Discuss this and more ...Gluten sensitivity affects more than 40% of the population and may be the underlying cause to countless ailments from joint inflammation to ADHD. 90% of people with an inflammatory disease like Arthritis and autoimmune diseases like Asthma and Lupus are gluten-intolerant. Due to manipulation of wheat crops, there is over 50% more gluten found in today’s grain than 100 years ago. Gluten intolerance does not only cause digestive ailments. In fact, for every one person with digestive related symptoms, there are at least 7 others without a single digestive upset but they are still gluten-intolerant with different, seemingly unrelated symptoms. During this PowerPoint presentation on the Science Behind Gluten, you will learn what happens when you eat gluten and how many people it affects negatively. Ask questions throughout! This class is so big, I must break it into three parts. I also offer a 21-days to Living Gluten-free Coaching Program for those who want more guidance.

The three areas that are most important in protecting and bolstering the immune system are diet and nutrition, exercise, and stress reduction.
