First major GLUTEN-FREE E-SUMMIT ends on Sunday.

Hi fellow GF peeps,

My hubby Dr. Todd and I just wanted to let you know that the 1st ever GLUTEN-FREE E-SUMMIT ends on Sunday.

As you probably know if you follow us on Facebook, Todd & I have been watching The Gluten Summit this week just like so many of you. And, I just have to ask…




Are you as amazed as I am?!




Over 100,000 people registered! 29 researchers, clinicians, nutritionists and other opinion leaders all gave their time to this unique event—and shared some of the most incredible things I have EVER heard.




How does the world not know this stuff yet?




  • Dr. Alessio Fasano said, “The gut is not like Las Vegas, what happens in the gut doesn’t stay in the gut.” And, guess what folks, GLUTEN IS NOT DIGESTIBLE by humans. It causes permeability in all of us!
  • Dr. Mark Hyman told us that he is testing EVERY SINGLE patient he sees for celiac disease and is AMAZED at how many cases he discovers who lacked visible symptoms!
  • Dr. Aristo Vojdani explained why the skin prick test only measures one portion of the immune system and how VITAL it is to measure its other responses!
  • Liz Lipski told us how DIETS CAN HEAL!
  • Melinda Dennis taught us THE EXACT WORDS to use when eating out in order to avoid contamination.




If you didn’t catch ALL of the interviews, especially if you didn’t watch ANY of the interviews–there are simply TOO MANY things I learned from The Gluten Summit to write them all here–you WILL learn at least one thing from EVERY interview…




YOU MUST OWN THIS SERIES—it could save your life.






And, better yet, the digital package of downloads/streaming/PDFs is only $67!


Or, fill up your library with CDs, DVDs and the transcript book for $425!




DO THE MATH! The digital package is $2.31 per interview… where else can you go to see the “Godfather” of Celiac Disease Diagnosis speak for TWO BUCKS?! NOWHERE BUT THE GLUTEN SUMMIT, THAT’S WHERE!

Yours in gluten free living,

Welcome to my gluten-free corner of the world. :)



I have been thinking about what I would say in my first blog entry.  There are so many ideas floating through my head, I want to eventually get to each and every one of them, but here goes with my first thoughts about what I want this page to be.

First, I have started this blog so that I will be accountable to each and every one of you reading this.  I have to walk the walk, so to speak and although I feel that I am very committed to this lifestyle change,  there may be times that I waiver.  I am only human after all and I know that this will help me stay focused on my journey – with your help, of course!

There are so many gluten free blogs & facebook pages out there and I credit them with giving me the idea to start my own.  They all have really wonderful, useful and intriguing  information and they help me find recipes and encouragement each day.  I feel that blogging my experiences will in turn help others and will bolster my dedication to staying gluten free.  I don’t look at this as a “DIET”.  It is not.  It is a way of life. One, that in order for me to reach optimal health, I must follow for the rest of my life.  It sounds simple.  I know it is not.  I will stumble.  I may fall.  But I intend to always get up, dust myself off and continue on.

I will post more in the coming days and weeks about my journey to this point.  I will blog about how I discovered that I had a problem with gluten/sugar, what challenges I have faced in the past and the challenges that present themselves along the way.  And finally, I will  share my hopes for the future living gluten free in a gluten saturated world.

I am excited because I already have several people who are willing to share their experiences on this blog as well as yummy recipes they have found and a few they have developed themselves.  It takes a village and you are my village.  I am hoping this virtual community will help bolster the journey that each and every one of us are traveling and hopefully make it just a little bit easier along the way.

So I will end this first blog post with a promise to you.  I promise to be honest and up front about my experiences.  I will share thoughts and insights about my struggles and my triumphs.  And if one of you can glean something good from that then I would say I have accomplished something very good indeed.

Until next time,
