Celiac Disease

Celiac Disease Help

Celiac disease is a disorder, resulting from an immune response to Gluten, it is an autoimmune disease. Gluten is comprised of two Proteins and Carbohydrates. The two proteins are Glutelin (Glutenin) and Gliadin. Gluten is found in wheat, rye, barley, oats and many other foods. The protein Gliadin is responsible for many food derived pathogens and inflammatory responses that cause illness and abnormal conditions. In a normal health body, the proteins in Gluten are destroyed, in the stomach, by the action of strong Hydrochloric acid and the Peptic enzymes. When the Peptic enzymes are not active, in the conversion of proteins, because of weak Hydrochloric acid, the allergenic proteins are dumped into the small bowel. This premature dumping of raw nutrients into the small bowel, results in an autoimmune response. Gliadin in the Gluten, causes the activation of Zonulin, a small protein molecule, produced in the body. Zonulin, when activated, opens up the intracellular spaces, between the cells, of the intestines. The more Zonulin molecules are activated, the larger the spaces between the cells, will be. Increasing the intracellular spaces, will allow larger molecules, of nutrients, to pass through the intestinal lining, into the blood stream. Gliadin and the activation of Zonulin will lead to sever diseases, of the intestinal tract mucosa, in adults and children. Gluten sensitivity appears in 1 of every 300 births. In children the incidence of Celiac disease is calculated at 90 to 100%. In adults the disease is calculated at 75 to 90%. Autoimmune response, from Gliadin and Zonulin, in children causes failure to thrive, defects in tooth enamel, lack of proper growth, and a host of other symptoms. One important indicator, of the onset of Celiac disease in children and adults, is dermatitis herpetiformis (skin rash). The toxic effect of Gliadin and Zonulin, in the intestinal tract, will lead to intestinal lesions and inflammation. This can cause inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, and Cronin's disease, Intestinal Barrier Impairment. Celiac disease is the result of malabsorption, caused by Hypochlorhydria and Achlorhydria. Both conditions, stop the eradication of the protein allergens, in Gluten, by eliminating the Peptic enzymes, in the protein conversion process. The symptoms associated with Hypochlorhydria related celiac disease are, diarrhea and/or constipation, vitamin and mineral deficiency, anemia, abdominal pain, nausea, gas, belching, bloating, osteoporosis, fatigue, flatulence, dermatitis, Intestinal Barrier Impairment, etc. Hypochlorhydria and Achlorhydria are caused by aging, the use of antibiotics, antihistamines, steroids, Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs), excessive use of antacids, alcohol, etc. Both conditions will allow unsterilized and unconverted proteins and nutrients to dump into the small bowel, resulting in an autoimmune response. The symptoms associated with Hypochlorhydria and Achlorhydria are: malabsorption of vitamin B-12, K, D, reduced absorption of calcium, iron, magnesium, and other minerals.

acid reflux or GERD

Many people with reflux assume that they are over producing Hydrochloric acid (HCL). In a large numberg of instances this assumption is not correct. Gastric juices, with or without the presence of HCL, are very bitter to the taste. Unfortunately many doctors also assume that a patient is over producing acid. The over production of HCL is called Hyperchlorhydria. The under production of HCL is called Hypochlorhydria. The symptoms associated with both of these conditions are virtually identical. Both conditions will cause, reflux, belching, bloating, abdominal discomfort,irregular stools, nausea, diarrea or constipation. Unfortunately the misdiagnosis by a doctor will result in the patient being placed on a proton pump inhibitor or other acid reducing medication. People that are not producing enough HCL that are placed on acid reducing medication will become Achlorhydric. Achlorhydria is the complete lack of HCL in digestive process. Nutrients consumed are dumped directly into the small bowel without the benefit of sterilzation or coversion. When this occurs the stage is set for allergies, bacterial infection, and many other disorders, including cronic gastritis, peptic ulcers,stomach cancer, etc. Before taking any type of acid reducing medication, have your doctor give you a pH dignostic test to determine how you digestive tract is processing nutrients. There is a lot of good information on the web. Search for pH test, pH diagnostic test, gastrogram, etc.  (Jan 22, 2013 | post #1)


Allergy Help

If you suffer from allergies, especially food allergies, it is very likely that your digestive system is out of balance. Digestion starts in the mouth. When you chew your food, it is mixed with amylase. Amylase breaks down sugars and starches. When food enters the stomach, it is mixed with Hydrochloric acid (HCL),Pepsin and a host of other enzymes. The HCL turns the food into a thick liquidy mass called Chyme. The Chyme is mixed with Pepsin, causing the proteins consumed to break down into Proteoses and Peptones. These are the building blocks for the amino acids, necessary to sustain life. Many proteins are allergens and will cause allergies if they are not destroyed in the sterilization process and conversion process. The peptic enzymes are most active when the strength of the HCL is at 1.0 to 1.3 pH. As the strength of the HCL decreases the peptic enzymes become less active in converting proteins. At 5.0 pH these enzymes are completely inactive in conversion of proteins. As part of the aging process, but not limited to aging, the stomach's parietal cell wane in their ability to produce strong enough HCL. When this occurs unconverted proteins will dump into the small bowel and cause allergies. This is why many people start having allergies as they get older. Antibiotics, antihistimines, proton pump inhibitors (acid reduicning medications) prevent the stomach's parietal cell from producing sufficeintly strong HCL. Many food allergies are the result of poor sterilization and converion of the foods consumed. If you have allergies it would I would suggest that you get a pH diagnostic to determine what is happening in your digestive tract. You can find a lot of good informaition on the web. Search for pH testing, gastro-gram, pH diagnostict test, etc.  (Jan 22, 2013 | post #1)
