Gluten Sensitivity is a Common Problem

At least 20% of the population appears to be gluten sensitive.  Of those only one-fifth are proven Celiac disease by biopsy of the lining of the small intestine.  IGG and IGA antibodies are produced in other affected patients, who suffer from food allergies.  Those with a yeast imbalance in the digestive tract (dysbiosis) also usually do not tolerate gluten.  Fortunately, most patients with gluten sensitivity can be desensitized with either sensitivity reduction technique (tapping on acupuncture points) or low dose allergen treatment.
