Gluten Summit: The Round-Up!

At last, I have come to the final part of the Gluten Summit series: the summary! What are the main conclusions? What can help us most practically in our day-to-day gluten lives? Have a read of the round-up piece here:

Gluten summit Gluten Summit Summary: What Have We Learned?

In this report, I have picked out the best nuggets from the four key areas: Overview, Causes, Diagnostics and Treatment.

To read the introduction to the Gluten Summit, see here. Catch up with the mini-series 1,234 and 5.

I really hope you found this series useful and that it will open some eyes to the real problem of gluten-related disorders and overturn some of the pervading – and frustrating – myths about gluten illness. It most definitely is NOT all about coeliac disease or gliadin, and the traditional gluten free diet approach falls woefully short for many gluten-sensitives. If we only get that key message across to more people, then I’ve done my job!

I will shortly be putting the whole series as a free download on the site and I hope people will use it as a sort-of gluten-related disorders ‘primer’ and will give it to dissenting or simply gluten-uneducated friends, family and health professionals when they need to.

Finally, thank you to CoeliacsMatter, who commissioned the series and made me do it!

    Dear Micki

     

    A few months back you helped me get testing with Cyrex Labs. Since then I have had an interesting kind of success in getting better.  My sister sent me an article on resistant starch and how it feeds the good gut bacteria.  About 3 weeks after eating 2 tablespoons a day together with a teaspoon of psyllum husk, I have been able to lower my thyroid meds from 100 to 50.  I started noticing that I felt unbelievably stressed, the kind that comes with too much thyroid meds.  I thought it couldnt be possible that potato starch could make that much of a difference and so fast, even though I had read that the gut flora can be improved in as much as 5 days.  I even still a bit hyper and tomorrow I will be taking only 25mg.  At the same time my energy level has risen dramatically.  I have the feeling that life seems good, not that everything is so tiring and hard.  

     

    In 12 years I havent been able to lower my dosage.   I think this might be a solution for some.  

     

    Best regards

    Patty

    • How fab, I am pleased to hear that Patricia! So, you were using potato starch and psyllium, correct? Was that the article by Chris Kesser by any chance? If you have a link to it, please do share and then others can maybe look it up too, thanks. So glad you are feeling better.
