The one condition that accounts for almost half of the patients who seek out gastroenterologists is IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Many celiacs suffer from this ailment. IBS is a ‘functional’ disorder, meaning that there is no damage to the digestive tract. Only the bowel’s function, not its structure, is disturbed.

Every year, life seems to get more hectic. There is never enough time to get the things done on the ever-growing “to-do” list, let alone find time to relax.

The traditional food pyramid of the past shows breads, pasta, rice, cereals (all high in carbohydrates) at the base of the pyramid, the ‘staple’ of the diet.

You read up on baking breads; you spend money to buy the ingredients; you take the time to prepare the mixture, then you put your creation in the oven.
What was your first reaction when your doctor told you that anything containing gluten had to be eliminated from your diet? After you stopped screaming, “But I HAVE to have my pizza!” did you begin to panic? Know this—there is almost NOTHING that you used to eat before being diagnosed that you cannot eat now; you just have to learn to make it a little differently.
