The Gluten Free Diet
What is the gluten free diet?
Gluten is one type of protein found in rye, wheat and barley. There is a disease called Celiac disease.
People suffering from this disease get allergic type of reactions if they consume gluten.
What does this do exactly in your body?
If you have celiac disease and consume gluten a reaction takes place in your intestines that inhibits you to absorb the nutrients your body needs...
If this is left untreated your body can get deficiencies and all the related problems (anemia, iron deficiency, osteoporosis, sudden weight loss, etc.)
As pointed out earlier gluten is found in wheat, rye and barley and all its derivates. That includes bread, cereals, pastas, pizza, cakes, pies, (you name it). Gluten is also contained in processed foods and beverages.
When following a gluten free diet it is a must to read labels carefully.
If you discover that you or one of your families has celiac disease, don’t panic. Celiac disease is a treatable disorder and the damage done in the intestine is reversible.
First of all and most important is to seek nutritional advice. It is best to consult with a licensed health care practitioner and a good nutritionist.
Foods that contain gluten can be substituted with foods that don’t contain gluten.
Gluten free diet foods are:
* Flours made from beans and seeds
* Etc, etc... These are some examples.
If you come from the doctors office and are diagnosed with celiac disease, I suggest don’t run to the supermarket and start searching for gluten free diet products.
Go home and take a look what you already have in storage. And after you are certain what you need you can go to the supermarket.
A summary table of gluten free diet products:

To me it looks like the gluten free diet is a diet you can live with. Aloe Vera juice in most cases helps to enhance the intestinal function.
