Media

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.

Courtney Shea, Gluten and the Crap That Passes For Journalism These Days

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 […]

The Worst Video EVER on Going Gluten-Free

August 1, 2012 | 38 Comments

It’s no big secret that I hate our media. I think they have way too much control in our society and if they are not trying to sway people in one direction, they are scraping the bottom of the barrel for a buck. Even […]

July 6, 2012 | 56 Comments

Once again, us celiacs been lumped together with other “picky eaters”. The above video was from the Kathy Lee and Hoda show a few days ago. My apologies for the crappy quality, but it’s not nearly as crappy as the quality of the show […]

Ok…I wasn’t going to touch this one. No seriously I wasn’t. It seems I’ve gotten a bit of a reputation as a “ranter” and people contacted me yesterday asking me for another Kardashian-type rant. But I was going to take a pass on this […]

Celiac Disease, Gluten & the Media

February 9, 2012 | 31 Comments

Yesterday was indeed a strange day in glutenville (glutentown? glutenburgh??). It’s days like yesterday that I think us celiacs need to hire a top public relations firm to help us rise above the noise of the media-created gluten hysteria. As I’ve said in the […]

Somebody posted this video on Twitter yesterday and I must have watched it 10 times already. It speaks volumes not only to the difficulty of having celiac disease, but to the stigmatism sometimes attached to it. (If you can’t see the above video, here […]

The Gluten Dude App: For a Better Gluten-free Life

Eating out with celiac disease is stressful. The Gluten Dude app lists only restaurants that have been personally vetted, so you can spend less time worrying and more time enjoying yourself.

Who I am. And who I'm not.

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.
