Gluten Intolerance and Celiac Disease


Woman pushing away bread

In 1995, Gini Warner 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.

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 flours that provide the elastic texture in a slice of bread. It is estimated that this condition affects one in every 130 people worldwide, and it 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, Gini can help you design an eating plan that will make you feel much better in all aspects of your life.
