Re: Sugar Allergy

Postby jmichae3 » Sat Dec 29, 2007 7:07 am

I guess I have a food intolerance to cane sugar. If I eat too many cookies or chocolates or drink way too much pop (32ozer doesn't give me a problem by itself one day in a week), I get a nosebleed and a sometimes a rush. if I space things too close together, I have a problem. I was told by my mother that when a woman has had a baby, they check food allergies/whatever by taking the person off of the food for 2 weeks. so I guess once I have a problem with a nosebleed I should lay off things for at least 2 weeks for stuff to get out of my system. :(

most kinds of dark chocolate will cause me to immediately to sneeze at least once. if I eat too much milk chocolate, I have the same reaction. I guess the dark chocolate thing is bordering on an allergy.

I ate too much chocolate and candy as a kid (but not dark chocolate :?: ). I figure now it has caught up to me.

as for an earlier comment about potatoes and wheat, I am told that it is not so much that they contain sugar, but that the body makes sugar out of them, and this is why diabetics try to stay away from them. but that's not my problem. I can eat wheat & potatoes & oranges.

Blood sample is taken and tests for 88 different foods. Otherwise it is all guess work and results are always suspect with elimination diets. Results were astounding! AFter incorporating the diet changes, I began to get well and feel much better.
Turns out I was allergic to cane sugar, and of all things, yeast, along with a few other surprises. SO much for my $200 new bread machine.
If you are looking for some serious answers, try looking up dr David Dahlman on the Internet. If you have IBS or Crohn's, he is a must. If only the food allergies are bothering you, then this is the best way I know or have ever heard of to nail down the culprits. It turns out to be the most cost effective as well.
I urge you to download and read carefully his free report. It really opened my eyes. I have followed his advice and am getting my life back.
Good luck.


http://www.drdahlman.com/biography.shtml

'Dr' David Dahlman is no more qualified than my pet dog...

He is NOT a doctor...

He is NOT a scientist...

I don't even think he has a real science degree...

His 'qualifications'... tsk...

Bachelor of Science in Nutrition, Life University, Marietta, Georgia, December 1996
Doctor of Chiropractic, Life University, Marietta, Georgia, December 1996

It may have escaped your attention - it takes three and a half years to obtain a doctorate...

NO ONE CAN GRADUATE FROM UNIVERSITY WITH A BSc AND A PhD IN THE SAME MONTH!...

That is why I suspect this 'Life University' isn't a real university and that his BSc is fake... 'Life University' doesn't even sound like a real university...

It goes that says on it's profile that he Attended University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, Ohio... What on earth does that mean - did he dropo out of a real university after one week?...

Then it goes...

Granted Chiropractic Licensure, State of Ohio, License # 2437, February 26, 1997

Three months later?... with a fake degrees?... he was licenced chiropracter...?

Btw, this sounds just like 'Dr' Gillian McKeith...

For those of you that are unfortunate enough not to be English - you probably never heard of her...

But the annoying fake 'doctor' was a massive hit with the moronic public and she had her own lame TV series...

Anywayz, it turns out that her PhD was ordered online from a fake american university (just as this 'Dr' David Dahlman seems to be)...

This was all uncovered by the work of a genius (Ben Goldacre) who managed to order the same qualification for his dead cat...

It's a good read if you have time...

http://www.badscience.net/?p=131

^^

"CV. For example, she is proud to announce under “Professional Associations” that she is a certified member of the American Association of Nutritional Consultants (AANC), which certainly sounds impressive. I bet you get a little certificate and everything.

· In fact, I know you get a certificate, because I’m holding it in my hand right now. It’s in the name of my cat, Henrietta. I got it in return for $60, and it’s a particular honour since dear, sweet, little Hettie died about a year ago. So, coming in a bit cheaper than Gillian’s non-accredited correspondence course PhD and Masters degrees (although she will have got a discount from “Clayton College of Natural Health” if she ordered them both at once), it looks as if all you need to be a certified member of the AANC is a name, an address, and a spare $60. You don’t need to be human. You don’t even need to be alive. No exam. No check-up on your qualifications. And no assessment of your practice. I guess that could be embarrassing for some of their certified professional members. Presumably, the diploma is there to certify that you have $60."

