Did you know that sex health is affected by gluten?  Ditch gluten and help yourself to a better sex life! Our goal today is to share some easy gluten free recipes and tips to help you to enjoy a more fulfilling sex life.   And let’s be honest, that is on a lot of people’s wish list!

What Will You Make for Thanksgiving?

We’ve got you covered with a couple of great vegan, gluten free recipes – the first is a pumkin pie from the Minimalist Baker!  If you want another option, try out the flourless gluten free fudge brownies from Kate Furgeson!   This however just might be our favorite – Mushroom and Giblet Gravy with Purple Power Mash Potatoes!

When it comes to gluetn free sensivitvies and intolerances, the best way to avoid them is sticking with a whole foods palnt-based diet because gluten isn’t found in most raw food dorms, besides certain grains.  Grains like wheat, barley and rye.  People with celiac disease, gluten intolerance, wheat-gluten allergies and other autoimmune disease should avoid eating gluten.

Yet, an estimated 99% of people who have a problem with eating gluten don’t even know it.  They ascribe their ill health or symptoms ot something else, not a gluten sensitivity, which is 100% curable.”

Gluten-Free Diet May Help Your Sex Life

Studies indicate that your sex drive improves and you have sex more often if you’re diagnosed with celiac and follow the gluten-free diet.

Of course, celiac disease can interfere with your sex life in other ways, some of which can kill the spontaneity (and perhaps your libido, too). For example, you can’t kiss someone wearing gluten-containing lipstick without risking getting sick if you’re celiac, and it’s wise (imperative, in fact) to ask a gluten-eating (or beer-drinking), partner, to brush his or her teeth before kissing you.

However, given the choice between feeling constantly fatigued and having little or no sex drive, and having to do a little advance planning in order to have a fun romantic interlude, our guess is most celiacs would choose the planning and the interlude.

Effects on Frequency and Satisfaction

One study on celiac disease and sexuality looked at sexual behavior in just-diagnosed celiac disease patients and then revisited them a year later to see what, if anything, had changed. The researchers also compared the celiacs with non-celiac control subjects.

Patients just diagnosed with celiac who hadn’t yet adopted the gluten-free diet had a significantly lower frequency of intercourse when compared with controls. They also reported far less satisfied with their sex lives, the study reported.

However, like so many other celiac disease symptoms and complications, these sexual problems reversed once the individuals began following the gluten-free diet; one year after diagnosis, the study subjects reported a significantly higher frequency of sexual activity, plus significantly enhanced satisfaction with sex.
