Is gluten destroying your health?

On Thursday, May 3rd, 2012, I will be discussing “Put That Bread Down: How Gluten May be Destroying Your Health & What To Do About It” with Dr. Thomas O’Bryan.

Dr. Thomas O’Bryan is an internationally recognized speaker and workshop leader specializing in Gluten Sensitivity and Celiac Disease. He is a ‘Sherlock Holmes’ for chronic disease and metabolic disorders. He is a clinician par excellence in treating chronic disease and metabolic disorders from a Functional Medicine Perspective. He holds teaching Faculty positions with the Institute for Functional Medicine and the National University of Life Sciences. Dr. O’Bryan is always one of the most respected, highly-appreciated speakers. Dr. O’Bryan’s passion is in teaching the many manifestations of Gluten Sensitivity and Celiac Disease as they occur inside and outside of the intestines.

In sensitive individuals, Gluten Sensitivity can trigger Auto-Immune Disorders, Epilepsy, Thyroid Disease, Diabetes, Migraines, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and more. Perhaps one of the more surprising messages is the impact of Gluten Sensitivity on the brain. The “dimmer switch”, that occurs in the brain (especially in children), is one that parents and care givers would never suspect.
