Gluten-free Series

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 O’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.

And finally, she has a Q&A panel with a bunch of gluten-free bloggers offering advice and personal experiences. Check out each post Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.


I have been following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet since January 2008 to recover from Celiac disease. As part of the diet, I don't eat grains, sugar or potatoes and prepare all my meals from scratch.


  1. Thank you, Kat! Your timely post is much appreciated. I have been struggling to stay on track, despite what I know works for me. Thank you for putting up with me on Twitter, and I hope we can become better friends. 🙂
