"To be or not to be...gluten free." Dr. Urvi Vyas answers all your gluten questions as she explores how gluten can negatively affect health and how to find out if you are gluten sensitive. A large body of research is correlating gluten to aggravating chronic pain, thyroid disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, attention deficit, and autism in addition to a diagnosis of Celiac Disease. Dr. Urvi P. Vyas received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis,Missouri in August 2003. She attended Ohio State University for undergraduate work in Biology and Microbiology and minored in Spanish. Dr. Vyas also completed her chiropractic preceptorship at Pain Management of Indianapolis, a multidisciplinary clinic, graduating on Dean’s List. Over the years, Dr. Vyas’ clinical practice experience includes spinal corrective care and rehab, wellness and prevention, family care, and brain based chiropractic/functional neurology. In addition, she has continued to fuel her passion for nutrition, through seminars, books, and research and has implemented evidence based clinical protocols to serve each patient’s individual needs. Science, research, and clinical results strongly correlate a variety of health problems to gluten sensitivity. In addition to gluten allergies and Celiac Disease, gluten intolerances are correlated with not only digestive disorders like irritable bowel syndrome, but chronic pain, thyroid disorders, attention deficit disorders, and even autism spectrum. Through her research, study, and experience, Dr. Vyas is passionate about educating the community about true health care and improving quality of life.

Meet health coach, gluten-free baker, and host of allergy free parties Page St. Clair. "Our life is a journey and along that journey we can run into some bumps. 8 years ago my "bump" was diagnosis of gluten intolerance. It threw me into a world I never knew about. I threw myself into learning as much as I could. I began helping people I ran into at the health food store and grocery store. That grew into a desire to teach people about how to live gluten free healthy. I know that living gluten free doesn't have to lack in anything. This lead me too begin classes at Integrative Nutrition and change my course from school teacher to health coach."
