More and more people are diagnosed with celiac and non-celiac gluten sensitivity than ever before! You have to ask the question, "WHY?".
Cyndi O'Meara, nutritionist and founder of Changing Habits, went on a global quest to find out the reason why! She could not understand why, after millions of years of eating wheat, we now have this growing epidemic of wheat and gluten intolerance. Fourteen experts from Australia, United States, England, New Zealand and India, including Dr. Perlmutter, Sarah Ballantyne, Dr. Terry Wahls, Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, Pete Evans, and others, weigh in on the subject and provide chilling answers.
This is also about Cyndi O’Meara’s story. Cyndi has been a nutritionist for over 30 years, and has lived a healthy lifestyle her entire life. In fact, she has never taken any medication, not even panadol (acetaminophen). Cyndi went on an elimination diet a few years ago after gaining some excess weight and suffered aches and pains, which she thought was just part of getting older. After eliminating foods out of her diet, she noticed when she re-introduced wheat that her aches and pains came back. She started to question why, as she was brought up on a healthy diet, had eaten healthy foods all her life, and the bread she ate was always from organic sources.
Our wheat has changed dramatically; it doesn’t even resemble what it used to look like. Not only are we seeing more wheat and gluten sensitivity, but there is also a strong connection between gluten and autoimmune diseases.
This documentary answers these pressing questions:
- How is our wheat grown now?
- What is added to the wheat?
- How is our food processed differently now?
- How much wheat we are consuming as a society?
- Why is wheat now added to other foods and cosmetics?
- Why is wheat so addictive?
The story of wheat is the story of food; and people need to become educated, knowledgeable and aware. They need to start making changes to improve the health of their children and future generations. A "must watch" for anyone who is concerned about the foods they consume or may have any kind of health concerns. Wheat can certainly be the issue for many.
