Over the last few years the range – and amount – of “free from” foods has grown massively, with “gluten free” products leading the way. No longer the preserve of those with digestive issues, many people are switching to “gluten free” products believing them to be a healthier option. However, as so often is the case, there’s much more to the gluten issue than first appears. 
So, this week, we’re going to take a closer look at gluten as well as dispelling a few myths and mis understandings along the way. 
It’s a trap that’s all too easy to fall into. And, if we’re honest, we’ve all been caught by it at one time or another, particularly as children, if not as adults. Assuming the world revolves us. That our needs are the most important and everyone / everything else has to fit in round us. Thank you very much! 
While on one hand, this is true – we are each the centre of our own little world – we’re only one of billions of people on this lovely planet of ours. Not forgetting everything else that calls Earth “home”, let alone further afield in the Universe. If that doesn’t give you a new perspective, nothing will… 
Mention Adrenal Fatigue to a conventional practitioner and you’ll probably receive a rather short and sharp answer. That it’s complete rubbish. A myth. How the – often vague – set of symptoms being experienced are probably all in your mind. Oh and there isn’t a specific blood test to diagnose it. Sadly, this isn’t a joke but something we hear all too often from Clients. 
At best, another label may be put on the symptoms. Depression. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Glandular Fever which, ironically, may not show up on a blood test either depending on the virus concerned. However, as these all mean that the deeper underlying cause isn’t identified, any improvement tends to be short term at the best. 
If you’ve ever watched animals out in a field, you’ll probably have seen this phenomenon in action. However lush the grass is inside the field, most of the animals seem irresistibly drawn to the fence line and are soon stretching across it to reach the grass on the other side. Or, just as often, the hedge which is “pruned” to within an inch of its life! 
And, before you think that we’re going to spend the entire post talking about our four legged friends (!), exactly the same phenomenon applies to humans too.
