Our bodies were never meant to consume the foods we eat these days. Your liver has a certain amount of capacity to process toxins from junk/processed foods. Some peoples livers are better than others which is why some people get the circles and others do not.
Most people will see some improvement with the under eye circles when they start to follow a gluten free diet because you eliminate flour. Flour is a big one for congesting the body.
There are many ways to sort the under eye circles. The first is to drink a couple of litres of water per day to help flush out some toxins. The second is to make sure you are getting rid of waste (using the toilet) 2 times a day and third a much more extreme one is to try eating a diet of nothing but clean meats, veg, fruit, nuts etc without any processed foods.
I used to have a problem with dark circles under my eyes, looked like I was either an all night partier or something like that and people always commented how tired I looked.
The dark circles were cured by me using the toilet more often.

If you still have the dark circles and positive antibodies, go back over your diet.
I was using vanilla that was not gluten free. Is there a chance you are getting cross contamination from your kitchen?

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

Physician's Formula makeup (which is gluten-free) makes an undereye concealer (which is yellow, but when light hits your skin after it's applied, dark circles are greatly minimized) that definitely helps. You can use it alone or under foundation--it makes for a very refreshed appearance!!!!
