In this You Tube video, Dr. Mark Hyman emphasizes the importance for Celiacs to stay off of gluten so as to avoid serious health problems. He also theorizes why he thinks that Celiac disease is increasingly diagnosed.
Finally, he also offers advice, contrary to CCA recommendations, that you start a gluten-free diet without testing. A great video, especially for those newly diagnosed.
From his web site: “Dr. Hyman, M.D., is Chairman of the Institute for Functional Medicine, and was awarded its 2009 Linus Pauling Award for Leadership in Functional Medicine. He is currently medical editor at the Huffington Post and on the Medical Advisory Board at The Doctor Oz Show. He is on the Board of Directors of The Center for Mind-Body Medicine, and a faculty member of its Food As Medicine training program. He is also on the Board of Advisors of Memhet Oz’s HealthCorps, which tackles the obesity epidemic by “educating the student body” in American high schools about nutrition, fitness and mental resilience.”
