Life In a Nutshell: Simple wisdoms for connecting to self and spirit
I was coaching one of my nutrition and weight management clients the other day and he asked why I encourage people to avoid grains-especially refined grains. Given all the conflicting information available I thought I would share my answer with you.
Wheat, refined grains, and gluten create a reaction in the intestines that sets off all kinds of problems and symptoms.. The ultimate effect of this is slow destruction of the lining of the small intestine that ends up causing things like leaky gut syndrome, nutritional deficiencies, and autoimmune reactions. Grains that are processed and refined have no nutritional value, they mess with insulin levels and can lead to many negative health conditions. So- my recommendation is to avoid them!
