One of the nation's top clinical nutritionists presents her 14-day program for treating and reversing gluten sensitivity, a condition that affects as much as 35 to 50 percent of the U.S. population and is a major contributing factor to an array of chronic illnesses Struggling with weight gain?

According to preeminent clinical n One of the nation's top clinical nutritionists presents her 14-day program for treating and reversing gluten sensitivity, a condition that affects as much as 35 to 50 percent of the U.S. population and is a major contributing factor to an array of chronic illnesses Struggling with weight gain? Plagued by fatigue? Suffering from joint pain? According to preeminent clinical nutritionist Dr. Shari Lieberman, these symptoms are among the hallmarks of a little-known but surprisingly common sensitivity to gluten, a protein in certain grains. Dr. Lieberman has been investigating gluten sensitivity for more than 20 years. In her experience, eliminating gluten can alleviate many troubling symptoms for which doctors often can't find a cause, as well as chronic conditions for which mainstream medicine offers little hope of relief—including rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, psoriasis, fibromyalgia, lupus, and irritable bowel syndrome. In fact, 85 percent of Dr. Lieberman's clients who follow a gluten-free diet report dramatic improvement in their health—and scientific studies support her results. In The Gluten Connection, Dr. Lieberman presents a simple questionnaire to help readers assess their risk for gluten sensitivity and provides a 14-day eating plan to start them on the path to improved health and vitality. She also recommends nutritional supplements to support and maximize the therapeutic potential of a gluten-free diet.

    I'm interested in finding out more about the connection between different ailments and gluten sensitivity, but this particular book was too focused on anecdotal evidence for me. Sure, it had a lot of statistics, but it had a ton of stories that started with lines such as, "There was a 53 year old woman in North Dakota..." It got old. The connection between gluten and health issues is fascinating and a little scary!

    Another of my favorite health books. Helped me understand that lectin in nightshades and casein in milk can mimick gluten in wheat and cause reactions. A great insight to my health!

    So far this is the most valuable book on gluten intolerance that I have encountered. The first half of the book looks at studies and research about how using a gluten-free diet has resolved all kinds of long-standing health problems which weren't responding to normal treatment. She also gives a complete scientific (but understandable) explanation of the responses the body has for allergy and intolerance (showing how they are different responses and why that makes an intolerance more dangerous in So far this is the most valuable book on gluten intolerance that I have encountered.

She also gives a complete scientific (but understandable) explanation of the responses the body has for allergy and intolerance (showing how they are different responses and why that makes an intolerance more dangerous in the long run). She also shows how wheat has been altered to have more and more gluten, and why this could be problematic. This first half merits all five stars. I will buy this book just for the first half. The second half, where how to go about living a gluten-free lifestyle is explained is ... okay. It's not the best and not the worst. Sometimes it is more geared toward nutrition than gluten-free, and sometimes it gets a little hung up on insisting on organic produce or filtered water or baked chips. But that's okay. I can get all of this from other books. What I can't get from other books is her well-done research.

    There is a lot of useful information in this book, and it would be useful for anyone who suspects they may have a sensitivity to gluten. Lieberman explains that gluten intolerance can be present without celiac disease, and that it causes many surprising symptoms.

This book is a good introduction to a gluten-free lifestyle and why one may be helpful for many different conditions. If you are already familiar with gluten sensitivity and gluten-free cooking, you might find it a bit basic, nonetheless it sums up most of the current information on gluten sensitivities and celiac disease. Before I read this book, I did not know that animals had gluten intolerance, or that it had been studied. Years ago, I removed the grain from my cat's diet and found that it fixed her vomiting issue, but I didn't know there was any information on that condition. The recipes in this book are not very helpful to someone who is intolerant to pretty much all grains, like I am. I also did not like the book's suggestion that people take enzymes in order to digest beans and other legumes, when these often cause problems almost as bad as those from gluten, and some people should not eat them.

    Since Dr. Scot Lewey told me that I have celiac disease I purchased a few books on this but they don't help me that much as I am addicted to gluten per Dr. Lewey. It might be the reason I have very dark circles under my eyes. It says that one percent of those with CFS have celiac. It might be the reason I am so tired all the time and have MCTD. As soon as I ate quinoa and then aramanth I promptly got allergic to them per blood work. I just learned that aramanth is related to pigweed.

