I Think Im Cured !

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

having spent 6 years as a confirmed coeliac , i always hoped and believed there was a cure for me

having tried homeapathy [waste of time and money] i was given a number of a kaneiseilogist [weird to explain what they do - have faith]

after my first visit i was told that i had candida - a yeast infection of the intestine

The symtoms are very similar to coeliacs

had to cut sugar out of my diet completetly [best i could]. Suddenly my taste buds changed - I actually tasted food

together with a sugar fast i was prescribed some pills [PERMATROL]

now ,after 4 months i can get away with flour -although i can do smelly farts

when the farting starts i ease off the flour

my stalls (sh*t] are nice and healthy now as opposed to runny

HOPE THIS HELPS AT LEAST ONE MORE UNNESSARY SUFFERER !

I am not sure you are cured. If you google coeliac it says the only treatment is a life long gluten-free diet. If you are saying that after some foul smelling farts you need to ease up on the flour....that is your bodies way of saying it cannot process the flour. You are probably doing damage to your body and just are not getting the worst symptoms yet...

Anyone else have any idea?

You say you are a 'confirmed' coeliac.

Do you mean by biopsy????

There really is NO other cure for a coeliac other than a gluten-free diet.

To say anything different is dangerous.

Yes I was thinking the same, did you have confirmed Celiac from biopsy/blood tests?

It is dangerous as Nikki stated, not only for your body but for other members on this board who are newly and think that it is ok after a few months gluten free to go off the diet....

This is no known cure yet for Celiacs Disease except to the adhearance of a strict gluten free diet. Even though she may be feeling "normal" damage is taken place in her intestines.

There is no treatment currently for Celiac Disease except the gluten-free diet.

A Kinesiologist can possibly alert you to food intolerances and allergies, but can not treat or cure Celiac.

Um........yeah.......no cure for Celiac and your smelly farts would indicate the response to the poison in your intestine (although surely smelly farts CAN occur for other reasons.....but I will say that I rarely pass gas any more........).

Every single kineseologist or naturopath of which I've heard diagnoses every single patient with candida, followed by the taking of their very expensive prescribed antedotes (sold at their own offices)...and if you in fact DO have candida.....the only "cure" is an anti-candida diet, which takes months to see results, from what I"ve read here.

While your intestines and response to gluten will change - after nearly two years gluten-free myself I can eat somethign and not have a horrible reaction - you will never be cured of celiac. You will damage your gut and eventually it will catch up with you.......

Oh, bother, wonder if you'll even come back to read these responses, since you think you are cured?

:huh:

I agree, no cure only diet.... I do understand that you could have both a heavy yeast load & celiacs..... but it is a long process to rid yeast in the body & keep it at bay. I believe that also requires are fairly strict diet as well.

I personally think you are in a sinking ship by this way of thinking. sorry....

I truly wish for all of us to find a cure but at present we know the answer to that hope ......

I am glad you feel better, but you should be concerned with potential future problems, and I agree that people who are newly diagnosed may be careless because of the hope of a cure.

I am guessing you were right on this Susie.

Threads like this never end up good. It is a topic that will get people worked up since it is very incorrect.

Hoo-boy . . .. .. .where to start?

Are we sure this isn't just some shill for an alleged candida pill?

Discounting that, doesn't Jimbo's saying

The symtoms are very similar to coeliacs

lead to the scenario where the actual cause of the gluten-related symptoms always were due to candida alone. Somehow celiac was stumbled upon, and was wrongly attributed to be the cause, but it was finally finding & treating the candida that made a difference.

What 6yr celiac doesn't already know that this genetic auto-immune disorder doesn't go away?

If we don't hear back before long, it may be safe to assume this single post by a new acct is nothing but a sales pitch created by a mercenary who won't be seen again.

Just in case this was an actual post from someone and not a attempt to sell a drug I thought I should mention......

In the young folks who have been diagnosed there is often what is referred to as a honeymoon period after being gluten free for a while, I am meaning years here not months. The person may believe what the doctors used to believe, that folks could grow out of celiac. This was very common thinking in this country until not to long ago. We now know that does not happen. However the presentation of symptoms can change and the person might very well think this for the first few months or even a couple years after they add gluten back in. This can lead folks to think that they were either misdiagnosed or that they are 'cured'. Of course newer reseach has shown that the auto immune destruction will continue and eventually they will be fully symptomatic again. My DD had 2 symptom free years after deciding her diagnosis was wrong in the first place. Only for the last couple of months have symptoms been popping up again.

If the original poster was a person who was looking to help, inform or looking for information the automatic assumption that they are posting just to sell could be quite distressing. They could very well have been doing just that and at this point with some of the responses the person has gotten I hope that is the case. If I was a sincere poster and recieved replies like some of the ones this one recieved I dont think I would be back either.

If you actually think you are cured, then even after 6 years you don't understand the basic facts of celiac disease.

If you have a celiac gene, you have a genetic predisposition to celiac disease, which can be triggered and develop IF YOU EAT GLUTEN. This predisposition never goes away. Eat gluten and you can develop celiac disease, which is officially diagnosed by observation of flattened, damaged villi via an endoscopy. If you stop eating/don't eat gluten, the villi damage will repair itself and go away, and will stay away as long as you don't eat more gluten.

A vague analogy to this goes thus: Imagine a person who always gets a bright red facial rash from eating strawberries. If they don't eat the strawberries, they don't get the rash. If they eat the strawberries, they get the rash. When the rash isn't present, they don't have the rash but the predisposition to it is always there. Of course, a rash is a lot less serious than celiac disease, but the analogy is similar.

The predisposition to celiac disease CANNOT be cured because it is genetically based. If you have the gene, you have the predisposition.

This is your life and your health, you should become more knowlegeable about it and take it seriously.

Jimbo. If you are gluten intolerant than your candida cure could be possible. But, if you have confirmed celiac than you are not cured, but probably silently hurting yourself. You can do damage without symptoms.

It is not a rash, but hives and swelling.  Some doctors think it is a separate autoimmune disorder or that it piggybacks on to others.  It is more commonly associated with autoimmune thyroiditis.   My last bout lasted for six months.  They appeared (from my head to my soles of my feet) every afternoon around 4:00 pm and resolved by morning.  Oddly, they start with abdominal pain.  That is my first clue and next an itchy head.  I was on a cocktail of antihistamines and attempted a low histam
