Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity: Fact or Fad?
It's the holidays, which means between office parties and family gatherings, the feast table is replete with treats -- cookies, pies, rolls, breads, and biscuits... not to mention flour-thickened sauces on all manner of rich dishes. In other words: it's a glutinous glut of goodies.
Are you among the growing population who considers themselves sensitive to gluten? Perhaps after consuming pasta or bread you have noticed gastrointestinal upset, mental fog or even mood swings. And perhaps you've ventured into the "gluten-free" aisle at the market.
In his latest pair of blogs, Michael Tierra researches the gluten-free trend, and reaches a conclusion that might be surprising to some: that non-celiac gluten sensitivity is either psychological or just a manifestation of gut dysbiosis, poor food combining, or indigestible sugars common to the Western diet... NOT gluten.
If you're willing to finally indulge that craving for a piece of black forest cake in the name of "science," try Michael's suggested protocol. Don't forget to tell us about your experiences in the comments section of the blog!
Take, for example, her remarkable discovery of "noni fruit leather," which can be eaten as a superfood or used in the most unique ways -- like as a bandage for a wound! In her blog, Some of My Favorite Herbs and Therapies, she describes using the leather to heal a cut on her foot in record time.
Also featured in her list are suction cups to help relieve headaches, a tool that dispels pain and itching instantly, and various herbs and formulas especially useful during winter. Don't miss it!

1. Eucalyptus may be experienced as a cooling substance, but its true herbal energetic is WARMING.
2. This energetic quality is what allows eucalyptus to break up cold, congealed phlegm as found in stuffy noses, blocked sinuses and chronic phlegmy coughs.
3. Eucalyptus is popularly administered as an external rub or as a steam inhalation. In both of these methods, the essential oil is used.
4. Because this antibacterial essential oil is eucalyptus' key ingredient, internal use is as a tea, made from the leaves infused in hot water while covered. The essential oil itself may be consumed as well in honey, water or as a lozenge, but drop-doses are used with caution here.
5. Eucalyptus is also applied externally or taken internally to relievejoint and muscle stiffness and pain.
