The Very Real and Deep Depression of Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is not just avoiding bread

Gluten is tough to avoid. It is in just about everything from bath products, lipsticks, to the foods you eat. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease of the gastrointestinal system. The most common trigger is wheat. Once you use a product containing wheat or wheat byproducts, your intestinal lining goes to war with intestinal tissues or villi. Nutrient absorption becomes a problem, and many other diseases start to take over your life.