"· But back to the money: if anybody wants nutritional advice from the decomposing corpse of my ex-cat, I shall be setting up a small shrine at the bottom of the garden, where you can leave chewed mice, ready cash, and offers of a primetime TV series on Channel 4."

Perhaps I might help you out a bit. You are incorrect in so many ways....and your sense of time is outlandishly juvenile. I am a doctor, I am not a scientist. I graduated from Life University in 1996 after a 4 year program where I received a chiropractic degree and also a BS in nutrition. Both were bestowed upon me in December of 1996. That's right, I studied for both degrees at the same time. It required 30 hours each of the last 8 quarters of school to do that. The date "1996" in my biography denotes the year of graduation, not the "year" I spent in school. I began there in January of 1993. Do the math...that's 4 years.

Life University is an accredited chiropractic school, providing the educational requirements of the National Board of Chiropractic and also the various State Boards.

In the State of Ohio, Chiropractors, MD's and Osteopaths are all considered primary care physicians according to the Ohio State Revised Code. We all have equal footing, though it does not require you to have any respect for me.

I was granted license # 2437 on February 26th, 1997 after successfully passing the State Board Exam.

I "attended" the University of Cincinnati for 5 years, playing football there and then dropped out without a degree to pursue business interests.

Nothing fake going on here but your analysis. Please see the Ohio State Board of Chiropractic and the Ohio Attorney General's office as well and the BBB in Cincinnati for more followup on my credentials and reputation.

In the future, your time may be better spent analyzing and discussing where you see failures in my therapies instead of attacking me personally. But, we both know you can't do that.

Read MichealXY...

"Life University College of Chiropractic
Placed on Probation (June 2001), Then
Loses CCE Accreditation (June 2002)"

http://www.chirobase.org/03Edu/probation.html

"From 1992 to 1996, when I attended Life College in Marietta, Georgia, all chiropractic students were required to attend a one-hour class called "Chiropractic Philosophy." Officially, it was a pass-or-fail class with grades based solely on attendance. Unofficially, it was called "assembly" and loathed by many students who resented forced attendance at a program lasting over an hour. Fifteen minutes before the assigned time, long lines of students and faculty could be seen slowly moving toward the gymnasium."

http://www.chirobase.org/03Edu/moneyhum.html

"On June 7, 2002, the Commission on Accreditation of the Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE), which is the national organization that accredits chiropractic schools, revoked the accreditation status of Life University of Marietta, Georgia. Life advocates a "straight" chiropractic approach which holds that spinal malfunction ("subluxations") is the underlying cause of ill health and that spinal adjustments enable the body to heal itself."

http://www.chirobase.org/03Edu/revocation.html

"Five men who are students or former students of Life University have filed suit charging that the university and its president, Sid E. Williams, D.C., have damaged them by failing to maintain the accreditation necessary for its graduates to be eligible for licensure"

http://www.chirobase.org/08Legal/lifesuit.html


And to this 'Dr' chiropracter... Firstly, you should not even be allowed to be able to call yourself a doctor and secondly you university lost accreditation in 2002 - and yet you practice as a chiropracter... That says a lot regulation about chiropracters...


Also Micheal XY... There is a LOT of dodgy universities about... A private that only specialises in alternative therapy is bound to be dodgy...

In the UK we have the following 'medical schools' that the General Medical Counsil will not licence you to practice as a doctor... So effectively you pay for a degree that is worthless... You aren't allowed to ever practice in the UK (or in most other countries) with such as degree...

European College of Medicine, London (ECM)
Grace University School of Medicine, London
London College of Medicine
London School of Medicine
London Medical School
School of Health and Neural Sciences, Nottingham
American International School of Medicine, UK satellite campus
St. Christopher's College of Medicine, Luton
Kigezi International School of Medicine, Cambridge
Medical College London, Montserrat

If this is the case with medicine... You can imagine how poorly redulated the world of 'alternative' medicine is like...

