I started my career rewriting the rules of nutrition by getting people off of sugar, gluten, dairy, and unhealthy fats. This was 1988, when no one was talking about gluten yet – except me.

Go Gluten-Free to Relieve Abdominal Pain and Osteoporosis

Even Without Full-blown Celiac Disease, You’ll Thrive On a Gluten-free Diet. Approximately one in 133 Americans has celiac disease, caused by sensitivity to gluten (a protein in wheat and other grains). But most don’t know it. Experts estimate that many, many more of us are gluten intolerant. Trouble is the symptoms of this food sensitivity vary greatly and resemble signs of other diseases like colitis, IBS, or wheat allergy. Clues Read More
