I received an email last fall from one of those nurse that made me cry---literally (and still makes me cry.)
With her permission, I am sharing Connie's email, and a picture of her son, Aaron. I remember her coming up to talk to me after my presentation. It was great to hear back from her with an update about her handsome, active, nearly sixteen year old son.
Celiac is the most common genetic autoimmune disorder, yet the most under and mis-diagnosed. And to make it even more complicated, there are over 300 symptoms. As you can see in Aaron's case (and my own son's case) NCGS (nonceliac gluten sensitiviyt) is very real!
Materials are available through the website (and heck, if you are within an hour or so of the St. Louis area, I'd love to come talk to your school nurses, or teachers and staff.)
Shortly after going gluten free (summer 2016)
A little over one year gluten free!
Six or seven months gluten free.
Check out these other "Before and After" stories. Be sure to scroll past all the photos to read their stories. Amazing!
TOO MANY are sick when a "simple" diet change can change (and save) their life.
Thank you again Sybil, for creating this program. Another life changed!
