5.0 out of 5 stars
This book grounded me after I was diagnosed!, Dec 8 2000
I've only known I am a celiac for a couple of months. By great luck, I saw a review of this book two days after my diagnosis, while I was visiting in the Seattle area. Ms. Hagman brought me into the reality of living as a celiac and did so with solid and thorough information. This book is so much more than I expected. I really have found more help in it than in the diet the doctor gave me-the book being far more thorough. It's also encouraging because the author is a celiac and she offers years of experience and deep knowledge of the subject. I'm buying another copy now for my niece, who tried the diet after hearing about my diagnosis and has had immediate relief. With Bette Hagman's books, I hope many more people will find out about celiac disease sooner and be spared years of deterioration! For me it offers hope of restored health and a realistic view of how that may come about. It's a very practical and readable resource!
