The majority of Americans actually have a genetic predisposition for gluten intolerance, which can trigger and/or exacerbate many other conditions, especially related to autoimmunity. Let us help you find out if your health conditions are related to gluten intolerance.

Many people suffer quietly from a multitude of poor health issues and have no idea that gluten could be the cause. Essentially, when you consume gluten proteins found in wheat, barley and rye, your body reacts as though a foreign invader has entered and begins to attack. 

For those who suffer from Celiac Disease, the result of gluten consumption is a full autoimmune reaction that causes tremendous damage to the body.

Unfortunately for many, gluten is not identified as the cause of their symptoms, so they enter an endless cycle of chronic illness, misdiagnosis, harmful pharmaceuticals, and deteriorating health.

Symptoms of gluten intolerance or celiac may include:

  • abdominal cramping, pain and bloating
  • Depression / anxiety
  • headaches
  • constipation
  • diarrhea
  • joint pain
  • fatigue
  • itchy skin  / rashes (dermatitis herpetiformis)
  • struggles with weight gain
  • and many more.

Shockingly the majority of symptoms tend to be neurologic, not gastrointestinal, according to peer reviewed research.  In fact, for every single Celiac suffering from gut symptoms, 7 others may have strictly neurologic based presentations (headaches, fatigue, numbness/tingling, depression, etc).

Why don’t I feel better now that I’m off Gluten?  Sadly, 60% of patients studied one year post gluten removal still had no significant gut healing.  Meaning, you removed the main trigger, gluten, but still suffer symptoms?  This is most likely from continued autoimmune inflammation, infections, hormonal changes and nutrient deficiencies.  You heard that right, the majority of those diagnosed Celiac disease do not recover after gluten withdrawal!  This is why you should partner with Dr. Autoimmune to determine your root causes and customize a plan to calm the autoimmune process.    

Diagnosing celiac or gluten intolerance is something the Dr. Autoimmune team specializes in.  We also pride ourselves on helping those already diagnosed correct the hidden imbalances so their immune system can recover to optimal health.   We do a full range of testing and look at the entire body to see where the cause of your illness is originating. We use functional medicine to help our clients find relief and this approach, in conjunction with full dietary and nutritional counseling and guidance, helps our patients suffering from gluten intolerance find relief. This may incorporate an elimination, provocation dietary challenge, anti-inflammatory diet combined with targeted nutritional supplements and in house therapies which promote cellular healing.

Dr Ian helped me overcome many health problems. When I initially went to see him, I was suffering from hypo-thyroidism. With his help, I am no longer hypo-thyroid. Amazing Results! He is highly recommended!

Ian really knows A LOT about thyroid problems! His knowledge and confidence convinced me to make the lifestyle changes -including no gluten, no sugar, and more exercise-that are essential to healing hormonal imbalances and to staying well. Several months later, I feel stronger, more energetic, and am happier than I have felt in a long time. Many thanks for all your help!

Using adjustments, blood analysis, supplements, suggested diet and exercise, Dr. Hollaman has been able to recreate the proper function of my endocrine system and I feel like a new person! I’ve lost weight and feel good about myself again. I know that my health is better than it has been for many years and I am no longer taking thyroid supplementation.

I initially started seeing Dr Ian for intense tiredness, digestive problems, low thyroid and a slew of other symptoms. He has been so amazing in supporting me to continuously make improvements and the results have been incredible. I highly recommend him, he is intuitive, wise and a high integrity person that I respect and value!
