New E-Book: Gluten Toxicity
I received an email back in October looking for gluten-free bloggers to be included in an upcoming book about Celiac Disease and gluten intolerances. Of course, I jumped at the opportunity to include Gluten-Free Fun and was excited to learn that the NYC Celiac Disease Meetup group would also be featured in the support group section of this book.

The new e-book is finally finished! It's called "Gluten Toxicity: The Mysterious Symptoms of Celiac Disease, Dermatitis Herpetiformis, and Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance" and is now available for purchase and download at the author's website. Shelly Stuart, R.N., B.Sc.N., the author of the book said it was a "2 year project... [and] a resource to increase awareness" about gluten. With 30 chapters covering everything from types of gluten intolerances to in-depth explanation of symptoms to diet and finally support for your gluten-free lifestyle, I think this book is full information that is very helpful to both the newly diagnosed and the veteran Celiac. You can read more about Shelly below.

As I mentioned, you can order this e-book at Shelly's website. In addition, Gluten Toxicity will be available as a paperback from and will be available in some stores in British Columbia, Canada. Congratulations to Shelly for finishing this book and helping the gluten-free community with the new book Gluten Toxicity.

From the back cover of Gluten Toxicity:

Are you suffering from fatigue, anemia, indigestion, bowel symptoms, skin rashes, joint pain, infertility, poor bone density, headaches or other neurological issues?

These symptoms, along with many others, can be triggered by immune reactions to gluten. Unfortunately for those who are suffering, gluten intolerance is very under-recognized and under-diagnosed by doctors. Sadly, patients often suffer for decades with incomplete diagnosis and misdiagnosis.

"Gluten Toxicity" provides a comprehensive checklist of symptoms, in depth analysis of the diagnostics tests, an outline of the gluten-free diet, tips to help with a new lifestyle adjustment, and recommendations to consider when complications arise. Helpful checklists will assist the reader to keep track of blood test results, and tasks to help with healing. If you are looking for a definitive guide that provides comprehensive information about gluten intolerance, then this book is for you.
