The shortcomings of traditional medicine often block a patient’s path to better health. Sometimes even medical professionals cannot uncover the truth because of endless red tape and road blocks. Many patients and doctors become discouraged and give up. Dr. Alessio Fassano, thankfully, is not one of them.
After moving to Baltimore from Naples, Italy in 1993, Dr. Fassano worked tirelessly on issues of digestive health. As the Director of the Center for Celiac Research and Mucosal Biology Research Center at the University of Maryland, Dr. Fassano and his research team proved that gluten contributes to autoimmune disorders such as Type I diabetes, thyroid disease, Sjorgen's syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, collagen vascular disease and liver disease.
Despite the fact that Dr. Fassano unequivocally proved the connection between gluten and autoimmune disorders, many medical professionals ignore or are unaware of gluten intolerances and celiacs disease. If you or a loved one is experiencing pain or discomfort, do not give in. There are medical professionals who are willing and able to help you.
