Recent study shows unmanaged Hashimoto’s reduces brain function

A recently published case study showed that neurological symptoms can occur in Hashimoto’s patients. SPECT brain scan imaging showed reduced brain activity (hypoperfusion) both in patches and throughout the entire brain. The brain scan images completely changed after subjects were given corticosteroids to suppress the autoimmunity, showing improvements in many areas. However, patchy areas of […]

New study shows gluten and dairy cause brain autoimmunity

A new study shows a significant portion of the US population not only reacts to gluten and dairy but also that this reaction causes the immune system to destroy brain and nervous tissue in a scenario called neurological autoimmunity (as evidenced by positive tissue antibodies). With the explosion of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, autism, childhood development disorders, […]

Brain Disorders in Children

Kevin was a 12-year old boy who had been having difficulty in school for most of his young life. He was also very uncoordinated and not good at sports and spent most of his time playing video games. His father privately told me Kevin could not kick a soccer ball if his life depended on it and he was always fidgeting and making snorting noises. He also suffered from chronic allergies, asthma, and bouts of depression and had been prescribed an asthma inhaler and antihistamines by his doctor. Kevin’s father was worried his son would no do well in academically or socially in high school. Although he didn’t say it, I detected that despite loving his son very much, Kevin’s father was also embarrassed by him… Read More

Brain autoimmunity can be devastating but is often manageable

Kate, 62, began having almost weekly six-hour episodes of dizziness and uncontrollable vomiting when she was 50 years old. She went to various doctors and nobody knew what was causing the episodes. Out of desperation her physicians put her on steroids and antibiotics, but they did not help. She stopped going out or driving for fear of the episodes, becoming a prisoner in her own home. Her entire life and future changed.

After four years of suffering, Kate was finally diagnosed with a condition called Meniere’s disease. It is a deteriorating disease of the inner ear that leads to hearing loss, dizziness, and ringing in the ear. She was forced to take an anti-anxiety medication daily to calm the dizziness… Read More
