Autoimmune Diseases and Cannabis Part 10 – Celiac Disease
In the last installment of this 10-part series, we discuss a prevalent yet widely undiagnosed autoimmune disease by the name of celiac disease. Celiac disease varies from many other autoimmune diseases in the aspect that dietary changes can, in most cases, revert any damage as well as relieve all symptoms. That is because celiac disease is an immune response that results in the body’s immune system attacking your intestines when you consume gluten. Gluten is a protein commonly found in wheat, rye, and barley and is found in many products you would not even be aware of. Celiac disease primarily brings about digestive issues. These issues include but are not limited to nausea, constipation, vomiting, diarrhea, and malnutrition. For many individuals that have been diagnosed with celiac disease, simply eating a diet free from gluten seems to put symptoms at bay as well as help to repair any damage done to the intestines. However, while the symptoms are being experienced, there are many ways that cannabis may help. From helping relieve nausea to reducing inflammation, there may be substantial benefits for celiac patients in cannabinoid therapies. Check out this article to learn more about how cannabinoid therapies may help those living with celiac disease.
