The NFCA (National Foundation for Celiac Awareness) will host its latest gluten-free lifestyle webinar on October 17, 2010 at 8:00 PM EST. This latest webinar is titled “It’s Not Just In Your Head: The Psychological Impacts of Celiac Disease“. Marie-Nathalie Beaudoin, Ph.D will be explaining the link between Celiac Disease and brain fog, anxiety and depression as well as sharing case-based testimonials that establish the lifestyle connection.
Description from the NFCA site:
It’s well documented that celiac disease affects multiple systems of the body, but what do we know about its impact on our minds? Between the signs and symptoms of celiac, the complications of undiagnosed disease and the adjustments to a gluten-free diet after diagnosis, we can’t help but notice the effects not only on our physical health, but also our mental well-being.
Marie-Nathalie Beaudoin, Ph.D is the Training Director at Bay Area Family & Training Associates. Both Marie-Nathalie and her son have Celiac Disease. Since being diagnosed, she researches & writes to help increase awareness.
The webinar will be sponsored by Blue Diamond Growers and is free of charge. Please make sure to register by clicking here.
If you missed the last webinar the NFCA and Blue Diamond Growers put on, you can see a replay here. The webinar, “The Gluten Free Effect on Athletes-Improving Performance Through Diet”, has a lot of useful information.
If you haven’t had a chance to browse around the NFCA website, now is the time. There are so many wonderful resources, tips, recipes, videos and much more. I love the symptom checklist for those who suspect they may have Celiac Disease. This list can be printed upon completion & then taken to the doctor for further evaluation.
