Very interesting, indeed.

I've also been considering the "gut health" issue, and have been considering supplements to address that issue specifically.

That said, I am someone who HATES taking pills/supplements so that's saying a lot.

Probable Endometriosis, in remission from childbirth since 2002.

Hashimoto's DX 2005.

Gluten-Free since 6/2011.

DH (and therefore Celiac) dx from ND.

Responsive to iodine withdrawal for DH (see quote, above).

Genetic tests reveal half DQ2, half DQ8 - I'm a weird bird!

I also am someone who hates pills. Anyone know what kind of allergy test she had done? My insurance runs out in about 6 days and would love to have a panel ran. Also- in the us- will they test for vitamin deficiencies if you ask? I know vitamin D is low for me, but I'd love to know what else

We really need better Drs in my area.....

I'm not a pill person either but I'm going through the Helobactor Pylori treatment uggh I will be glad when thats finished!

I think it was very fortunate that the person found such a great doctor, I know myself when my digestive system is happy so is the rest of my body!

Interesting. While it takes a different approach, (diet to restore gut health rather than just supplementation or elimination of IgG indicated foods) the basic concept of gut inflammation causing poor absorption, food reactions, and mental health issues is all covered in the GAPS book as well.


Our family is transitioning off the GAPS Intro Diet and into the Full GAPS Diet.

Gluten-Free since November 2010

GAPS Diet since January/February 2011

me - not tested for celiac - currently doing a gluten challenge since 11/26/2011

partner - not tested for celiac

ds - age 11, hospitalized 9/2010, celiac dx by gluten reaction & genetics. No biopsy or blood as we were already gluten-free by the time it was an option.

dd - age 12.5, not celiac, has Tourette's syndome

both kids have now-resolved attention issues.
