My name is Lauren, friends know me as LEW and since you are here reading this, you may call me LEW :). Welcome to my blog, I am a Certified Athletic Therapist, Registered Massage Therapist and Registered Kinesiologist in BC, Canada. The biggest part of my life was the diagnosis of Celiac Disease in early 2017 after a trauma 6 months earlier.
Within this blog I will be talking all things Celiac Disease from how I was diagnosed, symptoms, treatments, diet, lifestyle, self reviewed medical research on the gut and CD, travel, recipes and what I am doing to heal my gut after a late diagnosis of CD. I will be completely raw and honest, and try to not leave anything out as I know this may help someone who has been newly diagnosed with CD or has known for a while but is in my same situation right now of still having symptoms.
I also have an Athletic Therapy section of the blog where I will talk about the other love of my life, my awesome career. Here you can expect write ups on exercise, health, therapy, conditions, and preventative measures.
Travel and adventure is another large part of my life. I will write about my travel adventures and share details of where I go, what I do, and how I travel as a Celiac.
My goal is to help even just one life by being open and writing about my on going challenges with Celiac Disease. Whether I am writing about a gluten free lifestyle, therapeutics, travel, my hiking adventures, sharing a workout or whichever comes to my mind, follow along and be inspired to learn something new.
