In addition, he is the author of the international best-selling book, No Grain No Pain, published by Touchstone (Simon & Schuster), which was also printed in 5 languages and turned into a PBS special that aired nationwide.
Because of his work with gluten, Dr. Osborne was invited to speak at the Harvard Faculty Club with functional medicine advocate, New York Times best-selling author and TV icon, Suzanne Somers.

Many Doctors don’t Understand The Full Spectrum of Gluten Sensitivity
Gluten Sensitivity, sometimes referred to as non celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) is not being thoroughly taught in medical schools. That is because it is a relatively new subject that is still being studied worldwide, and the science is evolving extremely fast. Therefore, much of the recent research in this field is unknown by many medical practitioners, leaving many patients in the dark about the connections between gluten and disease.
Early in his career, Dr. Osborne was fortunate enough to find out about gluten sensitivity, while helping a young girl who was given a terminal diagnosis. Ginger was 9 years old when her mother sought out Dr. Osborne’s professional help. She had been diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and was told that she only had 6 months to live. It was determined that her disease was actually triggered by gluten, and after going gluten free, Ginger made a full recovery from her illness. Ginger’s health transformation is one of the reasons that Dr. Osborne founded Gluten Free Society. Millions of people are suffering with gluten induced autoimmune illnesses, and have no idea that a simple diet change could potentially save their lives.
