For those who have difficulty tolerating gluten, the problem is often undigested gluten, not the gluten itself. The gluten protein is very difficult to digest and requires a particularly strong acid in the stomach to process. If our digestion is otherwise compromised, trying to digest gluten can cause damage to our gut, specifically the lining of our digestive tract.
Instead of eliminating gluten entirely, we can work to heal the gut, thus enabling our body to better digest the gluten. Cleansing and healing the gut is often the secret to being able to enjoy gluten again!
The Ayurvedic Cleanse is an excellent way to promote this gut healing.
Even with a healthy gut and digestive tract, gluten is still more difficult to digest; therefore, like most foods, it should be eaten in moderation. For instance, winter can be a great time of year to eat gluten, as this is when our digestive fire is strongest.
