Our guest this week is Dr. Tom O'Bryan, a specialist in Celiac Disease and Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivities. He has been in the healthcare industry for more than 30 years and is the author of the book "The Autoimmune Fix". In this podcast, Tom tells us why he wrote the book and shares some freebies.
He will talk about his own personal experience at the age of 47 when he had an autoimmunity test. He had what he thought was perfect health and at the top of his game. He'll tell us what he found out and the changes he made to fix the problem.
We will talk also about antibodies and the importance of going for tests early to prevent elevated antibodies which eventually cause autoimmune diseases months or years later. Dr. Tom will explain to us what the Positive Predictive Value (PPV) test refers to, effects of toxins on women’s hormones, why women are more prone to autoimmune diseases, food sensitivities, testing options and the 3 biggest triggers to autoimmunity.

Yet they wonder why whenever they don't eat wheat they feel better.
