The holidays and New Year’s are a great time to celebrate and have a couple of “adult beverages.” However there is still a lot of confusion over which drinks are safe for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Mike and Cam weigh in on gluten removed beers, alcohol distilled from gluten containing grains, and more. Also, Jessica Hanson of Tasty Meditation shares a story about a recent issue that she had trying to get a drink that was safe.
The Holidays are a great time of joy, but let’s be honest, they can be stressful too. It can be especially hard navigating holiday parties and family get togethers that often revolve around food. We are devoting a special hour long podcast to share holiday tips in which we are joined by blogger and fellow celiac, Jessica Hanson (Tasty Meditation). Jessica, Mike and Cam talk strategy to make sure the holidays are as festive and free of stress as possible.
Mike and Cam dig deeper into gluten detection. We talk more about gluten and allergen sniffing dogs, the new Nima device and give our two cents. We also speculate about the future of gluten detection and talk about innovations we would like to see looking ahead.
We are happy to be joined by Dawn Scheu, owner of Willow Service Dogs: trainer of celiac and allergen service dogs. Dawn shares her own celiac story and tells us about the many fascinating details that go into training a dog to detect gluten. Is a gluten sniffing dog for you? Find out in this illuminating podcast.
This week we continue our conversation about Cam’s on-going health issues. We take a look at the gluten free candy list and air our frustrations with how products are labeled in general. We also discuss more about the new findings that not every celiac recovers completely on a gluten free diet.
Celiac research has recently found proof that not everyone heals fully on a gluten free diet alone. Mike and Cam discuss their own celiac journeys and speculate on some of the reasons that they still struggle to reach optimal health.
Mike and Cam are excited to be joined by Dr. Maureen Leonard MD (who has celiac disease herself), Clinical Director of the Center for Celiac Research and Treatment at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Leonard is one of the lead researchers along with Dr. Alessio Fasano working on a ground-breaking new study involving infants and the microbiome.
This study is absolutely first of its kind and seeks to find connections to what makes celiac disease go live in certain people. The hope is that this study could lead to a breakthrough in predicting who will get celiac disease and in how it is treated. They are still looking for candidates to join the study. You don’t want to miss this amazing and illuminating podcast!
Mike and Cam are excited to be joined, all the way from Australia, by Cyndi O’Meara. Cyndi is a best selling author, nutritionist and filmmaker, whose newly released film, “What’s with Wheat,” dives into some of the issues that make today’s wheat so troubling.
Her ground breaking book “Changing Habits Changing Lives” (1998) became an instant best seller and from there she has grown a successful organic food company, certified online education program and exciting new documentary.
Mike and Cam have devoted numerous podcasts debating the downside of the gluten free trend. On this show we talk about some of the positive effects that the gluten free “fad” dieters and celebrities who started this avalanche have had on our community.
