Celiac Disease

gluten-summit

Dr. Tom O’Bryan’s work changed my life in 2011.

I was deeply researching Celiac Disease and gluten-related disorders when I ordered his 7-hour DVD series for practitioners on “Identifying and Conquering Gluten Sensitivity Inside and Outside the Gut.

Much of that material shaped how I got better…

Not only that, but it shaped much of the Celiac Disease series I wrote that continues to save people’s lives every single day.

In honor of Dr. Tom’s free gluten summit going on right now, I wanted to share the top 3 earth-shattering facts I learned from his work that forever changed the course of this blog.

The Gluten-Free Diet Isn’t Enough

There’s no denying the fact that people with Celiac Disease or Gluten Sensitivity should avoid all gluten. Most Doctors tell them they’ll be fine if they follow a strict gluten-free diet. But how effective is the gluten-free diet for the people that need it most?

When I was diagnosed with Celiac disease in 2007, I had no idea what gluten-free food was. I’d never heard of it before and I definitely didn’t know where to buy it.

But at the time, sales of gluten-free food were on the rise and had just reached $926 Million. (1 PPT)

Fast forward to 2013, where SPINS, a market research firm that covers the natural product industry, reported a total of $12.4 billion in gluten-free sales during the 52 weeks leading up to August 4, 2012. (2)

(That’s 13.4X growth in 5 years!)

The “gluten-free” food industry is making a TON of money, while conditions like Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity are trending on Twitter and gaining more awareness each year.

TIME labeled the gluten-free movement #2 on its top 10 list of food trends for 2012…

Not only that, Domino’s now serves gluten-free pizza…

Dunkin’ Donuts is developing a gluten-free donut

Chelsea Clinton had a gluten-free wedding cake…

Gwyneth Paltrow included gluten-free recipes in her new cookbook, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck built her “G-Free Diet” brand…

The list goes on and on.

Gluten-Free Food Isn’t Just for Health Food Stores Anymore

Should a Non-Celiac be gluten-free?  This used to get you laughed out of a doctors office but the idea that gluten sensitivity is real has recently received some validation the in research.  Which is great news for all the Non-Celiac’s who have been telling their doctors this for years.  This past Sunday a gluten expert panel spent an hour covering these ideas and more common questions about gluten.

If you’re someone who’s not getting better on a gluten-free diet, or you’ve tried going gluten-free in the past… this video will explain everything, including why gluten-free diets make me so ANGRY!

Not only that, but I share the top three tips for someone that’s newly diagnosed with Celiac Disease or Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity. (HINT: None of them are the Gluten-Free Diet.)

I’m a pretty laid back guy, but I get a little fired up in this one. Plus, the outtakes give you a sense of my dry humor ha-ha.

I hope you enjoy it,

The Three Heads of Celiac Disease

As we discussed in my previous article in this series, the foundation of an effective Celiac Disease treatment plan starts with a real food diet that goes beyond gluten-free junk food.

Reversing Celiac Disease is a three-headed monster. We’re up against inflammation, leaky gut, and Gut Dysbiosis. To be brutally honest with you: slaying a three-headed monster takes everything we’ve got.

And supplements are a critical part of “everything we’ve got.”

A word of caution… to supplement literally means, “something added to complete a thing, supply a deficiency, or reinforce or extend a whole.”

Supplements are a “supplement” for a reason. They support the whole of a treatment plan. They plug holes and deficiencies to reinforce what we’re already doing.

So, if you’re reading this and treating Celiac Disease with a gluten-free diet, the truth is supplements aren’t going to help much until you take your treatment plan seriously and stop eating processed foods.

If you’ve got diet handled and you’re ready to take your health to the next level, I’m going to share why everyone with Celiac Disease should take vitamin D.
