Humans have been eating bread for thousands of years. Like this meme says, it seems like gluten reactions are exploding. So, what is going on? Are more people reacting? Is it being better diagnosed? This video explains!
Doctors are missing over 95% of people with celiac disease – over 3 million in the United States. That’s more people than autism or Type 1 Diabetes, yet celiac disease receives a fraction of the funding of these diseases. Lives are being destroyed every day, when a simple change in diet could cure them. Let’s get the word out…
Finding out you have Celiac Disease is a big transition. Often it’s a good one that leads to feeling great, yet initially it’s a lot of information to take in at once to understand what you need to do for your health. Much of it is because we’re been eating one way for 15, 30, 50 or more years and it can be overwhelming to to instantly unlearn everything we’ve done and change overnight. Wouldn’t life be easier if you could take a doctor or dietitian home as a portable reminder of the basics? And so the Celiac Disease Video Project was born.
See below for videos of Dr. John Snyder, Chief of the Department of Gastroenterology at CNMC in DC, Dr. Gary Kaplan, Medical Director of Kaplan Center for Integrative Medicine and Cheryl Harris, MPH, RD Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist discussing testing, diagnosis and follow-up, eating a gluten-free diet and a short segment on when it’s not Celiac. Though there are an increasing number of videos out there on people’s stories of diagnosis and ways to make a gluten-free pie, this is the first of its kind to do a run-down of the medical and diet basics by healthcare professionals. The Celiac Sprue Association has been kind enough to support the project. Read More »

“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 very iffy assumption.
The assumption is that your body absorbs what you eat.
Glutenfreeworks.com has pressed the truth, namely that you are actually what you eat and absorb. If something like celiac disease is stopping you from absorbing properly, then you are NOT what you eat.
In this important three minute video, Neil Raff, MD concisely explains how what you absorb is just as important as what you put in your mouth. Dr Raff covers the various ways nutrient absorption can be affected and limited. He also touches on a related topic – foods today do not contain the nutrients they provided in the past.
Kudos to Dr. Raff for covering this important topic in this quick and easy-to-understand must-see presentation.
