Ugh…the media. What a disaster of a ride it’s been with them when it comes to celiac disease. From Jimmy Kimmel to Dr. Oz to Disney to the Today Show and on and on and on. Here…I do my best to take them all to task with the ultimate goal of getting people to take our disease more seriously.
I always rail on the media when it comes to…well…pretty much everything. But in this case, they got it right. Mostly right anyway. Above is an episode of Fox Files from a few weeks back that highlighted Jennifer Esposito’s battle with celiac disease. Here’s […]Read More
It must be nice to be CBS. You’ve got billions of dollars in your piggy bank. You’ve got the highest of high-powered lawyers. You’ve got millions of faithful viewers. Yet all that money and power and you still act like a common thug without […]Read More
This is utter bullshit. Once again, money and power rule over common sense, common courtesy and common decency. And this time…it’s personal. Jennifer Esposito has celiac disease. To say she “has” celiac disease is an understatement. Due to years of crappy doctors and misdiagnoses, […]Read More
The Globe and Mail is Canada’s national newspaper. It’s been in print for 167 years. As per their own website, it’s “an essential read for Canadians who want in-depth reporting on the issues, facts and opinions that affect our domestic landscape and the world […]Read More
Ok…I’ve got a new rule that is in effect as of today. The only people who are allowed to write articles about celiac disease are either medical professionals who understand the disease (and believe me, these are few and far between) and those actually […]Read More

Who I am. And who I'm not.
I AM someone who's been gluten-free since 2007 due to a diagnosis of severe celiac disease. I'm someone who can steer you in the right direction when it comes to going gluten-free. And I'm someone who will always give you the naked truth about going gluten free.
I AM NOT someone who embraces this gluten-free craziness. I didn’t find freedom, a better life or any of that other crap when I got diagnosed. With all due respect to Hunter S. Thompson, I found fear and loathing of an unknown world. But if I can share my wisdom, tell my stories and make the transition easier on you, I’ve done my job.
