Dr. Tom O'Bryan is an internationally recognized speaker and workshop leader specializing in Gluten Sensitivity and Celiac Disease. He is a DC who has studied functional medicine and I first heard him speak in 2009 at the American Academy of Environmental Medicine Annual General Conference in Phoenix.
On his website he states the following:
"In the last 3 years, the acceptance of Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS) in the medical community as a distinct clinical entity has gone from that of being an orphaned child crying in the world for recognition, to an accepted, unique component of the triad of gluten-related disorders."
His web site has some very informative articles well worth reading.
In future issues I will provide a summary of the major scientific articles that have shown distinctive differences between celiac disease and non- celiac gluten sensitivity, which I shorten to gluten sensitivity.
To Your Health.
