Celiac Disease Support Group

Celiac disease is an auto-immune disorder of the digestive system that occurs in genetically-predisposed individuals. It is characterised by damage or flattening to all or part of the villi lining the small intestine, which interferes with the absorption of nutrients. This damage is caused by eating anything with gluten (gliadin), a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley (as hordein).

Online Gluten Conference

Some of the best doctors in the country are having a Gluten Summit online. Dr. Peter Osborne is just one of the doctors Who is giving a talk. It will be held from November 11th to the 17th. You just have to register at:

Theglutensummit.com

They are just asking for an email address and your name. Check out the site for more information. 29 doctors from all over the country are participating. I think education is really important for those who suffer from this problem. Hope you find this helpful.

:
I have researched this guy a chiropractor not an MD - and it appears to me that his primary motivation is to sell unproven and undocumented tests. Buyer beware.

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
