    Hi Isabelle, I am doing much better since I first wrote. My rash has gone way down. Very few flareups. Most of my food sensitivities have disappeared. I am stil sensitive to gluten but I can tolerate einkorn, though I rarely use flour. I prefer to use intact grains.

    Do you know of any research related to meal spacing--intervals between meals? Or how eating on a regular schedule benefits our health?

Going oil free and eating whole food plant based, following the Starch Smart way, has helped so much! I had developed allergies to citrus, spinach, tomatoes, nutritional yeast flakes, and a few other foods. But all these have disappaeared! My sensitivity to gluten is still there but it has decreased. I trust that as I lose weight and keep eating this way, I'll have total healing! More

My interest was to figure out the percentage of calories from fat in both of those seeds. Well, it ends up that Chia seeds are 53% of their calories from fat and Flax seeds are 71% of their calories from fat. Of course these are considered the most 'healthy' fats.   More ...

You may have a complicated case, but are welcome to consider that option here at this URL.
      Phone consults are conducted at 7 PM Central time on week-nights, and are called Food Coaching to distinguish them from the practice of medicine across state lines. Thus Food coaching is advice from me, a medical doctor, but are not actually me becoming your physician across state lines, as they do not involve the prescribing of medications or tests, although we certainly do discuss those (if appropriate) that you may ask your MD in your state to order for you.

My biggest question is if you think I could heal leaky gut food intolerances if I maintain some beans in my diet daily? My other question is, do you think large amounts of flax seed or chia seed (like 1/2 c/day are harmful? Will the phytates bind up nutrients?  More ...

    A church member who is recovering from colorectal cancer said he plans on using black pepper in his meals. He says it helps prevent cancer. Have you heard about this connection?
