Gluten Sensitivity: A Laymen’s Primer

Gluten Confused? Glutenology can help…

This video discusses the differences between celiac disease, wheat allergy, gluten intolerance, and sensitivity.

Welcome to the first site dedicated to helping people identify and deal with gluten sensitivity.
Our mission is to: Educate the world about the broad reaching nature of gluten on human health and wellness. Provide easy to use, non invasive tools to help identify those who are gluten sensitive — including genetic testing. Provide the instruction through video, audio, and written tutorials for those trying to embark on a TRUE gluten free lifestyle. Provide healthy resources for those with gluten intolerance/sensitivity. Support research endeavors revolving around grains, gluten, lectins, and other compounds within grain that may harm human health. Provide an ongoing analysis and commentary of research performed in the field of food sensitivity/intolerance. Help those with gluten induced diseases re-establish their health without having to go through what Michael went through (see below).
