How one simple food transformed Joyce’s digestion...

How food sensitivity can ruin quality of life… Joyce’s case is one of the strangest I have seen over the last decade of clinical work.

She contacted me because she was struggling with a lot of digestive trouble. On most days, she would have a very nasty burning sensation in her abdomen, and then pass uncomfortable loose stools. Joyce’s symptoms were running her life – she thought about her digestive...

How food sensitivity testing transformed an entire family’s health...

How home food sensitivity testing can transform health Can simple foods like eggs really cause night sweats? Can they trigger digestive symptoms, drain energy and alter mood?

What foods aggravate H pylori and cause similar symptoms?...

“What foods aggravate H pylori?” Hmmmm, this is a question I’m asked a lot, and with good reason. When you have H pylori, you develop something called gastritis, which simply means ‘stomach inflammation’.

These symptoms include heartburn, stomach pain, acid reflux, bloating, a sore throat, a lump in your throat, belching, burping, etc. Inflammation that goes untreated can lead to stomach and duodenal ulcers,...

Antacids, acid blocking drugs and nutrient deficiencies Millions of people take over the counter antacids, or more potent prescription acid blocking medications such as proton pump inhibitors to deal with acid reflux and gastro-esophageal reflux disease. In the short-term, these meds can do a great job of reducing unwanted and uncomfortable symptoms, but in the long run they may deplete nutrients and trigger Candida, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and C. difficile infections. The net result can be bloating, gas, loose stools, diarrhea, fatigue, depression, allergies and other unpleasant symptoms. If you are taking antacids, H2 blockers or PPIs on...
