  1. I cured my gut in the end too. I'll never cure from the secondary condition but gut wise I'm fine. I no longer eat carbs, well.. Not many. For me that provides enough natual immune suppression to let the gut heal. I have the opinion that grains with gluten highlighted and sugar with fructose highlighted...
  2. Celiac disease is genetic , the damage causes secondary auto immune disease. You wont see anyone from pure african stock with it because they haven't crossed out with other human species with the stronger immune systems. They will still get messed up by anti biotics though. It should be a given...
  3. Im only posting general knowledge. Wikipedia ok, but i cant be searching links for every little forum on the net. For years all i did was read papers and visit specialists until i was able to find my diagnosis. I learnt a lot, im still not 100% but no one else is doing any better than I am. Its worth...
  4. There are recent studies which show a much greater incidence of immune system disease in kids which have had antibiotics in early life, either at birth or as infants. The one I read was pretty much no antibiotics no disease it was about as conclusive as you get in a study. I do think antibiotics...
  5. I was vegan for 20 years. Hardened strict, saving the world and all that. MAJOR mistake for HLA gene Europeans. Some people thrive as a vegetarian some get ill. If you are not a glowing eyes example with perfect thick skin Id be getting onto a fat based diet before serious damage is done. Some genetic...
  6. You can probably read up on immune systems somewhere and how it is trained by gut flora in the early years. Im just repeating what ive learned from my doctors. You can sometimes achieve cures in auto immue type diseases in young children, usually not in adults. Although they think the adult immune...
  7. Good theory but Im going to suggest your daughters immune problems came from damage in her youth. Kids immune systems are set in their ways by the time they are eight. If your having trouble with milk , celiac disease is already there years ealier.
  8. I had EoE or something similar when my celiac was at its worst. Which then became a full on eosinophilic disease. Kimuras disease most often involes the saliva glands. An IgE test will confirm or clear you of that easy enough. (thats what I have). It also often causes kidney problems (blood pressure...
  9. I've often had popping jaw, clicking neck when I talk and knees in the past. I did at times have knees so sore than I struggled to walk but that all stopped ages ago. I haven't eaten gluten in 4 or 5 years and I guess it stopped about then. By the way I started getting regular B12 injections about...
  10. I've been getting smashed by the rash/sores for 20 years, I don't know if it'll ever totally clear up and I've been strictly gluten free for 4 years. But granted I have other problems that have developed that also cause the same symptoms. Bulk antihistamine use keeps me 90% clear
  11. More than half of everyone on the planet has large parasites and most of us would have several species, I bet everyone has a tiny sub clinical parasite or ten. We are evolved to live with them so it's no big deal for most people but I bet it causes gut problems in others. I've been extensively tested...
  12. Hello yes this is the normal way to go about healing the gut. I haven't done a full elemental diet as far as only vege juice and amino acids go but I have been following a basic version of the SCD diet and it's working for me. I'm taking a bulk ton of probiotics and I'm cheating a bit and taking...
  13. I need to have B12 levels around 1000 to feel OK. But the level itself isn't that important, If I drop from 1000 to 900 I feel just as rubbish as if I drop from 200 to 100.. In any case I like to hold it steady at 1000 because that's what works. Vit D, you should try hold that at 120-150 but...
  14. For me some brands of chip are ok some not. I'm not sure I should be blaming the salt or the different oil each company may use. There's only three ingredients in chips! surely it can't be that hard to figure out but it is. Some give me gut pain some don't.
