  What is Gluten Intolerance, or Celiac Disease?

What is Gluten Intolerance, or Celiac Disease?

Celiac Disease (CD) is a lifelong digestive disorder affecting children and adults. When people with CD eat foods that contain gluten, it creates an immune-mediated toxic reaction that causes damage to the small intestine and does not allow food to be properly absorbed. Even small amounts of gluten in foods can affect those with CD and cause health problems. Damage can occur to the small bowel even when there are no symptoms present.

Gluten is the common name for the proteins in specific grains that are harmful to persons with celiac disease. These proteins are found in ALL forms of wheat (including durum, semolina, spelt, kamut, einkorn and faro) and related grains rye, barley and triticale and MUST be eliminated.

  Calcium - Don't Take It By Itself

Calcium - Don't Take It By Itself

In addition to Vitamin K2 [see linked article], calcium should not be taken without magnesium in the proper ratio [the magnesium may be a little less than half the amount of calcium, for example]. Also, Vitamin D3 [not ordinary vitamin D] is crucial to include along with calcium and magnesium. These inexpensive supplements work together to help bond calcium to the bones and prevent calcium migration to various soft tissues of the body.

  The Practice of Meditation for Health

Meditation -- Is That Some Kind of "Woo-Woo Zone" Thing?

From an article by Josephine E. Briggs, Director of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM):

Yoga and Tai chi also incorporate meditative components. Meditation practices are often rooted in spiritual practices, but many people practice meditation outside of a religious context. The 2007 National Health Interview Survey revealed that some 20 million U.S. adults use meditation for health purposes.
