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…

Is Whole Wheat Worse Than a Candy Bar?

gluten free bread 024by Sean Croxton

A tablespoon of pure white sugar.

A Snickers bar.

A banana.

And a slice of whole wheat bread.

If I were to ask you which of the edible items above causes the greatest surge in blood sugar, which would you choose?

My guess is that most people would pick the Snickers bar.

It’s a candy bar, and candy bars are sugar bombs that lead to diabetes, right?

Yup, but…

The answer is actually the one you likely least expected — the slice of whole wheat bread.

I kid you not. If you take a look at the glycemic index (GI) — which measures how quickly blood sugar rises after eating particular foods — you’ll find that whole wheat bread has a GI of 71.

Sugar – 68. Snickers – 55. A banana – 54.

Whole wheat wins!

Or loses…

Podcast 227: How to Clear Up Brain Fog!

BrainBookCVR-199x300by Sean Croxton

And the fog rolls in.

You walk into a room with purpose, then all of a sudden you can’t remember why.

You’re in the middle of good rant and suddenly forget what you’re talking about.

Life is good, but you can’t help but feel depressed and unmotivated.

And those darn keys! It’s like they grow a set of legs when you’re not looking…

If you feel like your brain isn’t quite what it used to be, you’re probably right. Brain related disorders have become incredibly common. Unfortunately, both western and alternative medicine have completely missed the boat on the cause and cure for these issues, typically chalking them up to aging.

It’s not that simple.

While aging does in fact play a role in brain degeneration, there are plenty of other contributing factors that are not being addressed or even considered, including blood sugar problems, autoimmunity, stress, food intolerances, infections, neurotransmitter deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, and more.

Last night on Underground Wellness Radio, Dr. Datis Kharrazian — author of the book Why Isn’t My Brain Working? — joined me for a fascinating discussion about the root cause(s) of brain fog, depression, anxiety, and other common brain problems. Plus, how to fix them!
