What we might learn from Robin Williams

Thank you Robin Williams… we love you to Never-land and the moon and back.

When I attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition several years ago, my most memorable moment was a man in his 50’s from the audience, accepting the microphone from the beloved founder of IIN, Joshua Rosenthal.

Holding back his tears, this student and now my colleague, told us that he was standing there that day because of IIN. His father, brother and uncle had all committed suicide!

Because of our education at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, he now understood the correlation between gluten and depression! He was living proof that omitting gluten from his diet had led him to a life without depression and the medication it typically required. There weren’t many dry eyes in that conference hall

On a personal level, my one daughter is 100% gluten free due to severe emotional crying when ingested, and my one little granddaughter due to extreme emotional outbursts and crying for no reason before we realized what was happening!

I share this today in hopes it will help one person understand themselves or another a little better. What if, just what if a life could be changed around from the depths of despair?? What if avoiding all gluten and the offending products could really change the direction of a life? I ask you to ponder this story…

Many Blessings, Coach Deb