I am horribly allergic to pigweed so all these things maybe be connected. Its all depressing and this book is only a little bit helpful. I think The New Arthritis Breakthough is the biggest help.

I have started a gluten-free plan, and it helped to read a resource that connected them, as well as connecting many other health symptoms to gluten.

    This is a great introduction to gluten for someone beginning their research in the possibility of being gluten sensitive. Some reviews say it's too anecdotal, but it's meant to be that way to give a few examples of how gluten sensitivity can affect a wide range of people and diseases. This was an eye opening book for me since I knew nothing about gluten and gluten sensitivity before hand.

    Pretty valuable info about gluten and its affect on all sorts of health issues. The author is quite biased though. If you didn't do any other research, you'd conclude that gluten is the source of all evil. Either way, a very solid resource for someone who is GF or wants to know more about how it can affect the body. Especially useful info on testing and the differences between celiac disease and gluten sensitivity. Pretty valuable info about gluten and its affect on all sorts of health issues.

    The beginning of this book is very good and appeared to be a book that would give a lot of wonderful information about gluten-free living. Instead, it turned mostly into a book with case studies instead of information that could be more beneficial for a person with a gluten intolerance. Truthfully, this book would have received a better rating from me if it were half its current length. Too much filler for my liking.

    GREAT resource book that really details all the connections between gluten-sensitivity and a whole host of health issues. Also discusses in detail how many people have gluten-sensitivity but who do not yet have celiac disease as well as the testing shortfalls and how new technology is coming into use for testing the early sensitivity. A few recipes and web resources but since this book was published in 2007 much has changed for the better in GF eating.

    Shari Lieberman, clinical nutritionist, discusses how gluten sensitivity may be the root cause of many chronic conditions. Although this book is a little outdated, it is worth a read if you are on the fence about trying a gluten-free diet to relieve Chronic Fatigue or Fibromyalgia. A 14-day gluten-free sample diet is included, along with recipes and lists of websites to obtain further information

    This book is c2007 but it still contains some very good information. The author believe that we ALL are at least a little sensitive to gluten. And, of course, she explains Celiac disease in some detail. For diagnosis, she is a big believer in stool testing for antibodies, in addition to the standard blood test and biopsy. Some sample menus, recipes, and shopping tips also included.

    Interesting, seemingly data driven look at gluten as a possible root cause for many ailments. But it falls just short of compelling. The recipes in the back of the book seem uninspired and perfunctory for the most part. It all boils down to, if you have one of the diseases discussed, give gluten-free a shot and see if it helps your symptoms.

    Very, very helpful in this confusing gluten intolerance territory. There is a ton of research that went into this book, she gives all the resources and citations if you want to do further review. She clearly explains the difference between a wheat allergy, gluten intolerance/sensitivity and Celiac Disease. I highly recommend it to anyone who suspects that gluten is a problem for them.

    This felt like reading done sort of readers digest clue all medical books, I want some practical advice about getting tested for this of just avoiding gluten in general . After all, a girl doesn't give up her gluten beer lightly, compared to the other special diet books I've read, this was hard to follow and seemed yo depend on the person dojng research themselves.

    Sad to HAVE to read this book. But, it helped clear up a lot of questions. Really cool recipe to make dairy free cream cheese. . .does it still get the name of Cream Cheese if it is dairy free?? hmmmm

    This is a great book to read if you have celiac or a gluten intolerance. This book has more of a medical take than other books I have read on this subject. It is more about the actual disease, than how to live a gluten free lifestyle.

    Excellent book on the dangers of eating gluten. Discusses many diseases, their possible connection to gluten and how the elimination of gluten from the diet has in many cases, eliminated or minimized, the incidence of the disease.

    This book was very enlightening and helpful. It convinced me to try a gluten free diet. We'll see if it helps me. Too bad most US doctors haven't made the connection yet.

    Quick read with lots of very good information. As some other reviewers have noted, some of the info is a bit dated, but it doesn't interfere with the quality of the book.
