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!

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

"The calm river of your life approaches the rocky chute of the rapids - flow on through. You are the same water. The rocks cannot hurt you. Remember, now and then, that you are the water and not the boat. Flow on!

My brother says it's kinda like AA- You know, Hi, I'm Julie, and I'm a Celiac. I've been gluten-free for two years.......

Ok, I guess it's not EXACTLY the same.......... Especially since I feel no desire whatsoever to go back.

Hi, I'm a newbie but just wanted to say Congratulations! Good for you and I'm glad you're starting to feel better....it gives me hope! I was just thinking tonight about my 1 year of being gluten free when I was cleaning up the kitchen after dinner and heard on the tv that Jason Mesnick was announced as the next Bachelor (noticed you're from Seattle - he's from around Seattle too i believe....i'll definitely be watching!) and it said it would air in Jan. and i thought oh wow, i'll be gluten-free for one year in Jan. Anyway, hope you continue to feel better and better! :)
