Glutenology Meeting – Dr. Peter Osborne Unveils Gluten Free Warrior Shirts

Monday, September 26th, 2011

We had a fabulous TRUE gluten free meeting this weekend. The topic?  How gluten sensitivity causes hormone imbalance and contributes to disease.  We talked about:

More than $2000 dollars worth of prizes were given away, including 2 Spectracell vitamin and mineral blood tests, an Elisa Act allergy test (measures 315 food, chemical, and environmental toxin reactions), multiple bottles of gluten free multivitamins, and more.

One of our guests, Kathryn, flew in from Chicago to make the meeting. That’s me and Kathryn to the right. You can also see in this picture the front of the new Gluten Free Warrior T-Shirts. That’s right. It is official, the Gluten Free Warrior shirts have been finalized. Thanks everyone for providing us feedback to get this done.

We also had special guest, Lynn Clark, from Special Treats Gourmet. She served up organic, TRUE gluten free delicacies. I have to say, they were delicious. Lynn provides cooking classes, grocery store training, and education for those trying to improve their health. You can check out her website at

As usual we also had a beautiful lay out of TRUE gluten free foods. Multiple types of salad, fruits, deliciously prepared beef and fish dishes to name a few. We will be posting these new recipes to our forum section this week.

I have to say, if you missed this meeting, you missed one of the best meetings ever put on by Gluten Free Society. The information, food, and social ambiance were the best yet.

Not to worry, if you are a member, we will be posting the full meeting video this week.

Wishing you excellent health,

Dr. Osborne – The Gluten Free Warrior


I almost forgot to show you the back of the new shirts.  After posting a prototype shirt 2 weeks ago, we took everyone’s feedback to finalize the design.  The most requested feature?  The Gluten Hydra.

Emergency Alert: FDA Attempting to Ban Natural Supplements

Monday, September 19th, 2011

If you take supplements as part of your approach to maintain good health or as part of your approach to naturally treat different health conditions, you should be warned that the FDA is getting ready to try and intervene with your ability to do so.

It appears that the FDA is using the banner of “consumer protection” to prevent you from buying already proven and time tested vitamin, mineral, and herbal supplements.  A similar approach was taken when ephedra was banned by the FDA.  This attack on your right to natural agents stands to greatly benefit the pharmaceutical industry.  It would serve to turn commonly used supplements into prescription medications.

Why is This Dangerous for Your Health?

The vast majority of physicians in the U.S. have no nutritional back ground, making them unqualified to be the leaders on this issue.  How many times have you heard your doctor talk down to you when you brought up supplements at a visit?  Point being, do you really want to have to rely on your primary care doctor to have access to omega 3 supplements?

Many medications (both prescription and over the counter) cause vitamin and mineral deficiencies.  For example, your doctor commonly prescribes cholesterol lowering drugs (statins) and blood pressure lowering drugs.  The chemicals interfere with your body’s ability to produce the vital nutrient coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10).  CoQ10 deficiency causes elevations in blood pressure, muscle weakness, muscle pain, liver damage, and congestive heart failure.  If the FDA is successful in taking away your ability to buy supplements, you would not be able to proactively address these issues.  Think about it…can you recall the last time your doctor actually made a recommendation about a supplement to counter balance the negative nutritional side effects?

What can you do?

Contact your local representative now.  I have provided a link below for you.  Let them know that you are concerned about this attack on your personal freedom to maintain your health without government intervention.

The Great “Fat is Bad” Myth Debunked

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Fat is Good –

Eating fatty foods does not make one unhealthy or obese.

Depriving your body of fat can have serious detrimental effects to its function.  Your brain, your nervous system, your hormones, and the cell walls of your body are made from healthy fats.  Therefore, for your body to function at its optimal level, you need to replenish your body with a good source of FAT in your diet.  Key word  – GOOD!

Over the last 20 years, the “low-fat” “no fat”  products have been promoted heavily by commercials and doctors alike as heart healthy choices.  These products have taken over the shelves at the grocery store.  From milk and yogurt to candy (yes that’s right, candy) people have been  manipulated  into thinking that if it’s “low fat or no fat” this will help lower their cholesterol, reduce their risk of heart disease, and help them lose weight.  In fact, the opposite is true.  Recent research from the journal Behavioral Neuroscience found that fat substitutes can interfere with the body’s ability to regulate food intake which leads to inefficient use of calories and weight gain.

Fat is an Essential Nutrient –

What most people don’t know, including many doctors, is that Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin K, and Vitamin E are fats.   Eating low fat reduces the intake of these important essential nutrients.  Additionally, the omega 3 fats are essential to the human body and can only be found in healthy fat containing foods.  What does that mean?  Without these fats, your body cannot sustain normal function.

Fat Does Not Cause Heart Disease –

The medical community has falsely placed blame on fats and lipids as a cause of heart disease.  What they don’t tell you is that the only type of fat that contributes to heart disease is man made chemical fats – These are known as Hydrogenated Fats. These lipids are commonly referred to as saturated fats.  It should be know however, that not all saturated fats are hydrogenated, and not all saturated fats are bad for you.  Only the man made ones.   Hydrogenated fats are not found in nature.  They are made by chemically forcing a hydrogen molecule into vegetable oils using a toxic metal catalyst.  These types of fats are commonly used as a preservative.  Common products with hydrogenated oils are:

  • Peanut butter
  • Crackers
  • Margarine and other butter substitutes
  • Cake icing
  • Chewy candies (Starburst, Skittles)
  • Processed baked goods (cakes, cookies, etc)

Hydrogenated fats are known to increase obesity, heart disease, cancer, and other chronic inflammatory conditions.  So we can safely say that the “skinny” on this chemically created fake food is that it will make you fat and sick.  To the contrary, diets rich in natural omega 3 fats are known to reduce inflammation, pain, reduce the risk of heart disease, lower LDL cholesterol, raise HDL cholesterol, and reduce triglycerides.

Eating Low Fat is Not Healthy –

Not only does eating a “low-fat” diet deprive your body of essential nutrients (listed above), but it doesn’t lead to the weight loss you want.  In 2009, a study showed 645 obese patients who used a low-fat diet had NO CHANGE in waist circumference.

Don’t get drawn into the trap that man-made and man-altered products are better and healthier for your body than the food that God has provided.   Take a lesson from the past – Margarine, olestra (this one causes anal leakage), saccharin, aspartame, and sugared up cereals were (and in some cases still are) promoted as healthy and safe alternative foods, yet the scientific and social evidence would say otherwise.

Good Sources of Healthy Fats –

Common Sense Must Win in the End

If you need to lose weight and restore your health, you have to follow these simple principles:

  • Exercises regularly (walking is not exercise)
  • Don’t lead a sedentary lifestyle
  • Eat Real Food!

If you doubt that low fat diets work, all you have to do is look around you.  We are surrounded by people who buy and consume low fat, no fat, and reduced Calorie products on a regular basis.  If these foods work, why is America so obese?