Your quite the detective Revenge.
Ok, here is the thing. I really had no bias in this issue one way or the other, so as for myself I could care less either way, but since you chose to single me out; I decided to do a little detctive work as well. You mention that the CCE has revoked the accreditation of Life University.
According to the CCE web site, the Life University is listed as an accredited Doctor of Chiropractic Degree Programs.
You can verify this on their link at http://www.cce-usa.org/adcp.php
And although I am sure that quackwatch (Chirobase.org) is a reliable source, I would not consider the site as being the end all know all experts.
Again, let me say I could care less about this Dr. person, I simply verifid that he held a valid license with the Ohio state board.

Yawn. Well now, isn't "Revenged's" name appropriate? Here sir, are the indisputable facts:

I am licensed by the State of Ohio as a Chiropractic Physician. MichaelXY already did the research.
I am licensed by that law to diagnose any and all human conditions and treat them using chiropractic technique and other natural methods including dietary changes, nutrition and supplements. There are 50,000 licensed chiropractors in the US and many more in the UK. Also note, there is no "e" in chiropractor.
I use no chiropractic technique in my practice, it's all nutrition and supplements.
I have one of the largest privately owned alternative health care websites in the world with 100k visitors each month. The amount of revenue associated with that far exceeds that earned by any of the world's finest surgeons.
The internet is a wonderful source for health information as well as one of the worst sources. Buyer beware.
I graduated from Life University fully 6 years before they had their accreditation problems. I could not care less that they had those problems. I was long gone.
Life University is fully accredited now.
Quackwatch is run by a "hit man" for the medical establishment, "Dr." Stephen Barrett. He unfortunately is no longer licensed, revocation of his psychiatric license was in the 90's. He said he simply allowed it to lapse. He has since run a website that attacks everything not medical. He has been embarrassed by me in radio debates and by a California Appeals court after he sued a homeopathic supplement company for "false and misleading" advertising. Hey Revenged...isn't homeopathy popular in the UK? Doesn't the Royal family participate?
The judge in the case declared Barrett to not be a qualified expert in any shape or form to be a reliable witness in this case and found for the defendant in very strong language. You can read about the case with links to the actual judge's comments and the documents of the case here:

California Appeals Court BLUDGEONS Quackbusters
The quackbusters had accused King Bio of false advertising. At issue was the credibility of the NCAHF's witnesses, Stephen Barrett, and Wallace Sampson MD. ...
http://www.quackpotwatch.org/opinionpieces/ california_appeals_court_bludgeo.htm

Or, simply Google "King Bio Barrett" for more than you can read about this huckster.

So, Revenged...you can see you are very late to the party. Attackers of me and hucksters like Barrett have already been dealt with. Nice try on your part, but my promotion of alternative health care marches forward in spite of you and the 1000's of people I help each year continues to grow.

I'm sure you would get a kick out of my new book: Why Doesn't My Doctor Know This? Conquering Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Crohn's Disease and Colitis. The name is the #1 question I heard in my office after I explained to my patients in simple terms what was wrong with them, what was the cause and the all natural treatment I suggested for them. Your beloved MD's prefer to suppress/mask/manage symptoms using drugs with side effects, patients are tired of that approach and they are making a career for me. I am grateful.

And, you are doing what many before you have tried to do and failed. You prefer to attempt to dismiss me in ways other than addressing the facts of my protocols and debating the merits. Debate my treatments instead of attacking me. You can't, because you can't understand them and...you're just a mean guy. Shame on you.

So, I know you won't let this go, you will post something else that tries to show what an unqualified failure I am. Problem is, wishing doesn't make it so and I continue to help more people than I ever imagined I could.

yeah, that may be... but you have to consider what this licencing actually is... tbh i don't know what happens in the states (i don't really want to go into it) but i do know that we don't have any real licencing of alternative therapy here... it seems pretty much anyone can do it...

recently in the news there is supposed to be a regulatory board being set up in the UK... however, this scheme is supposed to be 'voluntary'... you have to wonder what good a voluntary scheme is supposed to do and you have to wonder why no one has bothered to set up any sort of law to protect patients that get harmed by alternative therapists...

