Certified Gluten Practitioner Program

Certified Gluten Practitioner Program

Presented by Thomas O’ Bryan, DC, CCN, DACBN

Dr O’ Bryan will show you how to identify, prevent and regenerate from Gluten-Related Disorders and Autoimmune Diseases by combining the current science from medical and nutritional research.

We are in the middle of a burgeoning health care crisis. A substantial portion of this relates to the growing epidemic of gluten-related disorders and auto-immunity.

The Certified Gluten Practitioner (CGP) Program presents an in-depth understanding of the causes of non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) and celiac disease (CD), and also looks at the root causes of Autoimmune Disease diagnosis to give you the knowledge to identify, support, and educate your clients no matter what symptoms they present with.

Course Topics include:

  • Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity is between six-fold and thirty-fold more prevalent than Celiac Disease. Learn the tools straight from the medical research that you need to know in order to prevent chronic illness.

  • Celiac disease is one of the most common chronic diseases in both Europe and the US, and severely under-diagnosed due to its diverse range of extra-intestinal manifestations. Become knowledgeable on the tests that help identify this issue now as opposed to later!

  • Learn about gluten sensitivity symptoms outside of the GI tract; the three “ingredients” necessary for autoimmune disease; systemic inflammation; biology of leaky gut; how to choose the appropriate diet for your clients and more.

  • Revolutionize your practice and change the lives of your clients and expand your professional exposure by becoming a Certified Gluten Practitioner!

  • After completing this certification you will be placed on our Professional Referral Directory where clients can locate you that visit theDr.com website and fan page on FB. We advertise you to our visitors and followers.

  • You will also become a part of our Professional Referral Directory where we will work with our partners who are looking for Certified Gluten Practioners to place in their Integrative Clinics.

This will impact your practice in several ways:

  • Get to the core issues with your clients and increase your results, which indirectly can change your client’s compliance and retention.

  • Brand yourself as an expert in Gluten-Related Disorders and increase referrals.

  • Further develop your expertise to help more people, develop your practice, and deepen your personal and professional goals in ways that are not being taught anywhere else.
