 Gluten Sensitivity Explained – Dr. O’Bryan

Gluten Sensitivity

Have you heard of Gluten Sensitivity or Celiac Disease?  Well, I had heard of them however I hadn’t done much research on this topic.  Until last year is when I was first introduced to Dr. Tom O’Bryan.  I was very fortunate to be able to watch and learn from the Paleo Summit and Dr. O’Bryan was one of the very first interviews I watched.  To say I was blown away by the information was an understatement.  

Today I have an interview with Dr. O’Bryan and Sean Croxton and the topic is gluten sensitivity.

What is really interesting in this interview and some of the other things I have read on Celiac Disease and & Gluten Sensitivity is the signs of gluten intolerance do not just manifest in the gut!  Migraine headaches, anxiety, fatigue, thyroid problems, rheumatoid arthritis and so much more.

What I like about this interview is that it is easy to follow along.  There is not the doctor speak that I have heard in other interviews that make it challenging to understand.  What I like about Sean Croxton is his knowledge and the way he shares it with his audience. Always very enjoyable, and I walk away learning new things from him

What you will learn from this interview is about Gluten Sensitivity:

  • What is it?
  • How to test for it?
  • How much gluten can someone with Gluten Sensitivity consume? (You will be shocked at Dr. O’Bryan’s explanation!)

The whole interview here is about 25 minutes and in my opinion well worth the time.

Let me know your thoughts on this interview. For me, this info was life changing!

Gluten Sensitivity & Eating Gluten-Free: Medical Conditions And Meal Ideas

Without a doubt, you’ve heard numerous health experts preach about going gluten-free. Do you have the slightest clue what gluten is? If you are like most women (especially middle-aged and older women), old habits are hard to change.

Gluten is found in wheat, and you likely grew up with wheat products around your home, such as bread and pastries, flour and snacks, and grew up just fine, right? Well… let’s just say things could have been even better.

The fact is, going gluten-free really is beneficial to our health, and more people really should adapt to this lifestyle.

This also means adapting your cooking style to the new ingredients. However, before we delve into some great gluten-free meal ideas, let’s have a quick look at the dangers of gluten in our diet.

Celiac Disease

This is a serious disease resulting from the immune system responding to gluten as a foreign body. The result is a breakdown in the lining of the intestinal system, making for bloody stools, poor absorption, and excruciating pain.

Brain Disorders

This is again related to the immune system developing a response to gluten and causing inflammation of surrounding organs. This can predispose the individual to serious neurological conditions like epilepsy.

Skin Diseases

Again, related to sensitizing autoimmune system. The result is damage to the cells of the skin and inflammatory rashes

The pattern developing is that most of the effects of gluten are related to having a sensitive immune reaction to its consumption. Though originally thought of as rare to encounter this sensitivity, it is now known that more than a third of all people are gluten insensitive.

Removing gluten from the diet may be beneficial to anyone, as gluten is not considered an essential source protein.

I remember when I realized I had a gluten sensitivity and thought the foods I would have to eat would taste like cardboard.  I was so wrong. So, are you ready to make delicious gluten-free meals? Try these out as soon as you can!

    I'm not gluten sensitive but I'm allergic to wheat. It's great how many new products are out there for us. I'm just trying the Chebe mixes. Pretty cool!
