Gluten… It’s such a buzz word right now, yet very few people understand what gluten actually is, and how it impacts your health – both negatively and positively!

Today I dive into the effects of gluten on your fertility and ability to conceive – and answer the question: should you avoid gluten entirely to optimise your health and fertility?

I discuss:

  • The difference between coeliac disease and gluten intolerance
  • Whether reducing gluten in your diet can improve your chances of conceiving
  •  Why you might feel better after reducing gluten in your diet
  • The health risks of going gluten free
  • And who should consider going gluten-free to help manage symptoms of specific health conditions and support fertility.

There’s a whole lot of myth-busting and useful info for anyone trying to conceive or considering going gluten-free!
