I always recommend at least a one month trial off of gluten in my patients with significant neurological complaints. And here's research fresh off the press that shows that atypical celiac disease can present with few to no gastrointestinal complaints, but with powerful neurological symptoms. These can include seizures, headaches, ADHD, "behaviors," and more. Without gluten, the problem symptoms can reduce or disappear entirely.

In case you needed an excuse to go to the beach, consider the ways that "blue space" changes your brain for the better. It lowers stress levels, boosts creativity, and connects you to the rhythms of nature.

May I always remain in my sacred space and walk in balance with the rhythms of nature.

An 18 year-old young man with autism walked into my office yesterday, checked out my altar replete with seeds and crystals and candle burning, and immediately told his parents: We're safe here.
I don't do my work to impress so-called important people. I do it for people like him, and for all of these young spiritual teachers that I have the privilege of treating. This young man knows that it doesn't matter that I am the doctor and he is the patient. We are part of the same tribe of healers.
Moments like that make everything I do 100% worthwhile. ❤️
