(Newswire.net -- June 27, 2014) Sugar Land, TX -- The Gluten Free Society has released a video featuring Dr. Peter Osborne’s interview on Fox News. The discussion is on how common dieting trends and food choices, for those who are gluten intolerant, often are misleading or inaccurate. Food allergies are on the rise and more people than ever are suffering from gluten sensitivities. Throughout the video Dr. Osborne discusses what has caused the increase in food allergies and why it is important to stop treating only the side effects of the disease.
The first question asked by the interviewer is “why are food allergies on the rise?” Dr. Osborne is quick to reply that there are numerous reasons but the most noteworthy is the fact that food supplies have changed more in the last thirty years than they did in the previous ten thousand. Genetic manipulation has caused the gluten content of grains to double in the same time frame. Additionally, the chemical pesticides and herbicides in the food grown people has resulted in people not having enough time to evolve to tolerate these changes.
As a board certified clinical nutritionist and functional medicine expert Dr. Peter Osborne has spent many years researching the effects gluten has on people. Unfortunately, his research has found that many of the foods recommended to replace gluten products are still dangerous for consumers suffering from food sensitivities and intolerances. For example, bread, pasta, and cereals that are advertised as gluten-free are made with corn, rice, or other grains. However, these grains often trigger a similar response for patients who have a gluten sensitivity because the immune system reacts equally to all types of grain. Gluten sensitivities encompass far more than just the well-known celiac disease and there are many unknown symptoms that stem from it. For further reading on this look at a recently published article featuring Dr. Osborne titled Can Gluten Sensitivity Cause Bone Loss. The interview also answers the important question “how can people tell they are suffering from a gluten intolerance?”
In the video, Dr. Osborne clarifies how traditional tests for gluten intolerances only check for an immune response but it is often hard to get an accurate result from this method. For a more accurate result, he recommends using DNA testing which checks to see if people have the genetic propensity to react to gluten. Dr. Peter Osborne cites a recent study where thousands of people who went gluten free using the traditional routine would not heal and when their gut inflammation markers were tested, they remained the same. People are becoming increasing aware that gluten intolerance is a real problem and more people than ever are suffering from a sensitivity. Dr. Osborne notes that people who have weird symptoms that hard to diagnose or relieve are often attributed to a food sensitivity.
The interview mentions that in order to fully recover people would not only have to eliminate gluten from their diets but also must go completely grain free. Grains are inducers of many autoimmune diseases, being tied to one hundred and ninety of them, and intestinal permeability. One of the most diagnosed autoimmune diseases is discussed in detail by Dr. Osborne in this article: Dr. Peter Osborne Explains Hypothyroidism. He also emphasizes the importance of treating the root cause of the disorder. Often medications are prescribed to treat the side effects and symptoms caused from these food allergies and suffers never find the relief they need.
