In Topic: Has Anyone Had Success With Dr. Kharrazian's Methods/testing?

16 January 2013 - 01:10 PM

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.

In Topic: Anyone With Adrenal Fatigue And Gluten Intolerance?

16 January 2013 - 12:10 PM

I have adrenal fatigue, leaky gut, all that fun stuff too.

Interesting, my back pain and adrenal issues have also been the thing that has taken the longest to heal itself. I am making progress though, so I hope I can help!

This supplement, and the diet that goes with it (it's basically a Paleo diet) is what really helped me begin to heal. http://www.ovitaminp...repairvite.html
Expensive stuff, but worth it!

This doctor also has a wonderful guide here on his website for healing your gut: http://chriskresser....5-heal-your-gut

My adrenals have been helped most by sticking to the diet, not drinking coffee, and also lately I've been taking licorice root extract, and that has helped a ton.

Also, are you eating foods high in magnesium and B5 as well? I know that personally I do way better when I eat the real food versions of nutrients, sometimes in addition to the supplements if I'm really deficient. Liver is very high in B vitamins, and I've been a lot healthier since I added some liver into my diet a couple times a week. I've also been making huge batches of bone broth, which is a powerhouse of nutrients and makes you feel great.

I hope that was helpful! All the best to you!

In Topic: Stiff And Achy Is This Just Part Of It?

16 January 2013 - 11:55 AM

I had these issues too. Joint pain, stiff, achy, easily got tendinitis, even had muscle spasms and other issues. All other autoimmune disorders tested negative, and no swelling at the sites of the pain. They told me I had "fibromyalgia" and just tried to give me pain pills. I declined!

What healed me was going on a totally grain free Paleo diet, and cutting out nightshade plants as well. The pain is due to inflammation from leaky gut, which won't heal on a regular gluten-free diet, and also from nutrient deficiencies due to the gut damage.

I also take sub-lingual B12 supplements and fermented cod liver oil (a great source of vitamin D, low levels of this nutrient are linked to pain. This is the best brand: http://www.greenpast.../Home/index.cfm) Make sure you're eating foods with cholesterol in them as well, as it is actually essential to proper vitamin D absorption.

This condition is super common, I actually saw a doctor in Berkeley who knew exactly what it was and how to treat it, he was the one who got me on this diet in the first place.
The diet is really limiting, but totally worth it, I promise. If you need more info feel free to message me. :)

If you have a Kindle or reader, this book is helpful too: http://www.amazon.co...k/dp/B0092FZKK4

I hope you feel better soon!

In Topic: Grass Fed Vs. Grain Fed Meat?

16 January 2013 - 11:35 AM

FYI it's not just the antibiotics and hormones that make grass fed and industrialized beef different. Cows that are fed grain are really sick for their entire lives, because they aren't supposed to eat grain.
http://www.scienceda...10511074623.htm

So you're eating a sick animal. In addition, the food changes the nutrients in their flesh. Normally beef has wonderful omega 3s, which are amazing for you. However, the fat of these grain fed cows is mostly made of omega 6s, which in large amounts cause inflammation in humans (we already have a massive over-abundance of omega 6s in our modern diets)

So grain fed beef may not have gluten in it, but it's unhealthy to eat, it's inhumane, and those feedlots are negatively impacting our environment too.

If you can't find affordable grass fed beef in the grocery stores in your area, this website has a nation wide listing of local farmers where you can buy beef directly (and in bulk, so much cheaper than what you get it for in the store!)

In Topic: Corn Sensitivity

09 January 2013 - 12:21 PM

I'm sensitive to all grains. When I eat corn I have the same reaction to eating wheat gluten.
There are medical practitioners and researchers out there who actually say that people with gluten intolerance need to avoid ALL grain. They claim it's essential for healing.
I know that for me, I had to cut out all grain before I began to get my health back. I'm on a paleo-esque diet. ("esque" because I do eat some goat dairy and a bit of sugar containing foods sometimes) I was put on the diet by my doctor, who'd had incredible success with putting his other patients on the diet as well.
It's very nutritious, makes you feel amazing, and has the science to back up it's healthfulness.

This book is a great starter book for the diet if you want to look into it more: http://www.amazon.co...diet autoimmune
