I love their newsletter and great website. All of thier work is very professional and for the members and individuals with celiac disease. They are truly for the clients and work for the good of individuals with celiac disease
I do not have celiac disease, but my friends do and I have seen, first hand the impact of this volunteer based organization. I have been in the CSA office when the toll free phone has been ringing off the wall with people needing help, asking questions about their disease. The wonderful, caring staff work very hard to make everyone that contacts them feel important. I have also worked to help with the educational offerings that CSA distributes. They have a great collection of printed material and an extremly popular website. I know many use and trust the CSA Product Listing. Truly, CSA members live the CSA motto-"Celiacs Helping Celiacs!"
In 2005 I sought help from CSA because no other treatment could be found for my various painful and worsening symptoms. Through CSA I finally found answers and relief from my symptoms CSA's outreach tells medical and lay-persons alike that gluten in wheat, rye, barley, cross-contaminated oats and all the derivites therefrom, is what sickens. Their research, compilation of data and constant updates on treatment strategies truly saves lives and reduces suffering. It takes a great deal of work to explain elusive celiac disease, to dispel the misconceptions of what CD is and what causes it. But, through CSA's efforts our nation becomes healthier one person at a time. Funding for CSA to continue research and awareness is especially crucial!
CSA has done a tremendous job helping the public understand Celiac Disease. This non-profit group has a wonderful website full of a plethora of helpful information for both those who are newly diagnosed and those who have had CD for a while and need guidance.
I love their motto! Celiacs helping Celiacs.
I was diagnosed with celiac disease in the early 1940s. I discovered the Celiac Sprue Association in the 1980s and joined immediately. The organization has been a tremendous help in my disease education as well as member support. I joined the board in the early 1990s and have never worked with a group of more dedicated people. The organizations primary goal is to help create a better life for those with celiac disease and related illnesses and sensitivities. The organization has over 130 chapters, 140 Resource units and approximately 7-8.000 members world wide. It is the largest member based celiac organization in the United States.
This organization for individuals with celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis is really a dedicated and caring group to work with and at a very professional level. They have a motto of "Celiacs Helping Celiacs" and they really do just that. I have learned much from their website and the many free materials they distribute. They have a wonderful newsletter and I would reccomend buying their CSA Product Listing. It is the bible for people with celiac disease. Thank you, thank you, thank you CSA.
I found out about this organization in the 1980s. Having been originally diagnosed in the 1940s and again in the 1960s, I was looking for help. CSA was able to help me with my diet and by my attending their national conferences and local support groups, I learned even more about my disease. This experience enabled me to better communicate with my physician and take control of my illness.
