Gluten Free Society's goal is to help educate the world about the TRUE gluten free diet. We strive to provide information to help people maintain a healthy gluten free lifestyle. Dr. Peter Osborne is dedicated to bringing the most up to date and scientific analysis of gluten and the gluten free diet.
Part of the mission at Gluten Free Society is to help those trying to live a healthy gluten free lifestyle find nutritional supplements that are safe and effective. It is no secret that years of gluten exposure can damage the gastrointestinal tract leading to malabsorption of nutrients. It is also extremely common for those with gluten issues to have vitamin and mineral deficiencies. These are some of the biggest reasons why I developed a full line of premium, gluten free supplements. A line you can trust, for yourself, your family, and your loved ones. You can browse our supplement store here. If you don’t see a product you need, don’t hesitate to reach out to us in the comments ...
The Connection Between Coffee & Autoimmune Disease
83% of adults in the US consume coffee. That number comes pretty close to the estimated 46 plus million people with autoimmune disease. So the big question is – Does coffee cause or contribute to autoimmune disease? Recent research shows that several forms of autoimmune disease are linked to coffee consumption. But the truth of the matter is, it’s not just the coffee. It is how it’s made, how it’s grown, how it’s served, what it is served in, and how much of it you choose to drink. I know…it’s never a simple black and white answer.
Does coffee cause autoimmune disease? Let’s dive into the basics on the topic:
How Can You Tell if There is Gluten In Your Medicine?
Seems like gluten is everywhere! But is gluten in your medication? There might be. Gluten is a common filler in many prescription and over the counter medications. A recent research report found that almost 20% of medicine contained gluten. The study also found that the inactive ingredients in drugs contained sugar, dairy, and food dyes. Researchers are worried about the potential for drug reactions based on this new information.

The battle against cholesterol has been largely fruitless… And even more disturbing are the side effects linked to cholesterol lowering medicines. I have personally seen people develop nerve damage, muscle damage, autoimmune problems, and dementia because of these medicines. Mainstream medicine has been aggressively lowering cholesterol for more than 40 years, yet heart disease continues to increase. Why? Check this out and share it with someone you know who is being poisoned by statins.

This is a question that is often ignored by much of the medical community. The diagnosis of autoimmunity is given on a regular basis, but doctors often fail to discuss the root cause of these conditions. The traditional treatment for most autoimmune problems is to treat the symptoms with medications. For example, in painful inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, doctors give medicines that suppress inflammation and the immune system. And although these medicines can be helpful in reducing symptoms, they do not resolve what causes autoimmune disease in the first place.
In the following special presentation, Dr. Osborne breaks down the known mechanisms and causes of AID.

Autoimmune Disease – Symptoms of the “Hidden Epidemic”
An estimated 50 million people in the US alone have some form of autoimmunity. For many, the symptoms of autoimmune disease are not always textbook. They can start small, last for years, and subtly grow into major health issues. Because they don’t always follow a clear path, many people go to the doctor with a plethora of vague problems that don’t quite match what the doctor was taught in medical school.
Another problem surrounding autoimmune illness is that medical training to understand how autoimmune symptoms can cross over to multiple organs and systems is not emphasized. Medical experts typically hyper specialize in either one organ, or one system; therefor, ...
