Course Description

Gluten, the main protein in wheat, has been implicated in many health problems. Modern Wheat is a Brand Spankin' New food that our bodies can't process very well (some having more trouble than others).

This is Part Two of the "Get Out of the Gluten Glut" series of courses. It covers how to adopt a gluten-free lifestyle, how to get tested for Celiac/Gluten Sensitivity, how to face and avoid common challenges & pitfalls and special considerations for the very sensitive. Lecture notes include recipes and food guides. (Please check out Part One and Part Three, as well!)

12 lectures, most fewer than 5 minutes long, answer the following questions, and more! (Each lecture is accompanied by a fill-in-the-blank worksheet that can be completed during or after the lecture.)

  • What tests are available for Celiac/Gluten Sensitivity & which are best?
  • How do I do an elimination diet?
  • What foods contain gluten?
  • How do I deal with Wheat Withdrawal?
  • How do I survive in the gluten-full world?
  • How strict do I need to be with my gluten-free diet?
  • How does wheat affect blood sugar?
  • What special considerations do I need to make if I'm very sensitive?
  • What athletes and celebrities are on a gluten-free diet?

The new "trend" of gluten-free eating is not a trend at all! It's an important precaution against developing a chronic health condition or dangerous disease.

Damage done by gluten can happen slowly over time so it might be confused with “normal aging”. But, the damage can be stopped... and can often be reversed!

The material is not overly scientific- just enough to get the gist. And I tried to make it fun with animations and strong visuals.

The two well-known conditions caused by wheat, Gluten Intolerance and Celiac Disease, have a frustratingly enormous variety of potential symptoms!

What Are the Students Saying? The following are comments about Part One of Get Out of the Gluten Glut:

  • "So easy to follow! I love Anne Buzzelli's way of instructing. She makes everything very easy to visualize and makes me laugh. I had so much fun learning about gluten: how often can you say that?" ~JB
  • Great presentation: I was so impressed by this course, primarily because it presented the science in an easy to understand way but did not talk down to the viewer. It was a high quality production and very enjoyable to watch. The length was perfect, I think because it was so well organized. An hour well spent in search of better health.” ~AC
  • “Explains why gluten can be dangerous: I found the information to be enlightening. It was concise, and it explained to me why Gluten or Gliadin could be a contributing factor to my health woes. I don't think it's too much to ask of us that are suffering from major health problems to go gluten free. Is your health not worth that much?” ~LH
  • Science made simple!: Since going gluten free is trendy these days, up your cocktail party ante with REAL SCIENTIFIC knowledge about why you don't indulge gluten. After watching this series, you will have your reasons - less likely to die an inflamed death, for example. Anne Buzzelli doesn't mince words but eases you into the shocking truth with clever graphics and saucy time travel. I highly recommend this series for the gluten-curious.” ~K
  • “Entertaining and Informative! Worth taking the course: The instructor, Anne, presents the adverse effect of modern wheat in a unique way that captures your attention. The music, videos and cool animations are amazing as well! These lectures are not boring like traditional ppt slideshows. I was shocked to find that the food that I consider healthy, like wholegrain bread, are killing me! Thanks Anne for sharing your knowledge and making us aware of the side-effects of gluten.” ~AP
  • “Excellent course!: Anne provides a very thorough yet entertaining history of the wheat - from the beginning when hunter gatherers started consuming wheat to our current food system. This course also does an excellent job explaining the negative health effects of today's wheat. This is a great course for healthcare professionals as well as anyone trying to get healthy!” ~MW
  • Informative and fun!: This course is fantastic, evidence based, and interesting! She even held my 5-year-old's attention! :)” ~P
  • “Nice efforts: I find this course interesting. Some of the terms were bit technical to me but to summarize, genetically modified food have negative impact on human body and require more research to find alternative technology to overcome negative impact on human body.” ~VJ
  • “Awesome: An excellent, easy to understand, explanation of Wheat and its dangers.” ~PT
