Insulin Resistance / Hormonal Imbalance
Up to 10 percent of woman have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, a pre-diabetic condition in which symptoms are caused by insulin resistance. For woman with PCOS, symptoms such as infertility, energy levels and cystic acne have been reported as being greatly improved by removing gluten and dairy from diets along with a healthy lifestyle.
Celiac Disease is a digestive and autoimmune disorder that results in damage to the lining of the small intestine when foods with gluten are eaten.
Gluten intolerance is an inability to digest the protein found in wheat, rye, and barley, and certain types of oats. People with this intolerance notice symptoms such as chronic gastrointestinal upset, brain fog, and sinusitis.
Lactose Intolerance is when the body cannot easily digest lactose, a type of natural sugar found in milk and dairy products.
With milk allergy, the body produces a histamine-allergic response to the milk, alerting the body to create mucous and inflammation to fight what it believes to be a foreign invader.
