Allergies are a fact of life, especially food allergies. In the past there was a perception that food allergies were rare. Sure, there was the occasional peanut or tree nut allergy but, it didn’t seem like there were the same amount of food allergy sufferers.
The reality is that there have always been food allergy sufferers. Today doctors and other health care professionals have better testing and the internet has provided better communities and awareness for food allergy sufferers. Yes, there has been a huge step forward in the diagnosis and awareness of allergies but, still many questions remain.
How do people separate the hype behind of a “Paleo” or grain-free diet and actual Celiac disease? What foods are available to serve friends or family who do have food allergies which would seem severely restrictive to normal cooking? Who might a person need to talk to if they believe a food allergy might be present in their life or the life of a loved one?
For three years now the Gluten & Allergen Free Wellness Event has come to the Hartford area to help address these, and other questions about food allergies. The event returns to the Holiday Inn in East Hartford, CT for a 4th year from 10am-3pm on Saturday, September 30th! At this event attendees will get to sample great gluten and allergen-free foods from a variety of great vendors. Popular authors and bloggers such as Paige Lawrence (Author, Gluten-Free Ghouls), CJ Williams (Blogger/Author, Tumbling Gluten Free), and Mary Jules Herrington who will be revealing her 3rd gluten-free “how-to” book at the event! Most importantly, there are certified health experts, coaches, and community members present in order to help de-mystify the food allergen world and to help people to better understand the symptoms and impacts of these conditions.
Tickets are $10 for Adults, $8 for seniors (with valid ID), and children under 13 are free. Parking is free. Normally tickets can be purchased at the Gluten & Allergen Free Wellness Event website at http://www.gfafwellnessevent.com/ or can be purchased at the door.
