After days of not getting my password accepted I finally just registered again!
The article you posted is very interesting to me. Dr. Fratkin talks about the load on the liver and lymphatic system and the stress to the immune and endocrine system and his explanation of the process makes sense to me.
He has a very holistic approach to treatment. His dietary approach reminds me of the diet avocated at this website. I appreciated him saying:
"Diet is perhaps the hardest path for patients to follow, but this is what determines who gets better and who doesn't."
He avocates stool testing and so many of us endorse Dr. Fine's stool testing method. He avocates traditional allergy testing. He treats yeast overgrowth but understands the underlying conditions that cause it. I just didn't see him address gluten intolerance testing directly but he uses food trials and maybe that is how he diagnoses gluten intolerance? If so I hope he stresses enough how complete compliance is essential.
I so like holistic approaches. They seem more openminded and treat the whole person.
