Hi, my name is Charlotte Skiles. I'm a nutrition consultant and clinical herbalist with Eden Peace Wellness Consulting, located in Austin, Texas, and today I'm going to talk to you about how to do a gluten free diet. So I happen to be gluten free, so this is a very intimate and relevant conversation to me. So, how I do a gluten free diet is that I avoid grains altogether. And the decision there on my part, and it's also what I recommend to many of my Celiac and gluten free clients, is that, when the body doesn't tolerate gluten well--which, gluten is found in wheat, rye, and barley, and oats--it typically doesn't metabolize other grains very well, and there can also be a lot of cross-contamination in terms of production, so I've just found through experience that in order for the GI to heal and perform it's best when this sort of sensitivity has been going on for a while, eliminating all grains from the diet serves best. Now, brown rice can be well tolerated for some people in small amounts. That's just up to the individual to figure out. But, basically, that's how you do a gluten free diet, is that you avoid gluten, wheat, rye, barley, and oats, and in additional to that I would just recommend avoiding all grains and see how your health improves.
