Become Your Own Health Advocate and Change Your Life

WOW! The American people have strongly spoken for change in the United States with the election of Donald Trump.

You, too, can speak up for change in your own health and wellness!

Unfortunately, in too many cases, it is necessary to become an advocate for your own health. Over 300 symptoms, diseases, and associated conditions are linked to gluten by thousands (over 15,000) of research studies from around the world. Very little is being put forth to educate our doctors on the many hazards of consuming gluten. It appears the researchers are all on one side of the river and no bridge has been erected to connect to our doctors. Many alternative and more holistic practitioners are a bit more educated on gluten, but vast unawareness still exists in many facets of medicine.

Did you know:

  • Too many doctors still think celiac disease is only a childhood disease
  • Too many doctors think celiac is only a gastrointestinal issue
  • Celiac disease can affect any part of your body, at any age, and can affect multiple bodily systems
  • Too many doctors have no idea that many gastrointestinal issues can get better once the irritating protein is recognized and addressed
  • Many cancers and autoimmune diseases, neurological, skin, and organ ailments are linked to gluten
  • You need to REQUEST certain blood tests or it’s very likely you will only be offered one test for celiac (that one test has a high rate of false negatives and does not detect intolerance to gluten which affects many more folks)
  • Testing negative for celiac disease does not negate gluten intolerance
  • Few doctors know of the very sensitive stool testing that saved my family

If you or a loved one has most any chronic ailment or illness please do your body and brain a favor and get educated on gluten before your life becomes worse.

Testing information to detect celiac or gluten intolerance is spelled out in my award-winning, life-transforming Toxic Staple as only a driven grandmother could.

Mainstream medicine has shifted over the decades from concern for the patient’s wellness to more interest in “controlling” and “managing” your disease with drugs instead of trying to determine the bottom-line as to what’s making you sick.

Realize that you do have control over much of your health.

I can’t imagine what shape my family or I would be in if we hadn’t discovered gluten was eroding our health, on so many levels. We are all going to meet our Maker, but some of us are going to have an easier and I expect longer ride.

Poem: Trickster or Treat?

I have to admit Halloween has never been a favorite holiday of mine, but I was prompted to write this jingle for a local poetry group I’ve been trying to attend.

Trickster or Treat

It is a devilish trickster
In everything you know
From white flour in cupcakes
To wheat flour pizza dough

It plays with your health
In insidious ways
It can lead to cancer
And shorten your days

Neuro issues quite linked
To celiac disease
Detect if you have it
Get some expertise

Part of its schtick
Is autoimmune disease
It devastates your body
With seemingly great ease

Type 1 diabetes
Is associated you know
All should be tested
Before diseases overthrow

Over 80 autoimmune
Oh, you didn’t know
From thyroid, blood, and liver
To MS and cardio

A few symptoms
You might recognize
Reflux, fatigue, and headaches
Can be a great disguise

From intestinal issues
To weight loss or gain
To organ and skin problems
Can be related to grain

If you experience
Most any chronic disease
Consider it could be
Gluten is your sleaze

You have an opportunity
To educate yourself
On the many faces of gluten
That can deteriorate one’s health

The treat is finding out
What is wrecking your health
Once you discover it’s gluten
You’ll realize your greatest wealth

Over 300 symptoms and maladies
Linked to gluten if you please
Substantiated by world research
This is a moment to seize

By deleting this nasty protein
Your body can quickly heal
Feeling energetic, never sick
Has tremendous appeal

If you’ve been down and out
Not feeling very well
Get tested for gluten issues
Your health can excel

If your doctor says,
“There’s nothing I can do”
Don’t believe it for a minute
With gluten-free you can renew

A decade into “Toxic Staple”
Recommended for doctors too
With life-transforming info
For the sickly to pursue

So take this poem seriously
Your health may be at stake
Let the gluten-free diet
Your health vigorously remake

For excellent testing information that goes beyond what is generally offered (if it is even offered), if you have chronic health issues, please check out and share with your doctor Chapters 16 and 17 in my book. Little is being extended in the way of conferences for health care professionals in all facets of medicine, and certainly not enough testing info is offered unless you have full-blown celiac disease and do test positive.  Too many folks test negative and told they don’t have a problem with gluten when in reality they are gluten intolerant.

Catch this nasty monster before it overtakes your health.



Quote: A Bit Crazed!

