We will kick off the start of spring with Naturopath Allison Greenberg speaking specifically on gluten and the brain — an area of particular research interest to her. Dr. Greenberg will also briefly address gluten free labeling and other topics.


Allison Greenberg, ND Resident


Dr. Greenberg earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon. Her love for nature and intrigue with human physiology led her to the National College of Natural Medicine, where she received her doctorate in naturopathic medicine in 2013. As an officer in the Naturopathic Medical Student Association, she played an active role in organizing naturopathic student participation in the AANP’s annual lobbying event in Washington, DC each year. After completion of her naturopathic training, Dr. Greenberg was selected as the 2013 STAIR Integrative AANP Resident for Federal Way Naturopathy. Outside of her medical interests, she enjoys cooking, reading, and spending time with friends and family.


We are excited to hear Dr. Greenberg’s insights; meeting is complimentary, of course.


The Gluten Intolerance Group of South King County meets the 3rd Monday of the month, every month except December, July and August, at 6:30 p.m. on the 2nd floor of Marlene’s in Federal Way. It’s free! At most meetings, we have marvelous speakers, though sometimes we just talk, get to know each other, and exchange info and recipes. We also have arranged stimulating “field trips” to local restaurants and grocery stores that carry great gluten free sections. Occasionally we have GF goodies provided by merchants.

Marlene’s is just off the 320th exit of the I-5 freeway. If coming south on I-5, take the 320th exit, turn R at end of ramp, make fairly quick R into a complex with a Pier I and Black Angus. Stay to R and go around to the back; make a L into parking and look for Marlene’s, below.


If coming north on I-5, take the 320th exit, get in the 2nd LH turn lane so that when you turn L and go over the freeway you’ll be in position to make a R into the complex (follow above directions).


Marlene’s closes at 8 o’clock; so, if you want to shop (and there’s a rather large bulk section as well as two floors and a cafe), you’ll want to get there earlier, perhaps, though there is always time to buy items post-meeting.
