I'm going to do this in several different parts because it's long- and all recently learned things that are all fitting together in the past few days.
Like I just said in a post just down from here, my husband and I are both continuing to learn new stuff about our selves through the process of working on becoming healthier, and reaching a better state of wellness "wholistically".
"None of this is cheap", as Newport said in one of his many good posts...
And for that reason, because it's been costing us money each month in trying to get my health online, the focus hasn't been so much on my husband's health. He was going to wait until we had me healthier, and further along in my healing processes before he started having the Alt. Health Dr. check him out. He's been very interested in all the Alt. Health Dr. has done with me, the muscle testing especially, which has shown time and again that it really is effective. I had a Chiropractor/Instructor that had used the Applied Kinesiology for years in her practice, and she taught it at the Massage Therapy School I attended. It was the first that my husband had ever heard of it, or seen it used, and he's watched with interest each month when I have my sessions with the Dr, muscle testing for parasites
and what is showing to be most the most effective herbal/homeopathic product and dosage each month- and it does change, it's been interesting, and accurate.
I was continually impressed at Massage Therapy school, by the different instructors that had done body work/alternative health modalities for years. It never ceased to amaze me how they would instinctively know what was going on in a person, and their hands would go right to that spot without the person saying anything about it. The Alt. Health Dr. we were lucky to find has been practicing different modalities/techniques for years, and has that same innate instict. He's been telling my husband and I both that we really need to come in sometime in the future and do the food sensitivity
I took a bottle of oats with me that last time I went to see if it was something ok for me to eat or not- and the surprise was...I was fine-- but when he tested my husband, out of curiousity- my husband tested bad for it! He told us we should come home and do our own muscle testing, testing other foods on both of us --oh my gosh! Does my husband have food sensitivites! He's known for years he hasn't felt "up to par", tiredness, has had bloating/gas, feeling like he's always got a low grade fever, not able to sleep soundly- definetly sleep apnea, he wakes me up.. elevated bilirubin in blood tests, but nothing the Dr's could find for the reason- & he gave up on Dr's a long time ago.
When I was having all the medical tests, an endoscopy showed in a biopsy that I have celiac, confirmed with a blood tests, which was a surprise to me. However, it is something that runs in families- and although I didn't have "symptoms", that I had known of, when I started learning more about it, I found out that the rash that is associated with Celiac, "Dermatitis Herpetiformis" was something my brother has taken a potent medicine for for years- thinking it was a blood disorder.. he swears the Dr's never told him it was Celiac, but I can remember 25 years ago when they thought it might be scabies, caused from working around cattle on a ranch--and my mother saying that the Dr's said he was allergic to wheat. All these years, he's never cut out gluten...he's continued to take the potent medicine for "a blood disorder", and he has to have regular blood tests because the medicine is known to cause liver damage and thyroid problems--which it has..but he has continued to eat whatever he wants. Then again, he's an alcoholic, knowing he has liver damage, and continues to drink--and has a stomach that hurts, but continues to chew/swallow a can of copenhagen a day, which he's done for 35 years. He was also told that there is scar tissue in the small intestines, and food isn't able to pass through as it should--- hmmm.
I just found this in the description on the Celiac Forum last night, and it puts some pieces of my puzzle together, concerning the shape my liver has been in. It does all go hand in hand, and why I say there's a whole big picture to look at, and why parasite
cleansing is just one part of the process. I've also cleaned a lot of stones out of my liver, no gallbladder (which most likely didn't need to come out), haven't eaten gluten products for almost 2 years, and have made other changes to my diet...
Celiac/ liver stones
About Celiac Disease
"Celiac disease (also called coeliac, nontropical sprue, celiac sprue, gluten intolerant enteropathy, or gluten sensitive enteropathy) is a condition in which there is a chronic reaction to certain protein chains, commonly referred to as glutens, found in some cereal grains (wheat, spelt, rai,...). This reaction causes destruction of the villi in the small intestine, with resulting malabsorption of nutrients. Individuals range from having no symptoms (asymptomatic or "latent" forms of the disease) to extreme cases where patients present to their physicians with gas, bloating, diarrhea, and weight loss due to malabsorption."
"Dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) is a severely itchy skin condition that often starts abruptly, affecting the elbows, knees, buttocks, scalp, and back. It usually starts as little bumps that can become tiny blisters and then are usually scratched off. DH can occur in only one spot, but more often appears in several areas.
The condition is related to IgA deposits under the skin. These occur as a result of ingesting gluten. These deposits take a long time to clear up, even when the patient is on a gluten-free diet."
There are many people who cured Celiac disease by cleansing liver & gallbladder.
That is understandable, when we know that the liver gets "first pickings" of everything absorbed in the small intestine, which is where virtually all nutrients are absorbed, including glutens.
If you've got celiac disease, you have liver and gall bladder malfunction due to numerous intrahepatic stones and/or gallstones.
Celiac disease is caused by primary liver stones
In most people with Gallstones
problem, intrahepatic stones were first.
If you have gallstones, you have liver stones
. Always. Proved by cleansing.
I have never heard of a person who only have gallstones, and no liver stones.
Every single person who did liver cleanse (after gallbladder removal) have got liver stones out (after liver was decongested).
Usually thousands of stones.
So, there is direct link between intrahepatic stones, celiac disease and gallstones, not necessarily casual link.
Intrahepatic stones are usually the first to start forming, or in the same time as Gallstones
Intrahepatic stones block liver function and intestinal function.
Intrahepatic stones cause allergies and celiac disease.
Intrahepatic stones may be sucked into gallbladder, while naturally passing by, through main bile duct (after a fatty meal), and may be joining stones that are already there - genuine gallstones, or may be the first stones to be inside gallbladder.
As most scientist are not aware of how common are liver stones, but they are aware of the statistical link between incidence of Gallstones
and incidence celiac disease, they may be attempting to make an explanation of a casual relationship between those two diseases, while missing a very important part of a whole equation. Almost 50% of a whole equation is missing! Poor science!
Liver Anatomy: The Hepatic Vascular System
The circulatory system of the liver is unlike that seen in any other organ. Of great importance is the fact that a majority of the liver's blood supply is venous blood! The pattern of blood flow in the liver can be summarized as follows:
Roughly 75% of the blood entering the liver is venous blood from the portal vein.
Importantly, all of the venous blood returning from the small intestine, stomach, pancreas and spleen converges into the portal vein.
One consequence of this is that the liver gets "first pickings" of everything absorbed in the small intestine, which, as we will see, is where virtually all nutrients are absorbed.
The remaining 25% of the blood supply to the liver is arterial blood from the hepatic artery.
Body Cleansing (Celiac Disease)
Now, let's start with body cleansing. Body cleansing is extremely important part of every prevention and curing program. You are guessing: "Dietary changes you made are also a form of cleansing." But, most people need more then this, especially when it comes to liver health. Body Cleansing is even important for children. Our internal organs can hold a lot toxins, and sometimes, it is impossible to get those toxins out, without doing cleansing. Our liver can contain hundreds of intrahepatic stones. Those stones will block bile flow, and affect the bases of your health, your digestion. Another problem are parasites. You must learn as much as possible about parasites. And, don't forget also dental toxins.
