Gluten: The Real Reason Behind Your Tiredness

Do you ever wonder what's causing your tiredness? The day is only halfway through but it's already hard to keep your eyes open; and you know you've had enough sleep and you have eaten enough but still, you feel tired easily. It could be that the gluten epidemic has hit you. Millions of women are suffering from celiac disease, a disorder of the small intestine that is caused by an adverse reaction to gluten. 

Experts don't usually suspect this could be the culprit behind your tiredness because many women don't suffer from GI problems. So how do you know it's the gluten? On top of the fatigue, you could also suffer from bloating, anemia, brain fog, tummy pains and weight gain. If you have these symptoms, you could ask your doctor to do a blood test for gluten intolerance. 

It will also do you well to avoid gluten -- food and drinks that contain wheat, barley, and rye -- because ingesting even a small amount of this can bring on the symptoms. There are gluten-free foods like brown rice, quinoa, gluten-free rice, amaranth, arrowroot, buckwheat. Add more vegetables to your diet and use a gluten free salad dressing on your salads. It could be daunting in the beginning but once you're used to it, you'll never want to go back to your old diet again. In only a few weeks, you'll notice that your health will start to turn around and you'll lose the excess pound faster. 

While you're at it, check your lipstick. Many lipstick brands contain gluten so applying it and licking your lips can bring on fatigue. Choose a lipstick that's free of this protein to totally cut it out of your system.
