I think grains can cause demineralization through 1) being very acid and 2) containing phytic acid. Of course, lots of foods contain phytic acid, such as nuts, seeds, grains, and to a lesser extent some veggies.

There are a few books out about grains - dangerous grains maybe is one title name. I can't recall.

You say your joints hurt and your teeth are dissolving in front of you - I would suggest cutting out grains entirely - all of them. They demineralize the body and can cause joint pain and demineralization of teeth. If you have joint pain you might also want to see if you are eating a lot of nightshades (tomato, potato, eggplant, peppers (not black pepper) and tobacco). If so, you should quit those too to see if the pain goes away.

I have Celiac and have had it actively since I was a toddler. I have had amazing teeth my whole with only one shallow cavity (I'm 42) - and that was when I had braces and it was hard to clean the old choppers. In the past year, my front teeth have started to look clear and I have pains in my teeth whenever I eat brown rice and other high acid demineralizing foods.

That would be my advice to you - try one or both of those eliminations. No grains is a bit difficult at first - we are really used to eating grains. You can use quinoa and amaranth to substitute, but know that they have mineral blocking qualities as well. Take a good calcium supplement and see if that helps.

Good luck.

IMHO your doctor was giving you the right advice. Go with the natural D3 he advised rather than the lab made D2.

OH MY GOSH I'M SO SORRY ..DYSLEXIA ATTACK. It is D3 that is the natural one that is the better one to take. I'm so sorry. That is also the one Dr. Mercola talks about - and why you should choose it over D2.

Good luck.

When I was a little girl, I often had blood in my stool caused by fissures. These are tiny cracks in the sphincter or the skin down there, whatever it literally is. This is caused by constant constipation. Some things you can do BESIDES cure the constipation, which would obviously be the best thing, is not to use harsh soaps on the bottom. These dry out the skin further and make fissures more common.

Also, more and more I am really doubting these celiac tests. I know I'm talking out of school here, but I have met so many people who not only have symptoms, but who have gotten substantially better going gluten free, but still test out negative. The tests are not as good as your experience on a gluten free diet.

I would definitely try your daughter out on a gluten-free and dairy free diet and see if her Constipation and Vomiting get better. It can really change her life if she does not have to grow up with those things, the way I did. Take good care.

Sorry. I keep thinking of other things. I don't know how much water you are drinking, or if the drinking water changes from weekeday to weekend, but one can demineralize oneself with lots of water.

I hope you figure it out.
