Celiac disease is a chronic intestinal disease in which your small intestine is hypersensitive to the protein gluten, which is found in the cereals wheat, rye, oats, spelt, kamut and barley. Hypersensitivity to a food product is called food intolerance. We do not (yet) know exactly how celiac disease develops, but what we do know is that it does not go away. If you are hypersensitive to gluten you will remain so for the rest of your life. But even though you do not have celiac disease you may have another problem with gluten namely a lack of enzymes to break down the exorphins/ exorphins in gluten.
BeterKliniek is the clinic for Integrative Medicine that bridges regular and non-regular medicine.
An van Veen (physician) and Michael van Gils (therapist) look for the cause of a condition or disease. That is where the treatment starts otherwise, as people often say, it is 'carrying water to the sea'. We call this cause medicine. Sometimes it is also desirable to treat the symptoms (at the same time). We call this symptom medicine.
Chronic disorders often have their cause in epi- genetics. You can schedule a free informative telephone consultation (phone number 040-7117337 until 1 p.m.) at BeterKliniek to discuss your symptoms so that we can provide you with further advice.
