“Mayo Clinic Going Gluten-Free: Essential Guide to Managing Celiac Disease and Related Conditions” by Joseph A. Murray, MD

By | Nov 25, 2014

From the internet to news sources, conflicting information about managing celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity (‘gluten sensitivity’) is frequently circulated, causing loads of confusion for people trying to follow a medically necessary gluten-free diet. Frustrating, isn’t it?

Luckily, there are experts out there who have earned the trust of the gluten-related disorders community by sharing evidence-based information that is grounded in science and research. One such expert is the renowned Joseph A. Murray, MD of the Mayo Clinic and member of the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) Scientific/Medical Advisory Council. He just released a book called Mayo Clinic Going Gluten-Free, which covers gluten-related disorders from start to finish.

We’ve got our own copy here in the NFCA office!

Mayo Clinic Going Gluten-Free has a whopping 276 pages and 18 chapters of reliable information. Don’t be intimidated by the length of this book! Dr. Murray has done a fantastic job of keeping this resource light, yet informative. It is incredibly reader friendly – no medical jargon here! Even without fancy medical terms, this book clearly and intelligently describes celiac disease, gluten sensitivity and the gluten-free diet, but in a way that is easily understood by those of us without a medical background.

There’s a lot to love about Mayo Clinic Going Gluten-Free. My favorite part, though, is the final summary chapter, entitled “Moving Forward.” It covers learning to accept your diagnosis and how to take care of your whole self, not just treat a disease. Dr. Murray completely understands his audience; there’s so much more to living with a gluten-related disorder than just eating a gluten-free diet. His compassion and attention to other aspects of true wellness makes this book different than the others on the market.

Whether you’re newly diagnosed or have been diagnosed for years, you’ll learn something new from this book. And, since it’s written by such a renowned expert, you know you can trust the information you’ll read. Check out the names of the chapters to learn more about what you’ll learn.
