Gluten-Free: Is it Just a Fad?

By Ritamarie Loscalzo


It’s becoming an increasingly well-known fact that there is a serious issue with many of our diets. There are more and more products popping up on the grocery shelves with a new label: Gluten-free

What does it mean for you?

When we eat the gluten in these grains, it can cause health problems. Gluten can also cause problems in your skin and nervous system, as well as problems with depression and behavior.

Some symptoms of Gluten Sensitivity are:

Depression, migraines, ADHD, autism, obsessive compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, balance problems, epilepsy, inability to concentrate, autoimmune thyroid disease, and dermatitis, are amongst the many non-digestive disorders that have now been linked to gluten intolerance.
