Gluten Intolerance and Wheat Intolerance
Gluten is the general name for the storage of proteins found in wheat, oats, rye, and barley. It is the substance that gives the rubber, elastic texture in bread. It helps glue the bread and cakes together so they don't crumble.
There is an amazing variety of reactions that occur to gluten, but conventionally trained doctors only recognise coeliac disease, the most serious type. Coeliac disease is an autoimmune-type reaction in which the body reacts so strongly to gluten that it causes malabsorption of nutrients. It is possible to experience Coeliac Disease symptoms but test negative for Coeliac Disease.
Possible Symptoms Of Gluten Intolerance
More commonly, symptoms that can be the result of food intolerances (allergy type 3) include:
- bloating and gas
- abdominal pain
- stomach cramps
- fatigue or
- unexplained headaches
When you have wheat or gluten intolerance, your immune system is hypersensitive to one of the proteins in wheat or gluten so your system reacts against the protein.
The symptoms of wheat-gluten allergy are not the same for everyone; they vary between individuals and can begin a few minutes after eating a wheat-gluten product, or it can take several hours for symptoms to appear.
The most common factor and most recognizable symptom among patients is there is an impaired ability to digest wheat or gluten products that can lead to gastro-intestinal, dermatologic, or respiratory symptoms.
When we continually eat the same types of food eg. wheat or gluten products, our body can build up a resistance and when it reaches a threshold the result is in the form of physical symptoms such as those described above.
Patient Success Stories
"It works! I am so glad I did the tests! It's pretty amazing to me. I have been looking for the answer to migraines since I was 13 and I am now 56. I have talked to every Dr. I came in contact with. So, help then comes from half way around the world, via the internet, with a lab in Germany. Go figure. To me, it's the equivalent of making a moonshot, lol!"
"My digestive problems have done a 180 degree turn, my mood is changing to a more pleasant one and I have already dropped a pant size"
Eva, Castle Hill NSW
"I have had a huge improvement over the past 36 hours it's been amazing really!!!"
Wendy, Noosa QLD
"I am so thankful this test was available. Since being on this diet, I have felt the best I have felt in a very long time."
Caron - Blue Mountains, NSW
"Thank you so much, ImuPro has changed my life. I have gone from sleeping 20 hours out of 24 to being up and about, back to my life."
Hamish - Napier, New Zealand
"I was delighted to receive my results from Imupro recently. I was very impressed by the comprehensive nature of the analysis. As a practicing G.P. ordering pathology tests all the time, one expects a brief set of figures with very little in the way of discussion. This is not the case with Imupro."
