We are happy to be joined by Dawn Scheu, owner of Willow Service Dogs: trainer of celiac and allergen service dogs. Dawn shares her own celiac story and tells us about the many fascinating details that go into training a dog to detect gluten. Is a gluten sniffing dog for you? Find out in this illuminating podcast.
This week we continue our conversation about Cam's on-going health issues. We take a look at the gluten free candy list and air our frustrations with how products are labeled in general. We also discuss more about the new findings that not every celiac recovers completely on a gluten free diet.
Celiac research has recently found proof that not everyone heals fully on a gluten free diet alone. Mike and Cam discuss their own celiac journeys and speculate on some of the reasons that they still struggle to reach optimal health.
Mike and Cam are excited to be joined by Dr. Maureen Leonard MD (who has celiac disease herself), Clinical Director of the Center for Celiac Research and Treatment at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Leonard is one of the lead researchers along with Dr. Alessio Fasano working on a ground-breaking new study involving infants and the microbiome.
This study is absolutely first of its kind and seeks to find connections to what makes celiac disease go live in certain people. The hope is that this study could lead to a breakthrough in predicting who will get celiac disease and in how it is treated. They are still looking for candidates to join the study. You don't want to miss this amazing and illuminating podcast!
Mike and Cam are excited to be joined, all the way from Australia, by Cyndi O'Meara. Cyndi is a best selling author, nutritionist and filmmaker, whose newly released film, "What's with Wheat," dives into some of the issues that make today's wheat so troubling.
Her ground breaking book "Changing Habits Changing Lives" (1998) became an instant best seller and from there she has grown a successful organic food company, certified online education program and exciting new documentary.
