How To Heal Fast?

Hi,

I am 23 years old and I was diagnosed with Celiac over a year ago. I am somewhat better, but my energy level is not even close to where it should be.

For those who have completely healed from Celiac, what did you do that you think may have helped you heal quickly?

I've been taking multivitamnins, digestive enzymes, and iron supplements. I have also been exercising on a regular basis via yoga, swimming and running

Have your thyroid checked.

Hashimoto's is very common with Celiac.

It totally destroys your energy level.

Be extremely careful about eating out and be vigilant about cross contamination at home.

Traces of gluten can keep you from healing completely.

Even tiny amounts can sap your energy.

Be sure you are getting enough protein.

The body needs protein to heal.

It's harder if you are vegan, but still possible.

Look at Mark's Daily Apple and consider whether Paleo is appropriate for you.

Too many carbs and grains make me totally weak and tired even without gluten.

The stricter I limit grains and sugars the better I feel.

It's true for others as well.

Eliminating basically all lectins (grains, legumes, nightshades) I have been able to start healing, and not until then really, unfortunately. But that is just my case.

I personally am finding a low acidic diet is helping me.

eat a whole, natural foods diet. Eliminate if possible manufactured and processed foods. Stick with the gluten free that Mother Nature made. Properly balanced frequent meals with fats, proteins and controlled carbs will increase your energy levels 10-fold. Whereas the extremely high carb manufactured gluten free foods will cause sugar spikes and crashes and leave you feeling less energetic and oogy all the time.

Tingling in the hnds and feet is typical of low calcium levels. You might want to think about a calcium supplement with vit D to help absorb it.

Thank you!! I am taking 2000iu's a day of Vitamin D. A test showed VERY low levels before all this started.

I will call my Dr on Monday.
