Dr. Tom O'Bryan joins us today as we’re digging into gluten sensitivity and the impact it has on fertility.

I have talked about the importance of going gluten free for years.

As you may know I have non-celiac gluten sensitivity….plus premature ovarian failure.

I found out the connection too late…as I was fully in menopause.

If you are still cycling naturally there are steps we can take.

For me gluten causes all kinds of health issues (bladder infections, sinus infections, yeast infections and lots more).

Yes we are in the middle of a gluten free craze.

And not everyone needs to go gluten free, but as my guest Dr. Tom O’Bryan shares in our interview,

Both partners (yes that’s right!), both partners should go gluten free for at least 3 months (and ideally dairy and processed sugar free too!).

It’s time to draw the line in the sand.

Commit 100%.

Because gluten light does not work!

I'm excited to welcome Dr. Tom O'Bryan to the podcast. He is a world-renowned expert in the field of gluten-related disorders, Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS), Celiac Disease (CD) and their link to other chronic conditions, including autoimmune disorders and diseases.

In this episode you'll learn:

  • Why it is important for both men and women who are trying to conceive to go gluten free. Studies prove the chances of conception improve.


  • What should you do if you find out you have gluten sensitivity and you get pregnant? Should you re-introduce gluten during pregnancy? What are the risks?


  • If we are sensitive to gluten and then we consume it…how long does it take to heal the gut? What if we are already gluten free and it’s not working…what to do next.


  • Should we test for celiac disease? Is it worth it? We discuss the best tests for gluten sensitivity and celiac disease…hint your conventional doctor’s tests are extremely outdated.
