Check out the wonderful series Donielle at Naturally Knocked Up has going on this week about Celiac Disease and gluten sensitivity.
This podcast she did with Dr. Tom Oâ€™Bryan is really great. I particularly like how he focuses on the fact that avoiding gluten is not a sufficient treatment for Celiac. You must heal and rebuild the digestive system to restore health. That means not just replacing gluten in your current diet with gluten-free options, but reducing grains overall, eating healthy meats and vegetables, and avoiding any cross-sensitivities (gluten-free grains can still cause problems). It’s also surprising how wide-spread gluten sensitivity is, and the implications in other health problems most would think are unrelated. The podcast is on this page, just click the play button: http://www.naturallyknockedup.com/2010/09/07/silent-cause-of-infertility/
I’m also guest-posting for her today about transitioning to a gluten-free diet. Check out that post here: http://www.naturallyknockedup.com/2010/09/08/transition-to-gluten-free/.
She has some other wonderful guest posters on various gluten-free topics. Kristen talks about Gluten Free Beauty, Shirley talks about doing Gluten-free Easily and Cara talks about Gluten, Grains and Children with Developmental Issues.
