What happens in Celiac Disease?

The small intestines are lined with villi. The function of the villi is to absorb the nutrients present in the food that we eat. When the villi get damaged from the immune response of a patient suffering from celiac disease, the absorption of the nutrients is hindered. This loss leads to deficiencies of minerals, vitamins, and other nutrients. The cause of celiac disease is not yet fully clear. Genetic predisposition may increase the risk for celiac disease. Genes linked to celiac disease are HLA DQ2 and HLA DQ8. Celiac disease often runs in families.

    Hello Doctor Sharma

    I am Yasir Hamid from Pakistan. I want to discuss the case of my wife who has been suffering from Wheat Allergy/Celiac Disease since its childhood. And probably because of this, she is underweight and patient of anemia. Few years back, she also underwent antiviral treatment for Hepatitis C. Before treatment, she had HB level 4. And before the Hep C treatment, She had 2 pints of blood to improve HB before Hep C treatment. Now she has severe constipation and other digestion issues with 9 HB currently. Few months back, she was diagnosed with Wheat Allergy. Please guide me regarding following questions:
    1: Is Celliac Disease curable in Homeopathy and if yes what is the duration of the treatment?
    2:Will the weight, HB level and iron deficiency be improved?
    3: Which homeopathic medicine is best for Celiac Disease?

  2. Furqan Shahid says:

    you’ve got it all wrong. In the Irish celiac’s hits the kidneys and nothing else. this is built on the work of Dr Coeliac who found it only in the Irish and Dr. Addison who found wheat was its cause. Its a kidney thing. My blood was tested after my kidneys shut down and it was found that my blood had built up antibodies as a weapon against the wheat. thousands of irish died in the united States around the ago of 40 after eating USA wheat. Dr Addison became persona non grata when he opposed ww2 but his work has saved many irish lives.

    If one with celiac takes the homeopathics… they still need to strictly follow the dietary protocols. My 23 year old nephew has had celiac for about 10 years. He is very strict. But there is also fear that he struggles with in case somehow gluten comes near him. It is no way to live for a young person. And then travelling and restuarants is so limiting. From what I understand celiac you absolutely cannot have gluten or it sets you back. However…..if one takes homeopathics as an example…..can this help so that no damage is created if one has gluten accidentially.

  7. Hello,
    I got diagnosed with celiac disease and gerd 2 years ago. Even though I have been trying my best to take care of my body with food sometimes I fail. I know for celiac there isn’t any treatment but I definitely want treat my GERD because it really stops me from enjoying the food I once I enjoyed. As for celiac if there is anything that helps with symptoms and stop or slow the damage of the villi then I’ll gladly take it. I’m also low on vitamin D and other vitamins. I’m anemic and have iron deficiency as well. Thank you! And one last thing I have thyroid as well. And take medicine for it.
