This may be the source of your extreme tiredness or fatigue: a food allergy.

Glass and milk jug

Extreme fatigue, migraines, irritability or autism are disorders that many people suffer from without knowing the causes: the foods we eat, dairy and cereals.

When we say that dairy and cereals are foods that can affect our health, we are talking about numerous pathologies that can be as common as lactose intolerance. However, there are other lesser known pathologies that can have consequences such as fatigue, autism or extreme fatigue, and which can be caused by are caused by an allergy to casein - present in milk - or gluten - present in wheat and other cereals..

Both casein and gluten are proteins that, under normal circumstances, should be digested by enzymes called peptidases. These enzymes are responsible for the proper digestion of proteins, causing them to be broken down into their basic amino acids. When a person's intestinal function is impaired due to various health problems, these enzymes do not work properly and this means that proteins are not broken down properly and are therefore not digested properly. generate compounds, opioid peptides, which can be very harmful to the body..

At Biosalud Day Hospital we know that a properly functioning intestine is essential for our immune system to function at its best. If this is the case, the opioid peptides we are talking about, gluteomorphin and caseomorphin, will not affect us. If the opposite happens, these compounds are capable of producing an effect similar to that of other drugs such as morphine or heroin.

In cases where a person's immune system is functioning well, his or her intestinal permeability will be adequate, allowing only well-digested food to pass through, preventing the passage of pathogenic substances or improperly digested food into the bloodstream. In people whose immune system is impaired, their intestinal permeability will also be impaired, allowing harmful substances, such as opioid peptides, to pass into the bloodstream and from there to the brain.

The blood-brain barrier will also be altered and these peptides, which have the ability to bind to receptors that are normally destined for neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine or noradrenaline, will alter the function of these neurotransmitters. and thus brain function.

Another site of attachment of these opioid peptides is on the receptors of white blood cells, which will severely weaken the body's defences and so the capacity to become ill will increase.

Therefore, if intestinal permeability is altered, the amount of gluteomorphin or caseomorphin will increase, which will affect our health with serious pathologies at brain level.

How do I know if my Caseomorphin and Gluteomorphin levels are adequate?

At Biosalud Day Hospital, thanks to our extensive experience of more than 30 years searching for the origin of our patients' illness, we have developed the analysis GLUTEN AND CASEIN NEUROPEPTIDES®.. This test allows us to know, in three weeks, if our levels of these peptides are within the optimal values. If this is not the case, we should remove all foods containing these proteins from our diet in order to reduce these levels and thus improve our health.
