Episode 17
Erika Demmer from Celiac and the Beast
 
Erika was diagnosed in 2009. She is a full-blown Celiac with a sprinkling of gastroparesis, osteopenia, hypermobility disorder, endometriosis, thyroid shenanigans, and a whole host of other health issues. She didn't realize that cosmetics could have wheat as the main ingredient, but when she realized that most of her cosmetics contained wheat, she threw out most of her shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and cosmetics and started with new, fresh gluten-free cosmetics.
 
Erika doesn't love cooking (aka she throws a lot of my failed dishes out). To eat, she uses a lot of gluten-free products. Erika is always looking for the newest gluten-free food item to review on her website.
 
She says she lives with a "great dude" who is super into the gluten-free lifestyle – even though he is not gluten-sensitive 
 
In her past life, Erika's career landed in the PR, advertising, and corporate market, research. In this life, Erika is part of she knows.comexperts program, is the managing editor for Gluten Free and More Magazine, subject matter expert and lifestyle speaker, she has appeared on live promotional tv spots, is a member of the New Hope Blogger Network and writes her blog on her website celiac and the beast.comThis year alone, she appears in 7 different cities to speak on the topic of being gluten-free and living the gluten-free lifestyle. 
 
We talk about food shaming, what it means to be celiac, and how Erika has found her special someone who takes care of her through thicker than thin! What it takes to find a significant other who accepts you for all you're worth and all the wrong times you can have from celiacs (and another sickness too!).
