Gluten: Separating the Wheat from the Hype

Tuesday, June 3 6:30-8:00pm, Healthy Living Learning Center
This will be a technical discussion and research-driven presentation on the ins and outs of gluten intolerance with the goal of helping you better understand: Why is gluten an issue? Why now (as opposed to 20 years ago)? What happens when we consume gluten in the best and worse of cases? How do you know if it is a problem for you? What is gluten intolerance (as opposed to celiac disease)? How do you test for gluten intolerance? And, how to help you body recover from gluten-mediated damage. This will not be a class on ‘how to eat gluten free’ but will instead focus on understanding the gluten reaction and the clinically important aspects of gluten intolerance.

IBS, or How I learned to stop Bloating and love my Gut.

Thursday July 17 6:30-8:00pm, Healthy Living Learning Center
Often when a patient is given a diagnosis of IBS it seems like the doctor is really saying, “I don’t know what’s wrong so we’ll just call it IBS”. However, IBS does have a number of possible causes if one knows where to look. In this lecture we will discuss the most common causes of IBS - how to recognize and test for them and generally how they need to be treated. We will cover SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth), Food Intolerance/Sensitivity/Allergy, Dysbiosis (Yeast overgrowth, bacterial imbalance, parasites), and Motility disorders (things moving too quickly or slowly) - most cases of IBS are “curable” by addressing one or more of these common issues. Do you have bloating after most meals? Do you think that having a bowel movement once every few days is normal? Do you wonder why your belly yells at people across the room? Have you been told that everything is ‘normal’ when things are obviously not normal? Then this lecture is for you.

All lecture are free to the public. Please register by calling Healthy Living Customer Service: 802-863-2569. Feel free to email me with questions using the link or form on any other page on this site.
