So much chronic unwellness can be attributed to gluten sensitivity and to leaky gut syndrome. I have written on both of these subjects before. Fatigue, pain, brain fog, depression, digestive symptoms, asthma, kidney disease, sore tongue, and vitamin D deficiency are a sample of the hundreds of possible manifestations of gluten sensitivity, which can affect any part of the body. What's new is the single blood test that checks for both gluten sensitivity and leaky gut syndrome with unsurpassed accuracy and economy.

Eliminating gluten-containing grains from your diet can have dramatic health benefits, especially if your immune system reacts to this protein. However, if you stop eating gluten and don't feel great after a reasonable period of time, something is wrong.
No matter how you currently feel, chances are that a scientifically-tailored personalized lifestyle medicine program can help you become healthier. The fact is that unhealthy changes can occur in the body decades before signs and symptoms manifest. This is certainly true of many autoimmune conditions. By the time symptoms develop, the immune system may have destroyed a lot of healthy tissue. To minimize the damage, early intervention is essential - but first the condition has to be identified.
One man's food is another man's poison. Truer words were never spoken. It is fairly obvious that a diet of potato chips and soda will lead to health problems. What may not be as obvious is that "good" whole foods can cause unhealthy changes in any given individual. Your headaches? Those might be from a food your eating. Your fatigue? That could be from a food you eat. Your joint pain, depression, skin rash, hair loss...just about any symptom might be the result of food.
Have you been tested for the condition that may stand between you and a healthy future?
For over two decades I have been excoriated by conventional medicine for evaluating and treating patients for "leaky gut syndrome". Thanks to a tsunami of published research, there is no scientific basis for denying this condition any longer.
When Trina came to see me for her first consultation on August 13, 2012, she was in poor health. She said she wanted my help with hypothyroidism. She had been diagnosed hypothyroid about a year before and began taking Synthroid (thyroid replacement hormone). Despite improvements on her blood tests, she wasn't feeling any better.
A Multi-Faceted Approach to Measuring Health & Wellness
Many individuals are walking around with an illusion of health. Some of these people don't feel all that well but because they get a "clean bill of health" at their yearly physical, they conclude they must really be healthy. The truth is that a conventional medical evaluation is well-suited to pick up some but not all advanced physical breakdown and certainly not earlier-stage, more subtle dysfunction.
