Hi, I’m Laura,
I’m an army veteran, a nurse, CNHP (Natural Health Professional) and most importantly a mom of a child with celiac. I started on this Celiac journey with my daughter over 6 years ago. My then two year old reminded me of one of those children on the “save the child” commercials with the distended bellies looking like she’s 9 months pregnant, and short stature for her age.
With the blessing of a great nurse practitioner who ran a celiac panel in addition to checking for allergies I started down the road of being a mama with a celiac kid. I learned that it’s a journey that is full of ups and downs, adventures all mixed in one. Over time we created a sense of normalcy and routine that allows my daughter to grow, flourish without being overwhelmed.
