I have posted this in another thread, but I think that it should be here also:
I am an avid viewer of The Dr. Oz Show and found yesterday's program on gluten sensitivity very interesting; maybe you saw this, too: http://www.doctoroz.com/episode/gluten- ... t-epidemic
@4:00 Dr. Amy Myers, M.D., speaks on the new warning signs of gluten sensitivity: headaches, migraines, inflammation causing brain fog, depression from nutrient deficiencies (zinc, iron, B vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D), joint pain & arthritis, skin rashes – many more symptoms than just in the gut
@4:30 she says more than 18 million have been diagnosed with gluten sensitivity; suspects that 1 in 2 probably has gluten sensitivity
@5:00 mention of study in New England Journal of Medicine
several years ago that linked gluten sensitivity to 55 diseases
Recent study showed that 56% of people with migraines had gluten sensitivity; gluten-free diet resolved the migraine problem.
The use of the following nutrients (zinc, iron, B vitamins, omega-3's, and vitamin D mentioned in the above video) is also encouraged by Jimmylegs.
My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"
