Short Video of Dr Alessio Fasano on Celiac Disease

At the beginning of June I attended the Celiac Disease Foundation Conference and had the pleasure of meeting and hearing Dr. fasano speak for the first time, he is remarkable.

Dr. Fasano is world renowned pediatric gastroenterologist and research scientist and founder of the Center for celiac research at Mass General, which is the leading treatment center for gluten relater disorders.

He is also wildly funny in the way he educates, brilliant and is akin to the Willy Wonka of the Celiac world.  Unfortunately he only had 45 minutes to speak, but I could have listened to him all afternoon.

His new book, Gluten Freedom, is available now and all proceeds go to Celiac research, which is pretty impressive.  I highly recommend the book if you are looking for any information on gluten, gluten disorders, Celiac, coping methods, shared stories, diagnosis or living the gluten free lifestyle.  Even though it has some technical language, it is very easy to read, with the most up to date information & studies, and I use if often as a reference guide.

Here is a short video I caught of him speaking, please excuse some of the bad filming and the siting of my feet.

    The sound quality was so poor i couldn’t understand a word. Is there a way you could clean it up and resend please? I am fascinated that he is so young and passionate about gluten

    1. Yes I know it is not the greatest but there are plenty of videos from him that are longer with better sound on youtube, just type in his name.

Hi, I’m Kirsten

Kirsten is a Registered Dietician in training, pursuing certification towards becoming a Registered Dietitian, and a Gluten Free Nutrition Consultant. She has a Bachelors of Science from Illinois State and and a Bachelors of Science from Metropolitan State University of Denver in Human Nutrition and Dietetics.

I was diagnosed w/ Celiac disease in 2010, my goal is to provide a path for healthy living to individuals who are seeking a tailored made lifestyle specific to them and their needs.

I believe that everyone is different, there’s not one diet that can work for everyone. The word Diet, is a short-term concept, let’s change diet into ‘lifestyle change’ instead and think long-term. Make healthier decisions not just today but for the years ahead of us as well. A lifestyle change is a journey not a sprint.

Living the gluten free lifestyle is not an easy one and can be very overwhelming: from grocery shopping and social events, to deglutening your own household. I will help you navigate the gluten-free maze with tips, tricks, humor, healthy recipes and more.
