Healthier without Wheat (Amazon)

The world would be a better place if all the doctors were as well educated about gluten as Dr. Stephen Wangen. Unfortunately many of us suffering from Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have had to take matters into our own hands to figure out what is making us sick. Dr. Wangen goes into great detail about how to get a proper diagnosis of Celiacs or Gluten Intolerance, and then gives tips on how to proceed with treatment. Many additional resources are provided in the appendix and the book is supported by a 45 page bibliography, meaning the good doctor did his research.

Initially I set this book aside because I was turned off by the cover, thinking the information was as outdated as the lame graphic. It just goes to show, never judge a book by its cover! This is the most informative book that I have read thus far about gluten sensitivity. The research is current and so are the resources. I must say that the author does shamelessly plug his own website and other book a few times, but it doesn’t seem to distort the overall message. I would like to have read more research relating gluten sensitivity, Celiac Disease, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue.
