Celiac Disease: Everything You Should Know

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder. It is triggered when you consume gluten. This usually means a life-long gluten-free diet to manage symptoms and promote intestinal healing. As of now, there’s no cure.
 
But what if we said there’s still another way?

Here’s everything you need to know about Celiac Disease

What is Celiac Disease?

Celiac Disease is an immune reaction to eating food with gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, etc. Gluten triggers an immune reaction in the small intestine. This eventually destroys the inner lining and prevents you from absorbing much-needed nutrients. The damage to the intestines also causes most of the symptoms associated with Celiac Disease like diarrhoea, fatigue, weight loss, etc. If left untreated, it can lead to some serious complications. This can also affect growth and development in children.

Causes
A celiac patient’s immune system overreacts in response to gluten. This causes damage to the small intestine, reducing its ability to absorb nutrients.
 
If left untreated, Celiac Disease can result in serious complications. For adults, it may take over 2 years of gluten-free diet to promote intestinal healing.
 
People with other autoimmune diseases, genetic disorders are more likely to have Celiac Disease. You’re more likely to get it if it runs in the family.
Food that may trigger Celiac Disease
Everything with gluten in it should be avoided. Gluten is a protein which is found in most grains. This includes wheat and all forms of it, including wheat starch, semolina, graham flour, wheat bran, wheat germ, couscous, cracked wheat, durum, einkorn, emmer, farina, faro, fu, gliadin, Kamut, matzo, spelt, etc. Then there’s barley, rye, and even oats in some cases.
 
The following types of food must be avoided, unless if they’re labelled gluten-free or made with gluten-free grain:
 
 
  • Beverages like beer, ale, porter, stout
  • Bread
  • Cakes
  • Candies
  • Cereals
  • Cookies, biscuits
  • Pasta and more.
Celiac Disease can be silent

Most people with Celiac Disease never realise that they have it. Only about 20% of people with Celiac Disease get the right diagnosis.

Gluten-free diet

 The only way to manage symptoms is to have a completely gluten-free diet for the rest of your life. This allows your intestines to heal.

Testing

 People with Celiac Disease have high levels of antiendomysium (EMA) & anti-tissue transglutaminase (tTGA) antibodies, which can be detected with blood tests.

NAET TESTIMONIALS

From IBS to a pain free life
If customers can’t find it, it doesn’t exist. Clearly list and describe the services you offer. Also, be sure to showcase a premium service. “I had IBS for 6 years before a friend referred me to NAET. I had severe abdominal pain all the time and was very allergic to drugs. I couldn’t eat anything and always had diarrhea which caused me to lose 70 pounds in a single year. I found myself depressed and not wanting to spend time with friends. Once I began treatment I saw and felt improvements right away and continued to get better each time I went! Because of NAET I got a job and returned to college part-time. I can eat all food without triggering any abdominal discomfort or pain!”
 
SEAN 24
Hay Fever Caused by Milk Allergy
“I suffered from hay fever ever since my childhood. I was told by other medical professionals that I could reduce the symptoms by drugs, but not eliminate them. Then I studied NAET and found out that I was very allergic to milk. I drank two glasses of milk daily. When I was treated with therapy for my milk allergy, my lifelong bout of hay fever left me. I am free again to enjoy milk without being bothered by my hay fever it was a holistic medicine experience.”
