Gluten Intolerance and the Benefits of Breast Milk – Good and Bad?
By: Dr. Vikki Petersen
I have always been a big proponent of breast feeding. Children who are breastfed are found to have higher IQs and a better overall health status. The benefits that Mother Nature packs in mother’s milk has not been successfully mimicked by any man-made product. Far from it, in fact –the formulas on the market are quite atrocious when it comes to nutritional standards for health.

Gluten Intolerant? Be Careful of ‘Everything in Moderation’ Advice
By: Dr. Vikki Petersen

Gluten intolerance, be it celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, creates a lot of stress on the body. Through malabsorption, inflammation and a host of other damaging factors, it is no wonder that the stress gland itself would be similarly affected.

There is much controversy within the lupus community about whether a gluten-free diet helps alleviate symptoms of lupus. The medical community acknowledges that some patients with lupus can also have celiac disease (an autoimmune intolerance to gluten, the protein found in wheat, rye and barley). However, the medical community has not acknowledged a link between lupus and non-celiac gluten intolerance. To understand the difference between celiac disease and non-celiac gluten intolerance, go to Food Sensitivities, Intolerances, and Allergies on The Food Philosopher’s website.
