About

Bio

I am a Family Physician with over 40 years of clinical experience in multiple settings. I have seen just about everything in my long career so my experience is very useful when it comes to diagnosis and managing patients. I have also introduced a new disease model to the medical profession based on the idea that highly processed food is neurotoxic. Over time time this can trigger a form of food-induced brain dysfunction called Carbohydrate Associated Reversible Brain syndrome or CARB syndrome. The symptoms of CARB syndrome overlap with many traditional disorders, creating a great deal of diagnostic and therapeutic confusion. I blog about CARB syndrome at: http://carbsyndrome.com/

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

It is not unusual to have mood swings prior prior to and during your period. These mood swings can vary in intensity. I believe the safest way to treat these symptoms is to take L-theanine 100 mg twice daily and 5-htp 150 mg at bedtime during the time that you have these mood swings. These supplements are inexpensive, safe, and readily available. OBC can help but entails more risk.

This type of temporary thumb spasm can be due to stress or fatigue. When it quickly resolves, it is unlikely due to a serious problem. If the spasms worsen, seek an evaluation by your physician. You likely will need laboratory tests to rule out a metabolic problem and a neurological examination. Magnesium deficiency can cause muscle cramps and it's a very safe and inexpensive to try.

This could be the result of focal damage to one of the superficial nerves near the umbilicus. This is the area where instruments are inserted to do the laparoscopic hysterectomy. The numbness will usually slowly improve over time. If not, check back with the physician who did the procedure.
