Gluten is one ingredient we all love in bread or our favorite pizza dough, but it’s often the cause of inflammation and leaky gut, which is implicated in so many health conditions such as IBS, skin problems, Hashimoto’s, high blood pressure, and more. And it is not just people with celiac disease who are affected.
In today’s episode, I talk with Maggie Ward, Dr. Alessio Fasano, and Dr. George Papanicolaou about how gluten affects the gut and how to know if it’s a problem for you.
Maggie Ward, MS, RD, LDN, is the Nutrition Director at The UltraWellness Center. Maggie holds a master’s degree in Nutrition from Bastyr University, which focuses on using whole foods for holistic nutrition therapy. She completed her requirements to become a registered dietitian at Westchester Medical Center in New York. Prior to joining The UltraWellness Center team in 2008, Maggie worked at the Brooklyn Hospital Center in New York.
Advancing innovation in research, clinical care, and education, Alessio Fasano, MD, has dedicated his life to improving the quality of life for people with celiac disease and other gluten-related disorders. He founded the Center for Celiac Research at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in 1996. In 2013, he moved the center to Massachusetts General Hospital and renamed it the Center for Celiac Research and Treatment. He is chief of the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children and a professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School.
Dr. George Papanicolaou is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and is board certified in family medicine from Abington Memorial Hospital.
