For years the standard for gauging dietary compliance has been calorie counting.  We have all been guilty of it.  Frankly, it is pretty difficult not to get suckered into counting calories.  After all, food manufacturers even add up and break them down on every label you pick up.  Yet, here is the irony.  For what appears to be an effort in transparency, the reality of what is in your food is still hidden.  So, if more energy, increased motivation, weight loss, or any other health related change is something you desire, then maybe it’s time to rethink calorie counting.

Autoimmune Cause Commonly Mislabeled as Gluten Reaction

There is an autoimmune cause commonly mislabeled as gluten reaction.  Gluten is a cause of autoimmunity.  It can be the culprit of your autoimmunity.  However, there is another piece to the story you have not been told.  Other items can mimic gluten.  Other substances resemble gluten.  This confusions the immune system.  Even when you think you have removed gluten, you have not removed the reaction.  I am sorry to tell you, but if this is you, your autoimmunity is not going to get better.

Why You Were Unsuccessful on a Gluten Free Diet

You tried gluten free didn’t you?  Let me guess, it did not work.  I cannot tell you the number of patients I see that still have symptoms after going gluten free.  For years I have told patients that autoimmunity is complex.  It requires experience to manage.  More importantly, you cannot simply look at autoimmunity as having a single cause.  It has multiple causes.  Don’t misunderstand, gluten can be a cause.  I do not advocate the consumption of traditional processed grains.  If you eat them, your risk of autoimmunity significantly increases.  Yet, you have already tried eliminating gluten, and here you still are fighting autoimmunity.

3 Must Have Causes of Autoimmunity

If you are reading this, you or someone you know is likely dealing with autoimmunity.  Autoimmunity can be a bit confusing.  After all your immune system is attacking you.  Ideally it should limit attacks to foreign substances or organisms such as bacteria and viruses.  When an autoimmune condition is present, have you ever thought to ask yourself, what caused my immune system to turn on me?  What changed that caused the immune system to suddenly flip.  And I do mean suddenly.

Many often ask me, why am I having problems now when I have never had them before.  You have probably asked yourself the same question related to autoimmunity.  You may be shocked to know that the answer is not that difficult when you consider the cause, or better stated causes of autoimmunity.  Something that I need you to understand before I continue on is that there is not a single cause for autoimmunity.  There are causes.  In fact, autoimmunity is like the perfect storm.  You have to have several events that come together just right to great a catastrophic event.  That my friend is autoimmunity.

I hear you.  “Give me the causes.”  I will, but hold on for a second.  I have not given you the big picture.  In addition to these large causes of autoimmunity, there are other considerations that sometimes get blamed as the cause of autoimmunity, but more specifically only amplify the effect.  To prevent the confusion, I am going to share those with you as well.
