At the time of writing this post, I am just back from the big medical symposium on Gut, Brain, and Autoimmune Disorders: The Role of Food.
The conference was fantastic, and I learned so much!
The brilliant Alessio Fasano,M.D., gave an update on his research on the role of gluten in many health problems. He is the doctor that helped put non-celiac gluten sensitivity on the map, so that it is now recognized by traditional gastroenterologists.
Just like with our general health and well-being, he has helped us recognize that there is a spectrum of gluten sensitivity, as I have written about in my previous newsletters.
In addition, William Davis, M.D., the author of Wheat Belly gave about three hours of lecture that were very informative.
Some of my favorite lectures were from my friend David Perlmutter, M.D. who is an integrative neurologist in Florida. He spoke about the coming epidemic of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, and gave a lot of ideas on what we can do to protect our brain.
It was my intention to give you a summary of the conference in this week’s newsletter. However, there was so much information that it will take me some time to organize it.
Because I went out of town for a brief vacation this past weekend, I did not have time to get the organization of this information started. In next week’s issue, the Labor Day issue, I will begin to review some of the information I learned.
Until then, there are some good articles by my writers this week!
