Dr. Tom O'Bryan on The Existence of Gluten Sensitivity

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.
Dr. B


  1. Thanks for the link to Dr. Tom O'Bryan website. Reading his articles now and there is a really good one on Colostrum. Since most of us Celiacs have a leaky gut we could all do with some colostrum.

  2. I agree Suzanne, that colostrum plays an important role in regaining a healthy gut, and by extension a healthy body.
    This would be a great subject for a future blog entry. Thanks for sharing.
