Has Anyone Had Success With Dr. Kharrazian's Methods/testing?
0

10 posts in this topic

I went to a lecture yesterday about the benefits of eating gluten-free (in relation to food intolerances) and also the impact that the thyroid has on the system as a whole. A lot of doctors use Dr. Kharrazian's teachings and set up patients with extensive thyroid tests and other lab work. I signed up with a Chiropractor to do this but I'm wondering if anybody here has already been through this and how it went? The Dr. also told me to read the first 3 chapters of "Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms When My Lab Results Are Normal?"

Is this the best board to be asking about this?

Thanks!

I have never heard of this one. I belong to several thyroid sites as well as celiac sites so this is a new one for me..

Do you have a link to read about this Dr Kharrazian? You can send me a private message if you want...

I'd really like to hear others' opinion on Dr. K, too, and on his book. I can't seem to find infos for his MD degree, though...

He isn't a doctor. He is a quackerpracter.... sorry, chiropractor. IMO they should stick with what they went to school for, which does not usually involve practicing medicine. I'm not against alternative approaches. Heck, I'm all for it. But this fad of turning to quackerpracters for medical care is dangerous.

I agree 1000%! Where I live it seems everyone goes to the chiropractor. And they go over and over again. Even for bone problems, I think they do more harm than good. When you get "adjusted" frequently, all you are doing is stretching the ligaments so they no longer keep things in place.

And there is one quack here who insists he can "cure" celiac disease by "adjusting" you!

I can't find it on the internet, but several years ago there was an article in the national news about studies that showed chiropractic did NOT work. In that article they interviewed several chiros and they all agreed the study was not flawed and it proved that chiro did no good whatsoever, but they all insisted they would continue to practice anyway.

I think they should all be shut down!

I believe that if you are selective in how you use chiropractors, they fill a useful niche. I would never consult one for celiac disease, but it was only a chiropractor who was able to diagnose my sacroilac problem and do something about it. Orthopedic doctors had been useless. And I don't let them 'bone crunch' me; I will only let them use an activator punch. :)

There is a local guy here in Utah who has been shut down, is being sued, blah blah blah. He was claiming he could cure diabetes through his some program or other that he learned from some quack over in CO. Scammed a bunch of old people out of money. :angry:

I don't necessarily think it is complete quackery. I did see one briefly who helped me immensely with recovery after an auto accident that really messed up my neck something fierce. My oldest daughter was very young at the time, just a few months and I couldn't be on any medication that would mess me up and risk my ability to care for her but I had to have pain relief. I just think they need to learn to say okay, I helped you as much as I can and now I will let you go. Or, I can't help you. The main problem with them is that I think they have swelled egos and consider themselves doctors when they simply are no such thing.

YES! He is fantastic.

My friend Sara gave me his book, and I have to say that was the huge turning point in my health. Prior to that I'd been gluten free but still really sick. I'd seen multiple doctors, who all just wanted to give me drugs for my pain. He's not a quack, he is an incredibly intelligent medical practitioner who knows what works.

Over the last 10 years I went to so many Western doctors who NEVER understood my condition, and never helped me feel better. I found a Chiropractor though the physician look-up on his website, and he saved my health. My chiro (his name is Patrick Tribble in Berkeley, CA) is the only health practitioner who has ever understood my condition, and helped me feel 10 times better (in addition to celiac, I have degenerative disc disease, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, hyperthyroidism, etc..) He was highly educated in nutrition and was also getting his degree in neurology at the time. So chiros don't just crack people's backs and such.

I also sent several friends to this guy, and we all improved dramatically.

I highly suggest going to see him personally or someone listed on his website.

Thanks for confirming I hadn't turned into a poor reader. I'm the same way, too: I have experienced (and so have others I know) real benefits/healing from non-chemical treatments - and by real I mean measured and recognized by conventional medicine specialists. But in my case those who prescribed these therapies were all in the "regular" medical profession (MDs), who still maintain that sometimes you do need antibiotics, hormone replacement, et cetera. So I guess that my concern is also that too many quacks end up detracting from the possible and mensurable benefits from "alternative" practices.

Here are Dr. Kharrazian's credentials: (No there isn't an MD in there... however, that does not mean that he is not a highly educated expert in nutrition, brain function, and health. He is way more learned in nutrition and neurology than any regular doctor I've ever been to.)

"Dr. Kharrazian earned his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of the State of New York with honors and his Doctor of Chiropractic degree graduating with honors from Southern California University of Health Sciences, where he was distinguished with the Mindlin Honors at Entrance Award, the Dean’s List, and the Delta Sigma Award for Academic Excellence. He has earned a Master of Science degree in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport, a Master of Neurological Sciences from the Carrick Institute of Graduate Studies, and a Doctor of Health Science from Nova Southeastern University. He is currently completing his Ph.D. in health sciences with doctoral research in immunology at Nova Southeastern University.

Dr. Kharrazian has completed many postgraduate specialty programs and has been board certified in numerous specialties that include Diplomate of the Board of Nutrition Specialists, Diplomate of the American Board of Clinical Nutrition, Diplomate of the Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition, Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Neurology, and Diplomate of the International Board of Applied Kinesiology.

His contributions and devotions to clinical practice and educations have earned him several fellowships including Fellow of the American Board of Vestibular Rehabilitation, Fellow of the American Academy of Chiropractic Physicians, Fellow of the International Academy of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation, and Fellow of the American College of Functional Neurology."

And just a gentle reminder that the original poster was asking for information specifically on this doctor and his methods. She wasn't asking for feedback about your personal opinion on Chiropractors or alternative healing practitioners.

      If you cant be sure then don't eat it!  
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
