Did you know? Keratosis Pilaris (also known as ‘chicken skin’ on the back of your arms) is a result of a fatty acid deficiency and vitamin A deficiency secondary to fat-malabsorption caused by gluten damaging your gut:
Gluten sensitivity is actually an autoimmune disease that creates inflammation throughout the body, which then leads to many other problems and diseases. If you want to get rid of the diseases you have to go to the root cause of the problem, which just might be an intolerance to gluten.
1. Joint pain
2. Malabsorption of vitamins
3. Skin rashes

The New England Journal of Medicine listed 55 diseases that can be caused by eating gluten which include osteoporosis, inflammatory bowel disease, anemia, cancer, irritable bowel disease, arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, and many other autoimmune diseases. Gluten is also linked to mental and neurological diseases such as anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, and others.
Naturally, this doesn’t mean that EVERY case of mental disease or cancer or any of these other problems are caused by gluten but it is very important for all of us to look into it.
So, what’s a person to do?
Go get tested by your doctor and also try removing gluten from your diet and pay close attention to how your body reacts.
