5yr old celiac, tooth decayCan anyone help with how to help our 5 year old please?
She has not been tested but we are sure she is celiac, her symptoms are the following when in contact with gluten in even trace amounts -
Change in bowel movements
Weeping itchy painful rash on back of knees, thighs & elbows
Loss of appetite
Rash around mouth
She also now has tooth decay, from what we have read this is due to the problems in the bowel and malabsorbsion associated with celiac and leaky gut
We give her Aloe drink, bone broth, fermented cod liver oil and dairy to heal the gut and remineralise the teeth.
We are really worried about her gut and teeth so please let me know what we can do to help her,
Many many thanks :)

This to be given on a single day only.
One dose would be 3 drops of remedy in some 10 ml of water sipped up in empty stomach. No food or water one hour before or after.
Let me know after a week if she responded to Nux Vom.
