A large body of medical studies now point to hidden food allergies as a common cause of gastrointestinal problems including inflammatory bowel conditions like colitis and irritable bowel syndrome. In his book Food Allergy and Nutrition Revolution, Dr. James Braley M.D., documents over 100 symptoms and 150 diseases linked to hidden food allergies. Over the past 25 years I have tested thousands of patients’ blood samples for hidden food allergies. I have observed remarkable recoveries from irritable bowel in just a few short weeks simply by eliminating the offending foods and restoring the integrity of the individual’s intestinal tract. Surprisingly, I have observed migraine headaches, asthma, depression, anxiety, weight problems and many other conditions are often linked to delayed food allergies.  

Imagine you no longer have to worry about an urgent trip to the nearest bathroom when you are traveling or at an important meeting? Imagine bloating, gas, cramps and the embarrassment of it all is gone forever. Sound too good to be true? Let me introduce you to someone who also thought the idea was too good to be true. Judy, a 61-year-old, suffered with irritable bowel syndrome for more than 10 years. She had severe diarrhea, complicated by 10 to 15 bowel movements per day. Yet in less than 30 days she was having normal bowel movements without any of the symptoms associated with irritable bowel. Zero cramping, zero gas, zero diarrhea after suffering with these symptoms for more than 10 years. How is this possible? I identified the foods that caused her stomach to explode with symptoms by performing a simple blood test. Once we eliminated the foods irritating her gut, Judy said goodbye to irritable bowel once and for all. Plus, she experienced some additional pleasant side effects. Over the next 9 months Judy lost over 60 lbs. of unwanted fat and the joint pains she suffered with for years. 

Take Home Message: Conventional medicine claims there is no cure for irritable bowel syndrome. Hundreds of my patients with this embarrassing and discomforting condition have discovered the cure for irritable bowel were common and often healthy foods on their plate. 

Lastly, I have an announcement to make. Starting August 24, 2019 I will be hosting The Other Side of Medicine weekly podcast on Facebook. Along with the podcast, at the end of August, I will launch my first episode of the hilarious “Adventures of Dr. Ivan Awful itch” cartoon series.
