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.

Monthly Gluten-free dinner meeting

We actually met at Panera Bread. Yes! They have gluten-free salads and will probably in the future have yummy gluten-free breads.  The meal was inexpensive and delicious. They have notebooks behind the counter with every ingredients. So, if you go to Panera Bread ask to see it. 

I have taken off a few pounds since I returned from Ireland and NYC. I stayed true to myself, treated myself well and stayed off the sugar and dairy. I have not had any gluten/wheat in over 5 years, that I don’t play with.  I have given up sugar and dairy in the past but not for long. This has been such a freedom.  My Shaklee protein shakes took the initial weigh off (close to 30 lbs.)stabilized my weight for 15 years, and was a savior for building lean muscle mass and keeping my blood sugar stable. Also the protein bars and food supplements have built my immune system so I don’t catch whatever virus is going around or struggle with bronchitis like I used to. 

It is good to change around our eating habits.  So I now eat lean, hormone free meat as my protein, lots of veggies and some fruit. That has been the clincher losing the weight these last few weeks. Good protein is key for keeping the cravings for sugar away. As I have said before I have been following the Paleo Diet and feel great. I think it is a step further into being gluten/free.

Join our call on Tuesday, August 3rd at 9pm ET. The topic is traveling and eating dinner at friends while living gluten/free.
