CNY Celiac Support Group
Helping People With Gluten Intolerance in the CNY Area Live a Happy and Healthy Gluten-Free Lifestyle!

Our Next Meeting
Date: September 14, 2014, 2 pm – 4 pm
Topic: Taking control of your health through foods and understanding your own unique “food energetic”
Speaker: Dr. Jennifer Orlowski

It will then go one step further and incorporate a much needed discussion on “food energetic” and why one diet plan is right for one person, but not the next. To truly find balance in our bodies through food choice we need to begin to decode which foods resonate best for our own individual constitutions
Dr. Orlowski received her doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Southwest College and was recently certified as a nutrition specialist. Based in Liverpool, NY, for the past eight years, she offers private consultations, classes and lectures. She is also a professor at SUNY Empire State College.
