Would Anyone Recommend Homeopath Testing?

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is confusing! I wrote it rather hurried this morning.

I'm just feeling pretty weak and tired all of the time, it could be from the gluten still but I'm concerned it could be some other food also? I'm just wondering if there would be any point in seeing a specialist for some guidance, as I know what's making me sick even if the doctor's don't!

Thanks for your suggestion, I'll do some research! :)

I am sorry if this got lost in the thread some place... but how long have you been gluten free for? Maybe you just have not healed enough yet. Some people on this forum taking months to years that it took them to get better.

My dietitian is very well versed in celiac matters and has been very helpful in my journey. After I was diagnosed, she helped me set a plan to follow to ensure my body is getting what I need. She also weighs me to keep me accountable (my request). She is simply amazing. Every single person who is diagnosed with celiac in our town is referred to her.

No comment re homeopathy.

When our lives are squeezed by pressure and pain, what comes out is what is inside.

That's okay! Sorry for the confusion, I've had a horrible day feeling so weak and tired and not knowing why! My minds been all over the place and I wrote that post rather quickly this morning, before randomly sleeping for a few hours :(

I just feel so frustrated with all of the confusion, constantly feeling ill and useless doctors I've been seeing!

oh hon, I understand your frustration with feeling so ill (that was me for many years) and we want to help.

I am going to agree with Vincent and Karen and suggest you are still healing and it may be too soon to tell if you still have some other intolerances. Have the testing done that Karen suggests to check for anemia or other deficiencies.

I went the route of alternative practitioners for 3 years--- and they only made things worse. Thousands of dollars spent on quackery.

I was desperate for help before my DX. They are of no value for treating Celiac and the consequences of it.

If you suspect other food intolerances, do an elimination diet. There are examples on the site.

Have you taken out dairy? Start with that one.

You sound as if you are still recovering.

It takes time for it to get out of your system.

Do you take probiotics? They can help.

How long have you been gluten-free?

LOVE2TRAVEL has had a good experience with a dietician. If you can see one, go. Dietary advice is sound and valid. But he/she is not able to diagnose allergies.

I was wondering if anyone would recommend undergoing Homeopath, had any experience with it or any advise on seeing a dietician and avoiding the doctors (as all doctors in my experience have been useless!)

Thanks! K x

In my experience, I think that a homeopathic doctor who does not strictly follow classical training might be helpful if they offer lab tests such as EAV test for food and environmental assessment, and EAV test for organ assessment. I had this test done as part of my initial visit. What I liked about my experience with the homeopathic doctor is that they took the time to truly listen (without judgement - something that is rare) to my symptoms. Emotional and physical. They look at the bigger picture. Everything is interconnected. And, I think because of the nature of their training, they are more open minded. :) Always a good thing.

Open minded.

Without judgement.
