WHAT IS CELIAC DISEASE, AND HOW TO PREVENT?

Celiac disease is a digestive disorder in which the immune system reacts to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.

Some of the classic symptoms or indicators of the disease are: bloating, weight loss, loss of appetite and chronic diarrhea. In addition to digestive trouble, some people also exhibit other symptoms including anemia, loss of bone density, itchy or blistery skin rash, headaches, fatigue, joint pain, acid reflux, irregular menstrual periods, tooth discoloration, infertility. But, the symptoms can vary from person to person.

There’s no cure for celiac disease, but this does not mean that having celiac disease is the end of the world. You just need to be a bit more careful with what you eat and you can easily manage symptoms and promote intestinal healing.

VERY IMPORTANT: Eliminate Gluten from Your Diet!

A strict, lifelong gluten-free diet is one of the most important things you need to do when dealing with this celiac disease. Once you remove gluten from your diet, the inflammation in the small intestine reduces gradually. This in turn reduces the severity of the symptoms and you start feeling better.

It’s important to know that wheat and all of its forms are not the only foods that contain gluten.

NOTE: Once you have substituted gluten-rich grains with gluten-free grains, it’s time to gain knowledge about products with hidden gluten.

Drink Aloe Vera Juice

Aloe vera is beneficial for people suffering from celiac disease. It helps heal the inflammation of the small intestine, facilitate tissue repair, and promote proper digestion.

When taken daily, this natural anti-inflammatory agent helps soothe the irritation in the digestive system and restore balance in the gut. This in turn regulates gastrointestinal pH balance, while improving gastrointestinal motility and keeping the system regular.

Directions:

Blend together 2 tablespoons of fresh aloe vera gel. Any citrus juice or just water in a blender.

Warning: Do not take more than 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel in a day as it may cause gastrointestinal discomforts!
