Are You Gluten Sensitive? How Would You Know?

RECOGNIZE you may have an issue with gluten (celiac disease or gluten intolerance) if you can relate to any of the following:

  • Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?
  • Are you misdiagnosed, undiagnosed, or overdosed?
  • Do you have one or more chronic symptoms/conditions that just won’t let up?
  • Do you pick up every cold and flu bug or have a poor immune system?
  • Are you plagued with allergies or asthma?
  • Are your children bouncing off the walls in school, sick a lot, suffering on the autism spectrum, not able to focus, exhibiting behavioral/anxiety issues, etc.?
  • Do autoimmune diseases, anemia, and/or cancer seem to run in your family?
  • Are you suffering with liver, cardio, thyroid conditions, and more?
  • Are you plagued with migraines/headaches, insomnia, restless legs syndrome?
  • Do you think illness, arthritis, and lack of energy are just a part of growing older?
  • Are you fed up with too many doctors’ appointments, time lost from work and play, too many meds, and not enough answers as to what’s making you so sick and tired?

This is the short list. Over 300 symptoms, diseases, and associated conditions are linked to gluten. TOXIC STAPLE is an eye opener, as in “WOW, I didn’t know that!”

Wouldn’t you like to feel better, have more energy, and age more gracefully without chronic illness and degenerative conditions? TOXIC STAPLE can help you detect celiac disease or gluten intolerance with significant testing information, and it can help transform your health and life by following a gluten-free lifestyle, if you or someone you love is gluten sensitive.

 

Are Celiac Disease & Gluten Intolerance Epidemic?

YOU BET THEY ARE!

On my way to the gate for a flight to the 15th International Celiac Disease Conference held in Chicago I shared my business card for my new book, TOXIC STAPLE, and chatted with nine different people. I was amazed at the results. Here is the rundown:

  • Has CD and follows a GF diet
  • Has a friend with gluten issues
  • Her mother has CD and is doing the GF diet
  • Has IBS and fibromyalgia and her doctor does’t know the cause – on meds (I suggested she read my book then loan it to her doctor)
  • Knows 2 friends with CD/gluten issues
  • Said she probably needs the GF diet – has sinus/allergy issues (she’s probably right)
  • Has a friend doing the GFD
  • Has CD – her sister is an MD and is up on CD (there is still much unawareness of the serious complications of celiac disease in traditional medicine)
  • Was interested and will share my info

This is an incredible slant toward epidemic, wouldn’t you say? Eight out of nine people either had a gluten issue themselves or knew someone who did. Three to four years ago gluten and celiac were not a part of anyone’s vocabulary unless they were one of the few diagnosed. But since then nearly everyone I talk to either has gluten issues or knows someone who does. It’s exploding!

Read TOXIC STAPLE and you will come to understand the breadth of nutritional deficiencies, symptoms, diseases, and disorders being caused by a protein once thought to be healthy.
