Gluten and Acne

Many health problems are caused by inflammation in the body and it is known that gluten is the culprit that causes this inflammation. Some of the results of gluten intolerance is edema, joint or muscle pain, obesity, arthritis, menstrual and fertility issues and skin issues just to name a few and all results of chronic inflammation.

Research has determined grains are the highest inflammation elements in a person’s diet. Grains such as rye, barley, and wheat are the three top offenders. Those who are gluten sensitive develop an adverse reaction to their immune system and this interferes with the body’s ability to absorb nutrients and this leads to other serious diseases.

Acne is one of the most common skin disorders caused by an inflammation. It is usually thought of as a teenage problem, but can affect older individuals, both male and female and begins (usually) during the puberty stage. Acne is the result of blockages in the skin that naturally collect bacteria resulting in an inflammation.

Acne appears as red spots, infected pustules, papules, or nodules. This skin disorder is so common that most individuals don’t even know that gluten sensitivity, or allergy, can be counted among the causes of this skin disorder as well as numerous other diseases of the body and most individuals are not aware that they are sensitive to, or allergic to gluten.

There are even fewer that are aware of the connection of gluten to acne and other skin issues. Gluten is also in many foods and therefore you are easily exposed, in many different ways, to it on a daily bases. Those who suffer from acne are only too well aware of how difficult acne is to deal with and that no matter what they do they cannot cure their acne.

But there is good news and help for you, but along with the good there is also bad news. The first step is to become gluten free (the bad news). Yes, this will take some work on your part. You need to become as gluten free as possible and as soon as possible and this means sacrifices. No cake, buns, pretzels, pasta, cookies, pizza, and any grain food made from wheat, rye, and barley.

It may seem like an insurmountable challenge, but lets us show you how it can be done. And within a very short period of time (days) you notice a difference in how you feel and will soon see an improvement in your skin.

Eliminating any gluten from your diet means you need to read labels carefully. Eliminate breads, pizzas, pasta (you get the idea) from your diet. This can be accomplished with a change in your diet and eating habits. Take a powerful anti-inflammatory along with a high quality fish supplement for acne.
