Beyond Celiac recently published a thought provoking article entitled "Shattering the Myth: The Gluten Free Diet Isn't Enough to Treat Celiac Disease." In the post, they lay out the five main reasons that people with celiac disease need more treatments than the gluten free diet alone. Mike and Cam share their perspective on each of these points and takeaways from the article.
Mike and Cam are excited to welcome back Josh Schieffer, founder of The Guided Buyer. Josh shares exciting news on how and why he expanded The Gluten Free Buyers Guide and Awards to include other types of dietary guides. Josh also tells us about how he turned his passion for surfing into a non profit, WatermansWarehouse.org, which provides free swim lessons to children in his community without easy access to pools.
Much of the time when we talk about the manifestation and symptoms of celiac disease we talk about G.I.symptoms. In recent years we are learning more and more that neurological and psychological issues are more common than once believed. Mike and Cam dig deep into some of the connections. Included in their candid conversation is a recent study showing that a large portion of folks diagnosed with ADHD actually have undiagnosed celiac. Mike also shares some of his childhood neurological challenges and his own issues around ADHD.
Mike and Cam are happy to sit down with Mike's daughter Jessica, who is now officially a teenager. Jessica shares some of the ups and downs of her summer from a celiac perspective and how she feels about going back to school in person for the first time in almost 2 years! Jessica talks candidly about some of her takeaways from her remote schooling, what she's looking forward to about returning to school in person, and the things that are adding to her stress. She certainly isn't looking forward to the cafeteria food fights!
It's September, which for many means heading back to school, so Mike and Cam sit down with Andrea Tucker of Baltimore Gluten Free to talk about some of the challenges of going back to school with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. She also points out some issues that may have changed for the better due to pandemic protocols. We also discuss the importance of 504 plans and how to plan for success when your student is heading off to college. Andrea has many tips and tricks and shares news of an upcoming webinar and her excellent GF College 101 Course.
