Just Had The Stuffing Scared Out Of Me

Recommended Posts

I had pretty much figured out my gluten issues came from my Mom's side of the family. From reading descriptions she sounded like a celiac as did her Mother. Both dead now. My Dad just called and my uncle is in the hospital with of all things...intestinal cancer. Wow! That just gives new motivation to sticking to this!! I need to talk my brother and his kids into getting tested now.

Yeah. Even for people who don't have traditional celiac eating gluten often causes degenerative diseases. Often people will become gluten intolerant whether they officially have celiac or not. Its good you are becoming more aware. Again I suggest more of a paleo diet. Especially for your uncle when he is well enough to eat!


Diagnosed celiac sprue as infant: failure to thrive & pneumonia-back on grains age 4. Began herbs 1971 combating chronic kidney disease/general ill health 1973. Avoid wheat family and "allergens" by 1980. Late 80's doc. diagnosed candida: cave-man diet. Diagnosed degraded myelin sheath 2006; need co-enzyme B vitamins. Discovered celiac fall 2007; finally told diagnosis as infant. Recently found I am salicylic acid intolerant. Ironically can't tolerate most herbs now. Can now eat brown rice & other gluten-free grains (except corn) & even maple syrup & now homeopathic medicine works! Am still exploring the shape of this elephant but I've made progress!
