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
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.
