Written for gluten-free dieters and their doctors, this condensed and easy-to-digest compilation of years of medical and nutritional research explains why people aren’t healing on the gluten-free diet as we know it, and offers solutions for modifying that diet so that the reader can begin to truly heal.
For instance, did you know that 50% of celiacs also show sensitivity to dairy? Did you know that there are parts of wheat besides gluten that could be causing you harm? Did you also know that products labeled "gluten-free" can contain some amount of gluten in them, and that the threshold of how much gluten is safe is actually controversial? These topics and more are explained in the book. The author also provides links to further resources.
Whether you are new to gluten-free, or have been gluten-free for a while but still aren't feeling 100%, this book will help you to regain control over your health.
"The science is now clear about one thing: sensitivity to gluten-containing foods is a huge problem affecting millions of people, the majority of whom don't have celiac disease. Heather is one of those people. Is gluten the only problem? In her quest for perfect health, Heather explores this issue from a personal perspective by consulting with the experts and the scientific literature. If you still have symptoms on a gluten free diet, this book will give you ideas worth exploring." ~ Norm Robillard, Ph.D., Founder of Digestive Health Institute and creator of the Fast Tract Diet.
"If you are new to the gluten-free diet, or are continuing to experience symptoms, Heather Jacobsen may have just the answers you are looking for. " - Ron Hoggan, Ed. D, author of Dangerous Grains and Cereal Killers.
From the Author
"Its hard to believe that up to 92% of people with celiac disease don't heal on the conventional gluten-free diet. This shocking statistic is rarely discussed in the gluten-free community. However, it is well known that celiac disease patients continue to experience a decreased quality of life even after taking gluten out of their diet, and that they can continue to be plagued by a whole host of symptoms and complaints, many even life-threatening if left unchecked.
Sadly, many take it as gospel that if they have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, they are destined to suffer in one capacity or another for the rest of their lives. I don't believe it has to be this way. Celiacs and gluten sensitive people should be able to achieve optimal health again, if they do the diet the right way."
