hello everybody.

my husband is suffering from celiac disease for the past one year. he cannot digest any food made from wheat and its products like refined flour (maida) bajra etc. i have read on the internet that there is no cure to this disease. one has to just stop eating wheat products in order to cure it.
we recently went to a homeopathic doctor and he said that it is chronic dysentry and that within four months if he is regular with the medicine he will get alright. but i really doubt whether it is chronic dysentry or celiac disease.

also i would like to know that we stay in india where gluten free products are hardly available. can anybody give us information as to where can i buy gluten free products in India especially Mumbai and Gujarat

also i would like to know whether this disease is curable or not. which foods can he eat freely. which foods will help me get cured easily?

please help me i am really worried.
thank u
