Hi all!
It's been a long time since I've posted here. My husband & I have been gluten free for about 11 months now. He began because of psoriatic arthritis, psoriasis & a smattering of other health issues. He is still on methotrexate (which he hates!)...but the beneficial effects of that med plateaued right before we went gluten-free. Plus, he cannot handle taking the full dose that his dr wanted him to take. He's too nervous to go off of it for fear of a big relapse. Being on the diet has seemed to help tremendously. He has gardened all summer, he's begun skateboarding a little bit. And he seems to feel better in general....not sick to his stomach all the time.

The thing is, he is still having some issues....like I've noticed some twitching. He's been getting some migraines again lately. We know that he is B12 deficient, I give him a shot every 2 weeks....he missed a few weeks when I was out of town & ended up having a major panic attack. We know that he is vitamin D deficient. These are the only 2 vitamin/minerals that he's ever been tested for & they both turned out deficient!!! I have a sneaky suspicion that there are others that may be affecting his well-being.

Soooo, my question is this....does anyone have a good suggestion of a naturopath (or a doctor open to celiac/vitamin/mineral deficiencies) in the Chicago area? I think we'd prefer a naturopath who could help look at his health on a wholistic level....I know there are answers for him....we just need the right guidance.

Any info would help.
thnks!
