Is Gluten The Problem?

More and more people appear to be sensitive to gluten. While gluten sensitivity is different than celiac disease, it is still problematic and can cause immense digestive distress, bloating, unexplained rashes, migraines,  fatigue/fogginess, unexplained weight loss (or gain), joint pain…and more.  Believe it or not, eating gluten can trigger more than 300 different symptoms for those who are sensitive.

I have been fortunate enough to hear Dr. Tom O’Brien speak three times.  Believe me when I tell you that he is passionate about gluten.  He has made it part of his personal mission to move the question ‘is gluten causing my health problems’ into the light and into conversations between patients and healthcare professionals.

Now he’s stepping it up and presenting a free seminar from November 11-17.  Each day there will be 3-4 seminars available on-demand for 24 hours.

According to information on his website :

The Gluten Summit will:

– Bring the latest research to the public eye with interpretation from Dr. O’Bryan;

– Call more attention to gluten-related disorders;

– Potentially improve diagnosis and treatment in practice;

– Teach better practices for safely eating outside of the home;

– Encourage more clinicians, practitioners and patients to ask, “Could it be gluten?”

The lineup of speakers is absolutely amazing.  It’s hard to believe that all of these speakers are available for free simply by signing up for this event

As more and more people struggle with issues related to gluten sensitivity it’s important to learn what you need to know and can do to better support your health.  Chances are this issue affects you or someone you know.

Full disclosure – I believe in what Dr. O’Brien is presenting so much, and I’m a huge fan of so many of these speakers (and have heard a number of them speak before — they’re good!)  that I’ve signed up to be an affiliate and am sharing this information.  I’m hoping to reach as many of you as possible so that you don’t miss out on the opportunity to hear what these folks have to say.  You can sign up for free here.
