Dealing with a Celiac diagnosis or similar gluten intolerance is a huge lifestyle change. It is hard to find foods to eat that are both safe and healthy. Celiac Disease is complex, affecting all areas of the body. I deal with joint pain, nutritional deficiencies, secondary food allergies, pre-osteoporosis, just to name a few. Being gluten free really is only the beginning.
When entrepreneur Kaitlin Puccio was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, she too recognized the need for correct and complete information. Her answer to this was creating a website called CeliaKaye.com. Bringing her experiences with Celiac Disease to the table was extremely helpful in creating a website where visitors can get wholesome information on gluten free living, exercise, and lifestyle changes that help improve one's mindset.
Ms. Puccio has also written a book called The Adventures of Celia Kaye, which is follows a young girl who is living with Celiac Disease. Celia avoids sharing the real reason she can't eat certain foods with her friends. She eventually learns that she doesn't need to avoid sharing her struggles with friends.
I really enjoyed sharing this book with my children because it explained my condition a little better to them since it was through the eyes of a child. We also have a child with suspected Celiac Disease, so he was able to better understand what happens to his body. It's one thing to suffer as an adult, but even harder as a child who doesn't need to be in pain.
The Adventures of Celia Kaye is available for purchase on Amazon.com.
About Kaitlin Puccio:
Ms. Puccio is the creative force behind Circles (Winner, Best Short, Hoboken International Film Festival; Nominee, Best Director, 30 Under 30 Film Festival); Philosopagus, a literary website dedicated to bridging the gap between analytic philosophy and creative writing; and Bent Frame, LLC, a film production and publishing company that delves into the world behind the glass and considers what lies beyond from a new perspective. Puccio defines her personal brand as one that is derived from a renaissance approach to the world: “I am always open to cross-training of the mind. I studied philosophy and French in college at NYU, and I make films. I founded Bent Frame, a production and publishing company. I write about health and entrepreneurship, and also write fiction, poetry, children’s books, and I love to collaborate with like minds because it allows me to explore and expand my own capacities.”
