Millions of people suffer from celiac disease without even being aware of their condition. Celiac disease is characterized by intolerance to gluten, the protein in wheat, barley, rye that triggers an immune reaction against self where the body begins to attacks its own intestines.


Natural Remedy for Celiac Disease on the Horizon


American and British scientists claim that they have now identified the reason as to why gluten is toxic and hence can try out natural remedy for celiac disease to counter it. A study was conducted in which 200 participants suffering from celiac disease were given boiled barley, rye muffins and bread to eat. They were subjected to blood test after a period of 6 days. The blood sample was investigated for immune response.


The result of the study revealed that of the 2,700 fragments of proteins that gluten contains, 90 are toxic. Among the 90, 3 identified fragments have been particularly isolated in connection with being responsible for immune response to gluten and symptoms of celiac disease. The study has since then been published in journal Science Translational Medicine.


This discovery has given rise to research work for finding a natural remedy for celiac disease. Nexpep, Melbourne bio-tech company has already come up with a new natural remedy for celiac disease in the form of a jab. The new natural remedy desensitizes people against gluten. Thus once this injection is taken, celiac disease sufferers will not experience the symptoms of the disease like vomiting, stomach cramps, diarrhea, osteoporosis and malnutrition among others.
