On Saturday October 16th the second annual Gluten Sensitivity & Celiac Forum will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Palo Alto. The event starts at 9 a.m. and continues until 4 p.m. A light lunch is included in addition to enjoying the gluten-free delights from many vendors around the area.
Our speakers are four national and international experts in the field of gluten sensitivity.
A brand new advancement in gluten laboratory testing will be presented by Dr Tom O’Bryan. The new tests will provide higher sensitivity as well as a window into which systems of the body are being affected by gluten.
Dr Rodney Ford, pediatric gastroenterologist and prolific author will be joining us all the way from New Zealand to share his research and insights. Dr Ford will be presenting some startling information on the true nature of gluten and whether, in fact, it should be consumed by anyone.
Cynthia Kupper, registered dietician and founder of the nationally renowned Gluten Intolerance Group, will be providing valuable information on how to best eat a nutrition-filled and healthy gluten-free diet.
Yours truly will also be speaking and I am excited to share some of the latest research about how gluten affects hormonal balance and predisposes us to various diseases, plus what exactly can be done about it.
