Scary statistic discussed in Living gluten and wheat free presentation last night

scary statistics

The statistics below come from a  study done with close to 30,000 patients from 1969-2008   where they also examined deaths in three groups.

Those with full-blown Celiac Disease, those with inflammation of their intestine but not full-blown Celiac Disease, and those with latent Celiac Disease or Gluten sensitivity (elevated gluten antibodies but negative intestinal biopsy).

*Dramatic Findings:

39% increased risk of death in those with Celiac Disease.

72% increased risk in those with gut inflammation related to gluten

35% increased risk in those with gluten sensitivity but no Celiac Disease.

This was ground breaking research that proves you don’t hav e to have full-blow Celiac DIsease with a positive intesetinal biopsy to have serious health problems and complications-even death- from eating gluten.

*Journal of American Medical Association

Statistics like this set my passion on fire to pass on information about the damage gluten and wheat can do. Thanks to all who participated in last nights online presentation.  Looking forward to next month’s presentation, February, 13th.

Live presentation

“Living gluten & wheat free- first steps” was presented at Nutrition S’Mart in Pt. St. Lucie, Fl on Saturday. I began the presentation with asking everyone to state  in a few words why they came to this presentation.  All the areas of concern were addressed in my Powerpoint, it was so cool.  Inflammation, weight gain, bad stomach pains, lack of energy, and cravings for gluten and wheat products. There were more but those were some of the most common.

It was so rewarding to be able to have  information for people who have been struggling with irritating to life threatening symptoms with no answers as to what the cause may be. The group supported each other because they could identify with each other and their symptoms. There was a sense of relief that by taking gluten & wheat out of their diets they may be able to lose weight, bring down the inflammation, have symptoms disappear without taking medication just getting creative with their eating choices and taking high quality supplements to heal their bodies. 

The links and books I recommended with recipes and information were greatly appreciated. 

The group understood that if they were ready to give up instant gratification they may be free long-term of annoying aches and pains. They also grasped that healing their bodies was a necessity.  Explaining that I had done years of research before I decided on a high quality brand of vitamins that are gluten & wheat free, and manufactured by  a research and science company that has been a leader in the industry for over 54 years,   gave them reassurance that they did not have to spend time doing the research. They also loved the support and guidance I offer. 

We had a great time. After my presentation we moved to the other end of the store for a gluten & wheat free cooking class. We learned 2 simple recipes: Teff Banana Pancakes and Gluten free tabouli. Go to www..nutritionsmart.com for the recipes. 

Suzie Presenting "Living gluten & wheat free -First Steps"

Suspicious how gluten and wheat are hurting you?

Last night was the unveiling of my new presentation, “Living gluten and wheat free – First steps”.

When I first accepted how gluten & wheat was devastating my system I looked for guidance on where to start. I had aligned myself with a nurse practitioner who believed in helping the body heal itself through good nutrition, supplements, and clean air. She was very helpful designing a supplement program for me to heal my gut, build my immune system and clear up my skin.  With positive changes occurring as I got off the gluten and wheat, using the program she had me on my moods and energy also  improved dramatically. 

Those are all areas I touch on in the presentation. I love being a resource and guide for people as they are maneuvering through the gluten-free world. 

As I was writing the presentation I stumbled on information I did not know.  Like, in people with first-degree symptoms who are celiac(parent,child,sibling) 1 in 56.

In people with second-degree relatives(aunt,uncle,cousin)who are celiac: 1 in 39.

Celiac disease affects at least 3 million Americans. *The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center.

A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed:

39% increased risk of death in those with Celiac Disease

72% increased risk in those with gut inflammation related to gluten.

35% increased risk in those with gluten sensitivity but no Celiac Disease.

I am hoping that other people will learn new facts about how Celiac and gluten sensitivity affects large numbers of people, the seriousness of the issue and the simple cure, get off gluten and wheat, start healing your body, and get support.
