Whitney Morgan, founder of Morgan Nutrition and creator of the Gluten Gauntlet System, is a gluten-free warrior and fierce functional health coach. She helps women repair the damage that years of gluten exposure have done to their health. 

In almost a decade of working with gluten-sensitive and celiac clients, Whitney's seen first-hand that reversing, and even healing, your gluten-related disorder requires much more than just going gluten-free. As Whitney likes to say, "going gluten-free is like putting out the fire when your house is burning down. It's the obvious first step, but you're left with a crap-load of damage when the smoke clears."

In addition to her role as the guru of all-things-gluten, Whitney spends much of her professional time advising other health coaches and functional medicine practitioners how to deal with complex client cases. Whitney's not-so-secret obsessions are puppies, politics, and true-crime.
