Wondering if going gluten-free is right for you? In this months newsletter I am discussing a nutrition “hot” topic, one I am sure to get both positive and negative feedback on, but that is OK. I want to challenge you to think about the choices you make on a daily basis, and inspire you to do what is right for YOU, not for your neighbor.
This month’s topic is “What’s Wrong with Going Gluten-Free?”. Let me preface this by saying that we know, based on scientific research, that gluten allergies and sensitivities are real. Celiac Disease is a medical condition that needs to be treated properly, and treatment involves avoiding gluten. I am also fully aware that people (many clients that I work with) suffer with true gluten sensitivities, and when they avoid gluten, symptoms disappear. However, as a nutrition expert I also know that the same nutrition prescription does not work for everyone, nor do I believe everyone needs to eat gluten-free.
