*The Glaring Example- This is a post that I found on a casein intolerance Website years ago. It shows the extreme effect that miniscule amounts of the proteins of the "big 4" can have on the central nervous system in sensitized individuals. I tell people to simply think "peanut allergy" to get a handle on how little it can take to cause major problems. Strictness in following the diet is the key to success.

My son will be 4 years-old in July.  He was a "colicky" baby from day one.  We had difficulty with breastfeeding so he went to a bottle with regular formula. He was just "sick" all the time with the usual runny/stuffy nose and he rarely slept and was chronically fussy. 

The ped diagnosed him as "formula intolerant" and we ended up on Nutramagen.  He did well and thrived on that, but he still had some chronic upper respiratory stuff and still didn't sleep well.  I just thought it was "normal" for him, assuming some babies are simply more difficult than others.  He never suffered ear infections or rashes that would tip off a ped to something more serious. 

At about 9 months when he was taking more solid foods, he seemed to get worse and then the throat infections/tonsillitis really kicked into high gear.  With mobility came new problems that seemed sensory related and then he began the self-injurious/self-mutilative behaviour, banging his head to a bloody pulp, rubbing his skin on the carpet until raw, using sharp object to claw at his arms and legs, etc. 

They told me at 14 months that he probably had a form of autism.  He was exceptionally bright so they diagnosed him with Asperger's Syndrome, Sensory Integration Dysfunction, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Anxiety Disorder and possibly Tourette's Syndrome.  Ugggh!  

I started journaling every breath he took and noted the dairy relation. I eliminated milk (the kind you drink) from his diet and noticed a dramatic change in his behaviour (for the better) but the upper respiratory symptoms still persisted (I didn't know about "hidden" dairy then).  So with this evidence I had to fight my way to an allergist.  The insurance company was a big pain. 

Finally at age 2 we got to an allergist and discovered he was allergic to alpha-lactalbumin (one of the proteins found in whey).  We totally eliminated all dairy from his diet and he's been "normal" ever since.  It completely changed our lives.

I hope you enjoyed your time here and got something important from your stay. It is my goal to help all of mankind navigate through the jungle of medical information now available on the Internet and find the truth about the origins of what we call "disease" as well as discover the natural solutions for these conditions.
We do have our health's destiny in our own hands more than we've ever imagined, certainly more than most have ever been told. Think naturally and the answer will come.

You can now go to the new site!
The New is done! Yes, the time has finally come for this homemade Website to go the way of the buffalo. I know that you all join me in looking forward to using a site that is better organized and more accessible....prettier, too! I've even corrected most of those annoying typos (I hope).

Feel free to check it out now at I am still working hard to populate all of the pages so don't worry if a link does not work. They should all be active in the near future. In the meantime, this current site will remain on-line until I get all of the bugs worked out.

Let me know what you think! It's not too late to make some changes.

would still like to hear from you personally, though.
I used to have a nice little form in this space that would allow readers to send me a quick comment or testimonial. Unfortunately, as the Interent goes, I started getting 50-100 junk emails through this form and had to remove it. 
So, until the new Website is up and running (soon!), I will have to ask people to formulate an Email of their own and send it. I do want to hear from you so I would really appreciate it if you could take the time to do this.
Simply title your Email "Visitor Comment" and include your name, occupationcomment/testimonial and return Email address (if you want to be contacted) and send it to:
dogtorj @ (Just remove the spaces on each side of the @ sign) 
Please do not use this form to ask medical questions. See the Contact section for instructions for sending DogtorJ an Email inquiry concerning a medical condition. 

Great News! will be getting a major facelift in the very near future. Yes, the time has finally come for this homemade Website to be taken over by someone who actually knows what they are doing. I know that you all join me in looking forward to having the site better organized and more accessible. It'll be prettier, too!
This is taking place for a number of reasons, the most of important of which will be revealed in the upcoming months. Yes, the book is finally in the works but there will be a major awareness project to go along with it.
So, please stay tuned. Anyone who would like to get on my mailing list can do so by simply using the visitor's comment area (like the one above) found at the bottom of each page.
Onward and upward!
