Women’s Gluten Free Health Summit

Does this video describe you? I also didn’t have all the answers I needed when people asked me about my eating lifestyle. My tip…join this Woman’s Gluten Free Summit to learn the answers to your burning questions on why we all should be eating the grain-free way!

I had the honor of being interviewed by Jennifer from the Gluten Free School not once but twice now and her passion shines through in her voice! Jennifer is a very special woman who specializes in teaching gluten-sensitive women the basics while also diving into complex gluten sensitive autoimmune issues. She leaves you with empowering steps to get healthy.

Her site is the number one spot for those living a gluten free life seeking a community and information about various gluten-related conditions such as alopecia, Addison’s disease, Celiac disease, Graves’ disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Multiple sclerosis, Myasthenia gravis, Pernicious anemia, Reactive arthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren syndrome, Systemic lupus erythematosus, Type I diabetes.

Jennifer Fugo started the Gluten Free School after her personal journey with gluten. This lifestyle is more than just about a diet… it’s a revolution!

She is now hosting a Women’s Gluten Free Health Summit that I had the honor of being one of the educators. If you are interested in signing up for this life-changing event, click HERE. You will not be disappointed!

  • I always have a super hard time convincing my family to go gluten free because they do not have celiac disease…I just don’t know what to tell them anymore!

        I have the same issue. Both of my kids (20yo daughter, and 17yo son) admit they show signs of gluten intolerance, but neither is willing to give up the foods that they enjoy so much. Even when I offer something just as good (or with your help, even better!) they would rather spend their own money and go get something.
        In my house we are gluten free, all food is gluten free, but I only offer grain free low carb, I can’t get them to try it. Darn those silly kids, once they can drive and get their own food, they are gone!

        I don’t know why this silly site won’t let me post the first time! My daughter has asthma, irritable bowel, and has all the symptoms of both lactose intolerance and gluten intolerance, my son has acne and stomach issues. Both have some of the classic symptoms of gluten intolerance at the very least, however my daughter is 20 and my son is 17. They make their own money and drive, so monitoring their food and enforcing a diet is impossible. All I can do is fix great food here, and remove all gluteny choices from my house. The better I do, the more they seem to dive into the Honeycomb! It’s depressing. To know that one silly little change could improve their quality of life, but that they are rebelling simply to rebel is hurtful to watch.

          You sound like my story. I have 4 teens. One 19 yr old who is living on her own and has suffered the most. Gall bladder issues, no energy, low iron, gall bladder attacks-they have done every test on her and came back with.. nothing. Gall bladder is functioning “okay”. I have encouraged her to go gluten free but she’s 19, doing her own thing, college etc. They learn the hard way and then they listen. It’s the best we can do. My son is starting to show signs and has given up his life “cereal” after he had an attack that left him nauseus, no energy. I didn’t think he would ever give it up but he did and I didn’t push him on it, just mentioned he could be becoming gluten sensitive. I offer them the Maria way and slowly we’re transitioning. I’ve been sneaking coconut oil onto the peanut butter (natural) and Jelly (no hfcs) sandwiches. They love Maria’s amazing bread and cinnamon rolls. My youngest is a vegetarian so we struggle with that.. or shall I say a non meat eater. My 15 yr old is showing signs of lactose intolerance. These children, were all perfectly healthy until about 2 years ago. I say it all the time, it’s in the food, it’s in the food. I have them taking magnesium, Vitamin D, digestive enzymes for a couple and probiotics. Little by little things are changing. Just keep offering the good choices, casually mentioning the results and encouraging a food diary.

      Miss Linda, I have the same trouble and my 24 year old has ulcerative colitis. hang in there, keep setting a good example and keep getting educated to teach them so when they are ready, you are ready to explain things… my extremely picky, picky, picky husband is making tiny, tiny changes, I am shocked and so thrilled all of that without me preaching to him. my daughter is coming around slowwwwwwwwwwly, she had a shamrock shake this morning ….. (I want her off the remicaid) small steps for those who are not ready. hang in there, it is painfully frustrating to me to see them eat bad foods. I feel ya sister! take care… my heart was to encourage you…

    • Lauren Romeo MD says:

      Tell them they will gain a feeling of good health like never before! It worked on my family. When they finally came around they were astounded to find they didn’t know how good it feels to be de-fatigued and feeling great! Best of luck!

      Read the wheat belly book! They give a lot of information.

  • Liz says:

    I love being gluten free. I occasionally crave something sweet like ice cream or a peanut butter cup, yet I never want to go back to eating gluten. Once it was all out of my body, I didn’t look back. I got creative with my meals and now I crave zucchini noodles and Parmesan crisps!

  • Pam Marie says:

    ..I am with you..I am not as ‘good’ as I should be, but have been following gluten-free high fat medium protein low carb for years..and my husband and now 20-year old daughter are finally getting it!! It has been a long journey and I’ve been teased and picked at, but kept on doing what I was doing..I learned finally to just ‘shut up’ and be an example..hopefully it is starting to pay off 🙂

    Maria,
    I have a question about Dairy. I just listened to your podcast with Jimmy Moore, and should I not eat dairy? I have your slow cooker cookbook (which I love,) and am currently cooking a recipe that calls for cream cheese. Have you found that dairy is problematic for most people? I love butter and cheese so I’m just wondering. Thanks.

    • cemmerich says:

      I have clients go dairy free for the first month or two on this lifestyle to help them heal and lose weight faster. After their villi in their intestines have healed (damaged by high carbs and grains), then they can add dairy back in. 🙂

    FYI Link for the summit goes to a page not found error.

  • Rian says:

    I never had a problem with wheat–until I stopped eating it and all grains about five months ago. My arthritis is a distant memory, my asthma is much better, I feel ten years younger and have lost 20 pounds (so far), and I have not had a migraine in all that time! Unbelievable.

    Maria, I have enjoyed your books very much–good reads. Thank you.
