Are You Gluten Intolerant or Have Celiac Disease?

If you're gluten intolerant or have celiac disease what is your body doing when gluten is present?

Dr. Tom O'Bryan in this video describes what your body and immune system does when gluten is consumed.

Dr. O'Bryan also discusses whether or not people with gluten sensitivities may introduce gluten after a period of time, have it in moderation or stay completely away from it.

The Dr. goes on to explain about a 34 year old woman with celiac disease who had osteoporosis (malabsorption of Vit. D and calcium), recurrent anemias (malabsorption of iron), chronic fatigue, hairloss, and a number of other symptoms.

After going completely gluten free her osteoporosis was gone, her hairloss was gone, she had her energy back and her blood work was normal.

This video is approx. 10 minutes in length and worth watching.
