How Grains Contribute to Leaky Brain and Chronic Neurological Inflammation.

Grains are one of the most highly recommended staple foods in the world. Over the past 20 years, the gluten free diet trend has skyrocketed, but the contribution of grain to modern neurological diseases (Brainflammation) goes much deeper than gluten alone. In essence, going gluten free is often times not enough for patients to experience recovery. This presentation will discuss the science behind the often-overlooked elements about grain that play a role in nervous system damage. Gluten, lectins, sentry plant proteins, pesticides, molds, mycotoxins, heavy metals, excessive omega 6, and carbohydrate toxicity will all be discussed in detail along with the clinical laboratory work up necessary to identify these components.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Participants will be able to discuss the relationship between the history of grain as a dietary staple and chronic disease.
  2. Participants will be able to explain the scientific connection between grain consumption and neurological damage.
  3. Participants will be able to discuss the appropriate lab workup to help identify those with gluten and grain related illness.
