What's your opinion of the book "the grain brain" by dr David pearlmutter?

What's your opinion of the book "the grain brain" by dr David pearlmutter?

Still Controversial: John, I'm still not completely through the book, but the premise is one that I am beginning to agree with--namely that carbohydrates are the "root of all evil." Keep in mind that this assertion is still very controversial, and you will find some doctors who agree with it and some who do not--which is true of almost any new idea amongst doctors. Take care and stay well! ...Read more

How safe is a tonsilectomy? I am having mine done at the mayo clinic by dr david lott in arizona. . People keep telling me how horrible it is. I am having it done for sleep apnea ans huge tonsils. ...

Typically very safe: A tonsillectomy is typically a very safe procedure and has been performed on millions of people for many years. No procedure is completely safe, however, so your surgeon will go over all the potential risks with you before the surgery. As with all procedures, you have to do a risk/benefit analysis. Since you have sleep apnea from large tonsils, it sounds like there could be benefit to you. ...Read more

Health and wellness: what are some legitimate criticisms to david agus' book "the end of illness?"

Health and wellness: what are some legitimate criticisms to david agus' book "the end of illness?"

Probably none: Basically it is a book about diet that is appalling in the U.S. I agree that it is the major cause of disease. If you put the wrong fuel into your car, you know what would happen. First it might run poorly and eventually it might ruin the engine. Our bodies and particularly brains run efficiently when we give it the right food. ...Read more

Hi David, I'm having shoulder trouble, I fell off my bike and landed heavily on my elbow, I have pain in the shoulder. It's a bearable pain during everyday movement but and big movement backwards and across my body is incredibly painful, can you help?

Hi David, I'm having shoulder trouble, I fell off my bike and landed heavily on my elbow, I have pain in the shoulder. It's a bearable pain during everyday movement but and big movement backwards and across my body is incredibly painful, can you help?

Possibly serious: The duration of these symptoms are important. If only a few days, give it time (10-14 days) to heal with REST and protection. If it has already been more than a few weeks, you should see a doctor--suggests serious shoulder joint or rotator cuff injury. ...Read more

Well. the normal : Eyesight is 20/20. Now depending on your lifestyle and genetics you may eventually need to wear corrective lenses that is if you are not already wearing them. Some eyesights remain stable with corrective lenses, some improve and in other cases your correction may increase as you grow older. ...Read more

Neurologist and author, David Perlmutter, claims that gluten causes Alzheimer's. Can someone provide journal references on research that proves this?

Neurologist and author, David Perlmutter, claims that gluten causes Alzheimer's. Can someone provide journal references on research that proves this?

Fully disagree: There is NO solid evidence anywhere that gluten causes Alzheimer's disease, and there is NO relationship with Celiac disease and dementia, but Celiac disease does cause a Peripheral Small Fibre Neuropathy. We have some anecdotal cases of gluten sensitivity affecting MS indirectly, and maybe transient worsening of other conditions, but no Alzheimer's links. ...Read more

Neurologist david perlmutter in his new book "grain brain" says to eliminate whole grains and fruit from my diet to avoid alzheimer's. Should i?

Grain Brain: Grain brain contains some life changing ideas. Whether you adopt all the suggestions depends on your clinical status. Staying off wheat is probably a good idea for most of us -- other grains like amaranth, quinoa, etc are better. If you're Insulin resistant at all, you might need to be careful of very sweet fruits that increase your blood sugar. Berries, apples, etc are less a problem. ...Read more
