Mental Health and Celiac Disease

If you’ve ever lived with undiagnosed Celiac Disease – chances are you’ve been to a psychologist at one time or another.  Perhaps your doctor told you that you had severe depression, bi-polar disorder, anxiety, or simply that it was “all in your head.” Believe me – I’ve been there, done that.

Good Nutrition: It’s What You Eat AND Absorb

“You are what you eat.” We teach children this common thinking almost from the time they can speak. It makes sense. The food that you put in your mouth, chew and swallow becomes the person you are. Most people believe it. So do most doctors. Well, it may sound logical but it is only partially correct and based on a ...
