Celiac disease , Wheat Allergy (GLUTEN SENSITIVE ENTEROPATHY)
Celiac disease or Wheat Allergy is a serious autoimmune disease that occurs in genetically predisposed people where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. It is estimated to affect 1 in 100 people worldwide. Two and one-half million Americans are undiagnosed and are at risk for long-term health complications.
It is an autoimmune disorder. Genes combined with eating foods with gluten and other factors can contribute to celiac disease but the precise cause isn’t known. Infant feeding practises, GI infections and gut bacteria might contribute, as well. Sometimes celiac diseases becomes active after surgery, pregnancy, child birth, viral infection or severe emotional stress.

Calcaneal spur is an extremely common condition especially among females. It starts initially with a slight discomfort in the heel area while walking and generally gets ignored until it becomes extremely painful to keep the footing on the floor. The condition is named after the heel bone called the calcaneum, which slightly overgrows or gets some calcium depositions on it leading to formation of a small prickly structure of bone called a ‘spur’.
The calcium deposition is the main causation and that could be due to taking high calcium content foods and even high intake of calcium supplements (whether required or not). There could be a few risk factors that can trigger the formation of a calcaneal spur. One of the most important of which is being overweight and wearing footwear with high heels.
The extra bony tuberosity (or spur) actually presses the plantar fascia (the covering of the heel) whenever we use our feet. When this pressure taking capacity of the facia decreases and the tension on the fascia with constant pressure intensifies with every passing day, it results in the inflammation of the fascia and patient experiences tremendous pain, the condition is called Plantar Fasciitis. It is this plantar fasciitis which needs to be treated with medicines conservatively.
Homoeopathic medicines can in a very short span of time relieve the inflammation, pain and discomfort that a calcaneal spur brings about. The bony excrescence doesn’t get shrunken or broken or dissolved on its own, it is with Homoeopathic medicines and following all the dos and don’ts that the complete resolution of the spur can be achieved. There is no need to go for surgical cutting of the bony spur as it not only is a tedious task but also not a fruitful exercise for the patient in the long run.
Some of the extremely useful Homoeopathic medicines for Calcaneal Spur are – Rhus Tox, Ruta, Cyclamen, Aranea Diadema, Calc. Fluor, etc.
- Serology testing-Looks for antibodies in your blood. Elevated level of certain antibody protein indicate an immune reaction to gluten. tTG
- Genetic testing for human leukocyte antigens (HA-DQ2 and HLA-DQ8)can be used to rule out celiac disease.
