Tom Malterre is a leader in the field of Autoimmune, Celiac and Gut Health Community. He's a Certified Nutritionist with a tremendously deep knowledge of how food and the things that come along with it can have such a deep impact on our health.
He has over a decade of clinical experience working with nutrient deficiencies, chemical exposures, and the gut microbiome.
His knowledge of what gluten does to the human body makes him an invaluable resource when you need to be 100% gluten free. He understands that the damage done to the gut from gluten also needs to be dealt with.
This damage requires more work that just removing gluten. This is often a big reason why some people can’t get better when the only change they make is removing gluten. He shares his knowledge on what else can be done to heal and help you get to the point of wellness.
Tom received his Masters in Nutrition from Bastyr University, and has advanced training from the Institute for Functional Medicine and is a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner.
He has over a decade of clinical experience working with patients. Tom also lectures regularly for the Institute for Functional Medicine. He has lectured on nutrition and supplementation across the United States and Canada.
He currently coaches doctors and other health-care practitioners on Functional Medicine protocols while doing interviews and blogging on a vast array of health topics.
He has developed a book and a program called "The Elimination Diet." This can be extremely useful when going gluten free just isn’t enough to recover.
Tom's program is much more than just a plan to remove foods forever from your diet. Much of the reason foods bother people is because you have a damaged digestive system. Tom's Elimination Diet works to heal your body properly, which then allows you to reintroduce many of the foods that were removed during the healing phase.
This is an important distinction from many trendy elimination diets that people follow today. Too many people are left with far too restrictive diets, and still never get to the point of healing and wellness. This book walks you through the complete process for healing and wellness.
Tom Malterre’s Elimination Diet addresses this in a structured, researched, and individualized way.
Tom also shares his knowledge freely with the public, so they can gain the knowledge they can then use to heal themselves.
He understands what gluten does and what other things can be done that go a long way to getting better. He also understands how the body works from a Functional Medicine standpoint, which is to treat the whole person, and not just the symptoms.
He works with his wife, Alissa Segersten, who received her Bachelor's of Science in Nutrition from Bastyr University, and together they've also created 2 cookbooks, "The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook," and "Nourishing Meals" and have many recipes available on their various websites. Due to their deep knowledge of health, food and diet, these recipes truly are made to be healthy, and they show how and when specific foods are best used.
