On the TENTH Gluten-Free Day of Christmas
my Health Coach gave to me . . .
. . . the gift of support
Look around and you will find support for your gluten-free life.
After my diagnosis, I was amazed to find a Celiac Support Group nearby and attending a conference where I learned quite a lot. There I met a lot of people going through the same experiences. Unfortunately, at that time, my personal doctors were not informed enough about Celiac or Gluten-Intolerance so were of limited help. Our Pediatrician was helpful but did explain that she was just learning new things about Celiac every day, as the research was so new back then.
It was very important that I found those groups so I had some support. Now in PA, I am right down the street from a Celiac Center at our local hospital!
Local Groups & Beyond
Take time to look in your local area to find Celiac and Food Allergy support groups. Talk to others in your community. A few major groups you can find on-line are the Gluten Intolerance Group, Kids with Food Allergies or Beyond Celiac. Each offers great information and help to find local support in your area, as well as around the world.
Of course, there are multiple web-sites offering information about gluten-free lifestyles, cooking, allergies and gluten-free foods you may want to try. Bookmark some of your favorites and continue to learn. There is a wealth of information at your fingertips, just be careful where you are getting your information.
Research and find your support.
You will learn a lot and find others traveling the same journey!
