Natural Support & Complications of Celiac Disease, Brisbane Australia

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Are you trying to find out about celiac disease – complications to avoid and how can we live a long and healthy life with Celiac disease?  Celiacs is a disease which attacks the intestinal wall when there is gluten in the diet…  we find, in our natural therapies clinic, that there is much that can be done to support the main symptoms initially, and healing and creating long-term health after the symptoms have eased.

Firstly, have you been tested and found out you have celiac?  Or have you suffered all of the symptoms but have been tested and found that it’s negative.  Did you know that of the gluten intolerant people  in Australia (of which ALL of the symptoms of celiac can be found) only around 3% are actually celiac.  Up to 97% of people who have gluten intolerance have a wide variety of the symptoms.  There are many false readings, even with a full small intestinal biopsy test.

Symptoms of celiac disease:

  • tummy pain
  • general malabsorption of our diet
  • losing weight
  • feeling sickly and ‘off’ a lot, nausea
  • nutritional deficiencies such as iron, B12 and vitamin D
  • magnesium, calcium and potassium deficiences
  • constipation and/or diarrhoea (more often loose bowels)
  • zinc, fibre, B vitamin deficiency
  • long term: various immune system issues and much higher risk of cancers

What can be done naturally at New Leaf Natural Therapies?

  1. reducing stress through Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM), Kinesiology and Massage
  2. Healing the gut lining with FSM and nutritional supplements for gut repair
  3. start reversing the chronic fatigue with FSM, Kinesiology and nutritional supplements
  4. supporting weight gain or weight loss with better gut absorption
  5. allergy testing using kinesiology to determine other foods/substances causing gut issues

What tests can we do to find how ‘out of whack’ the system is, and to monitor improvement?

  • Live Blood Analysis
  • Helicobacter
  • Candida
  • Allergy Testing
  • Bioimpedance analysis (finding inflammation levels – impact on gut healing)
