If you’ve answered YES to one or more of the questions above then this event is for YOU!


A Celiac Disease and Gluten Sensitivity Update

Celiac Disease is the most underdiagnosed disease in North America today, with an incredibly low 3% diagnosis rate. This has led to the metaphor that diagnosed celiacs represent only the visible tip of a much larger undiagnosed “iceberg”. In fact, the average length of time it takes for a symptomatic person to be diagnosed with celiac disease in North America is 11 years, compared to only 3 weeks in Italy! Some of the more common diagnoses patients receive before obtaining the correct celiac assessment include irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, anemia, anxiety, and depression.

Join Rich Ralph RHN, holistic nutritionist and featured speaker Dr. Arjuna Veeravagu, naturopathic physician, for a journey into the world of celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

At this month’s meeting we will review the most current research on diagnosis and treatment of celiac disease. We will explore the history of celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, current celiac screening and diagnosis, new lab tests to screen for non-celiac gluten sensitivity and the many signs, symptoms and illnesses potentially triggered by gluten ingestion.

Bring your questions! The 90min talk will be followed by a 30min Q&A session.

Featured Speaker:

Dr. Arjuna Veeravagu is a naturopathic physician, registered acupuncturist and founder of Sage Clinic in Yaletown. He has studied the work of several CD and gluten sensitivity experts, including Kenneth Fine MD and James Braly MD. Dr. Veeravagu offers the new screening tests for gluten sensitivity in his practice at Sage Clinic. More information about Dr. Veeravagu and Sage Clinic can be found at www.sageclinic.com.
