I have had Celiac Spru for about 5 or 6 years. Along with a few other things. I am 51 years old. I go up and down from a 140lbs to 110lbs all the time. I am sick constantly. I dont know why but I can not seem to get anything under controll. Recently I heard about Allegenix. It is done by this chyroprator out here in Utah that we know and mayber alot other dr.s I dont know. What I need to know is Has ANYONE HEARD OF IT AND DOES IT WORK? I keep thinking that if it works why are there so many of us still celiac sufferers?

Even if this did work it doesn't have anything to do with celiac disease. This treatment supposedly eliminates allergies. Celiac disease is not an allergy.

Yes it is we are alergic to the gluten.

I'd be careful, BK. Maybe it'll work for allergies, but celiac and an allergy to wheat are different beasts. It sounds a bit like snake oil to me, though. (The lady saying she's been cured works for the chiropractor; she's not a neutral party.) Do some research on the internet and look for reputable medical studies on it (like from medical journals, rather than sites selling/advocating books, services, pills, etc.) If it seems to good to be true, it probably is.

Take care,

Kat

Celiac disease is not an allergy. It's an autoimmune reaction. Gluten causes your body to produce antibodies (EMA, Ttg) that destroy your intestines. It's currently the only autoimmune disorder that can be prevented or "cured" by avoiding the trigger (although your body will always be able to start producing antibodies again if you go back to eating gluten).

It is possible, however, that you also have one or more true allergies... which cause your body to produce histamines. I would make an appointment with an allergist before buying any products.

Ok you guys are really helping me now. Thankyou. Please anyone keep throwing things at me. I have had this so long I think I have gotten myself confused with all the other stuff I have too. Also I have a memory problem. I know Celiac is an autoimmune thing but it is caused from the alergy to the wheat by products isnt it? Or is is triggered by them. Oh my gosh I need to go back to studing. I have been sick for so long I am reaching for miricles I guess. I have never been able to feel good since I got this stuff. Thankyou so much for your info and patience. I am just an old lady who has been about ready to throw in the towel....

Hi BKnutson! I think a lot of people use the term allergy/intolerance loosely around here. Celiac is an autoimmune disorder that makes us intolerant of gluten.

I would think twice before doing this treatment only because you don't seem to know much about it. It may work but it may not and I'd hate to see you spend the money if it doesn't work :( See if you can find out more of it.

You have been gluten-free for awhile and are still feeling poopy (I was too). Have you tried eliminating other foods that seem to give a lot of people trouble here- like soy, dairy? Have you seen your doctor lately for a checkup?

I hope you find the answer- don't stop until you do!

Thanks Beverly,

I actualy decided I would put in a call to my Dr. and ask him about it. I mean if it is such a miricle why arent we all healed? I have not been in for a while. I am sick all the time. But I Have some other problems and lactose is one. Fybromyalgia is one. Artoritis, so I am an old lady who is a mess. But thank you. I am wondering if you are the Beverly who sent me a huge list of foods about four years ago. It was called ----- list. I cant remember. I lost it when my computer crashed.

BK
