Q: I feel ill all the time, I think I am reacting to gluten, yet my tests all come back negative. What is going on?
Q: I am coeliac and don’t eat any gluten but I am not healing and still feel ill. Why?
Q:I have tons of food allergies/intolerances/sensitivities/a leaky gut/low SIgA/gluten sensitivity/coeliac disease/can’t eat this, that or the other. How can I find out what is going on, become less sensitive, stop developing more and start getting better?
Is that more like you?
I have been researching gluten illness, coeliac disease, non-coeliac gluten sensitivity and gluten intolerance for 18 months now. I have set up a dedicated site at TrulyGlutenFree.co.uk to answer all your questions and guide you through a step by step information and treatment process.
There, you will find help to
- recognise if your problem is related to gluten
- find out what kind of gluten illness that might be
- test effectively
- discover why current tests and treatment are fundamentally flawed (in my opinion!)
- follow a step by step treatment plan
The site is for you if..
- you have been diagnosed with gluten or grain sensitivity, intolerance or allergy
- you suspect you have non-coeliac gluten sensitivity, gluten syndrome or grain intolerance (well done, you’ve heard of it; you now need to know how to confirm it!)
- you have tested positive or negative to coeliac/celiac disease (some reckon the test for CD is not accurate enough so even if you failed, you can still have the gene pattern, and you can have NCGS with or without CD.)
- you aren’t getting better on a traditional gluten-free diet (you’ll see why – ALL grains contain gluten and you may be sensitive to more than just those that contain gliadin!)
- you simply feel you have an issue with gluten or grains in some way (this is where I was, no tests came back positive but I just KNEW)
- you just feel ill and no-one can get to the bottom of why (I have found NCGS is often at the heart of the issue with people who have tons of health issues, seemingly not connected; your immune system just cannot pick up.)
- you have or are at risk of an auto-immune disease (gluten is thought by some to be the one common denominator in ALL auto-immune disorders eg diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis etc).
A Quick Intro
As a clinical practitioner specialising in – and suffering from – allergy and intolerance, coeliac disease and non-coeliac gluten sensitivity, over the last 20-odd years, the most common type of questions I got asked were those above.
At various stages, all three were me too.
So, having stopped seeing patients now, I set out to answer those questions with the TGF site. I was stunned when I started looking into the reasons why coeliacs don’t heal, just how unreliable the current tests are, what other forms of gluten illness exist (which are far more common than coeliac disease) and what damage gluten causes, particularly the link between multiple intolerance, inflammation and auto-immunity.
I started TrulyGlutenFree originally to record my findings about gluten and gluten-related illnesses. After thoroughly searching for and poring over the research available, I came to the conclusion that we needed an effective treatment programme to redress the damage done by gluten rather than to just avoid traditional gliadin gluten grains.
Most of us gluten-sensitives have multiple intolerance, leaky body barriers, not least the gut, inflammation and malabsorption. Importantly, we are also at greater risk of auto-immunity, heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, you name it. Just avoiding gliadin didn’t seem to be enough. For me anyway.
So, over the past year, I have developed the Barrier Plan to correct what I think is going on in the body. Myself and my patients have been using it with some success for months. It is not a quick fix but at least we have somewhere to start now. I have decided to make the Barrier Plan available to you. For free.
