Content of the seminar
Day 1 – Gluten Sensitivity
Gluten is a hot topic of our time. Gluten is a family of proteins found in many grains. The family of gluten proteins includes wheat, rye, barley, rice, corn, quinoa, oats and more. Some of the members of the gluten proteins are primarily toxic as they can not be digested completely by humans. These grains high in gluten are dominant in todays nutrition. In fact, about 50% of all the calories humans consume worldwide these days come from wheat, corn and rice. Grains are not necessarily bad, they have their benefits. Still this dominant consumption or overconsumption of grain, often of poor quality, has been proven to be primary reason for obesity worldwide. Next to the high carbohydrate content the main factors are that the type of gluten found in wheat, rye and barley will cause inflammation and intestinal permeability in many.
The gluten-free trend is now a multi-billion dollar industry gaining in popularity with the general public. Justifiable questions are arising as to its real health benefits. For those patients with celiac disease going glutenfree is undeniable and essential medical nutrition therapy.
This presentation will include a summary and overview of the current literature differentiating Celiac Disease, non-celiac Gluten Sensitivity and Wheat Allergy with emphasis on recognition, accurate testing (Immunoglobulin, antibody, and cytokine differentiations) and treatment protocols respectively.
