Health professionals find the problem highly controversial, since 1% or less of the population suffers from celiac disease, a severe form of gluten intolerance classified as an autoimmune and digestive disorder that damages the small intestine. (2)

Many people who don’t have full-blown celiac disease have problems with eating gluten, and a 2013 survey indicates a full third of Americans actively avoid or try to cut back on gluten. (3)

Wheat is the most common source of gluten in the diet, along with other cereal grains like barley, rye, and spelt. Gluten is made up of a family of proteins, the two most prominent of which are gliadin and glutenin. [click to continue…]

Insulin resistance symptoms and treatment


Insulin resistance occurs when cells no longer respond to the message delivered by insulin. The pancreas secretes more insulin to try to fix the situation, and excess circulating insulin can build up to create a condition called hyperinsulinemia.

Kidney stones symptoms and treatment

Kidney stones are clumps of mineral that accumulate from dissolved materials on the inner lining of the kidneys.

The kidneys are important to regulate the body’s fluid levels, filter wastes and toxins from the blood, regulate blood pressure, activate vitamin D to maintain healthy bones, direct production of red blood cells and keep blood minerals (sodium, potassium and phosphorous) in balance (1).

Every 30 minutes the kidneys filter all the blood in the body, removing excess waste and excess fluid. When a kidney stone develops, it not only blocks the urinary tract, but also can lead to an infection in the bladder and lead up the kidneys themselves, putting the person at high risk for severe health issues and in need of medical attention.
