Dr. Osborne here,
It is no mystery that gluten can cause and contribute to muscular loss, muscular weakness, and muscular inflammation. The consequence of this damage can prevent your immune system from being able to properly protect you. You see, muscle is a reserve tank for healthy immune function. Unfortunately, taking gluten out of your diet is not enough to restore good immune and muscular health. That is why I constantly put so much emphasis on building and maintaining adequate lean muscle.
The problem with muscle deficiency…
It is estimated that 60 of Americans are overweight or obese. There are literally hundreds of diseases and health issues related to being under muscled.
- Heart disease
- Immune dysfunction
- Chronic allergies
- Mobility problems
- Joint pain and arthritis
- Sleep issues and much, much more…
Why Am I Talking About Muscle Instead of Gluten?
Because they are intrinsically related. The more grain we eat, the more insulin we release. The more insulin we release, the more cortisol we make. Both cortisol and insulin promote fat storage. The more fat we store the less muscle mass we have proportionately to our total body weight. When this happens, we have a tendency to start developing all of the diseases listed above.
Inadequate muscle leads to lack of exercise. Lack of exercise leads to less muscle tone – and the cycle continues for 20 years and we find ourselves looking in the mirror wondering how we got so overweight. This, my friends is one of the reasons why our health deteriorates. This is why so many Americans stay sick. Muscle loss weakens the immune system, limits our ability to move, wrecks our quality of life, and in the end kills us 20 years early. One of the biggest hold ups on the road to health recovery is inadequate muscle caused by a lack of exercise and/or doing the wrong type of exercise.
