This year I published the book, “No Grain, No Pain.” This book is the culmination of my 15 years of research and clinical experience into the realm of the gluten free world. My journey began in the VA hospital after seeing patient after patient suffer with chronic autoimmune pain syndromes. Rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, ankylosing spondylitis, migraine headaches, hypothyroid disease, fibromyalgia were some of the most common diseases that came through the doors. Unfortunately, the standard of care in the hospital was to supply pain medications that did more harm than good.
The patients rarely got any better, because the pain medications came with some pretty hefty side effects including gut damage, vitamin and mineral deficiency, hormone disruption, immune suppression, fatigue, liver damage…the list goes on and on. When I asked if we could apply some fundamental nutrition with these patients, I was told that nutrition had nothing to do with disease.
I left the hospital and started my own practice. One of my very first patients was a young girl with a debilitating, painful joint disease called juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Her case was so bad that doctors didn’t know if she would make it. Her mother was told to prepare for her death within the next 6 months. Because of this, the Make-A-Wish Foundation actually stepped in and granted her and her family a wish.
Her condition racked her body with headaches, muscle pain, joint pain, indigestion, and stomach pain. She had been suffering since her introduction to normal foods at 20 months of age. She was in and out of the hospital so frequently that she had to have a permanent stent placed in her arm so that when she was hospitalized, it would be easier to give her an IV.
Imagine going through years of hospital trips, doctors visits, and horrible pain all before you reach the age of 10. This was the young girl’s story until her mother brought her into my office. After an extensive exam and laboratory testing, she was found to have non-celiac gluten sensitivity.
After the no grain, no pain approach, she became pain free and very much alive. She no longer has a plastic stent in her arm. She is growing normally. She doesn’t need to take pain medications to treat her symptoms. She is active in volleyball, and he has a new lease on life. She is alive and pain free today because she is grain free.
No Grain, No Pain
This is the reason I decided to write the book, No Grain, No Pain. Pain is the #1 reason people visit the doctor. It is the #1 reason for lost work days, the #1 reason that prescription drugs are dispensed. Because doctors don’t study nutrition in medical school, it is very rare that patients are informed that the food they eat can play a huge role in painful conditions. Food can either help control inflammation and provide the fundamental building blocks for healing, or it can cause inflammation leading to chronic and painful conditions.
The story above is only 1 of thousands of different patient stories who have been able to eliminate their pain and inflammation through the power of the No Grain, No Pain diet and my functional medicine protocols. This new book will allow me to share this life saving information with the world.

Who Can This Book Help?
It is estimated that autoimmune pain affects 46 million Americans. For chronic pain the numbers are even higher. If you have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, or celiac disease, this book is for you. If you suffer with inflammatory skin or bowel diseases, this book is for you. If your doctor has prescribed you fistfuls of medicine with no end in sight, this book is for you.
The truth is, those with chronic pain live shorter lives. Autoimmune sufferers have life expediencies that are about 26 years shorter than those without them. The traditional answer for these diseases is pain and immune suppressing drugs whose side effects are worse than the diseases themselves. It is time to stop the madness.
Ending chronic pain starts with the right food, the right nourishment, the right behavior changes. If you doctor has never talked with you about the connection between food and pain, it is time to pick up the solution – No Grain No Pain. This is truly a book that just might save your life.
Always looking out for you,
Dr. Osborne – The Gluten Free Warrior

Cannot wait to read this!
Looking forward to reading your book. I know grain is the cause of most chronic pain and cause or aggregate autoimmune disease. Other books by MDs that affirm this are Perlmutter’s Grain Brain and Davis’s Wheat Belly. Thank you!
I can hardly wait to read this book. Dr Osborn, thank you for helping my family, friends, and me. I appreciate all that you have done and continue to do. Blessings to you Dr Osborn. Keep on healing.
After seeing several MDs for pain I was referred to a rheumatologist that put me on sulfasalazine and prednisone. Diagnosis ankylosing spondylitis and psoriatic arthritis. . I finally had decent relief with occasional flare ups. After doing that for 5 years I discovered naturopathic medicine. I’m gluten free and dairy free. No meds now for 1 1/2 years. I feel better at 52 than I did at 45. I have so much energy, I sleep good and I lost 14 pounds without even trying. Nutrition is powerful!
