No Grain, No Pain The Book

FOCUS ON HEALTH | By Dr. Peter Osborne –

This year, I wrote a book titled No Grain, No Pain. This book is the culmination of my 15 years of research and clinical experience into the realm of the gluten free world. My journey began in the VA hospital after seeing patient after patient suffer with chronic autoimmune pain syndromes. Rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, ankylosing spondylitis, migraine headaches, hypothyroid disease and fibromyalgia were some of the most common diseases that came through the doors. Unfortunately, the standard of care in the hospital was to supply pain medications that did more harm than good.

The patients rarely got any better, because the pain medications came with some pretty hefty side effects including gut damage, vitamin and mineral deficiency, hormone disruption, immune suppression, fatigue, liver damage – the list goes on and on. When I asked if we could apply some fundamental nutrition with these patients, I was told that nutrition had nothing to do with disease.

I left the hospital and started my own practice. One of my very first patients was a young girl with a debilitating, painful joint disease called juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Her case was so bad that doctors didn’t know if she would make it. Her mother was told to prepare for her death within the next six months. Because of this, the Make-A-Wish Foundation stepped in and granted her and her family a wish.

Her condition racked her body with headaches, muscle pain, joint pain, indigestion and stomach pain. She had been suffering since her introduction to normal foods at 20 months of age. She was in and out of the hospital so frequently that she had to have a permanent stent placed in her arm so when she was hospitalized, it would be easier to give her an IV.

Imagine going through years of hospital trips, doctors visits and horrible pain all before the age of 10. This was the young girl’s story until her mother brought her into my office. After an extensive exam and laboratory testing, she was found to have non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

After the no grain, no pain approach, she became pain free and very much alive. She no longer has a plastic stent in her arm. She is growing normally. She doesn’t need to take pain medications to treat her symptoms. She is active in volleyball and has a new lease on life. She is alive and pain free today because she is grain free.

No Grain, No Pain

This is the reason I decided to write the book No Grain, No Pain. Pain is number one reason people visit the doctor. It is the number one reason for lost workdays, the number one reason that prescription drugs are dispensed. Because doctors don’t study nutrition in medical school, it is very rare that patients are informed that the food they eat can play a huge role in painful conditions. Food can either help control inflammation and provide the fundamental building blocks for healing, or it can cause inflammation leading to chronic and painful conditions.

The story above is only one of thousands of different patient stories who have been able to eliminate their pain and inflammation through the power of the No Grain, No Pain diet and my functional medicine protocols. This new book will allow me to share this lifesaving information with the world. Look for No Grain, No Pain on bookstore shelves or order your copy at