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_a ... 134337.ece

perhaps chirobase isn't the most reliable source... however, what I said about Ben Goldacre is definitely accurate... He a medical doctor who works as a journalist in one of the UK best selling broadsheet newspapers (the guardian)... he definitely managed to managed to get his dead cat to become a certified member of the American Association of Nutritional Consultants (AANC) for 60 dollars {the same qualification 'dr' gillian mckeith had)...

and this licensing is quite an important issue... i'll tell you about an interesting case... whilst on a clinical placement at a GP surgery i saw someone with had a total left foot drop... initially he presented with left sided sciatica (sciatica is compression of the sciatic nerve - it innervates the muscles in the lower leg)... he had the standard tests - initial lumbar MRI showed slight compression of the lumbar spine... the standard treatment was given (strong pain killers) and he was being monitored... he got fed up with the doctors as they just gave him pain killers and sent him home so he decided to go to a chiropracter...the manipulation of the spine had caused compression of the sciatic nerve and he could no longer dorsiflex his left foot two days later (so he couldn't move his foot upwards - all his dorsiflexor muscles had atrophied)... the damage was irreversible... since the nerve damage he had two failed surgeries and they sent him to have electrical stimulation of the muscle (i'm not really sure what this was it happened at a specialist neurological hospital - but it didn't work)... he had to wear a foot brace but he still couldn't really walk properly... the gait was very unsteady even with the foot brace... but without the brace he would trip over his left foot since it literally dropped completely - and he would trip over his left leg every time he walked... the worst part was that he couldn't sue... he didn't have a legal leg to stand on (sorry for the pun)... it seems that if you get disabled by an alternative therapist in the UK then you just have to live with it... there seems to be no regulation here... we don't have the equvalent of the GMC (general medical counsil) for this 'alternative' therapists... which is very worrying...

i just told you that story to show my cynicism of alternative therapies is not totally unfounded...

dear 'dr' chiropracter...

1) your link doesn't even work... i have no idea what you are talking about... i clicked on it but i got a 'forbidden you cannot access the website'

2) i'm am english (not american)... we spell colour and neighbour like that and we can spell chiropracter with an 'e'...
http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&sa ... cter&meta=

3) thirdly, i don't shamelessly plug myself on websites...
i did find it quite odd that someone joins here just to make one post advertising mr wonder chiropracter... and the next post after we have this mr wonder chiropracter defending myself... my cynical side tells me that you posed and made a fake account to advertise yourself online... your shameless plug of your book (of which i genuinely have no interest whatsoever) only makes me think that you would pose as someone else to advertise yourself...

4) fourthly, your book in nonsense... IBS isn meaningless... it isn't even a real medical condition, it is just a label given to a bowel problem of known cause... it's used like TATT (tired all the time)... and your arrogance on the subject is astounding... you can't claim to know better about the subject than specialist gastroenterologist...

5) homeopathy i don't really care about and it's only the prince of wales that likes alternative therapy (not the whole royal family like you were saying)... as for prince charles - i dislike even more than you - so i don't care what the he thinks... and the main difference between hoemopathy is giving sugar tablets never harmed anyone (whereas chiropracters do)...

6) i think homeopathy medicine is a waste of money... unlike in the states where the FDA licence anti-cancer drugs straight away... our clinical body - the national institue of clinical excellence - is not licencing most of the latests anti cancer drugs despite clinical evidence that they prolong life of patients for months because they apparently are too expensive... but we waste millions of pounds on areas in the NHS - it is badly organised... and funding homeopathy is just one of many areas that's waste in my opinion...

7) Don't say i don't understand what i'm talking about just because you don't like what i'm saying... You don't even know me...
