#2 Gut Killer-Gluten

Mass-produced breads and snack foods often contain genetically-modified grains that have not been allowed to germinate in their natural patterns. Instead they are comprised of larger size proteins (meaning hard to digest) and contain components which are altered to attack the gut of any bugs that may harvest on the grain. In turn as we consume more bread/wheat long-term we too get affected. Traditional practices of soaking, fermenting and sprouting grains help neutralize the effect of gluten, making it far more digestible however most of us don’t have the time or energy to fit this into our busy lives.

It is known now that an estimated 1 in 133 Americans have Celiac Disease (most of these people have no idea). Celiac is a condition in which people experience a destructive, inflammatory autoimmune response in their small intestine after eating gluten.

Additionally, around 18 million people have gluten intolerance or sensitivity in the USA. While Celiac disease causes significant damage to the intestine, gluten intolerance can cause wide-range inflammation which is often manifested more subtly in chronic conditions such as heart disease, migraines, infertility, depression/anxiety and ADHD just to mention a few.

 How do you know if you have a gluten intolerance or sensitivity?

 One way to find out is to do an elimination diet. You need to get out all the top allergens (soy, corn, gluten/wheat, dairy and peanuts) and follow a simple diet for minimum one week. This is great time to incorporate a Pure Simple Juice Cleanse as then you don’t have to worry about what to eat or not, you just drink juices and let your body rest. Following the elimination you then slowly reintroduce foods one at a time and monitor for any symptoms of intolerance/sensitivity (rash, indigestion, gas, acne, stuffy nose and the list goes on). It is helpful to work with a Naturopath, Dietitian or other licensed practitioner to assist with the process (check out our ‘additional healing therapy section’ for local recommendations & if your cleansing I’ll be happy to answer your questions/concerns).

5 Foods to Avoid Before A Cleanse

Nutrition from the DietitianI was recently discussing the basics of a cleanse and was asked about the length of the cleanse being 3-or 5 days and if that was enough time for one to “really cleanse”. My answer, our bodies are constantly filtering, detoxifying and metabolizing so although you know it or not, your body is always cleansing. By following a very simple whole foods diet, drinking only fresh juices as part of juice cleanse or water fasting, all cleansing practices, you can minimize the load you put on your body and allow it time and energy to heal.

On that note, although the Pure Simple Juice Cleanse is typically 3-or 5 days of just juice, my recommendation is to cleanse to juice and then slowly reintroduce foods. Making the average length of a cleanse at least one week.

5 Foods to AVOID (limit) before & after a cleanse

1. Sugar. There is no “good” or “okay” amount of refined sugar in your diet, many people would classify sugar as a dietary toxin. Despite the loose guidelines given by the USDA, refined sugar can lead to excess weight gain, blood sugar swings, increased insulin output and in some cases diets high in sugar have been linked to cancer and heart disease. Bottom line, leave it out. Instead choose naturally sweet foods such as fresh fruit, dried fruit and/or raw juice. Healthiest sweeteners: date sugar (made from dried dates) and blackstrap molasses.

2. Alcohol. A definite toxin and cause of dehydration it’s best to take it easy with alcohol going into the cleanse, especially avoiding alcohol the evening before the cleanse.

3. Wheat. Increasingly more and more people are developing wheat allergies and intolerances. This highly inflammatory grain is often the root of some digestive issues and is a common allergen. This means avoid most all processed food products, bread, pasta and cereals.

4. Dairy. Also a common allergen and food that often people develop intolerances to later in life, dairy is best to reduce and limit before and after the cleanse.

5. Caffeine. Much beloved in Portland, caffeine is okay and even proven to be beneficial in small doses. It’s the giant latte’s full of cream and sugar and double/triple shots of espresso that can cross the line.  Pre-cleanse it’s best to reduce your caffeine intake and ideally take a little break while cleansing. Alternatives include tea and Dandy Blend or Teeccino, both coffee alternatives.
