Several years ago I was referred to see a neurologist for a neck injury I received in a car accident.
This doctor is one of the top neurologists in the United States. He is a well known authority who teaches at a prestigious medical school. He is also a really nice guy.
After learning I publish Glutenfreeworks.com, he said he would pass the information to his mother, who he mentioned has gluten sensitivity. Noticing his small stature, slim build, flaking skin and 1/8th inch long paper-thin fingernails, I asked if he had been tested for celiac disease.
He chuckled and said, “I don’t have a malabsorption problem.”
One of the most distressingly common things I experience is meeting sick people who do not even know they are sick.
This physician, published and famous for his expertise in neurology, had no clue he was suffering from multiple symptoms of nutrient deficiencies. He was sick, but did not recognize the signs.
Doctors cannot recognize symptoms of nutrient deficiencies in themselves, let alone in their patients.
