My Integrative and Functional Nutrition training (see above diagram), taught me to expect the body to take one month to heal for each year that you’ve experienced sickness. That’s why it may take several months to a few years to finally wholly recover from having developed Celiac. In many cases the time of initial reactivity is unknown. It often takes 7-10 years to get an accurate diagnosis. (DO NOT START A GLUTEN-FREE DIET BEFORE GETTING TESTED). Check here of an in-home, accurate Celiac test: https://imaware.health/?aff=9
After Celiac is finally diagnosed, it will take some time to heal your gut (small intestine). The good news is the cells lining of your gut turn over and replicate quickly, allowing quick healing. Many people feel better within a few weeks (or few days) after removing gluten from their diet.
The Gluten-Free Diet is the first place to start.
Don’t be discouraged. You can’t expect to get all the information you need to be healed, in the first week, and feel better after a one-hour discussion with a Dietitian / Nutritionist. There are many things to learn about and consider.
It’s a little like eating an elephant; you can only take one bite at a time. Each day there is something new to learn; take one step at a time, join a support group, and keep moving forward. But yes, you can heal your gut, feel better, improve your health, and live a thoroughly adventurous life.
The above discussed explains the philosophy behind why I only offer packages with multiple sessions.
For your convenience, I offer a secure HIPPA compliant Virtual Counseling Service to help you have the best chance at restoring your health. Virtual sessions are very convenient. You will not have to drive across town or fight with traffic to come to an office. Once we have a working relationship, we can meet by phone as well.
