Inflammation is the body’s/persons response to a problem. When your body thinks there’s a constant problem, it lives in a chronic state of inflammation. This steady, low level inflammatory state underlies all chronic disease and suppressed immunity. Essentially, it’s at the root cause of just about every disease in imaginable. So what causes inflammation in the body? One of the main things is high sugar/carbohydrate consumption. Eating high sugar/carbs causes a massive insulin spike. This results in a heavy sugar crash. The body perceives an emergency and causes a cortisol response. This is alarming to the body. This causes inflammation in the body. Inflammation then triggers disease. The daily cycle of this process takes a toll of the body. You age faster. Hold on to fat. Feel tired and sluggish. Get sick. Go low sugar/carbs unless you are training hard. Ok?
Why I don’t eat Bread.
1. All types wheat (including whole wheat) have a high glycemic index (GI), which can increase your glycemic load and create Type 2 diabetes over time. Amylopectin A is a complex carbohydrate that is broken down quickly in the mouth and can raise blood sugar more than 6 teaspoons of sugar. Eating just two slices of whole wheat bread will raise blood sugar more than a Snickers bar.
2. Amylopectin A is a starch in wheat that triggers an increase of dangerous small LDL particle formation which is low density cholesterol that can get clog blood vessels. A diet high in carbohydrates such as bread will create too much small dense LDL.
3.Wheat has gliadin which is an addictive opiates that stimulates our appetite throughout the day and impairs our ability to say no to high carbohydrate foods. These exorphins cause food obsession and unbearable hunger.
4.Genetic manipulations were used in the 1970′s to create a high-yield, short and stocky strain of wheat which creates an agricultural Frankengrain. These changes to the plant altered the amino acid profile, meaning the wheat of today has totally different effects on our delicate digestive systems than the grains of early agricultural times.
5.Wheat consumption stimulates an excess of female hormones in men which reduces testosterone, creating male breasts and erectile dysfunction.
6.Amylopectin A is a starch in wheat that sets off a vicious cycle of deep abdominal belly fat and hormone havok. Extra belly fat makes inflammatory chemicals that promote estrogen dominance which increases cancer risk in men and women.
7.Wheat is hidden in most boxed foods to stimulate appetite to keep us coming back for more.
8.After the introduction of agricultural products like wheat, human health declined. Early agricultural people showed signs of cavities, short stature, poor facial structure, and lowered bone density when compared to traditional hunter-gather cultures.
9.Seemingly nutritious wheat germ and sprouted wheat has lectins, which are poisons that keep humans from digesting the seed. These lectins cause significant damages and irritation in the small intestine over time.
10.Wheat germ agglutinin found in the wheat kernels unlocks the tight barriers of the small intestine letting undigested food into the bloodstream increasing the risk for autoimmune conditions such as MS, Lupus, Chrohn’s, and Hashimoto’s thyroid disease.
11.Fiber can be abundantly and easily obtained from fruits, vegetables and nuts. Wheat and other grains can cause constipation, the opposite effect most people are seeking from fiber.
12.Wheat consumption can interfere with the production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin in the small intestine creating depression, rage and anxiety in many people.
Our current Health practices of this modern day era is heavily influenced and constantly changing in response to politics, lobbying, and the media. Theses 3 entities have an agenda that follow trends based on monetary interests that benefit themselves. As a result, their recommendations are not based on science. They recommend diets based on monetary profits, whether it benefits your health or not. When you look at all the wonderful results to people concerning health improvement regarding the Paleo diet, you can see why main stream medicine does not support it at this time. How will they profit from having healthy people? After ALL my medical issues disappeared after about 6 months on the Paleo diet, my doctor asked what I was doing that improved my health. I told him about the Paleo Diet. “That’s pseudo science. There is no proof. It must be something else”. Know it all, closed minded people suck, and get people killed.
I think almost every human on the planet suffers from Non celiac gluten sensitivity. Some more than others. Some have full blown celiac disease. No? Well I can’t find ONE health benefit online that says gluten benefits the human body in ANY WAY. Can you? Let me know. Mahalo and Aloha…..:)
It takes roughly forty thousand to one hundred thousand years for human genetic expression to adapt significantly to major change in the body. We have only been consuming grains in abundance since the start of the agricultural revolution dating back ten thousand years. So in thirty thousand years to ninety thousand years, we should be physiologically able to consume grains without any ill effects……until then, please forgo them my friends. They wreak havoc in the gut and much more……
Granted, none of us is in perfect health. Such perfection is likely not possible as the body is constantly adjusting to shifting variables from the environment. However, our cultures paradigm is based on ignoring health until disease develops, and then treating merely the symptoms of a disease after it does develop.(Kharrazian).This is wrong. It’s big business, but wrong…:(
