The stories became far too frequent to ignore. Emails from folks with allergic or digestive issues to wheat in the United States experienced no symptoms whatsoever when they tried eating pasta on vacation in Italy. Confused parents wondering why wheat consumption sometimes triggered autoimmune reactions in their children but not at other times. In my own home, I’ve long pondered why my husband can eat the wheat I prepare at home, but he experiences negative digestive effects eating even a single roll in a restaurant. There is clearly something going on with wheat that is not well known by the general public. It goes far and beyond organic versus nonorganic, gluten or hybridization because even conventional wheat triggers no symptoms for some who eat wheat in other parts of the world. What indeed is going on with wheat? For quite some time, I secretly harbored the notion that wheat in the United States must, in fact, be genetically modified. You’re going to want to sit down for this one. Dr.

Cat poop parasite may trigger rage disorder in people WEDNESDAY, March 23, 2016 -- Your cat's litter box could be a source of explosive anger -- and not for the obvious reasons. A new study suggests that people prone to explosive bouts of rage might be under the influence of toxoplasmosis, an illness caused by a parasite found in cat feces and undercooked meat. Folks diagnosed with intermittent explosive disorder (IED) are more than twice as likely to carry Toxoplasma gondii, the parasite that causes toxoplasmosis, said lead researcher Dr. Emil Coccaro.

Are Oxalates at the Root Cause of Your Thyroid Condition? Preliminary research has tied oxalate build-up to thyroid disease, and while I’ve never had a problem with oxalates (knock on wood), other thyroid patients have reported oxalate issues. While oxalate build-up has been predominantly tied to kidney stone formation, a study of thyroid autopsies found that 79% of adults were found to have oxalate crystals in their thyroid glands, with prevalence increasing with age. Interestingly, people with Hashimoto’s had a lower incidence of oxalate crystals, especially in the parts of their thyroid gland that were inflamed!

Influenza Attacks: Video Shows How A Virus Infiltrates Our Body Avoiding influenza is everyone’s top priority come flu season.

Gut, Brain, and Autoimmune Disorders The Role of Food I had the experience of a lifetime attending “Gut, Brain and Autoimmune Disorders: The Role of Food“, a conference sponsored by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine in Los Angeles. I felt very lucky to be among the group of 150 or so attendees that consisted of health care professionals from a wide variety of disciplines, including nutritionists, medical doctors, naturopathic doctors, chiropractors, nurse practitioners and pharmacists. I had a chance to meet many of the attendees, and most of them were drawn to functional medicine as a result of having personal or family health crises. They turned to functional medicine to find answers they couldn’t get from traditional medicine. During the two days of the conference, I heard amazing stories of people recovering from Alzheimer’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, ADHD, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, autism, movement disorders, chronic fatigue, and other conditions.
