Opinions Please: What Do You Think Of This Doctor?

Recommended Posts

The owner of a local health food store recently told me about this doctor who is in my area. She is a naturopath who had her training mainly in France. She is not licensed as an ND in the US.

I have been looking at her website and I am intrigued. She has a lot of information on her website, including this article on Celiac/gluten intolerance.

Can you guys please review what she is saying and tell me: do you think she'd be a good person to go and see? I am looking for someone to help me manage my apparent gluten intolerance, my Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (I'll still see an MD for thyroid meds, though), and other things. Should I be concerned that she is not licensed in the US or in California?

Except for the fact that her description of current celiac testing is outdated, the rest of her information seems on the up-and-up. She has very pertinent knowledge of the basis of gluten sensitivity and how to alleviate the condition. I would definitely consult with this particular doctor if she practiced close enough to my locale. I live in California but not close enough to consult with her. I think you might be able to trust this doctor.

BTW, I learned a thing or two from her site. I didn't know that teff might contain gluten--this explains why I and my fellow attendees at a celiac conference in Seattle a few years back broke out in Dermatitis Herpetiformis after teff wraps were served to us at lunchtime. However, I just did some quick research, and, apparently, I'm hearing that teff is considered gluten free. Hmmmmm....perhaps it's actually a gray area? All I know is that I don't intend to eat teff ever again.
