This week's podcast is an exploration of an article from US News and World Report titled: 5 Myths About Celiac Disease, written by Stacy Colino. Mike and Cam have a fascinating discussion on such topics as, "should everyone be screened for celiac disease?" and "is celiac disease serious?" spoiler alert...it is. Along the way we find out strange things including how Cam found out he is allergic to cock roaches. Seriously we can't make this stuff up!
In their last podcast of Celiac Awareness Month 2016, Mike and Cam discuss an article that was published in the Atlantic Magazine online that talks about the idea that the gluten-free diet should not be attempted without medical assistance. They also reflect back on the true meaning of Celiac Awareness month.
We are pleased to be joined by yet another fantastic guest for Celiac Awareness Month. Melinda Arcara (who also goes by Gluten-Free Bebe) shares her personal story which eventually led to her writing her fantastic new book: 3 Steps To Gluten-Free Living. In this helpful guide, she shares her practical step-by-step method to a happy and healthy gluten free life.
In our second episode of Celiac Awareness Month, we are joined by guest Lisa Cantkier (pronounced: Cont' e yay). Lisa is a holistic nutritionist in the Toronto area. She has an amazing amount of information on celiac disease and you won't believe her own incredible story of getting diagnosed -- at only 18 months old!
We are kicking off Celiac Awareness Month in style with special guest, Alice Bast. Alice is the founder, CEO and President of Beyond Celiac (formerly the NFCA). Our fascinating discussion with Alice includes everything from her group’s recent name change to how their mission has evolved over the years. We also get into many of the struggles faced by the celiac community including social isolation and the continued challenges to insure that we get safe gluten free options.
