How a Book About Celiac Disease Became an Online Treatment Resource for the Gluten Free World.

Gluten Free Works co-founders, John Libonati and Cleo J. Libonati, RN, BSN published the groundbreaking medical reference, Recognizing Celiac Disease, in 2007.

Endorsed by physicians and professors at Harvard, Columbia, University of Chicago, University of Pennsylvania, Jefferson Medical College and other esteemed medical institutions, Recognizing Celiac Disease was the first book to gather medical research from around the world and present over 300 signs and symptoms of celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.

Today, that work has been converted into the Gluten Free Works Treatment Guide, a one-of-a-kind self-help resource for the newly diagnosed and people who are gluten-free, but still suffering symptoms.

John and Cleo discuss how the Gluten Free Works Treatment Guide grew out of Recognizing Celiac Disease and their experience lecturing to support groups and medical organizations across the United States.
