Celiac, or coeliac, a form of gluten intolerance is an autoimmune disease where the body develops an autoimmune response against gluten-a protein composite of gliadin and glutenin, which it falsely assumes to be a harmful substance.
Gluten is found mainly in wheat, gluten, rye, barley, bread, cereals, etc
This diseases mainly runs in families so a person with celiac disease is likely to have a family history of celiac disease.
The presence of genes HLA DQ2 and HLA DQ8 is responsible for causing celiac disease. Either both or any one of these genes can be present in a person with celiac disease.
Though the presence of these genes itself not indicate that one will have celiac disease. A person may have it triggered and get it to become active during pregnancy, surgery, childbirth, infection or even stress.
How the Body Reacts to Gluten Intolerance?
When half-digested food enters the small intestine for additional processing, it starts seeing gluten as a harmful substance and strikes an autoimmune response.
This response involves the production of antibodies which cause the small intestines to get inflamed during the process.
As the lining of small intestines is made up of villi or small tube-shaped growths that help increase the area for digestion, this inflammation causes villi to flatten out reducing the area available for digestion.
As a consequence, despite a healthy diet one may not be able to absorb nutrients, minerals or vitamins properly which may lead to malabsorption and some other health concerns.
Since it runs in families celiac disease is not completely curable but can be managed well with homeopathy.

As homeopathic treatment is individualized for your own unique symptoms, you are sure to receive the best management possible.
Under Western medical system, you will be prescribed with a predefined set of remedies which will be administered for each patient alike.
On the contrary, natural treatments such as homeopathy respect your uniqueness and prescribe remedies according to your own unique analysis.
This means a homeopath may ask you a lot of questions unless she is sure that the prescription finalized can well work through your root cause.
Though in further follow-ups your prescription may be modified it is a clear indication that the efforts are succeeding in the right direction.
Using conventional medicines may suppress the symptoms and though may provide instant relief but may alter the natural body processes and cause serious health concerns.
All the homeopathic remedies for celiac disease work by stimulating your body’s natural vital force for the self-healing to take place.
This is the very reason that you will see no side effects.
How do Infants Respond to Celiac Disease?
Celiac disease can be a big source of concern for infants since as a parent you must have to be very careful about the type of treatment you introduce them to.
In babies, the symptoms may show up when they are introduced with solid food containing gluten. They may not be able to absorb vitamins, minerals or nutrients.
So as soon as you get a slight inkling of your child showing these symptoms, consult a homeopath.
• Skin rash

At this age, if you plan to go for chemical drugs(as used in western medicine system) addition care has to be taken as it can affect their growth hormones and may cause various other side effects.
