Barbara Griffin, NMD, CNC, owner of New Vitality Health Foods, Inc. and store manager, Diana Sourek, MS, CNC, have recently completed courses and training, as Certified Gluten Practitioners. This designation ensures that they are trained and can serve as valuable resources for gluten sensitivity and celiac disease for the community.

“Gluten is a composite formed from several different proteins. It is found most commonly in wheat and other related grains, such as barley and rye. Adding texture and a characteristic chewiness to baked goods, gluten is used in a wide variety of other foods as a thickener and binder, flavor enhancer, and protein supplement,” shared Barbara Griffin, NMD, CNC.

Dr. Griffin continued, “Some people can develop intolerance to these proteins. Over 55 diseases have been linked to eating gluten. A gluten-free diet often helps to alleviate symptoms caused by this intolerance and prevents further damage to the body. The medical community is now widely accepting the findings that avoiding gluten can help improve many auto immune diseases, as well as attention deficit disorder and autism in children. Celiac disease is an actual gluten allergy.”

New Vitality Health Foods, Inc. has been serving the Chicagoland community for the past 24 years. Each member of the New Vitality Health Foods team possesses extensive knowledge and training. Earning the Certified Gluten Practitioner designation further adds to the level of help and expertise the team provides for its customers.

New Vitality Health Foods, Inc. is a true resource center. We not only have a wide variety of allergy-free foods and nutritional supplements, but the staff who are trained to respond to customer questions, and help guide them toward improved health.”
