“Get Well, Look Good and Stay Healthy Living Gluten Free”

We started using this tagline in 2005 when we first published Glutenfreeworks.com.

Optimizing your health has always been our primary goal and we have helped millions of people do just that.

With the Covid-19 pandemic afflicting the world, it is more important than ever to maximize your health and get to the root cause of any ongoing health issues.

Italy is reporting 99% of those who are dying have other illnesses.

The top three illnesses being reported are high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease.

All three are included in the Gluten Free Works Treatment Guide:
Reversible Hypertension, Diabetes Disorders, Heart Disorders.

The Gluten Free Works Treatment Guide website is a self-treatment resource that will empower you with the information and tools you need to recover and optimize your own health and well-being as well as work with your healthcare providers to improve your treatment. 

Health conditions can persist or develop even after going gluten-free.

It is time to stop managing health conditions and fix them.

While standard medical treatment uses medications, procedures or surgeries to manage health problems, the Treatment Guide goes beyond treating symptoms to identify and fix the root cause.

This cause may be something as simple as a nutrient deficiency, a trigger that is causing inflammation, or a medication for one issue that is exacerbating another.

With the purpose of helping you achieve the best health you can, right now, we are offering you a subscription to the Gluten Free Works Treatment Guide for just $20.

Understanding and Correcting Health Conditions

Most people never truly achieve good health.

All of us suffer from different types of symptoms that arise in the future. That is just the nature of life.

Achieving good health requires understanding your symptoms and health conditions, recognizing whether they are related to the toxic effects of gluten within your body and their causes, (nutrient deficiencies that have developed from malabsorption for example), how they respond to a gluten-free diet and what you need to do to correct them.

The Gluten Free Works Treatment Guide was created to help you do exactly this.

Can Untreated Celiac Disease Make Your Child Mentally Ill? Watch These Recovery Videos!

If you or someone you know has a child with a mental illness, behavioral problem or unexplained neurological issue, you must watch this video. It vividly illustrates how gluten and celiac disease can cause neurological illnesses and how removing gluten from the diet can improve or cure the child. [Note: The title says two videos because there were two videos originally, but Youtube removed them. A reader informed us about the one below. Originally posted May 2009.]

Eamon Murphy started exhibiting mental aberrations and problems eating at three months of age. By the time he was three, his parents were frantically trying to understand what had caused his developmental delay in walking and talking, and now his trances, seizure-like episodes and regression. After a determined effort by his mother and a series of extraordinarily lucky events, he was finally diagnosed with celiac disease…and Read More »

Restless Leg Syndrome, Celiac Disease & Improvement on the Gluten Free Diet

RLS from low iron in celiac disease responds to a gluten-free diet

Low iron levels have been associated with increased severity of restless leg syndrome. The following medical case report discusses four patients with low iron and restless leg syndrome who were tested positive for celiac disease and placed on a gluten free diet. All four had improvement on the gluten free diet.

“Celiac disease as a Possible Cause for Low Serum Ferritin in Patients with Restless Legs Syndrome.”

Manchanda S, Davies CR, Picchietti D.

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, College of Medicine, 506 S. Mathews Avenue, Suite 190, Urbana, IL 61801, USA.

OBJECTIVE: To describe celiac disease as a possible cause for low serum ferritin in patients with restless legs syndrome (RLS). BACKGROUND: Low iron stores have been found to be a risk factor for RLS with serum ferritin levels less than 45-50ng/mL associated with increased severity of RLS. It has become routine clinical practice to test serum ferritin in the initial assessment of RLS. Celiac disease is a common genetic disorder that can cause iron deficiency.

METHODS: Consecutive case series of four patients with RLS and serum ferritin below 25ng/mL, who had positive screening tests for celiac disease. RESULTS: We report four patients who had serum ferritin <12ng/mL and positive screening tests for celiac disease. All had celiac disease confirmed by duodenal biopsy and response to a gluten-free diet. RLS symptoms improved in all four, with two able to discontinue RLS medication and two responding without medication.

CONCLUSIONS: In patients with RLS and low serum ferritin who do not have an obvious cause for iron deficiency, we suggest looking for celiac disease by simple, inexpensive serologic testing. Diagnosis and treatment of celiac disease is likely to improve the outcome for RLS, as well as identify individuals who are at risk for the significant long-term complications of celiac disease.

Is the Gluten-Free Diet Still Relevant?

Remember when the gluten-free diet was all the rage in the news?
 
Not anymore.
 
Now, it is more often than not treated as a scam.
 
The news even tells you it is dangerous…unless you are diagnosed by a doctor, of course.
 
Gluten is said to be something best left to doctors…the professionals.
 
If you beat the odds, and are actually successfully diagnosed with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, most doctors think all you need to do to get healthy is remove gluten from your diet .
 
A woman told us her doctor said, “just stop eating pizza and bagels,” after she was diagnosed with celiac disease.
 
Two years later, her daughter was born with a cleft lip.
