Nutritional Therapy at the ForgeAt the Forge, we are always learning. Today, our nutritionist Julie Deeks is attending “Cyrex – The Auto-Immune X Factor.” This is an event launching Cyrex, a new gluten sensitivity test. At this event, Julie will be learning how and when to use this test and what benefits it will bring to the clinic and her patients.

Julie also recently attended an evening workshop on Auto-Immunity, held at the Royal Society of Medicine. The evening looked at case studies where significant changes in their health status had been achieved using nutritional therapy.

Julie attends workshops and events to improve her knowledge and gain insightful information to help her patients reach their health goals. All of our practitioners attend lectures and read current medical journals in order to be kept informed on developments in their field. In an area such as nutritional therapy, where discoveries about the human genome are being made all the time, it’s particularly important for Julie that she stays up to date.

Over 15 journals have reported over the last 10 years that industrial countries around the world are seeing increased incidences of autoimmune and neuroimmune disorders. Therefore it is important to continue developing state of the art tools to assess and treat the problems caused by autoimmunity.

Autoimmune related disorders need targeted diagnosis and treatment, as they can be triggered by several factors, including:

  • Diet
  • Infections
  • Stress

David Perlmutter, author of best-seller Grain Brain says:

“The Cyrex Array 3 offers the most comprehensive analysis available for determining gluten sensitivity. this array has proven incredibly valuable in my practice and by providing in-depth information about an issue that has wide clinical implications.”

We look forward to hearing what Julie learned at the event and what this will bring to her clinical practice here at The Forge Clinic.
