The author is a volunteer advocate, not a medical expert, and has made every effort to provide reliable, accurate, and up-to-date information to inspire the reader, in conjunction with his or her doctor, to solve some of their health issues that may be linked to gluten. The opinions expressed in Toxic Staple or www.toxicstaple.com are based on the author’s personal experiences, copious research into conditions and testing related to celiac disease and non-celiac gluten intolerance (CD/GI), and the personal stories of patients. They are not necessarily the opinions of the storytellers or doctors/researchers quoted in this book or on the website. Although a gluten-free lifestyle has brought miracle results to many, the author, publisher, and storytellers do not guarantee any such results; each case is very different, and the gluten-free diet must be absolute. How the reader applies this information is NOT the liability of the author or publisher.

ALWAYS check with your doctor or a medical professional to determine the appropriateness of this information in relation to your own medical issues. The information in this book is only an aid and should not be used as a substitute for competent medical expertise in the treatment and diagnosis of CD/GI. NEVER stop taking a prescribed medication without consulting a doctor. ALWAYS check with your doctor before taking supplements. Chapters 19 and 20 on the gluten-free diet are a great start, but are not all-inclusive.  Knowledge in the area of gluten sensitivity is constantly changing, and some information in this book or on suggested websites may become obsolete.
