And then she said "Celiac Disease is just not in my mechanisms".


This sounds like your doctor tested you for the HLA-DQ2 gene which is connected with celiac. Did she say anything about gene testing?

You can still be gluten sensitive if you do not have the HLA-DQ2 gene.

Here is my formula for a good night sleep:
Exercise for 20 minutes early in the day
No caffeine
No alcohol
Have a generous portion of protein with dinner
Have a small potato with just butter 3 hours after dinner.

The potato thing is from Kathleen DesMaisons book "Potatoes not Prozac". It is a program that naturally boosts serotonin levels. Your serotonin levels may be low due to malabsorption of tryptophan which is what serotonin is made from. Melatonin, which is what makes you feel sleepy in the evening, is made from serotonin.

It may take a few days to work.

Yes! read the book "Potatoes not Prozac" by Kathleen DesMaison. It does not work as well as Paxil, but there are no side effects. She has a web page at http://radiantrecovery.com/.

Check out the Baxter web site at Baxter Glutamine. This is the product that I use. It is great for healing the gut.

I also suffer from Anxiety/Panic. I am eating gluten now because my biopsy is in May. The Anxiety is much worse now that I am eating lots of gluten. I did take Paxil for a while and felt great, but I do not like being dependent on drugs so I stopped. Since it worked so well, I believe that my anxiety is due to a seratonin imbalance as opposed to emotional/stress. I am really hopeful that the anxiety will go away once I go gluten free.

My panic attacks are only in the middle of the night. Do you have the same problem?
