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…

Podcast 232: Seriously, Stop Eating Gluten.

imagegetter.jspby Sean Croxton

Is gluten contributing to your health problems?

There’s one way to find out, and it doesn’t exactly require expensive testing and such.

Just STOP eating it.

Do it for 30 days and see if you feel better.

In my experience working with health coaching clients, nine out of ten people find that some, if not all, of their nagging health problems tend to disappear with the removal of gluten from the diet. When they start eating it again, the problems come right back.

Two plus two, right?

By now, everyone has heard of a gluten-free diet. Some people swear by it. Others call it quackery or a fad.

But this is no fad, my friends. This is science.

Our friend Dr. Tom O’Bryan has put together a FREE online summit that will inform you on the how, what, and why of gluten sensitivity.

This is Your Brain on Gluten.

brainonglutenby Sean Croxton

You eat your morning toast, then can’t remember where you put the car keys?

You have a sandwich for lunch, then can’t seem to focus on your afternoon tasks.

Coffee, please!

Your kids slurp down whole grain cereal for breakfast, then come home from school with notes from their teachers about “attention deficit”.

Could these all be connected?

According to Dr. Tom O’Bryan — renowned gluten expert and host of the upcoming Gluten Summit — the scientific literature seems to think so.

In fact, the research shows that the consumption of gluten can cause reduced blood flow to the brain.

Like the doc says in today’s video, try crossing your legs for two hours, then stand up and walk.

This is your brain on gluten — low blood flow, poor function.

Click THE VIDEO below to watch the first of a series of 3 videos the doc and I filmed this week sharing a few of his favorite pearls from the summit.

The Podcast about Gluten-Free Lies, Leaky Gut, & JERFing. (#218)

sad-breadby Allyson the Assistant

As many of you know, Sean has been feeling a bit under the weather this week so I’m stepping in to share with you guys some awesome info from Dr. Peter Osborne’s show on UW Radio last week, The Gluten Free Lie.

May 18th will mark my 3-year anniversary working for Sean and let me tell you, since then, I’ve learned a TON about the evils of gluten.

But the coolest thing about working for Sean is that I’m always learning more. I know consuming gluten is linked to developing autoimmune disease, but listening to Dr. Osborne’s podcast really helped shed some light on the science behind it.

Simply put, ignoring a gluten sensitivity leads to leaky gut.

And leaky gut leads to autoimmune disease.

How can this happen?

The cells in the gut that line the intestine are tightly bound together to keep bacteria and toxins from the food we eat inside the GI tract, preventing them from getting into the bloodstream.

Gluten can cause the gut cells to open up and drift apart, allowing food proteins to slip between the cells. Since 80% of our immune systems resides in the lymphatic system behind the gut wall, the escaped food proteins start to cause an immune reaction.

Here’s the kicker – molecular mimicry.
