The Complete Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity Series

March 02, 2015

I know what you are thinking. Gluten free is annoying. You can’t wait for it to go away so you can go out to dinner without the embarrassment of your friend asking the waiter if each item on the menu is gluten free. You preferred when they were a vegetarian. At least then you could eat your naan bread and channa masala in peace without them giving you the stink eye.

What if I told you that non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) is a real medical condition that can be backed up by science and research? What if I told you that for those with a high level of intolerance, avoiding gluten could actually save their life? What if I told you that if you have NCGS it could manifest not as a digestive issue, but a neurological disease that may not be expressed now, but after many years from eating gluten?
