Road To Recovery, How To Heal?

I know the story is all too familiar for all of you, but I have to tell a little bit of my story here.


I am turning 30 in about a month, and i honestly feel like i have never lived.

I have been told Im crazy more times than I care to remember. I have come to terms with my upbringing, but still have gone to therapy, in an attempt to be less crazy.

I've taken medications that I swore I'd never take. All so I wouldn't be crazy anymore.

I have eaten mac n cheese to comfort me when im feeling sad and chicken noodle soup when I had a cold, but i still felt crappy and that cold always ended up lasting 2 months.

I have spent so much of my life being sick and fatigued, i feel like a new born kid these past 4 months gluten free.

I recently received my blood tests back, they were done after 3 1/2 months gluten free. Here are those results http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/107942-help-me-de-code-these-results/

Many of my symptoms have decreased significantly in the past 4 months. I am still having some issues, but really working on perfecting this gluten free thing. I know i have to and it really feels much better.


What are the best foods to eat to heal ? I like to eat as many raw fruits and veggies as possible during the day. I feel like it makes me feel better, but is it hard to digest? I really just want to make sure I am doing things properly to heal as well as possible. I feel like little cuts and scrapes have been healing quicker than ever, im like super human! Does this go for my gut? How long does it take to heal?

I just posted on your other thread. Take a look :)


If you can tolerate raw fruits and veggies, eat them. There is no "prescription" or set diet except avoid gluten (and if you have a dairy problem, take that out for a few months and add it back in later. )


It takes anywhere from 6 months- years, depending on many factors: age, severity of the damage, how long you have been sick, how dietary compliant

someone is, etc. .


Don't think in terms of "when will I get there?"  because this is an exercise in patience. It is counter-productive to healing if you are stressing over things. 


Think this way : every day is a healing day.
