How green veggies upset Deb’s digestion

How Deb ditched her greens for a happier gut Back in 2013 I worked with a young lady in Chicago, IL. At the time, Deb was an active, sporty person with a great career. The trouble was that she was experiencing quite a few symptoms that she felt were holding her back. One of these symptoms was diarrhea, and it’s this symptom I want to focus on in this short case study because the solution was quite counterintuitive. Are you sure all health foods are healthy? Plastered all over the Internet are assertions that certain foods are “good” and...

Are you confused about food allergy and sensitivity?...

Are you confused about what to eat and what to avoid? Experts disagree on what the healthiest diet is, and that’s because there isn’t a single diet that works perfectly for everyone. You and I most likely need to eat a different set of foods to feel and perform at our best. Put another way, what works quite well for me could make you feel awful. Why is this? One reason for this is that we are all different genetically, so it makes sense that the same diet will affect us all in different ways. Another reason for this...

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. Yet the solution was surprisingly simple – her symptoms were being triggered by one simple and usually innocuous food. I worked with Joyce all the way back in 2008. 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? And can they lead to unexplained weight gain and immunity? Yes, they can. I am currently working with a family of four in France. They are Brits and Irish by trade – a fine mixture of northern European and Celtic stock. However, none of them do very well when they eat certain foods, and this blog post explains how they came to understand how specific foods were making them feel unwell. Their...

How to treat H pylori with food and natural supplements...

If you want to know how to treat H pylori with food, you’ve come to the right place. Contrary to what many doctors will tell you, you CAN treat H pylori with food and supplements. However it’s not as simple as you might think, for several reasons. You may need to add some natural supplements to anti-H pylori foods in order get the result you’re looking for because foods alone may not be enough. How to treat H pylori with food alone Over the years, I have read thousands of studies on H pylori. Studies investigating the effect of...

Assessing food sensitivity with the Coca Pulse Test...

What is the Coca Pulse Test? Although not 100% accurate, the Coca Pulse test can help identify foods that may be stressing your body without having to spend money on lab tests. In 1956, Dr. Arthur Coca, a medical doctor, wrote an entire book about this test, which is publicly available. I still feel it’s a good idea to run lab testing because, as I’ve said in other posts, a good food sensitivity test provides more information about your health than simply which foods you might be reacting to. It gives clues about whether you have a leaky gut...
