The Gluten Free Garage was thrilled to bring an exciting lineup of gluten-free experts and topics to the inaugural speaker series on Sunday April 28th (free with admission to the event!). Our fantastic five speakers covered a variety of topics related to healthy gluten-free living. If you missed the opportunity to see these speakers in person or if you want to hear them again, you are in luck!

Welcome to our final Tuesday Talks with the Gluten Free Garage! Each Tuesday for the past four weeks, we’ve brought you one of the audio presentations from our Spring 2013 GFG speaker series. (If you missed last week’s talk on raising happy, healthy, awesome gluten-free kids by Maggie Savage, click here.)

In this week’s finale, naturopathic doctor Jodi Larry explains how gluten might be affecting how you feel on a daily basis in her talk, DEMYSTIFYING GLUTEN. No longer is going gluten free just for people with celiac disease—there is a growing community of those who are gluten sensitive or gluten intolerant and they often suffer from such conditions as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), depression, inflammatory conditions, fatigue, skin ailments and more. Tune in to get the facts about gluten and learn about how changing your diet might just be the answer to your health problems.
