About the webinar:
Following a gluten free diet is far more challenging than most practitioners realise. Mishaps and cross-contamination happen – but how serious are these inevitable events? In this webinar, Advanced APD and gluten-free nutrition specialist Dr Kim Faulkner-Hogg will highlight different approaches for gluten free eating for different people. Building on Kim’s presentation earlier in the year, ‘Is gluten free really 100% gluten free?‘, this webinar with interactive case studies explores the importance of individual gluten sensitivities, perception of treatment burden and the impact switching to a gluten free diet has on mental health and quality of life. Dr Kim will provide the ‘Pillars of Support’ to empower people to feel more comfortable and less anxious with their gluten free diet.
