daytime10 replied to daytime10's topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)I don't think I am going to get diagnosed, I don't care honestly I just woke up and I can already tell that this is working, my eczema shows a small reduction and the itching is rare compared to all the time! Just by listening to my body I can tell that this is what I should have done a long time ago. Natural Medicine has definitely made an impression on me, I am beginning to think that Western Medicine is all about pushing drugs and making bonuses and money from Drug Companies. I cannot even begin to think about how much money I have spent on Hydrocortizone, Immunodepressants, Body Lotions, Creams all suppose to get rid of my eczema. Eczema is treatable, its your body telling you that something is wrong inside with what your doing... ignoring it or covering it with drugs will not fix it.
daytime10 posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Hey just wanted to thank everyone this has been a great resource over the last couple days as I start my journey of being gluten-free. Here is my story I am 27 For the last 5 years I have suffered from terrible eczema. No one has been able to determine what was causing this, I had it on my arms, my face, legs, back, knees, private areas. It was soo itchy at times I couldn't sleep and I would constantly itch all day. I cannot begin to describe how much this has destroyed my confidence in myself and my body. I finally had enough of the Dermatologist prescribing me hydrocortizone and telling me there is no cure, I tried a naturopath. Within an hour she was pretty certain that I had a gluten sensitivity using an allergy test that I have never seen or heard of (I thought she was crazy at first, but she nailed all the allergies that I know about cats etc.) She gave me some supplements to take and told me to go Gluten Free starting today and to see how I feel. I am currently on day 2 of being Gluten Free... the itching has stopped, my skin shows some reduction of eczema but still I am amazed. I am currently having some of the withdrawal symptoms everyone mentions (brain fog, super tired, gassy). I looked at the symptoms of being celiac and I cannot believe how much I have suffered since I was a small child that would link back to this -Chronic Nose Bleeds since I was 5 -Anxiety (Has gotten worse since early 20's) -Cannot gain weight (135 for the last 10 years) -Insomnia at times -Super tired after eating large meals -Lack of energy -Depression -Canker sores randomly -Extreme hunger and thirst -Pins and needles in my feet and hands -Eczema Finally I think I have determined what has been causing me all this suffering over the last 20 years, I am excited to finally have control over my body! I hope the results continue, and that I can get used to the prices of gluten-free bagels and bread :@ lol
