Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2011
Acclaimed children’s author Tina Turbin, best known for her multi-award-winning Danny the Dragon children’s book series, recently made two radio appearances on Magnificent Menopause and Beyond—Embracing Midlife to talk about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet. Both of her radio interviews have been selected for broadcast on the major women’s radio station Heartbeat Radio for Women, a tremendous victory for the celiac community.
A passionate advocate for celiac disease, an autoimmune disease triggered by gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye, Turbin appeared on Magnificent Menopause and Beyond to speak with co-hosts and menopause specialists Gail Edgell and Carrie Pierce about the disease, the gluten-free lifestyle, and her new eBook, “Gluten and Your Aging Body,” available for sale on the author’s non-profit website, http://www.GlutenFreeHelp.info.
Magnificent Menopause and Beyond has been picked up by a leading women’s radio station, Heartbeat Radio for Women, based in Florida with 70,000 female listeners. The station is launching Edgell and Pierces’s program with their best 10 archived shows of their choosing. The co-hosts made sure to choose both of Turbin’s radio interviews to be featured. The program has additionally been picked up by a global health website, which has placed the show’s widget, containing Turbin’s two interviews, on their site.
Magnificent Menopause and Beyond covers a wide range of topics for 40+ women and welcomes male listeners as well. Their broadcasts cover subjects such as health and nutrition, beauty, finances, sexuality, and spirituality for midlife women featuring qualified professionals in these respective fields. Edgell is an exercise physiologist, author, and trainer, and Pierce is a licensed aesthetician, author and menopause skincare expert.
