.

Meal Preparation and Recipes


GLUTEN SENSITIVITY SUMMARY
We understand that it is a challenge to remove gluten from your diet, so instead of focusing on the negative and giving you a list of what to remove, we will focus on the positive and provide examples of what a gluten free meal looks like. At the very end of these examples are recipes for some non-gluten baked goods and a our replacement recipe to be used only sparingly during those times that you are looking for a baked treat. Please remember that gluten free does not necessarily equate to good health. Most gluten free products bought in our markets today are still an over processed poor carbohydrate that creates blood sugar challenges, and may eventually lead to poor health. A veggie type may be able to use these products on occasion, a mixed type more than likely will struggle with these, and a protein type should still avoid these foods. There are some very effective marketing strategies when it comes to gluten free packaged products like cookies, crackers, beer, breads and the like. Please dont be fooled into believing that gluten free makes them good for you. Quite simply, they are still very poor food choices for you, so please partake of them sparingly, or not at all. Some of the meal ideas below incorporate low temperature cooking. It is recognized that cooking your food at higher temperatures will have an adverse effect on the nutrients within the food. To utilize low temperature cooking, use a glass casserole dish such as a Pyrex pan, and always use a lid on this dish for the cooking process. Cook at 225 degrees at 4 minutes per ounce for sh and seafood, and 5 minutes per ounce for all other meats. This will not only aid in maintaining a higher nutrient content, but will enhance the taste of your food. As a part of the initial 60 days of becoming gluten free, it is also recommended to remove pasteurized dairy from your meal plans. Dairy products are listed in some of the meal plans below, but it specically mentions raw dairy. Raw dairy can be used during this 60 days generally without any challenges. Please visit www.realmilk.com to nd a raw dairy connection in your area. We are pleased that you have made the choice to educate yourself not only on the aspect of a gluten free lifestyle, but also regarding your own bio-chemical nutritional needs with nutritional typing. We welcome you to the wonderful world of balanced optimal health! This is the beginning of a journey that can last a lifetime.
