    Very interesting video with Dr. Parker’s discussion about the effects of gluten on the brains well as the body. I have suffered from major stomach issues over the years until it reached the point where doubling meds for “IBS” no longer worked and I tried the gluten free diet…which after only 3 days…is already making me feel better!!! No stomach cramps….no bathroom runs…no bloating…it is incredible!! I have also suffered from anxiety much of my life as well as carpul tunnel syndrome in my adult years…it’s incredible that gluten causes so much damage to the body…
    THANK YOU so much for sharing this information!

    • Charlene,
      Thanks for sharing your story! You are very welcome. Be sure to check out the rest of the interview. It is broken down into parts, but the whole interview is about 80 minutes.

    I have been enjoying these tutorials. Coming from a large family with tons of mental illness/multiple immune disorders I believe to be caused by an inabilty to tolerate grains, I am grateful for the information.
    I’ve been studying about gluten sensitivity (I have celiac disease) and am intrigued by “intestines are the second brain” and “go with your gut”
    Having a “schitzophrenic” brother I feel dissapointed and discouraged that Dr. Parker still believes in drugs to treat mental illness.

  4. Many thanks Peter for sending this out and breaking it down into some reasonable sound bites.

    The entire issue of immune dysfunction and refractory mental health challenges will continue to become more relevant as the days go by. Those informed in these issues will surely be covering more useful bases than those who don’t!

    Many thanks again for the opportunity to work together on this project-
    Chuck

  5. Hey Doc,
    Thanks for the fantastic interview. I will send you a link with the entire series. I am working on something very big, and would like to have you as a speaker if you are open to it.
    All the best

  6. […] Gluten is a known neurotoxin.  It comes as no surprise that yet another research study links this toxic peptide to nerve damage.   It has been speculated that gluten effects the nervous system in many different ways.  If you missed this critical interview on gluten and brain damage with psychiatrist, Dr. Chales Parker, go watch it now… […]

    I have a friend who has recently been diagnosed with Idiopathic Trigeminal Neuralgia. At first they thought it might have been MS, and I remember her telling me she didn’t have any gag reflex, but, after tests came back as negative for MS, they diagnosed ITN. I know she had one episode of such severe pain, that she said it was the most painful thing she had ever experienced. The drugs they prescribe to deal with the pain, or any potential pain, apparently leave her feeling like a zombie and she can’t think straight. She also has difficulty sleeping. She basically lives in fear of a recurrence of that painful episode, and is terrified of surgery due to some of the horror stories she has read about some of the results.

    Could ITN be caused by wheat/gluten? And more importantly, can her condition be reversed by eliminating grains? If so, which grains? All? Or is it specifically gluten?

    • The simple answer is yes – Trigeminal neuralgia can be caused by gluten/grain exposure. I have seen this correlation in my clinic many times. That being said, there are other contributing factors to neuralgia – i.e. vitamin B12 deficiency, heavy metal toxicity…

      Elimination of all grains is recommended.

      All the best,
      Dr. Osborne

    Absolutely love your work Dr Osborne. My husband has had a very bad all consuming skin problem for 2 years. Dermatologists, doctors and other medical, people seem flummoxed and with no reasons why and what to do about it. It covers his whole bodyand is a rash that turns into ugly itchy stinging painful deep sores with scratching oozing and bleeding and is a nightmare to live with. We know from past IGG blood tests he has a reaction to gluten and gliadin and dairy. He has raised Iga levels, raised Ige levels and raised CRP levels. Dr Rodney Ford in Christchurch told him it is an imflamatory skin problem and stop all gluten, dairy and all grain.He had your book No Grain no,pain and told us to get it and follow it. After 3 days on no grain, dairy he felt an improvement and after 2 weeks can see a change for which he’s over the moon. One question though,please. The sores are still very painful. Do you think the pain could be due to nerve, neurological causes more than just actual pain from deep sores as the pain seems out of context to me. More amplified. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you for your good work. Sheron Pearson NZ.

    • I love Dr. Ford! Thanks for sharing Sheron.
      The pain could be neurological, but it could also be over sensitization. Give it more time. I would highly encourage your husband to have his nutritional status evaluated. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies are a common reason the healing process can be slowed, and B-vitamin deficiency is a common cause of persistent nerve pain.
      All the best,
      Dr. Osborne

  11. Rasmus Ernberg says:

    Hello, I am the father of a son who is having trouble with social skills and attention. We have noticed that cutting out gluten makes an improvement. However the dietist in charge of preschool and school kitchen wants to see a doctors recommendation that says that he should avoid gluten for health reasons. Is there any doctor who could issue such a recommendation without seeing us in person? We are located in a small town in Sweden and it is hard to find doctors who believe in benefit of avoiding glute.
