Who is right ?....Many drs believe that there is no relation between acne & (nuts, choco, diary products....Etc) & others disagree !
Is lipo ex fda approved"? I find many different opinions. Look here: http://www.Lipoadvisor.Com/lipo-ex
Yes, but...: Fda approval for medical devices means something quite different than it does for drugs. Fda device approval only requires a fairly minimal review.

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

Uncertain: I disagree with some aspects of recommended treatments such as coffee enemas for detoxification purposes. I find no convincing studies proving benefit.

Talking with people who have undergone treatment and discussing with various physicians and perhaps getting a second opinion would be worthwhile. ...Read more
