Today’s client success story touches my heart in so many ways. Meaghan is a type I diabetic. The type of control she needs to have over her food extends well beyond feeling fat or bloated. It’s a health reality that requires wisdom.
Accepting and managing things that have happened to us for no known reason is the spiritual work of a lifetime. And Meaghan does this with such grace and beauty.

If you are struggling with type 1 diabetes or know someone who is, please let them know that there’s been some initial discovery that type 1 diabetes and celiac disease play on the same gene.
