Jefferson Adams posted an article in Ataxia, Nerve Disease, Neuropathy, Brain Damage and Celiac DiseaseCeliac.com 11/27/2017 - For centuries, physicians have used cannabis to treat numerous disorders. Modern research shows that various cannabis compounds can alleviate symptoms from numerous conditions, including neurological disorders, cancer, rheumatism, epilepsy, sexual disorders, pain, among others. Many people with celiac disease suffer from neuropathy, which causes nerve pain, among other symptoms. Neuropathy can be difficult to treat. Nerve pain is a debilitating symptom that can significantly impair a patient's quality of life. Could a new cannabis patch change that? Some researchers think so. One California-based company, Cannabis Science, is developing an innovative new medicinal patch specifically designed to treat nerve pain. In addition to celiac related neuropathy, the patch could be helpful in treating nerve pain from many illnesses including fibromyalgia, diabetes, and multiple sclerosis. The National Institute of Health estimates that over 5 million Americans suffer from fibromyalgia, which has no known cure, and is difficult to treat. With diabetes on the rise in the U.S., diabetic nerve pain is also on the rise. When placed on the patient's skin, the patch developed by Cannabis Science delivers a measured dose of high potency cannabidiol (CBD) extract. CBD is the second major cannabinoid in marijuana after THC, but CBD has no psychoactive effects, so it won't get people high. When the patch is applied, the CBD is first absorbed into the blood, then moves to the central nervous system, where it delivers pain relief. Numerous studies have documented CBD's “anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. More recent studies have shown that CBD provides relief from many kinds of pain. In addition to nerve pain, CBD has been shown to relieve inflammatory pain. Some studies have shown CBD to be more effective than current medication in treating inflammatory pain, such as pain from arthritis. As researchers home in on the pain-relieving properties of cannabis, look for more treatments to be developed, including treatments that may helpful for peopl with celiac disease.

WearyCeliac posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Hey Everyone! Been celiac for 6 years, and it's my first time on a forum. I assume my story is the same as most of yours: I was really sick and skinny and bloated, got diagnosed with celiac, went gluten-free and felt amazing, then slowly, but surely, the symptoms and elevated antibodies returned, no matter how OCD I am about avoiding cc. Basically I have what they call Non-Responsive Celiac disease. I'm wondering, is there something ELSE that I can do? Clearly the gluten-free diet isn't enough anymore. I know I'm not alone in this experience. And I know doctors don't have any advice besides the gluten-free diet (and the new celiac drug that is apparently in phase III)). But do you guys know of any other tricks? I went on anti-anxiety SSRIs for a bit to help with my anxiety problems, and that really helped my celiac. But now that I've sort of developed a tolerance to my low dose, the symptoms have returned. Anyone else try this? Or low doses or steroids/anti-inflammatory drugs? I'm really sick of feeling sick. I even tried the Fasano (Gluten Contamination Elimination Diet) for 3 months, but it didn't really work. Any suggestions or tips would be much appreciated! Or even the names of doctors who have helped you!
Last week I was suffering from some DH breakouts and hives (new makeup issue). I went into my local Wallgreen's and decided to pick-up some new gluten free lotion to try. I sampled Dove Cream Oil (extra dry skin/advanced formula) on my itchy arms and hands in the store. I laughed to myself thinking, "I'm either going to feel a little better or a whole lot worse in about 30 minutes." I liked the way the lotion felt on my skin and decided to purchase it. I noticed on my drive home that I was no longer itching on my hands as I had all morning long. I waited a few hours and my hands felt soft and calm. I decided to go for the gusto and apply it to my whole body. Same result. My DH on my stomach, back, legs, and shoulders were no longer driving me insane. I had a peaceful nights sleep for once!!! So, I have been religiously this cream to my body for the past few days. I actually feel normal. WOW. I forgot what that was like. I am pleased to announce that my skin is calm. No new breakouts. My DH spots are healing & I have a new sense of hope that I can experience some relief!!! It is very early on, but I really wanted to share this good news. I know how miserable this itching can be and if this helps anyone else I will be so pleased. Thank you.
Soooooo, how many of you realized that Sodium Starch Glycolate (a common filler in EVERYTHING) is considered gluten and toxic to those of us who have severe Celiac? I learned the hard way..... After being bitten by what they think was a deer tick (had a round bullseye rash) I was put on what was supposed to be a gluten free drug. I was SICKER after taking the drug...dawned on me I had better research the filler ingredients. Turns out to those very sensitive, SODIUM STARCH GLYCOLATE is in the same family as gluten and cannot be tolerated. Now.....go to www.glutenfreedrugs.com and they list SO many drugs that indeed CONTAIN this hidden gluten! I have been getting sick and not understanding why.....now I know. Please let everyone know about this hidden substance that should be included in the GLUTEN TOXIC SUBSTANCES that make us so very sick
