Podcast #340:
Dr. Tom O’Bryan Responds to The Gluten Lie.

Guest: Dr. Tom O’Bryan

This one is by popular demand.

A few weeks ago, my podcast interview with Alan Levinovitz, author of The Gluten Lie, caused quite a stir.

If you missed it, here’s the link.

Due to a few controversial statements made during the show, my inbox nearly blew up with requests for a rebuttal episode with Dr. Tom O’Bryan, host of The Gluten Summit.

Dr. Tom was more than happy to give his take on The Gluten Lie. In fact, he was FIRED UP!

Hear EVERYTHING he had to say in today’s episode of Underground Wellness Radio.

By the way, if you’re a health practitioner, you’ll learn about next Tuesday’s FREE “Autoimmune Intervention” webinar with Dr. Tom and me.

Episode #340 is brought to you by our brand new sponsor, Thrive Market.

I’ve been looking for a show sponsor for almost 7 years and could never find a good fit. Watering down the show with unnecessary ads just to make a buck was never my thing.

And that’s why I’m happy I could gain a sponsorship from a business that I actually use. Thrive is like the Costco for real food and non-toxic products. It’s 100% online and lets you save up to 50% off what you pay at the retail stores.

I don’t know about you, but saving money on food is pretty much awesome. :)

Listen to today’s episode and find out how you can win a $1000 shopping spree and/or a free membership from Thrive.

Happy Friday!

Podcast #336: The Gluten Lie.

Alan Levinovitz

Guest: Alan Levinovitz

Break’s over!

Underground Wellness Radio is officially BACK with a brand new interview with Alan Levinovitz, author of The Gluten Lie.

Yes, The Gluten LIE.

Is Alan saying that there’s no such thing as celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity?

Nope.

But he does make some very interesting and valid points about WHY so many people are suddenly becoming gluten sensitive when they never really had a problem with it before.

If you watched The Depression Sessions, many of our experts discussed the power of belief when it comes to the effectiveness of antidepressant drugs.

In other words, there’s a lot of science showing that antidepressants work because the person taking them believes they will work. In many studies, people given sugar pills that they think are antidepressants experience elevations in mood and energy. That’s called the placebo effect, of course.

But have you heard of the nocebo effect?

The Gluten-Free Hoax [VIDEO]

The Gluten Free Hoax

I like gluten-free beer.

So, every so often I’ll mosey down the road to the local health food store and score myself a six-pack before the big game.

A couple months ago, while swiping my debit card to complete my purchase, the guy bagging my brewskies initiated an awkward discourse. It went like this…

Bagger: Do you have celiac?

Me: No, I don’t.

Bagger: Then why are you buying gluten-free beer?

He had that I-should-be-rolling-my-eyes-but-I’m-at-work look on his face, as if I were some dunce just following the gluten-free crowd.

If I had the time I would have broken into full YouTube video mode and dropped some truth bombs on him, but the checker was already handing me my receipt.

So I replied…

How to Avoid Gluten at Restaurants!

by Sean Croxton

This is great.

I know a few people who are HIGHLY sensitive to gluten.

I mean, even the most minute exposure to the stuff — aka “getting glutened” — will have them bedridden and/or on the toilet for the next few days.

No bueno.

So for these folks, it is of utmost importance that they remain exceedingly vigilant while dining out.

But remember, sensitivity to gluten can be a silent killer, slowly eroding your intestinal lining, blood-brain barrier, and other tissues before the overt signs and symptoms kick in.

In other words, you don’t have to have extreme reactions to gluten to keep a watchful eye on it.

The good news is that many restaurants these days are offering gluten-free menus, and servers aren’t as clueless about gluten sensitivity as they used to be.

With so many hidden sources of gluten, how can you MAKE SURE that there’s none on your plate?

In today’s video, Dr. Tom O’Bryan shares an awesome tip he learned from Gluten Summit presenter and Certified Nutritionist Jaqui Karr.

Can’t wait to try this one myself…

Dr. O’Bryan’s Gluten Summit starts Monday morning. Get registered to attend at:

Podcast 230: Brain Grain with Dr. David Perlmutter

grain-brain-bookby Allyson Drosten-Brooks

Heart healthy.

Lowers cholesterol.

These familiar labels are stamped across products up and down the supermarket shelves.

They’re the lines that you hear repeatedly during commercial breaks.

And for those who don’t know any better, thy are what people look for when making their food choices.

But here’s the thing – cholesterol is VITAL for life. If we didn’t have cholesterol, we’d be dead.

And the war against cholesterol needs to end now.

Dr. David Perlmutter, author of Grain Brain, was recently a guest on UW Radio and discussed the role of cholesterol for many essential life functions.

For example…

Did you know that 25% of the cholesterol in your body is found in the brain, where it is an antioxidant, helps build neuronal membranes, and is the precursor that allows your brain to make vitamin D? (Estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and cortisol, too.)

With that in mind, why would we want to lower cholesterol, hence inhibiting those functions that are vital for life?

Dr. Perlmutter also shared the shocking results of a study observing the correlation between cholesterol levels and cognitive brain function. But you’re going to have to listen to the show to find out the results…

Bottom line is, cholesterol is your friend helping you live a long, healthy life. Not your enemy.
