    Hi I'm not financially secured to be subscribe for a membership here, but can some write down what Dr. O's suggested actions to avoid problems of gluten and hormones.  For not paying, I won't be learning all the information and scientific explanations of why it happens, but could someone who's watched the video write down in bullet point the end of his lecture that is about what to actually do about it?

    Charlie,

    The bottom line is that gluten can disrupt all sorts of hormone production in the gluten-sensitive individual from adrenal hormones to thryroid to brain (seratonin, dopamine, etc.) to sex hormones (including infertility)..  It's important to recognize that gluten toxicity may be the cause of the problem and to cut gluten (all grains) out of your diet and skin products completely.  It is also necessary to correct any nutritional deficiencies that may have resulted from eating gluten.  If you have a hormone imbalance, you may still need to treat it with medication (thyroid supplement, for example) until your body heals enough to correct the imbalance itself.  What you do not want to do is just to treat the imbalance without addressing gluten as the root cause.

    Sorry, I forgot to mention the other necessary ingredients in Dr. Osborne's recipe for healing:

    Exercise, sunshine (and full-spectrum light bulbs), sleep, and

    Avoidance of toxic chemicals – eating organic, eliminating plastics, filtering air and water

    Thanks Martha.  Oh I'm deep into the grain fee diet and actually do the Paleo diet so I'm an expert on the subject.  However, I was wondering if there as new strategies from Dr. O regarding foods, lifestyle, etc at the end of his lecture.  But I guess you answered that though it wasn't much from what I already knew.
