Celiac disease (gluten sensitivity/intolerance) and homeopathy


Celiac disease is greatly treated with the help of homeopathic medicines. Homeopathic medicines are truly natural and harmless which cause no side effects unlike conventional medicines.  These homeopathic medicines are prescribed to the patient on the basis of constitution and individuality.


It is called as celiac sprue or gluten sensitive enteropathy. Which is basically an immune reaction to consuming gluten ( a protein found in the grain of wheat/barley/rye )Eating gluten can trigger immune response in small intestine.


The exact cause is not found. Our genes linked with eating food, gluten and other factors (gastrointestinal infections, feeding practices/gut bacteria) can contribute to celiac disease.

When body’s own immune system overreacts to gluten in food, the reaction leads to the damage which happens at the level of villi in the small intestines.

Villi absorbs the vitamin, minerals and other nutrients from the food we eat.

If they are damaged, one cannot get enough nutrients, no matter how much we eat.
