The Hidden Cause of IBS?

Have you ever noticed that modern health epidemics seem to come in waves?

For example, how many kids do you know with peanut allergies? It just popped out of nowhere a couple of decades ago!

Think back to when you were a kid — do you remember having at least one kid in every class with a peanut allergy when you were going to school? Even one in your whole school?

And today there’s another problem… gluten! Everybody seems to have a gluten sensitivity and no one knows why.

Then, years after the epidemic has run its course, the research starts to come out of the woodwork.

Take the peanut allergy epidemic for example. First it was a mystery… now people are discovering that peanut oil has been used as a vaccine adjuvant (adjuvant “65-4”) since the 1970s.

Could the unnatural injection of peanut oil directly into the bloodstream (bypassing the body’s natural filters) have been a contributing cause of today’s peanut allergy problem?

Likewise, there’s now an equally intriguing connection between the modern epidemics of gluten-sensitivity and irritable bowel syndrome.

Brand new research is making the case that gluten-containing foods may be a leading reason for IBS symptoms — and that a gluten-free diet may be a significant step toward alleviating those symptoms.

Researchers observed 22 people with IBS-D (diarrhea predominant IBS) on a gluten-containing diet and 23 people with IBS-D on a gluten-free diet.

The result? People on the gluten-free diet had fewer bowel movements.

This finding was such a revelation that the study authors proclaimed that a gluten-free diet could be a “reversible mechanism for [IBS].”

Talk about groundbreaking!

This research flies in the face of conventional wisdom!

As you may know, Ann suffered with IBS for more than 10 years and — before she discovered The Hallelujah Diet — ate white bread for relief simply because it didn’t have any fiber to irritate her colon. Doctors often advise refined grains for the same reason… yet these refined grains also contain gluten!

Ironically, doing the opposite seems to be the logical answer. As the research cited above indicates, alleviating symptoms by avoiding gluten may be a very real possibility for some people with IBS.

Interestingly, gluten intolerance may not be exactly what it appears, either. Some people who think they are gluten sensitive may actually be reacting to the fructans in gluten-containing grains because they are actually fructose intolerant.

Like gluten intolerance, could the overabundance of fructose in our society be causing people’s immune systems to backfire, manifesting as fructose intolerance?

The good news is, for many people, IBS (no matter what’s causing it) can be overcome — in fact, you can click here to watch a video of Ann explaining how she did it.

  1. My son has had IBS and other digestive issues for many years. We took the medical route and had many tests for allergies etc. For us it was a waste of money. We also went to a natural Dr. who gave him supplements that helped. Even so he still was having problems. With trial and error we kept eliminating foods until his diet was very basic. He recently had an endoscopy because of stomach acid and pain that showed gastritis. At that point we also noticed that more and more of his friends were gluten intolerant so we decided to take him off grain even though he was tested and was non reactive. Well it helped and his gastritis is no longer a problem. Needless to say I agree with this article.
    Thank you Paul and Ann for all your research and help with deciphering healthy food and lifestyle choices.
    PS…. I am working on getting my son on the hacre diet. Meat is one of the foods he has the least trouble digesting. It’s fiber he seems to have problems with but I have him juicing so that’s a start. 🙂

    This article ignores the use of genetically-modified crops (such as peanuts, soybeans, and corn) throughout our food system here in the US. Countries that don’t allow GMO crops have very little problem with food allergies. In other countries that have allowed GMO crops to be used for food (like the UK), food allergies have greatly increased, and rapidly: The UK is one of the few countries that conducts a yearly evaluation of
    food allergies. In March 1999, researchers at the York Laboratory were
    alarmed to discover that reactions to soy had skyrocketed by 50% over
    the previous year. Genetically modified soy had recently entered the UK
    from US imports and the soy used in the study was largely GM. John
    Graham, spokesman for the York laboratory, said, “We believe this raises
    serious new questions about the safety of GM foods.” – Louis J. Pribyl, “Biotechnology Draft Document, 2/27/92,” March 6, 1992

    GMO crops have been link recently to an epidemic of fatal intestinal and bowel disorders on two studies – one study on pigs in Australia and one on bees in Germany. Also, a field of GMO wheat was discovered to be growing in Oregon, and lo and behold, about 30,000 bees were found dead not long afterward. Contact with GMO pollen weaken the bees’ intestines and allows parasites to kill them easily.
