Allergies

How common are these? Wow. The problem in both human and veterinary medicine is that we have been focusing on the wrong ones all of these years, in my opinion. We spend all of our time worrying about and treating the symptoms of the inhalant allergies, such as those to ragweed, house dust, and cat dander, when I am now 1 million percent convinced that these allergies are secondary to something else. What could they be secondary to?

If you have read The Answer or my paper on gluten intolerance, then you have an idea. If not, then here is a brief explanation. I feel certain now that any individual that has inhalant allergies has serious food “issues” that preceded them. These food issues are what are referred to as food intolerances, which also lead to food allergies. The three foods that do the most harm to the gut are wheat (and other glute-containing grains), cow milk (with it’s main protein, casein), and soy. These three foods all have substances that are used in industry as adhesives. Soy protein, for example, is used as the adhesive to stick your rear-view mirror to your windshield.(That’s some powerful stuff.) These glues stick to your duodenum after they leave your stomach, despite that organ’s valiant attempt to break it down (thus, the heartburn).

Once the glue is stuck to the delicate villi of your intestine, the immune-system is called in to help dislodge it. In the worst cases, as in those with celiac disease, this immune response is very serious leading to severe atrophy of those villi. In the process, antibodies are formed to the glue from the various foods leading to what we call food allergies. This is why the FDA list of childhood allergens stacks up the way it does: cow milk is number one, wheat is number two, and soy is number four (glue, glue and more glue). But, what is number three? Eggs. Eggs represent the first secondary allergen, meaning that we become allergic to them because of the damage done to the gut by the first three. The cow milk and soy formulas do the initial damage to the gut and allow any other proteins that pass through it to be exposed to the blood and immune system in forms that the body doesn’t recognize. Eggs are usually the first protein fed to a baby after being on formula and the immune system reacts to it as a foreign substance once the intestine has been damaged by the formula. Celiacs, for example, are renowned for having multiple food allergies, exhibiting reactions to 5, 10 or up to 30 foods. The reason for this is now clear.

The other thing happening in this damaged gut is the malabsorption of essential nutrients. The duodenum is responsible for absorbing all calcium, iron, iodine, vitamin C, B-complex, and most trace minerals (zinc, boron, manganese, magnesium, etc). These are all vital to good health, of course.

Therefore, once the combination of problems reaches a critical level, the immune system goes into what I call “safe mode”. As stated in The Answer, the immune system is overworked and underpaid. Once in safe mode, it starts to react to other foreign proteins that try to make their way into the body through the respiratory tract. I believe down to my socks that this is the origin of inhalant allergies. Why else would the immune system of one individual react violently to something normal in the air, like oak pollen, while someone else’s doesn’t?

We need to put it out of our mind that allergies are caused by a “malfunctioning immune system” and that “some day we’ll find the gene that causes them and remove it.” That, folks, is INSANE!!! Your body does not make that kind of mistake. Allergies are there for two main purposes: to warn us that something has gone wrong and to try to protect us from further harm. It is that simple. NOW we know that allergies are also warning us that the damage is taking place in the gut and that we have serious food issues, as well.

Therefore, the rationale behind long-term use of antihistamines should be closely re-examined. Is it the right thing to do to keep blocking the histamine that is trying desperately to limit the entrance of more allergens? Should we keep using the nasal spray that simply opens up the congested nasal passages and lets more and more of the offending substances into our lungs? Come on. We’re smarter than that…… aren’t we?

These are little tidbits of knowledge I’ve discovered or insights I’ve gained over the years while doing my in-depth studies.For example, did you know researchers have found that nearly 40% of the genetic information in our DNA is viral information? This explains what we call “genetic diseases” including familial and breed tendencies toward food intolerance (e.g. celiac disease), neurological disorders (e.g. epilepsy), and numerous cancers.

Blogtor J

Welcome to the blog of the new DogtorJ.com. New research into the origin of our medical woes has revealed something startling: As it turns out, we are our own worst enemy. Yes, the Pogo quote of yesteryear found in the title of this article is quite accurate when applied to our medical lives. We love to discuss those things that we call “causes” of diseases even though we often have little clue as to how these things really cause illness. Even medical professionals can have difficulty grasping the true cause-and-effect. But that is understandable once some insight is gained into the true nature of medical training.

News Flash!

In this section, I will be placing links to the latest breaking news in the food world, including updates on the use of elimination diets to control disease, articles on pet food, the truth about GMO foods and more. I will do my best to balance the bad with the good, but try to remember: Much of this will seem like bad news but at least we know about it now…and can change it!

 

With some of these stories, I will include a link to a blog entry so that you can comment on the article. This idea came to me after reading the first entry, which is a news flash that made my blood boil.

Gluten Intolerance and Your Pet
 

This paper is an article I wrote for the newsletter of www.celiac.com when asked about the prevalence of celiac disease (gluten intolerance) in the dog and cat. This condition has been definitively diagnosed in the Irish Setter but not many other breeds of dogs. I will not be at all surprised when we find that it does exist in numerous other breeds… and even the lovable mutt…but as this article explains, that may very well be a moot point. Gluten is only the beginning.

The Answer
 

This 40-plus page paper is my first major paper, written in 2001 and hurriedly placed on this site on that fateful and tragic day of 9-11. It represents the culmination of nearly two years of research on the subject of food-related disorders and contains an amazing amount of facts that have been hidden from public view concerning this subject. It covers how the “big 4” trouble foods- gluten, dairy, soy and corn- came into being, catapulted into common usage, and became directly involved in most of our serious medical conditions, including epilepsy, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia, ADHD, pain syndromes, depression, and allergies. Severe immune-mediated diseases such as diabetes, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis are also covered.

 

Yes, it is quite long, but it appeared on my computer screen and was placed onto the Web just as it came out of my head. And it is wordy in places. But, as I tell my clients, “There is no law that you have to read it all in one sitting. Think of it as a free, short book rather than a long research paper. It’s all how you look at it, right?”

 

The one thing I can say is that this information WILL change your life…guaranteed!!!
