Summary:
Preeminent clinical nutritionist Dr. Shari Lieberman presents her 14-day program for treating and reversing gluten sensitivity, a condition that may affect as much as 35 to 50 percent of the U.S. population and is a major contributing factor to an array of chronic illnesses. Dr. Lieberman has been investigating gluten sensitivity for more than 20 years. In her experience, eliminating gluten, a protein in certain grains, 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. 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.--From publisher description.
