Celiac disease is one of the most common chronic health disorders.  Food allergies and sensitivities are experienced by roughly 75% of our population.  It is unfortunate to be hungry, so hungry you will eat anything. Compromising your immune system, creating a stiff body, upset stomach, headaches, mood swings, diarrhea etc. 

Here is a story: "I remember talking to a mother who had a sick 7 year old who had Celiac Disease. The exasperated mom said she had to choose between feeding her whole family or just feeding her sick daughter the very expensive gluten free food she could find. The distraught mother said, referring to her celiac daughter, "She’s just going to have to live with diarrhea.” — Dee Valdez, Gluten Free Food Bank Organizer and Gluten Free Advocate.

Let's all be healthy!
