Modern diets, gluten intolerance, and autoimmunity – Episode 23 with Dr Tom O’Bryan


Did you know that our modern diets, gluten intolerance, and autoimmunity are all linked! Have you ever experienced any kind of negative reaction following food intake? Do certain foods cause itchy mouth, sneezing, bloating, discomfort, gas, or bowel upset? Do you ever feel irritable, moodiness, fatigued, sudden drops in energy, or mental fogginess? All of these symptoms and more could be signs of food sensitivity, especially to wheat, gluten, dairy or sugar.

Episode 23 features world leading wheat/gluten and autoimmunity expert, Dr Tom O’Bryan. Not only a well of knowledge on the subject, Dr Tom is also an excellent speaker and has a unique way of teaching this vital health information in memorable ways. Given a little freedom to roam during the interview, Dr Tom also drops in a few fascinating facts or ‘truth bombs’ on a few other important health topics such as fertility and brain health.


When it comes to getting healthy, Dr. Tom O’Bryan’s goal for you is ‘Making It Easy to Do the Right Thing’. As an internationally recognized, admired and compassionate speaker focusing on food sensitivities, environmental toxins, and the development of autoimmune diseases, Dr. Tom’s audiences discover that it is through a clear understanding of how you got to where you are, that you and your Dr. can figure out what it will take to get you well.

Dr. O’Bryan is considered a ‘Sherlock Holmes’ for chronic disease and metabolic disorders, teaching that the underlying mechanisms that trigger the development of chronic disease are the key to health. He holds teaching faculty positions with The Institute for Functional Medicine and the National University of Health Sciences. His 2016 ground-breaking book, The Autoimmune Fix, won the National Book Award and ranked first in several categories on Amazon. The book outlines the step-by-step development of degenerative diseases and gives us the tools to identify our disease process years before the symptoms are obvious.

Dr. O’Bryan’s latest book ‘You can Fix your Brain’, published in Sep 2018, will no doubt be a great success.
