The Gluten Summit

I feel incredibly grateful to have had the privilege of being part of the behind-the-scenes team for The Gluten Summit. It has been amazing to see all the people touched, to read the heart-felt messages pouring in and to see how many who have listened and received the messages and are now implementing the life-changing information.

Two years ago, when I was eye-ball deep in this research, writing my master's thesis on The Complexity of Celiac Disease and Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity, I was constantly "blown away" by the quantity and quality of medical research about these conditions and the lack of information getting to the general public. I kept thinking, "How does this not make the news?

An example: In 2006, researchers in Italy evaluated 132 celiac patients with clinically diagnosed ADHD. The participants, ranging in age from 3 to 57 years old, were evaluated before a gluten-free diet and again after adhering to a gluten-free diet for six months. ALL 132 participants or their parents noticed significant improvement in behavior.

Yes, you read that correctly, ALL noticed a significant improvement. Imagine if this was a drug study where ALL the participants noticed an improvement. It would be all over the media.

As a former fourth grade teacher, it breaks my heart that children are experiencing difficultly in school every single day because their parents don't know that the breakfasts they so lovingly feed them, are filled with gluten and may be preventing blood flow to their child's brain, making it incredibly difficult for them to sit still and learn.

If you are still of the opinion that the Gluten Free Diet is just a FAD, I want to encourage you to listen today, for FREE, to David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, ABIHM and Natasha Campbell-McBride, MD, MMedSci. Today, Tuesday, November 19th is Encore Day and 8 of the 29 interviews are available to watch.

Take 2 hours of your precious time and listen to two experts explain how gluten could be contributing to your or your loved one's health conditions. It could make an incredibly positive and profound difference in your or your family's health.

Wishing you the best of health,
