Weekly Round-Up – Dr. Perlmutter on Gluten Sensitivity
This week on my Weekly Round Up we are looking at the controversial Gluten Sensitivity. This is a great article from the highly respected Dr. Perlmutter, author of one of my favorite books called Brain Maker. But, I digress!
Gluten sensitivity gets a lot of press and it seems every other day I am reading an article about how it is all hog wash and unless you are a diagnosed celiac you should just go back to enjoying gluten. Yet, I know from personal experience this is not the whole story! The fact is there are studies that show both sides of this argument which is all too common it seems in science. That is why I really like the study sited in Perlmutter’s article. It is from highly respected institutions and it comes from the American Medical Association, which should give it some serious cred with all those naysayers that think gluten sensitivity is just pseudo-Science. They can’t use that argument anymore after this one!
Give it a read (it’s a quick one) here. https://www.drperlmutter.com/yes-gluten-sensitivity-is-very-real/#more-6008
Then give gluten free a try. The best way to know what works for your child’s body is to try it out and observe what happens. Give it a good try…like 4-6 weeks of strict avoidance and if symptoms diminish then….hmmm….maybe you are on to something good!
