The Food Opioids

The following is an Email that I sent to the Friends of DogtorJ concerning these critically important morphine-like derivatives from dairy and wheat. Beta casomorphin 7 (BCM7) from cow’s milk (A1 variety) is ten times more powerful than morphine. Wow! You will be shocked- but not surprised- to see the role they play in our every day lives (e.g. post meal depression, autism, chronic fatigue, the down cycle of ADHD). And yet…most have never heard the terms.

Casomorphins and Gliadomorphins- The Food Opioids

Dear Friends,

I just received the two links below from a friend suffering from this exact issue. These morphine-like substances (casomorphins and gliadomorphins) that we derive from dairy and wheat, respectively, are critical to our understanding of the power of these two foods. They help to explain why 75% of the calories in the standard American diet (SAD) come from these wheat and dairy alone. Food addiction is a very real thing and these opiods play a huge role.

As noted in one of the articles, many autistic children are completely addicted to wheat and dairy, which is consistent with the idea that we become addicted to what will make us ill (cigarettes, drugs, alcohol and food ). There are no healthy addictions and food is no exception. If an individual feels like they cannot give up cheese or bread, then they are very likely to be having a problem with one of these foods. I counsel people like this all of the time and can use that dependency to help them see that those very foods are a major contributor to their IBS, arthritis, depression, or other typical signs associated with food intolerance. And withdrawal from these foods can lead to classic drug-withdrawal symptoms as the articles below point out.

These sedating compounds are also the single biggest contributing factor to post-meal drowsiness. I have proven this in my own life as I used to become extremely sleepy after meals starting in my late 30’s. My wife was beginning to think I was a narcoleptic. I would literally pass out during our favorite TV show. I no longer exhibit this annoying and even dangerous symptom now that I am gluten and dairy-free. In fact, it has been stated that more people die from falling asleep at the wheel while driving than from alcohol-related accidents. What could be doing this? What could keep us from doing the most important thing (staying awake) while driving down the Interstate at 65-80 mph? Now you know. Throw alcohol into the mix and you have a tragic situation just waiting to happen.

We need to become very familiar with these two terms. I have yet to casually meet anyone who has heard them over the seven years following my first encounter with them in the literature…not a doctor nor a lay person. Amazing. And yet they play a vital role in the lives of the multitudes, contributing to food addiction, clinical depression, chronic fatigue, caffeine addiction, autism, highway deaths, and more.

Amaze your friends! Commit these to memory and talk about them at dinner parties. You’ll be the focus of attention.

I do hope this helps. Now, go have some nice, warm milk and get a good night’s sleep. LOL (Talk about knowing something without really KNOWING it. Whoa.)

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.

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!!!
