In 2005 or so, I was diagnosed by stool test as positive for gluten intolerance. The symptoms I had at the time were sensations of early fullness when eating, constipation, anxiety, and overall poor health. I went on a gluten free diet, which improved my symptoms almost immediately, I would say within two weeks. I was gluten free for 3 years until I came across an alternative energy-based treatment for allergies called NAET. I’ve talked about NAET in a previous post. After several treatments for a wide array of allergens, I was re-tested by muscle testing (Applied Kinesiology) and found to be free of the gluten intolerance. I started eating gluten again, and was free of the symptoms I had in the past.
I started eating gluten again for a few years, and then had an endoscopy for some other stomach problems I’d been having (nausea perhaps due to benzo withdrawal syndrome). They took a biopsy (tissue sample) and tested for Celiac and H.pylori. They both came back negative. So to recap: in 2005, a stool test showed positive for gluten intolerance, and in 2009, I had a biopsy that was negative for Celiac and gluten intolerance.
I believe what these tests showed was that going off of gluten for 3 years, and having NAET treatments, helped heal my gut of the inflammation and sensitivity to gluten. However, introducing gluten back into my diet may not have been the best thing for me back then, and today I still adhere to a gluten free diet. Let’s keep the gut healed and not regress. More updates to come.
