Hidden Sources of Gluten and Dairy!

Do you think you are 100% gluten or dairy free because you are not eating any? Let’s see if you could be accidentally contaminated without knowing it.

Question: What is the largest organ in the body? Answer: the Skin

Everything that goes through our skin and scalp goes directly into our bloodstream! So, shampoo, conditioner and soap, and hair products often contain gluten! It is usually labeled as Triticum(latin name for wheat) or Wheat Germ Oil(Triticum Vulgare). Read the labels of all your skin care products.

I burned my arm and needed to keep it covered, so I put an adhesive bandage over it. It started itching and I thought, Oh, good it’s healing and tried to ignore it! I removed the bandage to medicate it and change it, and found a huge  raised red rash where the glue of the bandage was!!!

  1. Why is farm raised salmon unsafe? Cows, pigs, etc are fed wheat and their meat is gluten free. I am confused on this!

    • Great question, thanks for raising it. I only recommend that people eat grass fed animals. Grass is what they eat naturally. Feeding corn and gluten to animals is just a way to fatten them up quickly,but at the cost of health b/c it causes ecoli bacteria which is fatal.
