We aim to show you that you don’t need to live in a state of pain and dysfunction. We want people to return to see us, not because we tell you so, but because you can see and feel the changes taking place and you recognise the benefits of our care.
After hundreds of client interactions, I observed patterns… patterns in their symptoms and certain food compounds, patterns in underlying biochemistry, laboratory test markers, and dietary needs, and patterns in what diets worked best and additional nutritional needs that required support.
👉 I’d discover one client did very well on a gluten-free and dairy-free diet; however, while another found small or moderate benefit from the diet.
👉 Yet, that second client had tremendous gains after adding a low salicylate diet.
👉 Someone else would tell me that the Specific Carbohydrate Diet or GAPS Diet did wonders for their child, while the next seemed to get worse on the same diet.
Because I had clients with the same condition coming to me using different diet approaches… and getting different results. I was able to see what was working for whom and why, and why certain approaches didn’t for an individual.
Salicylates are naturally-occurring food chemicals in fruits, vegetables, and other plant foods like herbs, spices, nuts, etc.). In the 1950’s and 60’s, Dr. Ben Feingold observed that artificial additives and high salicylate foods caused hyperactivity and other symptoms in some children.
Biochemically, salicylates are a type of “phenolic acid” or “phenol.” Phenols need to be broken down in the body, i.e. “detoxified,” which occurs through a process called sulfation.
