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,
