Event Description

Course Information

Autoimmune diseases are listed as the third leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the industrialized world. That means it’s in our offices every day. The number of people diagnosed with an autoimmune disease is increasing exponentially in the world today. Estimates are that anywhere from 3 to 7 out of every 10 new patients coming into your office are suffering with an autoimmune mechanism (whether it has progressed into an autoimmune pathology or not). The volume of information now of the underlying mechanisms that set the stage and contribute to the development of autoimmune disease is overwhelming.

Without recognizing and addressing the underlying mechanisms triggering the presenting complaints, the Practitioner may be proverbially ‘chasing the tail’ of the pathology with temporary symptom relief.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Attendees will be able to identify 6 mechanisms by which food-related disorders may impact on the development of autoimmune disease
  • Attendees will recognize the potential contribution of the microbiota on the development of autoimmune disease
  • Attendees will learn the role of barrier integrity in the development of autoimmune disease with examples from the literature ranging from conjunctival tumors to Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Attendees will learn the potential neurological impact of maternal IgG antibodies on offspring tissue development
  • Attendees will learn the clinical applications of treatment protocols for food-related neurological disorders

Course Instructor

When it comes to getting healthy, Dr. Tom O’Bryan’s goal for you is ‘Making It Easy to Do the Right Thing’. As an internationally-recognized, admired and compassionate speaker focusing on food sensitivities, environmental toxins, and the development of autoimmune diseases, Dr. Tom’s audiences discover that it is through a clear understanding of how you got to where you are, that you and your doctor. can figure out what it will take to get you well.

In November 2016, Dr. O’Bryan released Betrayal: The Autoimmune Disease Solution They’re Not Telling You, an investigation into why our immune system, designed to protect us, begins attacking our own tissue (autoimmunity). Currently, over 500,000 people worldwide have watched the Docuseries www.betrayaldocumentary.com.

Dr. O’Bryan is considered a ‘Sherlock Holmes’ for chronic disease and teaches that recognizing and addressing the underlying mechanisms that activate an immune response is the map to the highway towards better health. He holds teaching Faculty positions with the Institute for Functional Medicine and the National University of Health Sciences. He has trained and certified tens of thousands of practitioners around the world in advanced understanding of the impact of wheat sensitivity and the development of individual autoimmune diseases.

He is the founder of www.theDr.com and the visionary behind The Gluten Summit – A Grain of Truth, bringing together 29 of the world’s experts on the gluten connection to diseases, disorders, and a wide-range of symptoms and ages. You can find this info at www.theglutensummit.com.

His 2016 ground-breaking book, winner of the National Book Award and ranked #1 in several categories on Amazon.com, ‘The Autoimmune Fix’ outlines the step-by-step development of degenerative diseases and gives the tools to identify our dis-ease process years before the symptoms are obvious and how to turn your health around, one step at a time.
