What is Celiac?

TheCeliac Disease is an allergy, a sensitivity of the small intestines concerning the protein GLUTEN which is lifelong and becomes chronic. Cereals like wheat, barley, rye and oat contain GLUTEN.

Food is dissociated in the small intestines into its components and enters blood over the mucosa of the intestines. Convolutions in the intestines which are called VİLLUS protrusions and which are present in the small intestines in great numbers ensure that our bodies receive sufficient food. Because of the allergy within the mucosa of their intestines the villus protrusions and convolutions of persons suffering from celiac who have consumed food contain in gluten are reduced due to damages and get smaller. Because of this the surface of the intestines constantly decreases and food consumed more and more becomes in-absorbable. As a result, lack of nutrition and respective indications of illnesses occur.

Treatment Method

The only treatment method for celiac patients is a strict GLUTEN-FREE diet. By maintaining the strict diet the flattened surface of the small intestines retrieves its normal form and function. Even small amounts of consumed gluten lead to a repetition of the damages in the intestines.

Under normal circumstances the celiac patient has no complaints during the application of the gluten free diet. After the way of nourishment is changed normally the complaints are reduced noticeably within a short period. The period within which complaints are eliminated varies depending on the level of damages in the small intestines, the age of the patient and other factors.

Noticeable complaints due to food containing gluten mostly occur after long periods in some cases even after years. Not keeping a strict diet or even ending it can lead to severe illnesses the treatment of which is much more difficult.  Celiac cannot be treated with bio resonance or alternative medical methods. As of the year of 2014 the only known and proved method of treatment is a GLUTEN FREE DIET.

The non existence of noticeable complaints in case of the patient not keeping up a strict diet does not mean at all that the patient should give up his gluten free diet.
