This Is Your Brain on Gluten

A No. 1 bestseller by a respected physician argues that gluten and carbohydrates are at the root of Alzheimer's disease, anxiety, depression, and ADHD. What to make of the controversial theory?

 

“If you could make just three simple changes in your life to prevent, or even reverse, memory loss and other brain disorders, wouldn’t you?”

So asks Dr. David Perlmutter, in promotion of his PBS special Brain Change, coming soon to your regional affiliate. Three changes. Simple ones. Wouldn’t you?

The 90-minute special is a companion to Perlmutter’s blockbuster book on how gluten and carbs are destroying our brains. In November it became a New York Times number one bestseller. Since its September release, as Perlmutter told me, “It’s never not been on the bestseller list, frankly.”

“Is it still number one?” I asked. A pause over the phone as he checked. In modern interview style, we were both also on our computers.

“As of next week it’s number six ... darn.”

The book is Grain Brain: The surprising truth about wheat, carbs, and sugar; your brain's silent killers. It promises straightforward dietary solutions to prevent the illnesses we most hate and fear.

Why wouldn’t you make three simple changes?

"Personally I decided to make these changes after being ill for over 12 years when no one could figure out why except to say I had such and such disease and gave me pills to fix it.  Unfortunately I continued to decline even after my holistic doctor did blood work and determined I was allergic to gluten/wheat and advised me to eliminate those foods from my diet.  I didn't listen and continued to become worse to the point of severe joint pain and finally memory loss towards 2008.  I could barely walk and could hardly drive myself.  In fact, if I had gone to an MD they would most likely have said I was in the early stages of dementia.  When my holistic doctor said I was going to die I hit rock bottom and decided to make the changes to my diet and start eliminating gluten and wheat!"  Sue Seward- Gluten Free Lady
