As a psychologist and functional health practitioner, my specialty in gluten and food intolerances, including certifications in functional intestinal problems such as excessive gas, bloating, gut flora imbalances, leaky gut, GERD, and inflammation seemed a natural fit for my practice. In naturopathic medicine there is a saying that “all disease starts in the gut”. From what I have seen, testing hundreds of clients for gluten sensitivity and intolerance and many other food intolerances, especially the foods that are very similar on the molecular level to gluten, when a person cleans up their diet and eats according to their unique physiology and genetics, miracles can occur.
I especially see this in relationship to psychological disorders and symptoms: depression, anxiety, insomnia, headaches and migraines, attention deficient disorders, and bi-polar disorders. In functional psychology, there is a saying: “the gut is your second brain”. This talks to your first brain, upstairs. This is key reason why so many psych meds caused gastrointestinal side effects.
I have been helping people regain their functional health and well-being, body, mind and spirit since 1983. Now, that much more comprehensive information over the years has been discovered regarding the neurotoxic effects of gluten and how many other types of foods can cause chronic inflammation throughout the body, I think of myself now, saving lives in my practice one person at a time, through education, and comprehensive, non-toxic, non-drug approaches of nutrition, life-style management, and body-mind integration techniques.
