Hi, I to am new to this forum. I have had Celiac for over 12 years now and have had all kinds of problems to over come. In my journey through this life long disease I also had problems with sleep. I found that there were many reasons why I always felt bad and couldn't sleep. Stress as well as the wrong foods and also the medications I took were contributing to my never feeling well. I stayed off all gluten including, oat, soy, rye, wheat, barley. And as I went along I found that there are so many hidden things and ingredients in foods that I really had to watch for especially soy. It is in almost every thing. I have to read every thing I buy. So be very careful when you buy products that are in cans or bottles, and get familiar with the other terms and wording that are also gluten. Such as modified food starch etc. I finally went to a naturpathic doctor in Phoenix and he had found that my adrenals were completely exhausted. That is why I was unable to sleep. I woke up all hours of the night. He put me on medications that would stimulate my adrenals and it took some time but finally worked. Now I sleep all night and feel rested and not foggy headed. I hope that every one who reads this and is apart of the celiac family will find heath and happiness.
Looking forward to talking to all of you soon. If you have any Questions or problems that you cant seem to over come maybe we can work together to find some answers.
Take care all of you. I have enjoyed being able to share my journeys with you.
