Yesterday, I tuned in to Dr. Tom O’Bryan of TheDr.Com talk about gluten. I thought I knew a lot about the dangers of gluten but he offered some nuggets of information and horrifying statistics that were new to me but gave me to recommit to a gluten-free lifestyle.

I thought you might like to know this information too. Here is a summary of Tom’s interview.

Have you ever noticed that some parents seem to be whizzes at getting their kids on board with whatever cool agenda they’re into?

Like those families where every kid plays a different instrument, and they all jam together in their spare time. Or the ones who participate in historical reenactments as a family and their children don’t hate them for it. Or… certain families whose kids happily turn down pizza in favor of paleo fare.

What’s the secret? Why do some kids accept their parents’ ‘crazy’ ideas as cool when other parents earn only withering glances for the merest suggestion?

6 Blisteringly Good Paleo Reasons to Get Hot, Sweaty and Naked

I have a sauna in my home.

When I say that, most people think I live in a palace, have a ton of land, marbled floors and a beautiful view. And while it is true I do have a beautiful view, otherwise I have a regular (and rather scruffy) house.

The fact is my sauna is in the garage. It came as a flatpack 5 years ago, took my husband and I two hours to assemble and has been used on an almost daily basis ever since.

I estimate each sweat session has cost us around 75 cents plus a few for electricity. It doesn’t owe us a thing.

Taken from Louise Hendon’s new e-book, 30-Minute Paleo Dessert Recipes: Simple Gluten-Free and Paleo Desserts for Improved Weight-Loss, this super simple recipe is so much more sophisticated than just eating it off the spoon. Plus it takes just a few minutes to prepare.

Butterflies. Aren’t they exquisite?

We are often found talking about the thyroid, also known as the butterfly gland because it is shaped as such.

If you think you have a thyroid problem, thoughts of it fill your days as you wrestle to get it fixed so you can. just. feel. better. already.

Yet, according to so many presenters at the Thyroid Sessions these past two weeks, it is the gut that is the root cause and real problem behind thyroid dysfunction.

Not the thyroid at all.

But guts are messy, ugly things. Even the word is horrid and ugly on the ear. It’s associated with poop, and bacteria and depression and pain. And, if you’re like me, fermented food (ugh).
