    Hi from Mary Wier in Chattanooga TN, I found your site todays while researching
    alpha lipoic acid for neuropathy in daibetics–my spouse and I went gluten free when we read the book Wheatbelly by Dr. Davis, cardiologist, who found that he could cure most things in his patients by getting them on gluten free diet, which he cured himself of diabetes, etc. He was diagnosed with gluten sensitivity but a third of his book covers celiac because of the wheat. His description of the modern wheat of today
    is really eye opening. but I wanted to say here that do you know about the substitutes that are in
    gluten free cookies, breads and crackers on the market? We really relied on these first 2 years
    since we missed bread and the like. His book warned of these substitute carbs such as: tapioca starch, potato starch, corn starch, rice flour that they use to make all these gluten free items. When I saw Dr. Davis on Atlanta PBS telethon, he spoke more on avoiding the gluten free products. so I started all ,over with the diet, being more strict, no wheat, no sugar, no gluten free treats! this marks 6 weeks for me doing his diet for real. It is hard for us as we still like sweets. I am struggling but I did find that this winter we had NO colds and this spring I had NO pollen reactions! The neuropathy thing is big with diabetics so I thought I’d respond to your site, since I have had some strange tingling toes since being stricter on the
    diet, I heard on the Wheatbelly blog that the nerves may tingle when they are healing, so I amhoping for that. My research tonight was on the potato, which I find is a treasure trove of newly known nutrients
    and I got my anxiety rate down today by eating baked potato with toppings. This had happened before so tonight I googled it and found that potassium is the key to lowering heart rate to normal. But the
    alpha lipoic acid healing of neuropathy came up as this lipoic acid was isolated from potatoes.
    I have my spouse on supplement alpha lipoic acid for glucose control, it is essential and I take a liquid form of it. Just thinking that Lipoic acid might help any celiac neuropathy—-sincerely, Mary Wier in Chattanooga.

      Hi Mary,
      Thanks for stopping by and sharing all of the information you have learned about neuropathies.
      I agree with you that it’s best to take a “whole foods” approach, especially when one first starts on the GF diet. This is actually referred to as the Fasano Diet now in the celiac world.
      That is wonderful that you’ve been so healthy all winter and it sounds like it is much more than coincidence.
      I am not familiar with using alpha lipoic acid for neuropathies, but I will definitely read and learn more about it.
      Thank you.
      I really appreciate that you took the time to write and help others.

        Hi. I am in the process of educating myself about IBS. I have been diagnosed with Lymphocytic Colitis. It seems as if everything I eat makes me feel sick & nauseaus. I definitely suffer from “brain fog”. I am constantly misplacing things, it’s hard to comprehend and articulate, I even have a hard time cooking – which I use to love – but now I struggle. I have to do things in ” ABC – Barney” style & tell myself what I just did and what my next step is. I’ve had to resort to using post-it notes for almost everything I do.I recently had to go to an “Anytime Lab” and order my own blood work testing for different autoimmune diseases. I am at a loss as to why my pcp wouldn’t order necessary tests. I see my GI doctor for the first time on Sept. 15, 2015. This will be the first visit since my endoscopy/colonoscopy was performed in July!!!! Very disappointed in our healthcare system. Thanks again for the info. I will look into Alpha Lipoic Acid.

    I appreciate your work and wish MORE doctors, especially in the Veteran’s Affairs system! Understood Celiac. I was 58 when I figured it out for myself. I’m fighting a new battle in our war to live with Celiac and appreciate if you’d pass the word. I had the first DEDICATED GF restaurant in the State of Mississippi but only lasted six months… poor health, lack of family support, lack of money and poor timing. The new group is for networking other restaurant and bakery owners be successful. Mentoring and learning from one another so that we can have @Dedicated Good Food for Celiac Nationwide!
