Curing Power of Food: Holistic Cancer Therapy Diet

There is no one way to cure cancer. To face down one of our nation’s top killers, we need the support of an integrated, multidisciplinary team. The newest developments in medicine and the latest advances in thermogram, ultrasound and mammography technology are extremely useful. Supporting these efforts with a healthy immune system can make a world of difference.

The Gerson Therapy is applicable to most any chronic ailment. It's another example of the curing power of food, and the innate healing capabilities of our own cells. These days it is difficult to navigate grocery stores to build healthful dinner plates. Our lifestyles and food options are not always conducive to promoting vibrant, complete health. The Gerson Therapy is an extreme elimination diet, necessary for those who are very ill and in great need of detoxification, or an option for those who wish to live a very pure lifestyle in order to prevent the onset of disease. Wherever you are in your path of healing, we hope these stories inspire you to trust in the power of your own body.

At Digestive Health Ann Arbor we provide professional and compassionate care guiding people towards a comprehensive and holistic strategy of healing. Restoring your body to health will restore the quality of your life.

A 3-Step Solution for Digestive Health: Testing Methods for Food Allergies

Digestive Health Ann Arbor’s 3-step method offers relief from food allergy symptoms and digestive disorders. 
1. Discover what foods  are triggers. 
2. Exclude the trigger food completely from our diet. 
3. Nourish stressed systems with supplements and enzymes.
But how do we know what foods cause us trouble? If we suspect a food allergy contributes to our poor health, must we complete a tedious elimination diet for a month? Fortunately, technology has paved the way for rapid and accurate techniques. 
RAST Blood Test
Most doctors perform RAST examinations (short for radioallergosorbent test). RAST results show only acute immune reactions to food. At Ann Arbor Holistic Health we complete this test along side the ELISA blood test for more complete results.
ELISA Blood Test 
The most comprehensive digestive diagnostic tool is the ELISA blood test, which examines your body’s reaction to 96 different food allergens including gluten, dairy, eggs, soy and peanuts, and more. This simple test also allows health professionals to efficiently check for the severity of allergies, ranging from IgE (most severe), IgA (moderate) and IgG (least severe). Sound too easy? Since 70% of the immune system is located in our digestive tract, removing trigger foods can lead to radical improvements in our well-being. It is time to transform our search for solutions and it is time for solutions that will transform us.

Dialing a New Number: Changing the Dialogue about Health

This blog is about challenging conventional medical wisdom. At Digestive Health Ann Arbor, our goal is to transform the conversation when it comes to your health. We would like to change the way people speak about their symptoms, conditions and diagnosis while exploring where these issues truly originate. There are over 1400 peer reviewed articles in PubMed implicating food allergies and digestive disorders in many illnesses, including Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Asthma and Psoriasis just to name a few. Despite this astounding number of articles, the medical community has remained surprisingly silent. These conditions are all about inflammation, yet no one asks about the origin of the inflammation itself. Medications reduce the level of inflammation and help manage pain, but they will not resolve the underlying cause.

In future blog entries, we will explore the effect of gluten intolerances, food allergies, inflammation, and other digestive issues on our general health and wellness, and provide resources for healing. Welcome to our first blog entry.
