About the Author

Danna Korn is the author of Kids with Celiac Disease: A Family Guide to Raising Happy, Healthy Gluten-Free Children—0890627216; is the National Spokesperson for Celiac Disease Awareness; and has written dozens of articles on gluten-free living that have been published in national magazines and newspapers. Danna has been researching celiac disease since her son, Tyler, was diagnosed with the condition in 1991. That same year, she founded R.O.C.K. (Raising Our Celiac Kids), a support group for families of children on a gluten-free diet. Today, Danna leads more than 60 chapters of R.O.C.K. throughout the nation. She speaks frequently around the country to health-care professionals, celiacs, parents of celiacs, parents of autistic kids involved in a dietary intervention program, and others on a gluten-free diet. Danna currently lives in Encinitas, California.

More About the Author

(www.dannakorn.com) ...
Known as "The Gluten-Free Guru," Danna Korn is an author, motivational speaker, and renowned expert on the gluten-free diet and medical conditions that benefit. She is the author of six bestselling books (her 7th is in the works) on the subject of the gluten-free lifestyle, including three in the prestigious "For Dummies" series. "For Dummies" authors are always the gurus in their field, and are asked to author the books -- not the other way around.

Respected as one of the leading authorities on the gluten-free diet and the medical conditions that benefit from it, she has been featured in People Magazine, on ABC's "20-20," and dozens of other national media outlets.

Danna's passion for helping people live (and love!) a gluten-free lifestyle was born from a desperate need to help her own son. In 1991, her son was diagnosed with celiac disease, a genetic intolerance to gluten. Doctors told her that her son, like others with celiac disease, would "suffer" a life of deprivation and restrictions, and they gave her no direction for following a gluten-free diet, which was the key to his improved health. Danna wasn't about to accept that sentence, nor would she flounder like many others attempting a gluten-free diet did. Furthermore, she was committed to helping others who could benefit from her knowledge. She was a mom on a mission to help millions.

Without the benefit of the internet, and ignoring the widespread warnings that no one would ever publish a book on the subject, Danna conducted extensive medical research with the nation's foremost experts, and then wrote her first book -- she sent four proposals to publishers. She received four acceptances.

Her work in the gluten-free community has had profound effects, resulting in availability of products that would never have made it to store shelves, and a skyrocketing awareness of the benefits of a gluten-free diet.

Several bestselling books and thousands of speaking engagements later, Danna has earned the moniker of "Gluten-Free Guru" -- and in the process has helped improve the lives of millions by helping them adopt healthier lifestyles. She is a partner with General Mills and their gluten-free initiative, and a consultant for Prometheus Laboratories. In 1991 she founded (and still runs) the world's largest support group of its type, R.O.C.K. (Raising Our Celiac Kids), which has more than 140 chapters throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Danna's passion for wellness extends far beyond gluten-free living. She is co-founder and CEO of Sonic Boom Wellness, an innovative corporate wellness company with more than 100 well-known clients throughout the world.

Recipes, index and a 26-page resource directory are included. The author is an expert on the subject and the founder of R.O.C.K. (Raising Our Celiac Kids), a support group for families with celiac disease.

Format: Paperback
This is a must have book for parents of Celiac kids. It is the most up-to-date book on the market and includes a CURRENT list of approved foods/additives. That's very helpful if you have a dietician like mine who gave me an outdate list from 2001. Much has changed. For example, some vinegars are okay. Which means some mustards and ketchups etc are okay. My favorite part is page 193 where it starts a list of suggested meal items for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Extremely helpful when you find yourself in the kitchen after a long day and you're wondering what is safe to feed your child. There are a lot of regular food items that are safe. I bought extra books for my family and care givers because the first chapter explains all about the disease. Very helpful because I fumble with the explanation about how any amount of gluten is poison to the system. I HIGHLY recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
While waiting for blood tests results on my son, I picked up this book at the health food store. I stayed up late for three nights in a row reading. I feel this book will really help us deal with the in s and outs of a gluten free diet. My son's blood tests came back inconclusive and the doctor has decided not to do a biopsy at this time, but just trying out a gluten free diet for a week after his blood was drawn has made up my mind that even if he doesn't have Celiac, we all noted a significant improvement in his behavior and his health. This book helped me identify many symptoms of gluten intolerance in myself and as of Saturday (when a girlfriend is coming to pick up all the products in my kitchen that contain gluten (and there are a lot)); the whole family is going to go on a gluten free diet for at least six months. Those of us that see no difference will go back to eating what they want, the rest of us will stay gluten free.

The book is geared towards a Celiac diagnosed person, but anyone who is following a gluten free diet for various reasons will find help and encouragement here.

Format: Paperback
I felt so lucky to stumble onto this book.

"Once considered a rare condition, celiac disease is now thought to be the most prevalent genetic disorder in the world," says author Danna Korn. She goes on to say that, "for every diagnosed celiac, 89 go undiagnosed."

This comprehensive resource really puts it all together. Divided into three basic sections, the book covers everything from: a definition of the disorder, related/associated disorders, how to talk to your doctor, lists of safe and unsafe foods, all about grains, menu planning, recipes, nutritional requirements, testing, the emotional side of CD and a host of other invaluable topics.

For some, a gluten-free diet is just a healthier choice. But for just over a million of us in the US, it isn't an option, it's a necessity. This book is a lifesaver in a health care environment that isn't as knowledgeable as it could be.

Format: Paperback
This book is a must have for celiacs. Since my husband was diagnosed, we have read many of the more popular books on celiac disease, and none of them have been nearly as helpful as this book. The tone the author uses is positive, and she doesn't use scare tactics to convince celiacs that they need to be careful with their diets, as many of the other books do! This book also contains more scientific information than any of the others, which will be appreciated by people who want to know exactly what is going on with their bodies. I would purchase this book first, and then follow up by ordering cookbooks, etc.

This book should be required reading for all medical doctors to prevent years of unnecessary suffering for yet-to-be-diagnosed Celiacs. I wish I had been told about this wonderful resource at the time my daughter was been diagnosed. It is the best source of information on Celiac Disease that I have found.

Since finding all of my kids were Celiac several months ago I have been reading lots and this is by far the most informative one. Why you won't get diagnosed, what symptoms you could have,asscociated illness and on and on. If you are newly diagnosed or an old pro there is lots to be learned in this book, so GO BUY IT!
