The Glaring Example

This is a post that I found on a casein intolerance Website years ago. It shows the extreme effect that miniscule amounts of the proteins of the “big 4″ can have on the central nervous system in sensitized individuals. I tell people to simply think “peanut allergy” to get a handle on how little it can take to cause major problems. Strictness in following the diet is the key to success.

My son will be 4 years-old in July.  He was a “colicky” baby from day one.  We had difficulty with breastfeeding so he went to a bottle with regular formula. He was just “sick” all the time with the usual runny/stuffy nose and he rarely slept and was chronically fussy.

The ped diagnosed him as “formula intolerant” and we ended up on Nutramagen.  He did well and thrived on that, but he still had some chronic upper respiratory stuff and still didn’t sleep well.  I just thought it was “normal” for him, assuming some babies are simply more difficult than others.  He never suffered ear infections or rashes that would tip off a ped to something more serious.

At about 9 months when he was taking more solid foods, he seemed to get worse and then the throat infections/tonsillitis really kicked into high gear.  With mobility came new problems that seemed sensory related and then he began the self-injurious/self-mutilative behaviour, banging his head to a bloody pulp, rubbing his skin on the carpet until raw, using sharp object to claw at his arms and legs, etc.

They told me at 14 months that he probably had a form of autism.  He was exceptionally bright so they diagnosed him with Asperger’s Syndrome, Sensory Integration Dysfunction, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Anxiety Disorder and possibly Tourette’s Syndrome.  Ugggh!

I started journaling every breath he took and noted the dairy relation. I eliminated milk (the kind you drink) from his diet and noticed a dramatic change in his behaviour (for the better) but the upper respiratory symptoms still persisted (I didn’t know about “hidden” dairy then).  So with this evidence I had to fight my way to an allergist.  The insurance company was a big pain.

Finally at age 2 we got to an allergist and discovered he was allergic to alpha-lactalbumin (one of the proteins found in whey).  We totally eliminated all dairy from his diet and he’s been “normal” ever since.  It completely changed our lives.

 
 
 
Just Desserts

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.

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.
