THE GUT IS A MISUNDERSTOOD ORGAN – Altered Bowel Ecology

Majid Ali, M.D. The bowel ecosystem is always injured in chronic states, and its restoration is one of my top priorities in my integrative program for reversing chronic diseases. In pharmaceutical medicine, when the symptoms are directly related to the gut, the treatment strategy consists of symptom suppression with drugs. When the symptoms are not directly related to the gut,

SEED, FEED AND WEED Approach to Healing

Majid Ali, M.D. In my book The Canaries and Chronic Fatigue (1994), I described my Seed, Feed and Weed approach for restoring bowel ecosystem as one of the two centerpieces of my integrative program for reversing chronic illness. Below, I reproduce some text from that volume. I refer the readers interested in a deeper understanding of the underlying scientific principles to

DR. Ali’s Anti-Fermentation Protocols – Part Two

Majid Ali, M.D. (for practitioners) In this part two of my Fermentation Control Protocol, I describe a robust anti-fungal, anti-fermentation program for consideration by physicians. It is a program that I have found to be clinically effective for chronic, persistent, and  disabling inflammatory and immune disorders. These are conditions which are often resistant to all-natural remedies and require robust antifungal therapies. These

Changing Profile of Celiac Disease

Majid Ali, M.D.   An important  2014 Italian study revealed that the clinical profile of celiac disease changed over time with an increasing rate of non-classical and subclinical phenotypes. The Result Section of that study report (Citation at the end) is reproduced below. The three illustration in the article follow the text of Result Section.   Disease onset was symptomatic in 610

True celiac disease accounts for a relatively smapp number of individuals clinically diagnosed to have gluten sensitivity.

Why Is Celiac Disease Profile Changing Rapidly?

Majid Ali, M.D. Proliferation of humankind and spread all over the globe was primarily fueled by wheat energy. Who would have imagined that wheat would be demonized as a killer grain in twentieth century? How did it come to pass that every self-respecting grocery store would stock shelf after shelf with gluten-free foods? The answer: In the United States, we own

Oxygen Model of Gluten Sensitivity and Celiac Disease

Majid Ali, M.D. Oxygen Model of Gluten Sensitivity and Celiac Disease? Medical models are proposed for two reasons: (1) to reduce complexities in biology to workable simplicities; and (2) to predict clinical outcomes of therapies designed to underlying causes and improve clinical results. My Oxygen Model of Gluten Sensitivity and Celiac Disease meets these two essential characteristics of a valid
