  1. Wow! Now listen to this: I have alopecia areata, asthma, meniere's disease....now possibly celiac disease...good grief i say. I have been gluten free 3-4 days now and feel heaps better. I am now just waiting it out to see if any of my above conditions will imprrove while off gluten. One of my issues were heartburn, thats getting lots better now, i still get this burp 1-2 hours after a meal, but nowhere near as burning as it has been before gluten was removed from my diet. I don't wanna go and get tested for Celiac as it sounds awful. So I will just eliminate gluten and see how i go. Did I mention I also have anxiety and depression? I am so over feeling so foggy and tired all the time...time to find a cure I say.
  2. Hi there, I am currently working out wether or not I have gluten intolarance of any kind. When I was about 8-9 years old i developed Alopecia Areata. No one knew how or why this happened to me. I had bouts of anxiety issues whilst growing up, but no one knew for sure why. Today I believe i have found the missing link that I have been looking for for many years....GLUTEN. The more I have researched this subject, the more i am convinced my hair will grow back to a healthier fuller hair. I also believe my anxiety which is now under control with venlafaxine could one day go away once the gluten is completely gone from my body. it is only 3-4 days so far and I feel heaps better already. I was suffering from reflux and went on antiacid tabs(losec) which may have contributed to my current bouts of hairloss, as one of it's sideffects are alopcia, anyways i decided to never touch those types of antiacids, i will only go for those chewable ones if i really need it. My need for those chewable tabs are decreasing everyday, and I am so thrilled about this! I drink lots of milk now which also soothes my tummy if i get heartburn. And eating probiotic yoghurt to boost my gut bactieria. Right nowe though i am experiencing lots of flatulance lol, must my gut re-adjusting to the new gluten free enviroment....
