Hello all you Celiacs,

I posted the article, "When Mistakes Happen, Focus on Comfort", with the best of intentions, but the feedback has been pretty controversial, taking me completely by surprise.  Obviously these recommendations are not going to help everyone.  Anyone who knows anything about Celiac Disease knows that the array of possible symptoms varies tremendously.  I am also unhappy that people seem to be trying to one-up each other on the misery scale, and that needs to stop, please.  We should all be trying to help and support each other, and part of that is to validate each person's suffering.  There are ways to decrease one's extreme sensitivity to things that offend our immune system.  Integrated Manual Therapy (IMT) is one that I hope people with severe gluten intolerance will try to explore, as I personally have received tremendous benefit from this therapy.

As always, Celiac.com welcomes your comments (see below).
