As you know, treating celiac disease with a gluten-free diet can be quite a challenge, as even just the smallest exposure to gluten can cause damage to the small intestine and make us celiac quite sick.
With this in mind, Dr. Ali Keshavarzian, vice chairman of medicine and gastroenterologist at Rush University Medical Center, has been looking into the effectiveness of mind/body techniques in the treatment of celiac disease.
Celiac patients who are enrolled into the celiac disease and mind/body study at Rush will be randomly assigned to two course assignments for a period of eight weeks. If you’d like to find out more information about the study or to enroll, you can contact Dr. Sunana Sohi at 312-942-1551 or Sunana_Sohi@rush.edu.
