Shelly's personal story, woven throughout the book, adds interest and a personal appeal, but never attempts to substitute anecdote for the hard science she relies on.Read more ›
I have been doing research on Gluten Intolerance for a long time, and I've run into a lot of references that keep me wondering and searching for more answers. Which is natural since the disease is just starting to be understood, but many of the books I've read are vague and don't inspire confidence.
Shelly doesn't have all the answers either, but she is very forthright about it. She not only covers the vast amount of information that is available, but points out where research is lacking, and demonstrates why a lot of the information you hear about gluten intolerance is incomplete. And she includes stress as a trigger, a factor that can't be overlooked when explaining why people without symptoms still need to be concerned, and why symptoms sometimes don't appear until later in life.
The research is well documented in an extensive bibliography, which assures me that I'm not just getting opinions. Shelly does present her opinions, too. But since she is in the medical field-a registered nurse for 21 years including 5 years in gastroenterology-and she has lived successfully for 6 years with Celiac Disease herself, I feel her opinions are well-informed and worth listening to.
The book has extensive chapters that cover in detail the many aspects of gluten intolerance. In addition to general information, sections include:
1) Medical explanations of what Celiac Disease is, current theories about non-Celiac gluten intolerance, and a call for more research.
2) Possible symptoms and indicators of gluten intolerance, diseases that have been shown to be related to it, and information on allergies.Read more ›
I am big on getting information that is research based - not opinion based - and this book is BIG on research with over 100 pages of references! Thank you Shelly for taking the time to put together such an amazing resource!
