Dr. Thom Rogers, ND, a practicing Naturopathic physician in Corvallis with 15 years’ experience in the field, will be presenting at the next Corvallis Gluten Free Support Group meeting June 6th from 10-noon at the Presbyterian Church on 10th and Monroe.
His presentation will be on the link between Celiac disease / Gluten Sensitivity and Adrenal Fatigue. Many people who suffer gluten intolerance also develop some level of Adrenal Fatigue. The adrenal glands are essential endocrine glands that sit atop of the kidneys and perform a myriad of vital functions in the body including regulation of circadian rhythms, energy production, blood sugar regulation, immune system regulation, and governing proper stress responses. People with Celiac disease or Gluten sensitivity often develop problems with fatigue, frequent Infections, cold intolerance in extremities, stress intolerance, sleep disorders, carbohydrate craving and intolerance or hypoglycemia. All of these are potential telltale signs of Adrenal Dysfunction. Dr. Rogers will talk about what it is, how it is connected to Celiac/ Gluten Intolerance, how it is diagnosed and approaches to treatment.
Dr. Rogers has served on the faculty of Bastyr University. Since he started his career in Naturopathic Medicine, he has been seeing patients with food allergies and intolerances including Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.
