LOW GLYCEMIC CARBOHYDRATES
In addition to the need for complete nutrient intake, many people have high blood sugar which requires them to eliminate high glycemic carbohydrates. The truth is everybody will benefit from a low glycemic diet. People that consume a diet high in refined carbohydrates are often fraught with health problems and don’t even know why. The International Diabetes Federation warns that even non-diabetics with postprandial glucose above 140 mg/dL (normally measured two hours after a meal) are at significant risk for many diseases including retinal damage to the eye, arterial blockage, oxidative stress, increased inflammation, endothelial dysfunction, reduced coronary blood flow and increased risk for cancer. There is also clinical evidence that high glucose levels interfere with proper hormone balance and serotonin levels.
Gluten is the protein found in wheat and other grains. Gluten sensitivity has been associated with blood disorders, dermatitis, endocrine disorders, gastrointestinal diseases, neurological disorders, connective tissue disorders, myositis, precancerous states and some cancers. If a person has high anti-gliadin antibodies the immune system is activated and inflammation is active throughout the body. Often eliminating gluten alone can have tremendous impacts on one’s health.
Between lactose intolerance and sensitivity to casein, dairy products can cause problems anywhere from increasing silent inflammation to acute gastrointestinal, dermatological and respiratory problems. Eliminating dairy products from ones normal diet can produce immediate relief from seemingly chronic problems.
