Sadly, it's not curable, only managable. He has to stop eating all wheat gluten, plain and simple.

Usually, the younger the person the quicker the response. It took me till I was around 56 years old ( 5 years ago ) to clue in. Plus there can be a host of other problems that can spring up due to gluten sensitivity----like allergies, chronic fatigue, low stomach acid, H pylori problems, low stores of vitamins & minerals, skin and dental problems plus if there is a severe yeast, mold or fungi problem, a person MIGHT never recover unless this problem is addressed.

Yeah - and the only "cure" for gluten intolerance or celiac disease is a gluten-free diet... and as can pointed out, other health issues may be present which need to be winnowed out and addressed. Bear in mind that the word "gluten" is a compilation of these three proteins:

hordein - found in barley
secalin - found in rye
gliadin* - found in wheat

Oats are also questionable in the United States because they are grown, harvested and processed alongside the other grains, and are subject to a lot of cross-contamination. There are special oats available which have been grown, harvested and processed separately and are therefore more safe to eat. I just checked Google after entering "gluten-free recipes" and there were 3,580,000 hits! People are slowly realizing that gluten-free or even grain-free living eliminates many of their health problems.

*gliadin is used in laboratory testing because it can stand up to testing better than the other proteins, hence "Antigliadin antibody testing," etc. instead of "Antihordein antibody testing."

Dr Vikki Petersen has a lot of videos on You Tube that provide a good introduction to gluten problems.

Default Don't do it

I agree with Dr Vikki Petersen in the video Ted linked to: Can Gluten Sensitivity be "Cured"? that it isn't worth it even after healing and introducing a little and finding no immediate reaction - "Don't do it." It isn't worth it. I have other family members as well who have conquered the candida problem and their gut is healed, but there is now a lifetime of inflammation to deal with. Some do react immediately to any of the foods they are sensitive to. And for others, as Dr. Petersen noted, it is more insidious.

Here are some other good links:
