Hello folks,

This might sound a little odd... but...

Was wondering if anybody here with Celiac/gluten intolerance and/or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome noticed that they rather suddenly manifested "liver spots" (brown freckle-like marks) on the backs of their hands, wrists or fingers?

Had always thought this was a marker of "old age," but when I got C.F.S. in my 30s, my hands, fingers and wrists suddenly had these "old" markers on them. Have never found any reason for them to have appeared and they've never gone away. (Mayo Clinic suggests they're mainly caused by exposure to sun (see link below), but I wonder about that since they are ONLY on my hands and appeared almost overnight. They are definitely permanent and really quite large!)

Hulda Clark seemed to think the spots have something to do with "parasites"?!

And at least one online site does make a connection between the spots and liver function:

http://www.electroherbalism.com/Naturopathy/Regimens/Age_Spot_Regimen.htm

Another person thinks the spots are related to "liver overload":

Wondering if anybody else has had similar experience with so-called "liver spots"? Would be interesting to "compare notes."

Thanks.

Only thing I can share is that I had brown spots that looked like liver spots show up overnight. One morning I was showering and looked down to see my hands spotted with them. I freaked out! I had my sister look at them (she has had some removed) and she agreed that they looked like sun spots but couldn't explain the sudden onset. I did some googling and found that sometimes a chemical reaction with lemon (I think that what is was) and sunlight can cause them. I had been preparing a salad with lemon the day before. In my case, they resolved in about a week. Completely random experience.

Interesting theory I'd like to know too if related to Celiac ?

I've developed them too the past few months and thought just sun spots, but odd now I think about how they've just come about now ............ hhhmmmmmm

I have Celiac Sprue and lots of liver spots. Exposure to sun does make tham darker and I can bleach out the color by taking parasite killing herbs - but the color comes back over time. Hulda Clark called these 'fluke spots' and from my years of experience in doing parasite exams in labs and further reading there is evidence that she was correct. One person using a modified Hulda Clark's zapper was able to eradicate his fluke spots although he thought that there was also a virus present in addition to the parasite. The usual fluke live cycle has a snail as an intermediate host and the fluke immature forms cause pigmented lesions in the snails. In humans, Flukes immature forms/larvae from ova which have hatched in the intestine can migrate to other parts of the body and it seems that some migrate to the skin. Humans carry several kinds of flukes in the intestine, liver and bile system and kidneys. Some flukes can burrow through the shin from infected water and water plants. Fluke ova are ingested in under cooked meat and raw fish. There are both herbal and medical treatments which are effective for flukes in the body but usually do not eradicate fluke spots. One herbal treatment uses a tincture of green black walnuts. I used this on fluke spots on one hand but not the other and it bleached out the color on the treated hand and now have fewer fluke spots on that hand.

Interesting responses. Thanks for your input.

Mari, I often get "sore spots" (reddish inflamed areas that are sensitive and painful) right on my knuckle areas. I noticed when I take BLACK WALNUT HULLS, these areas disappear almost overnight! Black Walnut is a blood cleanser and is rich in silica; is often included in "parasite-cleansing" formulas. (Funny: That sounds like you're giving parasites a bath! LOL)

Anyway, have noticed that the red inflamed spots go away and joints/knuckles no longer ache EVERY time I take as little as ONE Black Walnut Capsule (would take it more frequently but am allergic to the gelatin capsule and mixing the b.w. contents with a "carrier" like apple sauce seems like a hassle, so don't do it often); but the so-called liver spots seem permanent. They never fade on their own; may have to try some topical treatments to see if that makes a difference...

    • Thank you all for taking the time to respond.  It's comforting to know I have a place to ask questions and share my concerns.   My daughter's antibodies are as follows: 1/9/17:  783.6 (before stopping gluten) 5/16/17: 69.7 8/14/17: 50.6 Her thyroid/hormones all in normal range.  An endoscopy in May showed her villi looked good with minimal damage. Her B12 (checked on 8/14/17) is excellent.  Her antibodies will be checked again when she returns home in Dec.  She avoids gluten as much as possible, however she's away at college so cross contamination is likely.  She eats extremely well -- mostly salads, vegetables, protein, fruits, rice.  When on the go she supplements with kind bars, quest bars, or Rx bars.  She'll snack on gluten-free crackers (Blue Diamond made from almonds), hummus, peanut butter, and popcorn.  Once in awhile she'll treat herself to Tate's gluten-free cookies or Halo ice cream.  She's in college so, yes, she drinks alcohol on occasion.  Titos gluten-free vodka, but no beer!  Since stopping gluten her stomach feels much better, less bloating and pain (her main complaints before stopping gluten).  I do notice when she's home on break from college she will have a healthy, nice sized portion of food at each meal and say she feels very full afterward, yet shortly after she will feel hungry again and need to reach for a snack (always a healthy one).  She takes 2 gluten free gummy Multi-Vites (same as Costco brand I believe) as well as vitamin D daily.   She was diagnosed with celiac on 1/11/17, stopped gluten immediately, and her last period started on 1/13/17.  For six years her period was very regular and it only changed once she stopped eating gluten.  I have to believe there is a connection.  The frustrating part is that nobody has any answers.  I know my daughter would feel a lot better if her cycle returned.  We will seek the advice of a nutritionist as well as continue speaking to doctors, but in the meantime if you have any more suggestions I welcome them (i.e., foods, supplements, vitamins, etc).  Thank you all very much!            
    • If only they were peanut free . I been buying my seeds from Gerbs allergen friendly foods for past 5+ years. I end up buying my almonds, walnuts, and pistachios from dedicated companies....got to admit I get a better deal on almonds but I go through 25lbs every 2 months.
    • Good to know I would like to get more nuts and seeds  but find many retailers by me have the shared equipment claim on package so I've held off other than some almonds. My daughter and I are battling over all the fresh pumpkin seeds I've been roasting so I should see if nuts .com sells some a 5 lb bag would fix the ordeal likely a need for magnesium -
    • Nuts.com is a trusted company. You can be confident with them. 
    • Personally, I only buy from gluten free list. They are packaged in one pound and five pound zip top bags. Good heavy duty bags. I buy a lot of their dried fruit and nuts and make my own trail mix. I also love their cashew flour. I much prefer it over almond flour. I also love the dried cranberry beans. I have only had a few things I haven’t cared for, but it was personal taste, not a problem with the product. Recently I bought A product that I truly hated {tiger nut flour}. I’ve ordered for years and never complained but this time I did. They immediately credited me my money. Said they just wanted me happy. I recommend them highly
