The main topic under discussion in the FAQs and Links section will be the differences between food allergies and food intolerances, the role these two play in most diseases, and the relationship they have with the residential organisms (e.g. viruses and pleomorphic bacteria) that live in every cell of our body. You will find in-depth discussions concerning the implications of these two conditions in veterinary and human health on the many pages of Dogtorj.com.
The scope of food intolerance is deep and wide and is vital to everyone’s understanding of the origin, pathophysiology, and treatment of the illnesses that afflict us all. This critical health topic came to the forefront last year when I realized that I was wheat and dairy intolerant. The positive health changes that took place in me when I eliminated these items from my diet was nothing short of miraculous.
Before my diagnosis of “celiac disease” (gluten intolerance or cereal grain “allergy”), I suffered from chronic fatigue, irritable bowel, worsening seasonal allergies, headaches, joint pain, insomnia, and even fibromyalgia. Within one month of eliminating wheat from my diet, these ailments were rapidly diminishing. Once I eliminated dairy, all but a minor remnant of my seasonal allergies had totally disappeared. I was truly amazed at the response, as were my family members.
This triggered me into a full scale investigation of how foods could do this to a person like me. The results of an intensive year long search for answers will be included on this site. It will amaze and astound you to read what is known about the negative effects of certain dietary proteins, primarily those found in dairy products, cereal grains (wheat, barley, and rye), soy, and the food additives that are derived from these sources. Monosodium glutamate (MSG), aspartame, and hydrogenated oils will also be discussed.
I will explain the differences between food allergies and food intolerances. It is critical that everyone understand these concepts, especially those that are afflicted with serious illnesses for which there is no known cause or cure.
Please return regularly to review the changes that will be made over the next few weeks. I will be working hard on the FAQs of the site in the very near future. In the meantime, check out some of the Websites in the Links section that deal with gluten (wheat), casein (milk), soy and corn issues as well those pertaining to food additives and air quality. They are real eye openers.
