Surprising Study Suggests ‘Gluten Sensitivity’ Isn’t Caused By Gluten At All

via The Mind Unleashed

After eating foods that contain gluten, do you tend to experience itching, irritability, bloating, or general discomfort? If so, you’ve likely assumed you are allergic to the protein found in a variety of grains. But according to a new study, gluten isn’t the actual culprit. Rather, a sugar chain called fructans is to blame.

Approximately 1 percent of the population has celiac disease — an autoimmune disorder that makes them react badly after consuming gluten proteins in wheat. An additional 12 percent feel bad after eating wheat-based foods, such as bread and pasta. This occurs, despite them not having celiac disorder. Since “gluten” became a buzzword, researchers have been stumped by the phenomena. But now, new research published in the journal Gastroenterology offers clarity on the topic.

Study Proves Sugar is Responsible for Remarkable Rate of Disease

By Dr. Joseph Mercola, Wake Up World

Refined sugar was not consumed on a daily basis until the past 100 years. Before that, it was a treat afforded only by the very rich as sugar cane was a difficult crop to grow. In the past 100 years, rates of obesityheart diseaseType 2 diabetes and numerous other chronic diseases have skyrocketed.

When sugar and tobacco were introduced by Native Americans to Europeans as they began to settle America, the average life span was relatively short.1 This meant health consequences from sugar and tobacco were easily buried in the myriad of other life challenges the early settlers faced.

How The Vibration Of A Flower Can Provide Energy Healing

By Alanna Ketler, Collective Evolution

The following article is sure to give the skeptics something to raise their eyebrows about. It sounds hokey, I know — flower essences for healing?  Honestly, I get it. Just stay with me here, and I’ll explain the mystery of how the vibration of a flower could actually help you.

Flower essences are just that — the essence of a flower, harnessed in a way similar to how homeopathy extracts medicines. Essences are made by putting a flower or an herb into water, which is then left in the sun. Once ready, this water can be stretched out to make many, many vials of an essence, as the water now holds the vibrational imprint of that plant. A small amount of brandy is also added to preserve the concoction, so the essences tend to have a slight taste of alcohol. Are you still with me?

By Brianna Acuesta, True Activist

When thinking of cooking schools, most people automatically think of expensive, gourmet schools that charge upwards of $40,000 per year and teach people how to cook all the classic restaurant meals and then some.

A new study published in Clinical Rheumatology exposes how vaccine manufacturers used phony placebos in clinical trials to conceal a wide range of devastating risks associated with HPV vaccines. Instead of using genuine inert placebos and comparing health impacts over a number of years, as is required for most new drug approvals, Merck and GlaxoSmithKline spiked their placebos with a neurotoxic aluminum adjuvant and cut observation periods to a matter of months.
