Gluten Intolerance or Celiac Disease is an autoimmune disorder.
The best way to tell if you have gluten intolerance or celiac disease is to have your doctor test you for celiac disease (note: You need to keep eating your gluten filled diet, in order for the doctor to determine weather or not you have celiac disease). Even if your celiac test shows up normal, you could still could have gluten intolerance. And I would suggest having a food sensitivity test done by a nature path.
The cure: stay away from gluten and any other foods that you are sensitive to.
Many people have reported feeling so much better after staying off gluten.
And many people have lost weight eating a gluten free diet.
But there have been people who have gained weight,
you just have to be careful not to eat too much of a good thing.
So what are the benefits from being on a gluten free diet?
Well for one, you feel so much better, you have more energy and your stomach doesn't hurt anymore.
You don't feel swollen. You don't feel sluggish anymore, You actually feel like you can function again.
And best of all you have improved digestion, which means you are absorbing the nutrients in your food again. And your health improves.
