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.

Migraine Headaches, Severe Fatigue, & Vision Problems Resolved

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Recently, a patient of mine was kind enough to share her health success story with us.  She was suffering with migraine headaches, vision disturbance, poor sleep, and stomach upset.  After identifying the origin of her problems, she is on the road to a full recovery.  Watch her story below…

Migraine headaches often times have a food based trigger.  Common food triggers include:

  • Gluten
  • Coffee (caffeine)
  • Dairy
  • Wine (sulfites)
  • Processed meats (nitrates)
  • Aspartame (Nutrasweet)
  • Soy

Nutritional Deficiencies can also contribute to this disorder.  Common nutrient deficiencies linked to headache include:

In addition to food and nutritional triggers, bright light, lack of sleep, muscular and skeletal imbalances, and intense stress can also bring on this condition.

Unfortunately, most doctors fail to investigate food allergies,  nutritional deficiencies, or musculoskeletal problems in their patients.  If you suffer with migraine headaches, and your doctor refuses to properly address these issues, look for a functional medicine doctor who will.  As in Haley’s case (above), the answer might be on your dinner plate, not in a pill bottle.

If you know someone who could benefit from this testimonial, please share it with them by using the facebook share button above.  Together, we can reach and help more people.

Wishing you excellent health,

Good Sleep Habits = Good Health

Friday, June 24th, 2011

Lack of sleep is one of the most detrimental components to our health.  In the U.S., sleep apnea, insomnia, and other sleep disorders are a major contributing factor to diseases.  Lack of sleep has been linked to cancer, heart disease, diabetes, depression, and much much more.  In this video, Dr. Osborne discusses the importance of adequate rest, how sleep hormonal regulation works, why modern technology can cause deprivation, and the importance of sunshine.

Sleep disorders affect more than 70 million Americans.  Most of these problems can be resolved with intelligent and customized lifestyle changes.  Unfortunately, many doctors do not typically discuss these parameters with their patients.  The prescription pad is too often a first line of treatment.  The drugs account for more than 20 billion dollars annually in sales.

If you have been prescribed medications and still suffer with this problem, consider implementing  the strategies discussed in the video above.  If you still have problems beyond implementing these lifestyle changes seek a functional medicine doctor’s assistance.  Functional medicine doctors focus more on the causes and origins of disease vs. treating symptoms.

Dr. Osborne is a world renowned health expert (Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist, Chiropractor, Founder of Gluten Free Society, Author, and more).  His office, Town Center Wellness,  is located just outside of Houston, TX in Sugar Land.  If you would like to schedule a consultation, please call 281-240-2229.

Gluten Free Diet and Nutritional Changes Defeat AS, Uveitis, and Asthma

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

I commonly get asked – “Does a gluten free diet help this (insert disease name) autoimmune disease?”

The answer is typically yes.  Why?  It has been well established that gluten contributes and in many cases, causes these types of conditions.  We know that it creates leaky gut syndrome and gut bacterial changes that change the way the immune system behaves.  This in turn leads to the development of autoimmunity.  There are 140 different types of autoimmune disease.  Typically they are named based on their location.  For example:

  • Celiac disease (affects the small intestine)
  • Crohn’s disease (right side of the large intestine)
  • Ulcerative Colitis (left side of the large intestine)
  • Hashimoto’s (thyroid gland)
  • Dermatitis Herpetiformis (the skin)
  • Eczema and psoriasis (the skin)
  • Asthma (the lungs)
  • Osteoporosis (the bones)
  • Rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and Lupus (the joints)
  • Schizophrenia and bipolar disease (the brain)
  • Neuropathy, Epilepsy, and reflex sympathetic dystrophy (the nervous system and brain)

If you have been diagnosed with autoimmune disease…

For anyone with a diagnosis I recommend genetic testing for gluten sensitivity immediately.   Diet is too easy to change and has too great an impact to ignore.  Unfortunately most traditional doctors will tell patients that diet has nothing to do with disease.  This would not be the case if nutrition was actually taught in medical school.  If your doctor will not help you identify nutritional elements related to your disease, I recommend that you find a functional medicine doctor who will.

Wishing you excellent health,

Dr. Osborne
