Natural Health Reviews - Gluten Intolerance

Introducing National Nutrition's newest Youtube series "Natural Health Reviews". We sit down with Naturopathic Doctor Jonathan Beatty, as he discusses Gluten Intolerance and how you can treat this annoying condition.

Gluten is the combination of two proteins, gliadin and glutenin, which exist in varying amounts in the endosperm (the inside) of most grass related grains, such as wheat and rye. These proteins give dough its elasticity, allow leavening, and keeps baked goods chewy and cohesive. Gluten intolerance varies in severity, from mild to a severe intolerance, called Celiac’s disease. Symptoms include diarrhea, bloating, cramping, abdominal pain and vomiting 1-3 hours after consumption of gluten containing foods.
