Gluten sensitivity is a very personal issue for Gini Warner. In 1995, Gini discovered that she had gluten intolerance. As a result of her own personal experience and working with others with celiac disease and gluten intolerance, she has become an expert in this field.
The transition to a gluten-free diet is a gradual process that Gini will guide you through step-by-step.
Gluten Sensitivity – A Gluten-Free Lifestyle
Meal planning and making healthy food choices are two key ingredients in achieving a gluten-free lifestyle.
Research indicates that approximately 85% of Americans have gluten sensitivity. An estimated 3 million Americans have celiac disease. The medical community doesn’t define celiac disease as an allergy but as an autoimmune disorder where nutrients aren’t properly absorbed in the small intestine. The culprit is gluten, a sticky protein found in a vast array of natural and manufactured ingredients and food products including wheat, barley, and rye. These ingredients provide the elastic texture in a slice of bread. It is estimated that this condition affects one in every 130 people worldwide and is undiagnosed in about 90 percent of Americans who have it.
In addition to Celiac Disease, there are a range of medical conditions that are related to gluten intolerance. It is also possible to have symptoms as a result of non-celiac gluten intolerance.
If you think you might be experiencing gluten intolerance or you would like to find out if you have gluten sensitivity, Gini can help you. She will design an eating plan that will make you feel much better in all aspects of your life.
