The Gluten Free Diet is NOT a Fad Diet!

I wrote the following as a comment on another blog after someone said they couldn’t wait for the gluten free fad diet to go away. Usually I ignore those comments. This time, for whatever reason, I didn’t. The words poured out and I decided to edit it and post it on my blog. So without […]

How long have I had celiac? (Or musings about the ancestral sin)

How long have I had celiac disease? It’s an interesting question that should be relatively straightforward to answer. But it’s not actually that easy. On one level I have had celiac for less than two months. That’s how long it’s been since I was given a firm diagnosis, I began attempting a gluten free diet, […]

Celiac & Autoimmune Diseases

Not the Fast I’ve Chosen – Part 9

One Month Gluten Free

It’s been more or less one month since my EGD and since I began working to be gluten free. With the help of my wonderful wife, I think I’ve been mostly successful at it. It’s been quite the crash course learning curve. I thought I would pause for a moment to compare the state of […]

Not the Fast I’ve Chosen – Part 2

Before I continue in the direction I pointed at the end of my first post in this series, I want to spend a little more time on the intertwined, interlocking, and interpenetrating nature of our body, mind, and spirit. I know it is often a foreign idea to those shaped within our American culture, but […]
