Announcing "Gluten Nation"

New Book Unveils the Shocking Role Gluten Plays in Many Major Ailments

SAN DIEGO, CA and LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - December 9, 2009) - Restorative Remedies LLC today announced a new book, "Gluten Nation" -- exploring the many ways gluten can wreak havoc in the lives of well over 20 million Americans who are gluten sensitive. The book retails for $17.95 US, $19.12 Canada, and is available on Amazon and at http://www.restorativeremedies.com. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye and barley. "In the world of science and medicine, it is widely known that wheat is the primary cause of celiac disease, a debilitating chronic inflammatory disease affecting the intestine. What is not so widely known is that gluten sensitivity runs a spectrum -- only the worst cases becoming celiac disease," says Jackie Townsend Konstanturos, CEO of Restorative Remedies and co-author of "Gluten Nation." "This grain of pain is a contributing factor in many illnesses, including autoimmune diseases, arthritis, autism, ADHD, bipolar disorder, diabetes, cancer, fibromyalgia and more."

The book is coauthored with Alex Shikhman, M.D., PhD. Dr. Alex, as his patients know him, is one of the leading clinicians and researchers in the field of rheumatology. A former member of Scripps Clinic Division of Rheumatology and a faculty member of the Division of Arthritis Research at The Scripps Research Institute, Dr. Shikhman is the founder of the Institute for Specialized Medicine and heads the Science and Medical Group at Restorative Remedies.

The nutritional guidance for the book was provided by Mary Lyons Collard, MS, RD, RCEP. Mary is a registered dietitian, board certified in sports dietetics, and certified as a registered clinical exercise physiologist with the American College of Sports Medicine. She has over 22 years' experience as a dietitian.

Along with case studies based on true stories and the science of gluten sensitivity, "Gluten Nation" will give the reader a clear step by step path to getting started on their gluten-free diet. Also included are recipes that are not only gluten-free, but also delicious.
