  1. I know that there is no cure for Celiac, but I have read in numerous places that it is possible to heal the gut and help reduce symptoms. He is what this forum would call super sensitive, and despite our best efforts, very often sick or symptomatic. He's only 6, and I have every hope that we can do something to heal the damage.
  2. My guy gets the runs immediately and then constipated after, so it depends on which stage he's in and how long he may be in the bathroom. For diarrhea, yes, every time. For constipation, no if we think he will make it through the day without needing to spend an hour int he bathroom. His behavior is always poor following an exposure, so we let them know right away to be on the look out.
  3. My oldest son is now 6, and was d'xed with a wheat and gluten allergy through the ELISA test and Celiac through suggestive blood test by an environmental doctor. We declined a biopsy because he was very young at the time and started him on a gluten free diet (he's also dairy free). His symptoms were both physical (weight loss, sudden onset bedwetting, constipation/diarrhea, low ferritin and magnesium by blood test) and behavioral (ADHD symptoms, forgetting skills and memorized things like spelling of name, etc.), and they all came about after we all got H1N1 and a dose of Tamiflu. The environmental doctor believed this was the trigger for the Celiac and told us to put him on a gluten-free diet and his body would heal. It's been nearly 3 years, and every minute contamination of gluten brings on every symptom in full force. I feel as though we're constantly preventing and making no strides forward in helping his body heal. So far, during the 3 week period following exposure, we're doing epsom salt baths to help with magnesium and probiotics to help with the gut, but I have no idea where to go from here. He's fully vaccinated at this point, but has gotten NO antibiotics (other than a whopping huge dose during my labor and his delivery) or any other sort of pharmaceutical since the h1n1. We use organic products on face and body, and homeopathics ONLY. All of my children are also completely food dye free. I'd love to hear even disparate ideas about healing his gut.