Good going Lisa.
I took gluten and dairy out of my diet to lose weight and the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome disappeared!!
Is the book available in audio version?
Yes. You can buy audio on Amazon. Click the link above 🙂
Dr Osborne. After reading your book No grain No pain I could relate to almost each story. I have so many symptoms and need to start this change. I looked non the website to find a doctor and the closest one is 3 hours away. I can make the food changes but I also need the vitamins and minerals. What do you recommend?
Dr., why is bread all of a sudden bad for you? Jesus ate bread. The bible talks about “bread” many times and people in the past didn’t seem to suffer from all the nonsense we have now. Peanut allergies, all of a sudden kids can’t have pb and jelly, celiac, stuff nobody had problems with when I was a kid. What happened?
Bread is not suddenly bad for us. Although I would say that pesticides, molds, GMO, and farming practices of today are not in general very healthy for us. Gluten sensitivity was recognized in pre biblical times. Have you read No Grain No Pain? I discuss this and the history of grain quite thoroughly.
All the best,
Hello..our 6-year-old granddaughter was recently diagnosed with JIA with uveitis. They started weekly injections of methotrexate and also is on Naproxen. She Has never been on the growth charts because she is so small. Should I suggest to our daughter to have her gated for nonceliac gluten sensitivity? I am also GF because of sensitivity. Didn’t realize she might be able to be helped by gluten elimination.
Yes, yes, yes! Have you read the story of Ginger? I wrote about her in my book No Grain No Pain?
I would highly recommend that you introduce your daughter to this book. You should also look into the Prescription Pain Trap to learn more about the damage and danger of Naproxen.
All the best,
Do you have an update on whether your granddaughter tried going grain free and if so, how she is doing? I’m just starting to read the No Grain No Pain book but my son is 4 years into his uveitis journey. We have gone gluten free, dairy free and beef free with him but still have flare ups. Some of that is probably due to him cheating on his diet.
I had JRA now I’m 61 with RA, sojourn’s , emphysema but never smoked. You are do right about the drugs being worse than the illness. I’m weak and tired all the time and the Drs now say considering you’ve had RA most of your life, you’re doing pretty well. I don’t think so at all. Recipie ain the book? Where are you located?
Yes definately farming practices today have made bread so much harder to digest! They do not process bread like they used to! Yrs ago the would cut down the wheat,stack it & let it sit & germinate & let it create it’s own enzymes so it was so much more well tolerated!!
Hello Dr. Osborne,
About 6 months ago I started to have pain in legs and neck and widespread muscle twitching with tremors that never stopped and was all over my body with overwhelming anxiety I never felt anxious before so this all was new. I was afraid it may be MS and that to diagnose that doctors go thru elimination of other diseases first so I started my own research. I eliminated sugar and dairy added minerals and vitamins, exercise and meditate. The progress was very slow
I ate less bread and juiced a lot and noticed that i am not bloated anymore and my skin improved but the twitching and pain persisted. One day searching and reading online I read about your book and stopped eating bread and pasta and flour completely. My tremors subsided completely and twitching reduced. Now when I get glutened I get tremor in my legs the next day and pressure behind eye. I was never tested for celiac disease or gluten sensitivity and I am not sure if twitching will completely disappear but I do not feel that I will go crazy anymore. What was going on with my body was unbearable. I wonder if there is somebody else with the same problem . Thank you so much for your research!
07/05/2020-Hi, This is Teresa. I am 65 years old. I just discovered Dr. Peter Osborne. Id like to know if he can regulate my Estrogen/progesterone/testosterone, I’ve been using cream form since 2005 when I went thru menopause, also started Armour Thyroid. I have doubts about the dosages I’m being prescribed and also I am taking BP medication, but I am having a lot of cramps, legs, torso, buttocks. Also, since 2005 I have gained 50 lbs. I have some of the symptoms he mentions on the yeast overgrowth video, and have immense sugar cravings. I live in San Antonio, Texas, and I can either go see him at his office in Sugar Land or willing to have a virtual appointment. Thank you
