    Dr Osborne went into great details explaining the 7 different reactions to gluten. News to me that there are no gluten-free grains. Grains are not good.

    This could have been a very valuable
    class at Medical School!

    Oops..what are the 5 classes of proteins within grain? Is wheatgrass juice
    safe to drink? I mean does it contain gluten? What exactly is ATP and how
    do you spell it out? You said there are 7 different kinds of reactions to
    gluten…I only got 5 out of the talk…did I miss something?

    Will certainly look forward to your book.

    The more information I understand (Which your interview provided with
    greatly) the more I am concerned with taking immune suppressing drugs for
    Rheumatoid Arthritis.
    Can you direct me to more specific information on this topic?
    I am looking forward to your book! Thank you….

    Hi I don’t try to argue your findings but did you look at difference between
    modern grain products and traditionally leveled breads used long ago. Plus
    for instance all asian cultures grains are daily staple food and it doesn’t seem
    to be affecting them the same way- I guess you are trying to answer this
    right now as I am listening. One more comment masai tribe in africa
    traditionally consumed 3-4 l of milk a day Diet like this would probably killed
    modern day man,but they seemed to trive on this partially because they
    used 11 sapponin rich herbs in preparation of their food .

    This is a wonderful talk. I will
    definitely cut the grains out of my
    diet. I have already cut out wheat,
    rye, and barley and only eat gluten
    free oats, quinoa and corn. This is
    really hard though.

    There is always too much conflicting information in these Summits. Dr
    Tom O’Brien of the Gluten Summit says there is “gluten is not bad for
    you… bad gluten is bad for you” ! He states that the real bad gluten is
    wheat, barley, rye and that yes, you can have allergy to other grains but
    that it is only these three that are responsible for the auto-immunity. Yet
    other places we learn that all grains have gluten. What is the truth? Which
    grains can you eat and which are “the best” as it were. Listening from the
    UK. Great information always but when you are dealing with the
    devastating effects of auto-immune conditions and the doctors you see
    are all talking rubbish, you just get desperate to follow the right path.

    Can gluten cause a malabsorption of carnitine? I have been
    ill with Epstein Barr infection and chronic fatigue with
    debilitating muscle weakness. My dr found low carnitine in
    my blood and I now supplement with levocarnitine which
    has alleviated my weakness and fatigue.

    • Yes, gluten can damage the intestinal
      lining leading to malabsorption of
      many nutrients – carnitine included.
      Glad to hear you are supplementing
      and feeling better!
      Kudos to your doctor as well.
      All the best,
      Dr. Osborne

    • Lily,
      No. Soaked and sprouted pseudograins
      are not OK on the TRUE gluten
      free/grain free diet.

    Do chia seeds contain anti-nutrients? Is it ok to use organic
    chia seeds in a gluten-free diet?
    Also, same question about flaxseeds. Is it ok to use organic
    flaxseeds in gluten-free diet.
    How about organic, cold pressed flax oil?
    Organic cold pressed chia seed oil?

    Does fermenting grains transform the gluten so it’s no
    longer harmful?

  • By: Andrea

    Could you please point me to research that shows that
    soaking seeds and grains are harmful to the body.

    By soaking grains and sprouting, the enzyme inhibitors are
    released and the nutrients become accessible, correct?

    Is it true that wheat grass and barley grass sprouted and
    harvested before 10 days contains no gluten?

    What about fermenting flour for sour dough bread? I have
    heard this process breaks down the gluten, do you have
    research that shows this to be false?
