Gluten: It’s not just about gastrointestinal symptoms anymore

Are you gluten-free, or simply considering eliminating gluten from your diet for personal reasons? Many people are cutting out wheat and other gluten-containing grains from their diets for more reasons than just gastrointestinal problems.

This Thursday, Dr. Hayes Mumma will present a 30-minute lecture in The Learning Center that will dive into the history of gluten and the various elements of gluten sensitivity. He will explain what happens when someone with gluten allergies consumes gluten, the genetics of gluten sensitivity, how to test for gluten allergies, as well as answer any questions.

Mumma has been practicing Functional Medicine with his wife, Dr. Kathy Mumma at Green Mountain Chiropractic in South Burlington for 11 years. He has achieved Diplomat status with the International College of Applied Kinesiology, and is a member of the American Chiropractic Association, Vermont Chiropractic Association, the International College of Applied Kinesiology and the Institute for Functional Medicine.
