Thomas O’Bryan, DC, CCN, DACBN will be hosting an all day workshop on March 2nd, 2017 at the Hilton Vancouver Hotel.

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.

You’ll learn the foundation of gluten related and autoimmune disorders, how to properly test and assess them and most importantly, how to support your clients.

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.

This intro to the full course will include topics such as:

  • 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 it’s diverse range of extra-intestinal manifestations. Become knowledgeable on the tests that help identify this issue now as opposed to later!
