Centennial, CO (PRWEB) December 18, 2008 — Over 90 million Americans have some form of gluten sensitivity and one in every four are intolerant to dairy products – yet most are undiagnosed. Many who suffer with chronic illness may simply be reacting negatively to the foods they are eating. Gluten, a protein found in barley, wheat, rye, oats and spelt can only be traced back 10,000 years and humanity has been on earth about 1 million years. Humans didn't evolve eating gluten. Casein is a protein found in dairy products. People who think they are lactose intolerant may actually be reacting to the protein rather than the sugar (lactose) in dairy products. Protein reactions can be severe and can cause long-term health problems.
These new video segments on You Tube offer help for people who need to learn more about this way of eating. "It isn't too hard to do, once you learn a few things", says Jean Duane, "and since I live this lifestyle, I am here to help." Jean makes it easy by showing how to mix different flours, milk and egg substitutes that work well in recipes to make baked items that taste as good as their wheat and dairy counterparts. She shines a new light on this lifestyle – focusing on abundance and delicious alternative foods.
