So, I’m diggin heavily on Dr. Amy Myers’ website. If you’re new to all this and don’t know where to start, or despairing that there aren’t doctors out there to help get to the bottom of things (with MD’s, thankyouverymuch), take a look at it and take comfort.
Dr Meyers is a functional medicine practitioner (fancy talk for an MD who’s fighting the good fight to actually make people better within our current scientific capabilities and understanding– think DNA tests, finding the root cause instead of treating symptoms).
She has a basic article here on the ABC’s of autoimmunity, and things everyone can try to start reversing theirs.
Also of interest, she has some good, basic articles on:
And then here’s a great podcast she did with some more advanced content, speaking with Dr. David Brady about his research and clinical experience with Autoimmunity at his practice in Connecticut.
There you go. 2 real medical doctors who won’t look at you like you’re nuts when you say “I think it’s leaky gut.”
Safety in numbers,
