Most people who struggle with skin issues like acne or eczema have spent countless amounts of money on prescriptions (that have side effects and cause other problems), creams and ointments, dermatologist appointments, facials, and facial cleansers, all to no avail. We understand how frustrating that can be. That is why we do not just want to cover up the symptoms but rather get to the primary root of what is causing the skin problems in the first place.
So, how is gluten connected to having clear skin? In a nutshell, if there are gluten sensitivities then there is inflammation in the immune system. An inflammatory response starts in the gut and can cause skin issues like acne and other skin eruptions. In other words, what begins in the gut can often show up on your face or other parts of your body. Furthermore, if your immune system is always fighting inflammation, it can lead to autoimmunity. Many folks are not even aware that they have gluten sensitivity, so they continue “feeding” the problem.
Here are some symptoms associated with gluten sensitivities:
• Brain Fog
• Abdominal Pain
• Joint Pain
• Chronic Fatigue
• Skin Issues
• Weight Gain or Loss
• Hormonal Imbalance
The good news is that you can find out if you have a gluten sensitivity with our Comprehensive Gluten Allergy Test Kit. And if you want to also test for the other grains and dairy components there is a test for that too called the Cross Reactivity Test.
Even if you quit eating wheat flour, gluten is also in other grains and often cross- contaminated in foods that are naturally gluten-free such as corn and rice. Gluten is often adding to all kinds of stuff from foods (Example: soy sauce and imitation meats) to cosmetics, shampoos, toothpaste, medications, and supplements. When you are gluten sensitive, you start to read all sorts of labels because gluten hides practically everywhere!
Too many people are suffering needlessly, and all they need to do is identify their gluten intolerance and then adjust their diet to feel better quickly. Don’t be one of them, when you can easily test yourself with our Comprehensive Gluten Allergy Test Kit.
