What People are Saying About This

John Gray

"A breakthrough book that offers you a road map towards better mental and physical health-providing nutritional insights that even your doctor may not know!"--(Dr. John Gray, author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus)

John Brimhall

"Dr. Bauer's book is an answer to the prayers of thousands, the missing piece of the puzzle in their health or lack of it. Allergies and sensitivities are a common thread in severe health conditions. If the cause is celiac disease or wheat or gluten sensitivity, nothing will solve the problem until the gluten is totally removed from the diet. Well written and to the point, this book is a must for physicians and patients alike!"--(Dr. John Brimhall, author of Solving the Health Puzzle with the Six Steps to Wellness)

Jax Peters Lowell

"Don't let this slender volume fool you! Packed with truths and a gimlet-eyed view of the path to diagnosis, Eydi Bauer's journey to the gluten-free life connects the dots with a woman's heart and a physician's wisdom."--(Jax Peters Lowell, author of The Gluten-Free Bible, Against the Grain, and No More Cupcakes & Tummy Aches)
