16/09/2018 - Food Intolerances: do they only affect some people?
A food intolerance or allergy is a rejection of a certain food that can manifest itself in one or several of many ways, though principally in the form of gastrointestinal and dermatological problems.
We perceive these as illnesses, given that the body rejects foods that we consider to be healthy. This happens because the body considers these foods to be harmful. But according to the Natural Hygiene perspective, the human body is wise, and it always generates the most adequate responses towards survival. In that case, why is it that it reacts in such an exaggerated way to regular foods?
A possible answer to this question is that perhaps these foods that people develop intolerances/allergies to are not as healthy as we thought. But why do only some people reject these foods?

25/01/2013 - 10 Reasons to Avoid Gluten and Modern Cereals

When we talk about gluten-free products we think rather in wheat, barley and rye, because the protein that they contain is the origin of celiac disease. But in fact, the definition of gluten is "a substance present in cereal grains, especially wheat, that is responsible for the elastic texture of dough" (Oxford dictionary), that is to say, that all grains contain gluten in more or less quantity.
But is that the gluten in all kind of grains as bad?
Can the gluten represent a problem not only to celiac persons but also others?
What is gluten sensitivity?