A woman I met at a show said her test for buying a book was whether or not the first page of the first chapter grabbed her. She bought the book! Below is the first paragraph she read from my life-transforming book, Toxic Staple:

“When the health of one’s children and grandchildren is severely, negatively impacted and the doctors don’t think anything is wrong, or can’t find answers, or treat the symptoms with heavy pharmaceuticals that don’t address the cause, then one can become a bit crazed. I don’t mean crazed as in mentally unstable, I mean crazed as in passionately driven to learn as much as possible about the origin of the numerous and insidious maladies affecting not just members of my family but a huge number of people in families around the world. I also mean crazed as in determined to get the word out to the many folks who are finding no resolution to their ailments despite having had ‘every test there is’—except the right ones.”

Of course gluten affects people of all ages, not just children.If you are finding no resolution to your ailments, are swamped with drugs and their numerous side effects, or are just plain “sick and tired of being sick and tired” maybe you too will be grabbed by this intro to getting your health back. Go to the Free Report box in upper right corner of this website and download your free copy of The Hazards of Gluten. If you can relate to even one of those symptoms or chronic ailments (there are over 300) you or a loved one may have intolerance to gluten. Read Toxic Staple and discover a new path toward rejuvenated health and energy, and how to track it down, if gluten is your problem. Your health is in your very own hands. You won’t believe the research and stories you will read.

Poem: A Healthy Start

I was inspired to write this jingle after meeting a family who no doubt would benefit from reading Toxic Staple since most of them had gut issues and were getting nowhere with their doctors. Unfortunately I got her contact info wrong, so if this mom recognizes herself in this poem, please get back to me through my site. We met at Logan Airport.

A Healthy Start

I talk to everyone
To introduce my book
I encourage sick and tired folks
To take a deeper look

At Logan on our way
To warmth in the glorious sun
I met a handsome family
Whose health was being undone

Amazed, the mom said to me
“So funny we should meet
As we got out of the car
We discussed gluten and wheat”

Mom thought her teenaged son
Might have dreaded IBS
And wondered if gluten had
Created his intestinal distress

She questioned if she too
Had a tricky gut issue
As she had intestinal complaints
She needed to subdue

Her daughter she strongly felt
Might have the problem too
And was ready to devour my book
And all the info she could accrue

To the busy ticket counter
They soon did arrive
Now armed with a book
To help her family survive

Off they happily went
Into the glorious sun
If gluten is their problem
Their ailments can be undone

I tell most everyone I met
The GF lifestyle is forever
If intolerant to gluten
You must eat it…never… ever

To be sensitive to gluten
And not address its effect
Could lead to many ailments
And lives being totally wrecked

Dear reader of this rhyme
What you may not know
Gluten can crimp your life
And deliver an unhealthy blow

So read Toxic Staple
Take my book to heart
This life-transforming info
Will give you a healthy start.

Depression and Gluten

What sad news about the talented and respected actor and comedian, Robin Williams, who has brought so much entertainment and so many laughs to the American public.

Not a day goes by that I don’t hear some awful news on TV, radio, or among friends and acquaintances that could be the result of gluten ingestion. Having read over two thousand abstracts and studies on the hazards of gluten consumption, I wonder if he and many others with debilitating illness might have been tested for gluten sensitivity.

Did you know that depression is a common symptom in those diagnosed with celiac disease. Many other neuro/cerebral symptoms/diseases and associated conditions, some of them very degenerative, are linked to gluten through numerous studies from around the world.

Celiac disease slowly destroys the ability of the intestinal wall to absorb the nutrients vital for good health. It stands to reason that if one is mal-absorbing due to damaged villi it could affect your brain and neurons. After all, in order to be healthy the brain and neurons need certain vitamins and minerals.

The longest chapter in my new book, TOXIC STAPLE: How GLUTEN may be wrecking your health – and what you can do about it! is entitled Neurological Dilemmas: The Mind-blowing Hazards of Gluten. If you or your child are suffering from ANY neurological health issues (or any other chronic health issues) please checkout more info above on this website for the lowdown on my book. It offers health and life-transforming information.

Neurological maladies are nothing to play with and often get worse over time. PLEASE get tested for gluten sensitivity, and if positive take the gluten-free lifestyle very seriously. You will need to request certain tests or it’s very likely you won’t get adequate testing to detect an intolerance.
