I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2009 and have also gradually developed other food intolerances since then. My latest blood tests have shown very high levels of IgG antibody levels that I think are causing the increase in food intolerance issues.
Carotech's SupraBio tocotrienols that I have been taking 2x/day since 2008 in LEF's Super Absorbable Tocotrienols product and in Jarrow's Toco-sorb product have been found to greatly increase ttg-IgG antibody levels. See: http://www.nature.com/ejcn/journal/v65/n1/pdf/ejcn2010184a.pdf
I've now stopped taking SupraBio tocotrienols with the hope that my IgG antibodies will come back down and result in me having fewer food issues.

I've been taking LDA shots for about it year and have found it to be somewhat beneficial for various food intolerance. The therapy is designed to train the t-cells not to overreact to various allergens, both food and environmental. You may be able to find a physician near you in this listing. The protocol does not, however, help celiac disease itself.

Donatello65,
Thanks for the info on the "LDA Therapy."
I've discovered that Coenzyme  Q10 also raises IgG antibody levels here: http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/pdq/cam/coenzymeQ10/HealthProfessional/page3
So I'm giving up CoQ10 as well as the Carotech's SupraBio Tocotrienols for now with the idea that maybe my IgG antibody levels will drop and result in fewer food intolerances. Besides gluten, I've aquired issues with rice, cucumber, winter squash, nightshade plant vegetables, carrots, sweet potatoes, all fruit, dairy, coffee, and chocolate.
I'm also trying to rotate the foods in my diet to provide a wider range of allergens for my immune system to look at which I think is the basis for your "LDA Therapy."

My mother has celiac disease.  One supplement that I make sure she gets is folic acid ( 5 Methylfolate ) because most people get it in fortified bread.  I also get her probiotics.  Most people with celiac disease have digestion issues, and leaky gut . Digestive enzymes can also be helpful.
