Workshop Overview & Description

This advanced autoimmune training course titled “Gluten, Wheat and Autoimmunity – Identifying and Reversing the Development of Autoimmune Disease” presents an in-depth understanding of the triggers and mechanisms of action creating the autoimmune cascade that eventually manifests as an autoimmune disease. The program will not only help you identify hidden symptoms of Autoimmune Disease years before a diagnosis is possible, it will also give you the knowledge to identify, support, and educate your clients/patients about intervention protocols that work to arrest the degenerative process and in many cases, reverse the autoimmune cascade.

In recent years, several studies have revealed the importance of early detection of autoantibodies as predictors for autoimmune diseases. Predictive Autoimmunity now gives us the tools to identify the underlying mechanisms years before tissue damage is extensive enough to produce organ dysfunction and symptomatology.

This course builds a more in-depth look at the recently burgeoning field and research of Autoimmunology and its many associated triggers. Whether it manifests as Alzheimer’s Disease, or Rheumatoid Arthritis, or Cardiovascular Disease, or Multiple Sclerosis, or fatigue, or brain fog – the mechanisms that initiate and ‘fuel’ these conditions are often predictable and identifiable.

Dr. O’Bryan will show you how to identify, help prevent, and regenerate from Autoimmune Disorders by combining the current science from medical and nutritional research with decades of clinical expertise. Attendees will earn the distinction of becoming a Certified Gluten Practitioner (CGP) and receive a certificate of completion, along with ongoing CGP member support.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify 6 mechanisms by which food-related disorders may impact on the development of autoimmune disease.
  • Recognize the potential contribution of the microbiota on the development of autoimmune disease.
  • Learn the role of barrier integrity in the development of autoimmune disease with examples from the literature ranging from conjunctival tumors to Alzheimer’s Disease.
  • Understand why many neurological, hormonal, musculoskeletal, and autoimmune conditions may be triggered by wheat or other environmental triggers.
  • Learn the potential neurological impact of maternal IgG antibodies on offspring tissue development.
  • Learn the clinical applications of treatment protocols for food-related neurological disorders.
