Welcome to our Blogs!
Dr Vikki Petersen is co-author of the book, “The Gluten Effect” – the book that brought gluten sensitivity to the mainstream. She is also co-founder of HealthNOW Medical Center in Sunnyvale, Ca.
After “The Gluten Effect” was published Dr Petersen was deluged with questions from readers across the US and from around the world. She began by writing to each person individually but it didn’t take long to realize that it wasn’t going to be possible to keep up.
As a solution, she chose to start writing a blog and later began taping youtube videos upon request from her followers. This blog is designed to be educational and supportive to those who are already diagnosed with gluten intolerance, be it celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, as well as those who are wondering if gluten may be contributing to their health problems.
Enjoy the blog and please send Dr Vikki your questions and comments. She truly loves to hear from you. The health and well-being of you, your family and friends are the entire reason Dr Vikki does what she does!
