Grains - A summary of some problems
Ron Ehrlich, BDS
Thu, 24 Oct 2013 09:10 CDT
Whole grains are very low in Vitamin C and beta carotene. Vitamin B6 is poorly absorbed
Grains contain low levels of essential fats, having too much Omega 6 and too little Omega 3 fatty acids, and so are pro-inflammatory.
Phytate levels in grain reduces the absorption of many minerals, including zinc, iron
Exorphins -It is known that these foods contain exorphins, which are molecules that have opioid (morphine-like) activity. The authors speculate that early humans started to eat these foods because of these exorphins, that is, by eating these foods, it made them feel good. They write "The fact that overall health declined when they [i.e. grains] were incorporated into the diet suggests that their rapid, almost total replacement of other foods was due more to chemical reward than to nutritional reasons." They go on to say "Civilisation arose because reliable, on-demand availability of dietary opioids to individuals changed their behaviour, reducing aggression, and allowed them to become tolerant of sedentary life in crowded groups, to perform regular work and to be more easily subjugated by rulers." (Journal of the Australasian College of Nutrition and Environmental Medicine G. Wadley and A Martin, Dept of Zoology, University of Melbourne, Vol 19 No 1 April 2000)

Zonulin - is protein that participates in tight junctions between cells of the wall of the digestive tract leading to "leaky gut". Increased levels of zonulin are a contributing factor to the development of celiac disease and other autoimmune disorders such as insulin dependent diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis. (The Lancet, Vol 355 Issue 9214,pp1518 - 1519, 29 April 2000 "Zonulin, a newly discovered modulator of intestinal permeability, and its expression in coeliac disease." Fasano et al )
Gluten - is a natural protein found in certain grains such as wheat (including spelt), rye, barley and oats. Gluten makes up 80 percent of all proteins found in wheat, and is responsible for giving dough its elastic quality. There are 12 fractions of gliadin in gluten, which are polypeptides of varying length. Alpha-gliadin is the longest and the only one tested for sensitivity to determine whether people are actually sensitive to gluten. So if you are not sensitive to that one fraction or protein and the villi in your gut are not completely denuded, you may be diagnosed as not having a problem with gluten. And yet grains and gluten may be a problem.

Ben op een gegeven moment overgetapt van brood naar: Kamut, gierst, zwarte quinoa en boetweit.
Hier doen mijn darmen het wel goed op.
Laat het een nachtje staan in een heel klein beetje water op een schoteltje, zodat ze gaan kiemen en de vlgd. dag door de yoghurt of kwark.

Dat kan ik wel verdragen.
Maar van brood raken mijn darmen totaal van streek.
Ook dat zuurdesem brood ging niet goed bij mij.

Tegenwoordig gebruik ik ook geen mais producten meer.
en geen soja
en geen tarwe

Nu is kamut wel een graansoort, maar dan niet veredeld.
Gierst is geloof ik een grensgeval

Bedankt voor je stuk Bamboe!

Ik eet al een tijdje geen brood meer. In plaats daarvan eet ik een groot bord havermoutpap.
In het stuk lees ik dat havermout wel gluten bevat, maar ondanks dat heb ik van havermout geen darmklachten en van brood en volkoren ontbijtgranen wel.

Gr. Elly.

The grain that damages the human brain
Sayer Ji

With increasing recognition among medical professionals and the lay public alike that the health of gut and brain are intimately connected (i.e. the 'gut-brain' axis), the concept that gluten-containing grains can damage the human brain is beginning to be taken more seriously.

Books like Dr. William Davis' New York Times best-selling Wheat Belly made great progress in opening up popular consciousness to the subject of gluten's addictive properties, my own e-book The Dark Side of Wheat explored the role that wheat and grains in general played as an addictive agent, and Dr. David Perlmutter's new book Grain Brain places significant emphasis on this connection as well.

After all, if wheat is a common cause of intestinal damage ("enteropathy") both in those with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity, it is no wonder that gluten-associated damage to the gut - sometimes called the "enteric brain," or "second brain," - could have adverse effects to the central nervous system as well.

Indeed, our research project at GreenMedInfo.com has identified in biomedical literature directly from the National Library of Medicine over 200 adverse health effects linked to gluten-containing grains, with neurotoxicity top on the list of 21 distinct modes of toxicity associated with this grain's effects.[i] These neurotoxic properties extend from neuropathy and ataxia, to distinct psychiatric conditions such as acute states of mania, and schizophrenia.

A recent study published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry titled, "Hyperexcitable brain and refractory coeliac disease: a new syndrome," has identified a "new syndrome" within the broader array of so-called "gluten related disorders (GRD)" which the authors are calling "Hyperexcitable brain and refractory celiac disease."

According to the study, "Whilst coeliac disease (gluten sensitive enteropathy) remains one of the best characterised GRD, neurological dysfunction is one of the commonest extraintestinal manifestations with a range of presentations such as cerebellar ataxia, neuropathy, sensory ganglionopathy and encephalopathy (headaches and white matter abnormalities)."

