Celiac Disease can be triggered by Candida and can damage the central nervous system.
There are several synonyms for the disease: celiac sprue,
gluten-sensitive enteropathy, gluten-induced enteropathy and
Celiac Sprue is triggered by gluten proteins from wheat in susceptible people. The cell walls of Candida contain the same protein sequence as wheat gluten and may trigger or simulate Celiac.
I became sensitive to gluten when I had a Candida overgrowth. Research shows that a large percentage of the population has mild to moderate sensitivity to gluten.
The acronym for grains containing gluten is B.R.O.W. That stands for Barley, Rye, Oats and Wheat. Even after you cure your Candida overgrowth, it is wise to avoid these grains.
People of Irish descent are far more likely to get gluten-sensitive enteropathy than others and should be extra cautious to avoid Candida infections and treat them aggressively if they occur.
Since Celiac Disease can be triggered by Candida, you should start on one of the Candida treatments. The natural cure uses herbs and supplements to get the Candida under control. The medicine page describes how to use pharmaceuticals to kill the Candida. I always recommend the natural Candida cure since pharmaceutical anti-fungals are hard on your liver.
You also need to keep a journal of everything you eat and how you feel two hours later. This journal is critical in determining what foods you should avoid and what foods you can eat.
Any food that makes you feel ill, tired or bloated should be removed from your diet until the treatment program is complete. Also any food that creates cravings instead of filling you up should be avoided.
If you have the desire to eat grains that contain gluten after you are Candida free, make sure you perform the Challenge Phase of the Candida diet to see if you are sensitive or not.
Using a treatment program and keeping a journal your eating habits will help you get the Candida overgrowth under control. Since Celiac may be triggered by excess Candida, you may also be rid of Celiac Disease for good.
