Gluten-Related Disorders: From Recognition to Management Seminar
Monday, December 2nd in Eugene, OR
Tuesday, December 3rd in Portland, OR
Currently, it is estimated that one out of one hundred Americans has celiac disease, yet only 5% of them are diagnosed correctly. In this country, it takes an average of 6 to 11 years to get a proper diagnosis of celiac disease. Additionally, at least 10% of the population is dealing with gluten sensitivity. If left untreated, these gluten-related disorders can lead to over 300 associated signs and symptoms, many of which can be reversed and/or stopped.
We now know that these disorders can affect anyone, anywhere, at anytime. Unfortunately, at this point, the general public and healthcare professionals know little to nothing about gluten-related disorders. As a result, many people are living far below their health potential; some are putting up with chronic aliments and others are living with an incorrect diagnosis – becoming sicker by the day.
This program will give both health professionals and patients a greater understanding of how to recognize, diagnose, and treat gluten-related disorders.
- Summarize how to recognize, diagnose, and treat gluten-related disorders.
- Summarize the signs, symptoms, and complications related to gluten-related disorders.
- Recognize ways to diagnose gluten-related disorders, such as specific testing methods.
- Define ways to manage a gluten-free diet: how to live a healthy gluten-free life.
- Discuss the increase in gluten-related disorders – why now?
- Review new pills and vaccine treatments, and world updates/research.
I just returned from the Gluten & Allergen Free Expo in Dallas this past weekend. What a great gathering of wonderful and knowledgable people!
Stop in the office to see all the goodies I brought back with me — skincare products, Paleo bread, new cookbooks, snacks, and more!
Last weekend we packed up our bags and headed down to California for the Gluten and Allergen Free Expo.
Nadine was a presenter and spoke on two different topics. The first topic was on the ‘Paleo Diet’ and the second was on how ‘Gluten Affects Your Entire Body’. We have received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from these presentations and can’t thank everyone enough for attending. We also had the first copies of our new ‘Getting Started Guides’ and we were beyond thrilled to get these out in the community!
This was by far one of the best expos that we have been to. We met some incredible people and talked to some new and exciting vendors. Below are just a few of our favorite things from the expo!
Schar was there with their awesome gluten free products.
Two of our favorite people in the gluten free community, Anne Roland-Lee from Schar and The Celiac Diva!
Tammy from The Healthy Gluten Free Life and Paleo Indulgences was there selling her incredible cookbooks. As many of you know her cookbooks are by far our favorites!
Red Apple Lipstick was there with tons of samples and awesome products. Red Apple not only has a great line of gluten free beauty products they have an amazing team as well. It was awesome to finally meet them and hear more about their company. Look for a blog post all about their awesomeness coming soon!
These sweet t-shirts and sweatshirts are from Celiac and The Beast – Not only are they an awesome design, word on the street is that they are extremely comfy! You can order them through her facebook page here
We were at the super cool presenter table with these awesome ladies! From the left is Laura Russell, Mrs. Northwest Brandy Wendler, Amy from The Family Chef, Sam, and Phyllis from Enterolab
We are book hoarders here in the office… If there is a book related to celiac disease or gluten intolerance we probably have it. However, we only have a few books that are directed toward children. We absolutely love this new book ‘Gluten Glitch’ – check out her website http://ieatdifferent.com/The_Gluten_Glitch_CP8J.html
These are the wonderful ladies from Monkey Sea, Monkey Doo – They have a line of all natural personal care products specifically for kids. All of their products are gluten, soy, dairy, and oat free. Although it may be for kids, we love their cherry lotion and we are kids at heart so it works perfect.
These folks (Agha and Annie) are from Baba Joon’s and have the best testing ‘chocolate chewies’ – What was so cool is that we actually knew them from years back in Oregon. We were beyond excited to see them here at the gf expo. We ate our fair share of these amazing little chocolate miracles but we could eat more!
We were lucky enough to sit and talk with these brilliant women for a while! From the left is Willie Victor from Essentials for Health, Nadine, Sam, Meghan O’Hara from True Nourishment, and Margaret Walsh from the NFCA
We had such an amazing time at the Expo - They are taking over the USA and have shows this year in Chicago, Des Moines, New Jersey, and Dallas. Hopefully we will be able to attend more and share with you All!
