I’m Connie Curtis, The Gluten and Food Allergy Specialist.
I will support you in making this lifestyle change, I have been down this path.
I can help you through the overwhelm frustration, loneliness, and confusion.
I provide resources, coaching, and support for women newly diagnosed with gluten intolerance and food allergies to help them feel less overwhelmed and back on their way to healthy and thriving.
For years I ate the ‘normal’ (American Diet). I was just a regular person. Let’s be honest I ate crappy all the time…and I didn’t think much of it. While for years I felt really stressed, hungry all the time, foggy headed and couldn’t find the cause while it just kept getting worse. My first doctor diagnosed me with gluten intolerance, a few other food allergies, hashimoto’s, and celiac disease. At this time, this was a revelation and something completely new to me- a whole new way of eating, shopping, and living. Sure, I felt a little hesitant but it would be worth it. I thought ‘ok’ to feel better, I’ll simply buy gluten free labels from now on. No problem. I’ll make a few product changes. I can do this.
But I soon learned I wasn’t out of the woods just yet. I was doing everything according to the ‘traditional gluten free diet’ and really following it…and I even started feeling a little better (finally) but still something wasn’t quite right. Here I had already poured so much of my time into making the grocery shopping switches I was traditionally supposed to and other ‘gluten free’ to dos yet I was still feeling sick. I still felt stuck, unclear, frustrated and confused. I thought I should be further along.
I started researching. I discovered and sought out expert professionals who cared as much about me getting healthy as I did. I learned why I wasn’t yet feeling better and why the ‘traditional gluten free diet’ was keeping me sick. I began to make the necessary changes and began Really feeling better so much so that in fact it changed my life. I no longer felt exhausted and foggy-headed, I was more productive, had energy, no nausea or bloating, and stopped getting sick frequently. Today I help my clients and others diagnosed with gluten intolerance and food allergies to do the same- to go from just surviving to thriving through better education and by being in-the-know about the real changes they can and need to make.
Did you know: Just because you don’t see it or feel it immediately doesn’t mean that gluten isn’t having a detrimental effect on your body and the way you feel? Everybody shows it differently. The ‘traditional gluten free diet’ can keep a lot of people sick- migraines, arthritis, skin conditions, stomach aches, abdominal pain, and Crone’s disease can all be hidden signs of a sensitivity to gluten. The good news? There is something you can do about it outside of that “traditional gluten free” that you so often hear about… but it requires knowing more than just reading labels. It’s more than a diet, it’s a lifestyle and mindset change but it’s one that can be made easy and one that, with the right know-how you really can enjoy.
