Are you eating grains that contain gluten-like wheat? Could it be making you sick? One out of 7 Americans suffers from a severe gluten intolerance. Dr. Josh Axe gives you healthier alternatives for many of the gluten-containing foods you might be eating now.

Gluten intolerance may cause digestive issues, osteoporosis, autoimmune disorders, and weight gain. Gluten is found in wheat, oats, rye, barley, and spelt. One out of every 33 people has been diagnosed with Celiac disease, which is a severe gluten intolerance. Gluten is a protein molecule that can cause leaky gut syndrome and severe allergic reactions.

Medical studies have found that gluten consumption increases the risk of osteoporosis, cancer, thyroid disorder, and weight gain. Replace gluten and wheat products with brown rice, quinoa, sweet potatoes, gluten-free pasta, bean, gluten-free flour and pancake mix and sprouted grains, like Ezekiel bread.

Sprouted grains, like Ezekiel bread, do contain wheat, but are much healthier options. Sprouting foods kill off the phytic acid, causing the gluten to become more easily digestible.

Action Steps:
1. Read food labels.
2. Go gluten-free!
3. Replace gluten products with healthy fruits and vegetables.
