What You Will Learn
The Certified Gluten-Free Practitioner Program offers the most comprehensive practitioner education available on Celiac Disease, Gluten Sensitivities, Wheat-Related Disorders, and Autoimmunity. This course provides healthcare professionals with an in-depth look at the recently burgeoning field of Autoimmunology, including a deep understanding of how food sensitivities, the microbiome, and intestinal permeability contribute to the development of autoimmune disease and other chronic health conditions.

Dr. O'Bryan shares leading-edge scientific studies that demonstrate the potential triggers and mechanisms of the 'autoimmune spectrum' that eventually manifests as an autoimmune disease. Whether it’s Alzheimer’s Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Cardiovascular Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, fatigue, or brain fog – the mechanisms that initiate and ‘fuel’ these conditions are often predictable and identifiable.

Predictive Autoimmunity now gives us the tools to identify the underlying mechanisms years before tissue damage is extensive enough to produce organ dysfunction and debilitating symptoms.

Dr. O’Bryan gives wellness professionals the knowledge to identify, support, and educate patients/clients about proper testing for wheat-related disorders and autoimmunity. Learn intervention protocols that work to arrest, or in many cases, reverse the degenerative process by combining current medical and nutritional research science with decades of clinical expertise.

Designed to help you gain a deep understanding of how to:
  1. Identify and assess overt signs, as well as hidden symptoms
  2. Administer and understand proper testing
  3. Provide protocols based on test results and your assessments
  4. Educate your patients on the need for the care you can now provide them
A Few Course Highlights:
  • Current research and methods for early identification and assessment of overt signs and hidden symptoms of celiac disease, wheat-related disorders, and autoimmune disease – often years before a diagnosis is possible
  • Identifying symptoms of wheat-related disorders outside of the GI tract, such as depression, brain fog, anxiety, bone loss, muscle pain, and neuralgia
  • The potential triggers and mechanisms of the 'autoimmune spectrum'
  • How food sensitivities, the microbiome, and intestinal permeability contribute to the development of autoimmune disease and other chronic health conditions
  • Why following a gluten-free diet may not be enough to stop killer inflammation
  • The current state of lab testing, which tests to use, and how to evaluate results
  • Clinically proven approaches and protocols to support your patients/clients
  • How to educate your clients or patients and improve self-care compliance
