    Receiving a celiac disease diagnosis or being told you need to be on a gluten-free diet can be an overwhelming experience, and it is certainly not for the faint of heart. Most people get frustrated with the transition, and many don't know where to begin.


    Beyond Celiac Disease

    The chilling news is that gluten-harm reaches far beyond the concept of celiac disease.  Gluten has now been recognized to cause a widespread spectrum of illness, over and above celiac disease. The two questions to answer in this context are:

    • How many other diseases does gluten cause?
    • How many people are adversely affected by gluten over their lifetime?

    Clearing up meaning and naming differences between non-celiac and/or celiac gluten sensitivity.


    Celiac Disease Head to Toe

    In its ability to affect virtually any part of the body, gluten intolerance in the form of celiac disease is a major driver of health care delivery and associated costs. This short article covers the body's potential responses to gluten from head to toe, literally.

    A proactive guide to improving overall gut health. I would hate to add up all the hundreds of dollars I have wasted trying to get healthy.  Now, however, I get healthy by focusing on one thing:  making my intestines healthy.  If my intestines are healthy, I can absorb food.  If I can absorb food, my body will be receiving the nutrition it needs to function, and thus I will be healthy.

    Gluten sensitivity and celiac disease have long been seen as a gut disease. Unfortunately, this has resulted in a variety of erroneous medical perceptions, leading to limited and distorted perspectives on the impact of gluten on human health. After a battle of more than 50 years, celiac disease is now widely recognized both in and out of the medical profession, as common and treatable only with a gluten-free diet.

    The Gluten Syndrome refers to the cluster of symptoms that you experience if you react to gluten.  Gluten can affect your gut, your skin, and your brain.  It applies to any reaction that is caused by gluten.  It includes celiac disease, along with the myriad symptoms that can be experienced throughout your gastro-intestinal tract in response to gluten.  It also includes many other symptoms that do not stem from your gut.  These include brain and behavior disorders, irritability and tiredness, skin problems, muscular aches and pains and joint problems.
