Celiac Health

Celiac Health Services

"Celiac disease (CD) is a common disorder that is estimated to affect about one percent of the population. It is a condition in which the absorptive surface of the small intestine is damaged by a substance called gluten. Gluten is a group of proteins present in wheat, rye and barley and their cross bred grains. The damage to the intestine can lead to a variety of symptoms and result in an inability of the body to absorb nutrients such as protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, which are necessary for good health."

Transition for Newly Diagnosed

Mindful Nutritional Healing

Mindful nutrition invites awareness into the eating and digestion process.  By observing how the foods we eat affect the body we can begin to heal both body and mind.   We will discuss:

  • macro and micro nutrient balance
  • deficiencies, gut flora, pH balance
  • food intolerance, allergies
  • meal planning
  • likes and aversions
  • emotional eating

Gluten Free Cooking Lessons

While many aspects of gluten free cooking come down to label reading there are parts that require a bit of science.

Cooking lessons can be one-on-one or in small groups.  All sessions will be targeted to your taste preferences.  In some cases additional individuals (local chefs) may be brought in to aid the session.

Gluten free living Doesn't have to be hard...

Often diagnosis comes with the advice "Maintain a completely gluten free diet"... and that's pretty much it.  We are left to figure it out ourselves.

I was lucky that I had a degree in Natural Medicine with an emphasis on nutrition when this diagnosis came. Even with that the transition was hard. Now I am here to help you heal and support you in every way needed.
