If you or a loved one has balance problems, and an inner ear or sensory disorder has been ruled out, then consider gluten as a potential cause of the symptoms. In today’s broadcast we will be citing new literature finding that a significant percentage of those with balance problems, termed ataxia, have immune activation against gluten or the cerebellum (balance center of the brain).
