The Definitive Guide to Stopping Leaky Gut & Autoimmune Disease In this free training video, author of No Grain No Pain, Dr. Peter Osborne breaks down how to stop leaky gut and autoimmune disease. If you suffer with these problems, here is what you will learn by watching this training video: The four known causes […]
Multiple Sclerosis Caused by Gluten?
Is There a Link Between Gluten And Multiple Sclerosis (MS)? Because MS has such a debilitating outcome, the question about whether or not natural treatments (including the gluten free diet) are effective comes up on a regular basis. I recently sat down with reporter, Melissa Wilson, from Fox News in Houston, TX to discuss natural […]
The Thyroid Summit – Why You Should Watch This Free Event
Hypothyroidism Hypothyroidism is one of the most common medical conditions diagnosed in the U.S. Thyroid medications account for the 4th most commonly prescribed drug. It costs patients more than 4 billion annually to treat, while the disease effects an estimated 13 million plus people(Data source here). The Thyroid Problem Typical symptoms of low thyroid condition […]
Study Shows How Gluten Stunts Growth in Children
Can gluten stunt growth in children? Can gluten stunt growth in children? It is well established that patients with celiac disease can have wasting and malnutrition. Many of them have a hard time putting or keeping weight on. Traditionally, the thought process behind why this occurs has been focused on chronic diarrhea, and nutritional loss […]
Is Gluten Sensitivity Linked to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)?
A recent research report identified an individual with progressive nerve damage findings mimicking the autoimmune neurological condition known as Lou Gehrig’s disease (AKA – ALS or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). The condition manifests as progressive muscle weakness and loss, involuntary spasms and twitches, and eventually a degeneration of the muscles responsible for aiding in breathing. Many […]
Gluten Intolerance, Autoimmunity, Nutritional Deficiency, and Bone Loss
Should We Generically Recommend Calcium For Bone Loss? High doses of calcium are commonly prescribed for patients with osteoporosis. This recommendation is fundamentally flawed for many reasons. Keep reading to learn why… A research report in the New England Journal of Medicine identifies antibodies against osteoprotegerin (a protein that prevents bone breakdown) in several patients […]
Why are Some Doctors Scared of Gluten Sensitivity?
Gluten Sensitivity – Does it Exist? A recent paper was published based on an interview done with Dr. Stefano Guandalini of the University of Chicago Celiac Research Center. The article stated that gluten sensitivity is not a real issue, and that most people going gluten free are simply following a public trend. The article states […]
Gluten Sensitivity and Rheumatoid Arthritis – Is There A Connection?
Does Celiac Disease Mimic RA? Is there a connection between gluten sensitivity and rheumatoid arthritis? A recent study finds a strong correlation between RA and celiac disease. The findings of the research state that patients with a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis may be misdiagnosed and may actually have a form of polyarthritis caused by gluten. […]
Celiac Disease, Autoimmune Thyroid Disease, Gluten, & Selenium
More clinical research shows that gluten induced nutritional deficiencies can contribute to diseases other than celiac disease… In celiac disease (CD), for its multifactorial nature, the target organs are not limited to the gut, but include thyroid, liver, skin and reproductive and nervous systems. Between the extraintestinal symptoms associated with CD, autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITDs) […]
Lectins, Gluten, Rheumatoid Arthritis, & Molecular Mimicry
I recently had an opportunity to sit down with Fox News and discuss the concept of food inducing autoimmune disease… On that same note, the following review study discusses the correlation between food proteins, lectins, autoimmune inflammation, and the concept of molecular mimicry… Despite the almost universal clinical observation that inflammation of the gut is […]
Dr. Fasano on Leaky Gut Syndrome and Gluten Sensitivity
Multiple research studies have linked gluten to the condition known as intestinal permeability – AKA – Leaky Gut Syndrome. I recently had the privilege of speaking with one of the leading gluten sensitivity researchers in the world, Dr. Alessio Fasano. He is the head of research at the University of Harvard Celiac Research Center, and […]
Celiac Disease Linked To Gall Bladder and Liver Problems
It is not mystery that those with gluten sensitivity have a higher incidence of developing autoimmune diseases. What is often times less discussed is the association of gluten intolerance and celiac disease with autoimmune hepatitis and cholangitis (gall bladder problems). These links are rarely discussed but have been known about and discussed in numerous medical […]
Dr. Fasano Discusses Leaky Gut with Dr. Peter Osborne
Dr. Fasano, leader of the University of Maryland Celiac Research Center, and I sat down for a private one on one interview. We discussed gluten sensitivity vs. celiac disease, leaky gut (intestinal permeability) and leaky brain, research on newly discovered gluten proteins, and mental diseases (schizophrenia, bipolar, depression). These issues have been under great […]
Gluten Sensitivity Spectrum – Not Just a Celiac Issue
The Gluten Autoimmune Spectrum The following picture displays some of the more common manifestations of gluten induced diseases. Problem is, many people, doctors, nutritionists, and the media are mostly in the dark when it comes to the different diseases linked to this food protein. The following is an abstract from a recent paper published in […]
Predictive Antibody Tests for Autoimmune Disease
In this Gluten Free Society sponsored interview series, Dr. Peter Osborne and Dr. Tom O’Bryan discuss predictive antibody testing as a tool to help predict the onset of autoimmune diseases years before they happen. Commonly Diagnosed Autoimmune Diseases – Rheumatoid Arthritis SLE (Lupus) Celiac Disease Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (hypothyroid) Psoriasis Reactive arthritis Grave’s Disease Osteoporosis Diabetes […]
