Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Twelve cases of multiple food sensitivity were studied. All had responded to food elimination and a number were receiving sublingual food desensitization drops. An underlying cause was postulated and looked for. The method used was an electrical recording technique called the segmental electrogram. All of the cases were seen to have a primary colonic dysfunction which has been described as Dysbiosis. It was assumed that the colonic dysfunction was due to abnormal intestinal flora and this was corrected by a repopulation of the bowel with normal commensals and the simultaneous stimulation of liver and pancreatic function. This resulted in all of the patients losing at least a number of their sensitivities and those who were on sublingual desensitization drops were able to stop these drops and tolerate the foods without any further problem. It has postulated that much of multiple food and chemical sensitivity is due to underlying causes of which Dysbiosis is one.
