Dr. Tom O’Bryan’s Personal Journey…
I discovered the world of wheat-related problems about 40 years ago when my ex-wife and I were struggling with fertility issues. After putting together a protocol, we got pregnant in 6 weeks. Years later, wheat reared its ugly head again in my family.
My 82-year-old godmother had mildly elevated liver enzymes. They just said to cut back on the alcohol. She never drank. They never looked into it.
After years of elevated liver enzymes, she was suddenly rushed to the hospital for intense stomach pain. Only 4% of her liver was functioning. The strain caused her blood vessels to burst and caused internal hemorrhaging. After 6 surgeries, she was eventually sent home to die. They didn’t know if she had 2 weeks or 2 months left, but they said she was not long for this world.
I had her tested for celiac disease. Results were positive. She had gone undiagnosed for years and the damage it caused was now threatening her life. She defied her odds and continued to live another year and a half, simply by following a gluten-free diet. What was her official cause of death? Cancer of the liver. What was the secondary cause? Undiagnosed celiac disease.
Her story is not unique. The doctors never checked. The science was there. Sometimes the only indication of celiac disease is elevated liver enzymes.
I have since made it my mission to educate people about food sensitivities and autoimmune conditions. After 30+ years, my work has just begun.
Autoimmunity remains the #3 cause of death. Food sensitivities are a common trigger to the immune response that causes autoimmunity. Gluten is one of the top offending foods.
I invite you to enhance your education and practice. Become a Certified Gluten-free Practitioner (CGP), and get the information you need to better meet the needs of your community and improve patient outcomes.
Stop Drowning And Find Your Way To Shore
Do you have patients/clients that insist they are following doctor’s orders to a “T”, yet they don’t appear to be improving as anticipated?
When patients find themselves in the pond of autoimmunity, and they are directly under a waterfall pounding them keeping them down, they may need a life jacket. This is when medications are employed. The often overlooked part of treatment is figuring out the root cause. What is in that waterfall that keeps them sick? As good practitioners, we must search upstream to uncover the source(s).
Regardless of your healthcare specialty, food sensitivities and autoimmune mechanisms may be underlying whatever condition is affecting your patient or client.
Over 300 autoimmune conditions have now been linked to gluten as a potential trigger. Once you eliminate the trigger and support the body’s healing process, you can arrest the progression of and sometimes even reverse symptoms.
Identify Early Biomarkers And Symptoms Of Autoimmunity
If you don’t fix what’s causing the problem, you can’t get better. You need to search for the root causes that are making them sick, and eliminate them.
Predictive Autoimmunity now gives us the tools to identify the underlying mechanisms years before tissue damage is extensive enough to produce organ dysfunction and debilitating symptoms. Yet many of our clients struggle to get properly diagnosed until after they are on the autoimmune spectrum exhibiting several symptoms and multiple health concerns.
The CGP Program takes you from start to finish – early identification, recognizing signs and symptoms, testing, how food sensitivities can trigger an autoimmune cascade, and protocols to follow to arrest the progression of and potentially reverse symptoms.
The Certified Gluten-Free Practitioner Course gives you the hard science, research and tools to help your clients/patients on a deeper level. Learn how to arrest the progression of, prevent, and sometimes even reverse symptoms of autoimmune conditions. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
