As our food becomes increasingly processed and laden with pesticides and GMOs, the incidence of autoimmune disease is skyrocketing. At least 50 million Americans are currently living with some form of autoimmune disease – with some suffering from more than one. And, according to natural health experts like Dr. Peter Osborne, this is no coincidence.
Will Western medicine ever face reality? Dr. Osborne maintains that diet, and gluten intolerance in particular, is a “core cause” of over 90 different autoimmune diseases – which include such debilitating and life-threatening conditions as lupus, diabetes, hypothyroidism, multiple sclerosis, ulcerative colitis and rheumatoid arthritis. Conventionally-trained physicians constantly promote the notion that ‘there is no cure,’ and – to make matter worse – they prescribe immune-suppressing drugs that increase the risk of systemic infections.
Fact: We CAN eliminate the threat of autoimmune disorders safely and naturally. On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Dr. Peter Osborne, a board-certified nutritionist and renowned expert on gluten intolerance, explore the link between diet and autoimmune disease – and offer natural solutions that work. If you (or someone you love) is concerned about the true nature of disease and real solutions – don’t miss this lifesaving show!
Gluten damages the intestinal tract and promotes autoimmune disease
It’s important to understand that gluten is a general term for a group of proteins found in grains, particularly in wheat, rye and barley – but in many other food and non-food sources. The use of GMOs in food has caused gluten content to double over the past few decades, asserts Dr. Osborne. Tragically, as much as 40 percent of the population now reacts poorly to gluten – reflecting the inability of human DNA to adjust to the massive changes in food quality and content.
Gluten also increases a protein called zonulin, which is produced in the small intestine. Zonulin breaks down the proteins in the gut that are responsible for keeping the gut lining intact, thereby creating gaps through which undigested food and proteins enter the bloodstream – also causing an immune reaction.
This condition – known as “leaky gut” – or increased intestinal hyperpermeability is accompanied by an array of related symptoms, including inflammation, immune over-stimulation and poor absorption of nutrients.
Don’t be left in the dark about how to cure disease or become a statistic of the sick care system. Be sure to tune into the next NaturalNews Talk Hour for the help you want.

Go grain-free, not “gluten”- free
Even when people with gluten intolerance attempt to eat a gluten-free diet, health problems can still persist. This is because many “gluten-free” products are made with corn and rice, which – like all grains – still contain gluten proteins, says Dr. Osborne.
And, by the way, they can trigger the same type of immune response as gluten intolerance.
Even seeds and beans, which contain gluten-like proteins called lectins, can cause problems such as gastrointestinal inflammation and leaky gut. Dr. Osborne points out that all grains and legumes are technically seeds, created for the sole purpose of incubating and protecting the embryonic plant, and making them unfit for consumption. “Seeds,” says Dr. Osborne, “wage war on the human gut.”
Join us, on the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, to discover more about the role of gluten in autoimmune disease – along with how to reduce inflammation, how to ease chronic pain naturally, how to avoid the “prescription pain trap” plus much more.
