Repeat after me: ‘There is no cure for celiac disease.’

no cure for celiac disease

Remember Elissa Goodman? Elissa is a well-known nutritionist who (supposedly) has celiac disease. She was on a podcast with Maria Menounos in August and stated emphatically that you can indeed eat gluten again even if you have celiac disease. All you need to do is follow her advice. Of course, this is 100% BS that was not remotely challenged by Maria. I listened to the hour long podcast (so you don’t have to) and created a 48 second supercut with her ‘advice’. It’s basically just a bunch of nutritionist buzzwords. Here you go:

Note that I am not against functional medicine and the medical community for the most part has failed the celiac community. That being said, what she is suggesting is dangerous, careless, and just plain incorrect. Of course, even with the hundreds of complaints Maria has gotten, the podcast is still up. 🤬

She has no idea how many people she is harming. How this is not medical malpractice I’ll never know.

I encourage you to leave a comment on Maria’s YouTube video of the podcast:

She told me so many things that I “could” eat that I shouldn’t eat. The only good advice that she gave me was that with all my previous medical issues is that I will be okay and I can do this

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.
