What the leymen terms it as wheat allergy, he labels as something which restricts the patient of eating wheat for now and ever and supposes that the whole life is supposed to be without wheat but thanks, not so with homeopathy! Also called gluten-sensitive enteropathy and celiac sprue, celiac disease is an autoimmune digestive disorder, wherein the consumption of gluten-based foods leads to damage to the tissues that line the small intestine. This hinders the ability of your body to absorb the essential nutrients from the foods you eat.

What happens inside -

  • Under normal conditions, the immune system of the body offers protection against external intruders.
  • When individuals diagnosed with celiac disease consume gluten-based foods, gluten resistant antibodies are formed by the immune system.
  • This causes them to attack the linings around the intestines, thus causing irritation in the digestive tract and harming the villi (hair-like structures on the covering of the small intestine which absorb nutrients from the food).
  • This impairs the nutrient absorbing capacity of the individual, thus increasing chances of malnourishment.


Though there are a lot of supposed causes for this disease, mainstream medicine has not been able to verify any of them as Sureshot one. Thereby, standing still in dark regards cause as well as the cure for it.

However, homeopathy, with the psychosomatic researches in recent decades, believes anger ruling the subconscious mind through the incidences faced in life or by mother during pregnancy to be a predisposing and causative reason for this disease. This becomes still more useful as the patients prescribed on such approach respond well to treatment and are able to digest and assimilate wheat in a couple of months of treatment.

Symptoms -

  • The celiac sprue usually gets diagnosed in patients especially children from Not gaining weight/ height for age with anemia and easy fatigue

  • This is a disease which weakens the bones and causes fractures. It is caused because of a deficiency of Vitamin D and calcium.
  • Intestinal Cancer Other birth defects: Such as irregular spinal shape because of the deficiency of certain nutrients, especially folic acid.

Homeopathic Treatment For Celiac Disease -

The homeopathic approach of treating celiac disease is an individual form patient to patient. For a classical homeopath like us, no patient resembles the previous one. Each one has a different story and thus, has to be studied individually. However, the state of mind, anger and mental sensitivity of patient are the foremost for a homoeopath to prescribe successfully. Homeopathy identifies celiac disease to be a hypersensitive state due to immunological reactivity controlled by a genetic tendency and treats it accordingly.

The homeopathic medicines target at controlling the over-reaction of the body to gluten and also aimed at controlling the symptoms. Some of the commonly used medicines are Silica, Phosphorus, Kali carbonicum, Thuja occidentalis, Sulphur, Lycopodium clavatum, etc. but this list is never to be considered as exhausting.
