Celiac Awareness

Here's a little something from our resident holistic nutritionist, Alexis Nilsen. She is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays here at Zawada Health. Health crazes and diet trends may come and go. But every so often there are advances in the nutrition and medical field that are true game changers, and with the month of May coming to an end so is Celiac Awareness month and I wanted to leave you with some food for thought… Celiac is a difficult disease to recognize and is often overlooked; the symptoms can be non-specific, even non-existent. I speak from experience because I struggled for years with my health before I found out that this nasty little protein was doing so much damage. The connection between gut and disease is real, sadly we often forget this fact and have now drifted to a quick fix mentality and it is clearly not working. If you have questions about the foods you're eating, or maybe you want to clean up your act in the kitchen I would love to help. “Because every time you eat or drink, you are either feeding disease or fighting it.” - Hippocrates
