I’ve been reading some studies on use of CBd oil for celiac disease which sound supportive for using it. A friend is using 5 drops every night and day and she swears her celiac symptoms are gone.  Anyone else finding the same?

I never tried it myself.  But celiac is not cureable so not sure what the point is?   Celiac symptoms are widely varied and there are treatments for some of them.

Hi!  

The only treatment for celiac disease is a strict gluten free diet.  That said, not every celiac wants to adhere to the diet.  My PCP told me that she has three celiac patients (I do have a GI as well).  Two of them refuse to give up gluten.  She has over 2,000 patients and she knows these two celiacs well because they are always sick.  

I have allergies to so many medications — even acetaminophen and ibuprofen.  It would be nice to have something that would take the edge off pain.  If it is pharmaceutical grade, it might be useful to get you through a gluten exposure.  

I work hard to avoid gluten.  My last repeat endoscopy revealed healthy villi.  But a few gluten hits may have been the cause an additional autoimmune disorder I have developed since my celiac disease diagnosis.   When my celiac disease is activated, it sets off my other AI disorders.  Not fun.

Report back and let us know if it helps you.

I use it for anxiety and depression...I was on it when I was last exposed and it did not stop the vomiting, D, and ataxia. While it can be useful for anxiety, depression, nervous issues, and pain, it does not slow down, or stop the damage gluten does to a person with celiac. You might be numbing yourself from it but your immune system will still be destroying your insides.

it smoothes the angry gut but it will not stop damage if one consumes gluten.  celiac doesn't 'go' - but if it makes the symptoms manageable, sounds good to me.  the 'regular' kind of cannabis makes me have an appetite, therefore very useful as i am underweight.  if it's helping your friend to be comfortable, gut-wise, that's wonderful.  different things work for different celiacs.  but she must continue eating gluten free.  she can be damaging things without knowing it if she doesn't.

i am truly glad the restrictions on cannabis are loosening so the medical community can see what this herb can and cannot do.  i watched a video of a guy with parkinson's was spasming so bad he could hardly walk and within minutes of consuming cbd oil, he was moving around very noticably improved.  pretty cool.
