Leaky Gut, is Permeable- celiac

The term leaky gut refers to a part of the intestinal tract, stomach, small intestines, that becomes permeable due to exposure to a virus, bacteria, parasite, stressor, chemical, environmental toxin. Once permeable the immune system becomes involved in trying to rid the body of the stressor by producing antibodies and cells that fight their battle. The immune system may  make antibodies that cant tell the difference between healthy tissue and the offending agent ( as in the case of Celiac autoimmune disease to gliadin, a protein in wheat, rye, barley ).

What people might not be aware of is cross reactivity.

Cross reactivity means that eating one food can cause a response similar to eating another

cows milk is known to cross react to gluten in grains

Whey protein is known to cross react to rice

Chocolate milk is known to cross react to corn

casomorphin in milk is known to cross react to oats

alpha and B casein in milk is known to cross react with yeast

This is why when a person has a leaky gut, initially it is best to stay away from milk and wheat products, since a permeable intestines may cause milk and wheat proteins to enter the blood and cause inflammation from their proteins.

Its best to wait until the initial insult and the leaky gut has been resolved.

Obamacare and the Health Profession

Whether you are for Obama Care or against it- or have no feelings what so ever- See what health professionals below think:

The Allergists were in favor of scratching the plan, but the dematologists advised not to make any rash moves

THe Gastroenterologists had a GUT feeling about the plan , but the neurologists thought the administration had a lot of NERVE to implement it.

Obstetricians felt that the congress was laboring under many misconceptions about healthcare while the opthalmologists considered the plan shortsighted

Patholgists yelled, “OVER OUR DEAD BODY!” while Pediatricians said to them, ” Oh GROW UP,”

The Psychiatrists and psychologists felt the whole plan was madness, while the radiologists could see right thru it

Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing, while the internists claimed the new plan would indeed be a bitter pill to swallow

The Plastic surgeons opinioned that this healthcare plan would put a whole new face on the matter

The Podiatrists thought Obamacare was a step forward while the urologists were pissed off at the whole plan.

Anesthesiologists were aghast at the plan while the Cardiologist didn’t have the heart to say no to it.

In the end it, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the assholes in Washington to get to the bottom of all this.

I think its a BUM deal and needs more careful evaluation,
are congressman also paying $3000 a year deductible as many of US will be paying?

Ulcers not just stress induced, bacteria can also cause Ulcers

Many people think that spicy foods cause peptic ulcers, but the truth is that bacteria called Helicobacter pylori (or H. pylori) is the main culprit.

Many believe that adults in high-stress jobs are theonly ones affected, people of any age – even children – can develop ulcers.

About Peptic Ulcers

An ulcer is a sore, which means it’s an open, painful wound.

Peptic ulcers are ulcers that form in the stomach or

the upper part of the small intestine, called the duodenum.

An ulcer in the stomach is a gastric ulcer and an ulcer in the duodenum

is called a duodenal ulcer.

Both a gastric ulcer and a duodenal ulcer result when H. pylori

or a drug such as advil or motrin weakens the  coating of the

stomach and duodenum, allowing acid to get through to the sensitive lining beneath.

Both the acid and the bacteria can irritate the lining and cause an ulcer to form.

H. pylori infection is usually contracted in childhood,

perhaps throughfood, water, or close contact with an infected individual.

Infections are more common in adults older than age 60 and in developing countries.

Most people with H. pylori don’t display any symptoms until they’re older.

In fact, they may go through life unaware that they’re infected.

Although H. pylori infection usually doesn’t cause problems in childhood,

if left untreated it can cause gastritis

(the irritation and inflammation of the lining of the stomach),

peptic ulcer disease, and even stomach cancer later in life.

In the past, having peptic ulcers meant living with a chronic condition

for several years or even a lifetime.

But today, a better understanding of the cause of peptic ulcers

and how to treat them means that most people can be cured.
