Many here have done the parasite cleanse by Humaworm, including myself. My naturopath read through the information I showed him, and told me it was better than what he had been using with his patients, and he was switching.

It is MUCH cheaper than any other parasite cleanse I have seen, and very effective. And yes, it is perfectly safe to do for somebody with celiac disease.

You really need to do a cleanse if you have parasites, or you won't get better.

Priobiotics are good for all of us. Just make sure they are gluten-free. It isnt a bad idea to do a parasite cleanse. Your naturapath doesnt offer this? That would be odd. A lot of peeps on here like Humaworm, but they arent shipping right now. You could try Renew Life Paragon. It is gentle.

Thanks ladies(?)

I was not sure if the whole parasite thing is a big scam my hubby thinks I need to do it to feel better too

Yeh my naturalpath does it but it is like pulling teeth to get her to do it for me??? my hubby thinks she worries that if I feel better between the gluten-free diet and the cleans that I will not see her as often and hence less $$ in her pocket cause for the last yr I have been seeing her weekly much $$$$ in her pocket mine on the other hand not so full any more...he-he-he

So you would recomend the parasite cleans and it is ok for my intestines even if I am C I am affraid it will back up more!!! sorry for too much info..:)

It will back up LESS!

Once a week....STOP!!!!....that is a co-dependent relationship....You shouldnt need to see a practitioner more than once a month at most. She is out for $$$ if she is the one having you come back weekly. Now if YOU are the one asking to come back weekly....then you cannot blame her. This is just my opinion. Of course do what feels best for you. :)

The cleanse will help your C. No worries.

Best of luck with it and keep us posted!

I totally agree with you it usually was me as I had been feeling so terrible and scared she gave me a lot of support and an ear to listen my GP has taken an indefinite leave....so she was out but yeh for me it has been 3 weeks and I have not made an apt except that I am thinking of seeing her to take me throught the cleanse I always have these weird reactions to things escpecially foods (this all just started in the last year) like asthma breathing and anxiety but the more I have been reading and learning this is also symptoms of both Gluten issues and parasites!!!! thank you for your honest opinion I would not have asked if i wanted fluff :) it is great to hear...

I also have also mentioned under pre diagnosing, I have just started taking probiotics and essentual enzymes. I believe it is working??? but I also get soooo hungry. I take a couple bites and get nausea.

Did parasites show up on a test? Is that why you get so hungry?

:o

WOW! that would creep me out seeing them. I would be worried too. BUT I would want to get them out of me! The nutritionist said this would not hurt a bit to do the cleanse even if my test was negative.

    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      In light of the studies that found some probiotics that are labeled gluten-free yet tested over 20ppm I wouldn't touch them. Now those would be the powder or pill forms. Yogurt is not affected by that. Since you don't have a problem with dairy then I would say eat some yogurt every day. I like Chobani Greek because it has more kinds of cultures. Remember now that powder or pill forms of probiotics do not come under the gluten-free labeling law. The same for OTC & prescription meds. You need to check every single one of those. There are a few online sites where you can check things like that or ask here but as far as prescription meds -- call the manufacturer EVERY TIME. I also wanted to tell you in case you didn't already know that since celiac is genetic and can present at ANY age then all your first degree relatives need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms and immediately if symptoms present between the 2 year periods. As far as the digestive enzymes go, I tried Digest Gold for a short time & it really didn't seem to do anything for me however I will say I had a lot of issues going on at the time so I might not know if they helped or not. I decided to quit them in order to take that out of the equation so I could try to pin down what was causing me distress. The fewer things in the mix you know. I have heard people report the same as your consultant said. Some say they helped & some say they didn't. Remember Jammy, you're just in the beginning stages. I KNOW you want to heal & heal FAST. Been there, done that! It's like this: you didn't get sick overnight & you're not going to heal overnight. Patience is the watchword here. It's hard I know! You just want to get on with your life. We can all relate.  Again, I'm going to say to eat foods easy on your gut. WELL cooked foods. No raw carrots, coconut, nuts & stuff like that. Easier on your gut would be nut butters.... peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter etc.... It's sort of like being a baby ---  soft, easy to digest foods. Bone broth is a great healer for you gut & extremely nutritious as well as being easy on the digestion. Here's just one recipe: http://wellnessmama.com/5888/how-to-make-bone-broth/
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Thanks for the tip! Will try that out in the next few days. By the way, has anyone had any joy with probiotics or digestive enzymes in terms of symptom relief/speeding up the healing process? I asked my consultant about this when I saw him last week and he said that some people find them beneficial while others don't, but obviously I'm keen to try anything that may help, with uncomfortable fullness/bloating/gas still being my main issue  - is it worth giving them a go?
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      I realize that this is an old thread but I would just like to say something about label reading. Just because a product says gluten free on the label doesn't mean that you don't have to read any further and can have complete trust in the product.  There are a lot of products that state that they are gluten free on the package and then you find out that they are processed in plants that also produce wheat products. If you are super sensitive, you need to know that information. I am afraid that there is no escaping reading labels in supermarkets unless you know that the company makes it's products in a truly gluten free environment (even then you should read labels because ingredients can and do change, even in products made in gluten free facilities), It's a pain to stand there and read labels but if you are super sensitive, you might just have to do that. For example, I am gluten and lactose intolerant but also sensitive to nuts and sesame. While it may be fine for other gluten intolerant people to eat something that's labeled gluten free which is produced in a gluten free facility that also processes nuts, for me it is not.. 
    • Golden Bell Pepper Soup (Gluten-Free)
      Dipping your spoon into this bell pepper–sweet potato combo is like dipping into a bowl of sunshine. It's stunning—and the perfect antidote to a gloomy winter's day. This soup also freezes well, so if you're not serving a crowd, store the leftovers for a later date (or make a double batch). I like to enjoy this soup accompanied by my Massaged Kale Salad with Spicy Hazelnuts View the full article

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
