Q: Many people are allergic to dairy as well as Gluten. The allergies seem to go hand in hand. Why is that?

The Short Answer:

  • every gluten molecule contains 15 receptor sites for Opioid Exorphins
  • every casein molecule contains 8 receptor sites for Opioid Exorphins

Both, glutens and casein, are addictive (their morphine/opioid connection!)

The (medium) Long Answer:

Both tend to destroy the gut mucosa barrier in those genetically not set up to handle them.
Since there is no health without a healthy gut mucosa, ingesting gluten and/or casein may trigger:
  • inflammation (acute and/or chronic, i.e. build-up over time)
  • -> over time leading to leaky gut syndrome
  • -> food and environmental toxins being dumped directly into the bloodstream

As a result the body tries to quench the inflammation:

  • leaching of calcium from bones and teeth to buffer blood pH value
  • -> bone loss, tooth enamel loss, osteopenia, osteoporosis
  • -> rheumatoid arthritis, osteo arthritis, fibromyalgia

All this leads to…

  • lack of mineral, nutrient absorption
  • -> physical / mental weakness, tiredness, chronic fatigue syndrome, etc.
  • -> sleep disturbance
  • -> heart irregularities, anxiety

and also:

  • kidney issues, UTI
  • shortness of breath, asthma, allergies

Over time the system develops…

  • weakened immune system
  • thyroid and adrenal issues
  • fertility problems
  • skin issues

etc., etc.

TESTING

These days it is so easy to “test” for the necessary underlying genes that predispose an individual to gluten and/or casein sensitivity. When we know if our body runs on “gasoline” or on “diesel” we will be able to avoid most health issues by feeding the body the right fuel.
