Why don't most doctors understand LGS and CRS?

Posted by KMD on February 13, 2000 at 03:14:36:

Walt,
It has been my experience, through my own personal research into my youngest son's autism, that most doctors do not acknowledge LGS and especially CRS and they will endlessly argue with you that candida is a normally present organism that causes us no harm and that it does not overgrow in the gut! They especially don't make ANY connection to antibiotics making the CRS worse. Why don't they get it??

Also in your book you made a mention of the Casein and Gluten free diets that many parents of autistic kids implement, and you cautioned that these severe restrictions often lead to subsequent sensitivities to other foods until the diet finally ends up being extremely limited. I liked that observation, because I think that is what happens!

My question is, if an autistic child has the LGS and the CRS, and consequently they are not breaking down the peptides from the casein and gluten and this is releasing caseomorphine and gladiomorphinewhich is said to "cause" many of the signs of autism (opioid effect), then for these kids what would you recommend? A whole foods diet, and not giving up the milk or wheat? Can the whole foods diet, as is, heal the LGS completely and the CRS without treatment with nystatin or elimination of casein and gluten?

Hi, KMD.

Remember how Pasteur was vilified by the "know everything" medical profession until nearly the day he died? Remember, how Semmelweis was hounded to his death by the same "know everything" profession. Today, the "know everything profession" has the "scientific method" to make them believe that they really have nothing else to learn---even when that very method has proven the critical nature of LGS and C-RS over and over.

We ALL would like to believe that the Tolstoy Effect no longer is a problem in our professions when it is stronger than ever!

This quote is still the way people think:

"It is impossible for anyone to begin to learn
what he believes he already knows."

Epictetus (c.a.d. 55-c135)

Fifty years from today, the health-care profession will look back on this time as the second dark age of medicine!

UNFORTUNATELY, one of the problems is that there is a LOT more money to be made treating the symptoms of LGS and C-RS than there is in TEACHING people how to get rid of them.

Leaky gut syndrome--I called it permeability--is most oftne and most severely caused by (hidden) protozoan parasitosis. usually either amoeba or giardia. Autism itself has this factor as the original cause. Severe allergies, severe blood sugar problems, the result from the parasitosis and LGS. However the parasite toxins directly are severely affecting the autistic' child's brain. See the new 4th edition of my book, Allergies and Candida for the parasite connection (cause).
