Introduction to gluten intolerance and celiac disease. My story briefly. Paradigm shift in my thought process regarding medical treatment and how I look at people differently. Brief history of how this happened in the US. What it takes to get better-a gluten free diet. Story about denial. How big is this REALLY? ‘Funny’ things docotrs have said about celiac disease. Differences between other countries and the US in finding people that are gluten intolerant.

Prior career as an emergency trauma nurse x 16 years. Almost successfully dead before I found out, by accident, I had gluten intolerance/ celiac disease. Spreading the word, breaking the silence and educating the masses so you don’t have to be almost dead before you find out a diet change could give you your health and your life back—-better than before.
