A friend on another site sent me this and I am intrigued. Has anyone tried this? Anyone heard of it? Maybe I am grasping at straws but what the video says seems to make sense to me...thanks for your opinions! Terri O

hmmm...i didn't read the whole thing but celiac is not a food allergy, it is an autoimmune diesase where your body attacks itself. so, people are "cured" when they stop eating gluten but if you start again, you will have the same autoimmune response.
i know people often get relief from other condirions, like RA, when stopping gluten, RA is also autoimmune and these things can all be interconnected.
I think that a food allergy does not cause "long termdamage" to your body like celiac does, but I am no expert on allergies (nor celiac for that matter)

Only real symptoms are huge weight loss and neuropathy

I have to agree. This is dealing with food allergies, and I'm not convinced this person even has a clue what they are talking about, given that she only uses herself as an example. But beyond that, Celiac's Disease is an autoimmune disease. Your body attacks itself in the presence of gluten. While a number of folks have done the Specific Carbohydrate Diet with some success to get away from the foods that both them, it isn't going to fix autoimmune disease. Sorry to be a downer, but until they come up with a real cure, this one isn't it.

As far as celiac is concerned this is total bunk. The person is trying to sell their 'classes' and sounds like they really know nothing about celiac. There are some people who will heal after a while on the diet and then have it take some time for symptoms to come back, the reason they used to think kids outgrew celiac, but we now know that is not the case.