They point out that neurological manifestations of gluten-induced toxicity can occur with or without evidence of intestinal damage (enteropathy). While wheat-induced intestinal damage is far more common than most suppose (read: Research Proves Wheat Can Cause Harm to Everyone's Intestines), the problem with gluten stretches far beyond the intestinal wall to so-called "out-of-intestine" adverse health effects. And given the fact that many of the peptide sequences within the vast array of proteins that we colloquially refer to as 'gluten' -- as if it were a singular entity versus the 23,000 plus proteins it is actually comprised of -- are pharmacologically psychoactive, it is no wonder that adverse neurological/cognitive consequences follow its ingestion.

The new study describes a case study involving 7 patients (5 male, 2 female) who were identified from a cohort of 540 patients with neurological manifestations of "Gluten related disorders (GRD)." These patients showed signs of "myoclonic tremor," which is an involuntary muscle twitching, which initially occurred in their face, tongue, one arm or one leg, "but then spread to affect other parts of the body." So severe was the tremor that 5 of the patients suffered from epileptic seizures, progressing from "Jacksonian seizures," a type of epilepsy that are initiated with abnormal electrical activity within the primary motor cortex, and may involve a wide range of behaviors from drooling, smacking of the lips, apparently purposeful movements such as turning of the head, etc. Furthermore, all the patients were described as having "limb ataxia and more prominent gait ataxia" - ataxia being a lack of voluntary coordination of muscle movements.

Electrophysiology 'brain tests' showed evidence of cortical myoclonus, which is defined as 'as involuntary brief muscle jerks originating from an abnormal discharge of the cerebral cortex.' Further clinical, imaging and/or pathological evaluation revealed some evidence of cerebellar involvement, but this was a secondary feature, distinguishing this new condition from gluten ataxia, where cerebellar ataxia is the most disabling feature.

All patients were made to adhere to a strict gluten-free diet, but even after eliminating gluten-related antibodies, there was still evidence of intestinal damage in keeping with so-called 'refractory' or treatment resistant celiac disease. The researchers believe that this syndrome, while rare, is the commonest neurological manifestation of refractory celiac disease. They concluded:

"The clinical manifestations [of the newly named disorder] extend from focal reflex jerks to epilepsia partialis continua, covering the whole clinical spectrum of cortical myoclonus. This entity is possibly under-diagnosed and difficult to treat."

This study, of course, only addresses the small exposed tip of the massive Gluten-Related Disorder 'Iceberg'. But it does add renewed focus to the topic of wheat and gluten's brain-damaging and/or mind-altering properties. Here are some additional studies linking wheat to brain issues:

There is a high prevlance of gluten sensitivity in Japanese patients with adult-onset cerebellar ataxia. Intern Med. 2006;45(3):135-40. Epub 2006 Mar 1.

So, what's the best way to find out if this research is accurate and relevant for you? My opinion is that the proof is in the gluten-free pudding. Try it out. Eliminate gluten-containing foods for a while, and see how you feel. Observe your memory, your cognition, etc. If it works, it works. If it doesn't, no harm done.

To learn more, watch Dr. Tom O' Bryan's short video on research indicating wheat ingestion can cut off blood flow to the brain.

Where blood sugar is high, the brain (and other bodily structures) is constantly bathed in a glycating sugar bath. Recent studies show that having diabetes doubles one's risk of contracting Alzheimer's disease, he points out. The growing understanding of the connection between the two diseases has prompted some researchers to suggest that Alzheimer's be re-labeled "Type-3 Diabetes."

"The origin of brain disease is primarily dietary," he concludes, and not hereditary, as is most commonly assumed. Gluten, by triggering the immune system, causes inflammation in the brain, which encourages the brain's glycation by sugar circulating in the blood.

Perlmutter also presents evidence that some gluten breakdown products are in an endorphin-like class of molecules called exorphins, which are addictive.

We've known since the late 1970s that gluten breaks down in the stomach to become a mix of polypeptides that can cross the blood-brain barrier. Once they gain entry, they can then bind to the brain's morphine receptor to produce a sensorial high. This is the same receptor to which opiate drugs bind, creating their pleasurable, albeit addicting, effect.

This addictive quality of gluten, he writes, can also lead to withdrawal symptoms among those who remove gluten from their diets.

Elly, ik ben ook glutenintolerant. Extreem zelfs. Is er een link met Lyme???
Eigenlijk is havermout glutenvrij, maar bij het dorsen gebruiken de boeren dezelfde dorsers als voor de tarwe. In zo'n dorser blijft een aantal 100den kilo achter. In havermout zit om die reden dus ook wat tarwe. Voor mij te veel, ik verdraag dus geen "normale" havermout. Havermout van Provena bijvoorbeeld, komt nooit in aanraking met tarwe, is gegarandeerd glutenvrij en dat verdraag ik zonder enkel probleem.
