 No Grain, No Pain with Dr. Peter Osborne No Grain, No Pain with Dr. Peter OsborneNo Grain, No Pain with Dr. Peter Osborne- More than 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain and, all too often, doctors turn to the same solution: painkilling drugs. But all of this medication simply isn’t helping, and as Dr. Peter Osborne, an authority on gluten sensitivity and food allergies has found, the real solution often lies in what you eat. In No Grain, No Pain, Dr. Osborne shows how grains wreak havoc on the body by causing tissue inflammation, creating vitamin and/or mineral deficiencies, and triggering an autoimmune response that causes the body to attack itself. But he also offers practical steps to find relief.

Using his drug-free, easy-to-implement plan, you will be able to eliminate all sources of gluten and gluten-like substances, and begin leading a healthier, happier life.
