Who is Selena?
I’m a Registered Dietitian living with celiac disease. I was handed the diagnosis from my MD with nothing other than the words, “well, you have celiac disease, just google the diet” and out the door I went. Sound familiar? Unfortunately, it is a far too common situation and that's why I started Healthbean Nutrition.
Luckily, my background as a Dietitian proved very helpful but living with this condition day in and day out, gave me tremendous insight into the challenges of living with a chronic illness. It is through my unique experience as a dietitian and patient that led to the development of protocols and strategies that, not only, improved my own life, but live on to improve the lives of my clients.
"I contacted Selena when I still wasn't feeling well a year after my celiac diagnosis. I'd read so much on the Internet I thought I knew everything I needed to know. I was wrong. Selena has important advice on how to do GF properly (it's not as straightforward as I thought) and for regaining your health. She is organized, punctual, and professional. And she has celiac, so she gets it. I think a lot of us, by the time we're diagnosed, have had more than our share of health care practitioners and may not want to bother with a dietitian. Selena played a crucial role in my recovery, and I would highly recommend her, whether you're newly diagnosed or just trying to feel better."~ Charlene (long distance celiac disease client)
