The Journey to Healthy Celiac Living
Unlike most things on this site, this is not music, but a paperback book by my mother, Cecile Weed. Mom has worked tirelessly to help those with gluten intolerance and celiac disease, and has helped hundreds of doctors, nutritionists, and restaurant chefs understand the problems and needs of those with gluten intolerance. Since her work with the Celiac Sprue Association (now National Celiac Association – Orange County Celiacs) in 1987, the world has become very conscious of gluten intolerance, and personally, I think she has had a big part in that.
Here she outlines her life from childhood to adulthood, living with, and learning about celiac disease. She hopes to help others, inspire them to pursue good health, and encourage celiac testing by those who have a close relative with celiac disease.
Preface by the author:
“Celiac is an inherited disease. If you are thinking of going on a gluten-free diet, or are wondering if you have celiac disease, the first thing to do is go to a doctor and get tested. If you do have celiac disease, from that day on your goal will be to avoid all gluten. Information about gluten-free food is prevalent now. Gluten is in wheat, barley and rye. Oats are to be avoided unless the packaging labels it as gluten-free oats.
I’ve wanted to write a book for people who have the same celiac symptoms as I’ve had over the years. Celiac disease was a big part of my early life, from 1933 on, but then the cause of my problems were not known. I hope what I’ve learned can help others. What a joy to be healthy!”
