Great books – explain very well

Dear Dr Ford,
Thanks very much for talking to me recently and for forwarding copies of your books. They are most appreciated and will help me with patients who want to know more about gluten and allergies in relation to their health. They are great books and explain things very well. This is an area that was not well covered in Medical School or in my recent GP training.
Thanks very much.
Kind regards,
Dr Alison Goodwin

Eczema – hope at last

“Hi there I have come upon your book and I’m so happy I read it.” Casey.

She has had 22 years of eczema, and has found hope at last.

It has saved many children

Eczema! Cure it! – “This book is a great resource for us at the Gluten Free RN office. It has saved many children and adults from any more suffering from ‘eczema’ and other rashes. Thank you Dr. Ford!”Nadine.

“The Gluten Syndrome” a really great book

“The Gluten Syndrome” is really a great book. I highly recommend it. It’s one of those books that should be in every gluten intolerant’s library. I also think every medical professional should read it. It does take some time to adjust to the lifestyle and people do look at you like you have three heads when you tell them how you have to eat. That’s OK, because at the end of the day, you are doing what’s right for your body & you. Al (on Face-book).

The Energy Effect – fantastic information

I purchased your book The Energy Effect a few weeks ago and it has some fantastic information. I plan on lending it and recommending it to all who will listen. I find it so frustrating that people can’t make the effort to try gluten free – they find the change too difficult. If they only could feel the difference it can make!! Toni.

Jayne writes: I am just loving this e-book! (The Gluten SyndromeThis chapter really hits home with me. I have been treated like a hypochondriac all my life. Even after my diagnosis, I have trouble getting my doctor to take me seriously! I complained about the same symptoms for 40+ years and finally had my mother diagnose me!”

She goes on to describe her problem:

“My symptoms were not typical. Oh sure, I had the usual stuff like chronic diarrhea and bloating (which were mis-diagnosed as Irritable Bowel Syndrome), and mood swings. (They treated me for Bi-polar disorder) I also had the really annoying itchy,burny rash thing on the back of my head and occasionally on my elbows and knees (I was treated for Eczema and Psoriasis).

The big one, the one that signaled a real problem was the sudden periods of disorientation, when I didn’t recognize my surroundings or people I actually knew!! I was also having spells where I was extremely dizzy (diagnosed as Labrynthitis).

Although I had been plagued by most of these symptoms for as long as I can remember, no one ever connected them.

Finally, my mother saw an episode of Mystery Diagnosis (2005) about a boy named Eamon Murphy, who had moments where he just blanked out the rest of the world and his mother refused to believe he had Autism. His doctors finally put him on a Gluten Free diet and his symptoms disappeared.

I convinced my doctor to schedule me for an Endoscopy/Colonoscopy. I was finally diagnosed with “Celiac disease.”

Thank You! Jayne (Aunt Jayne) Aston

Maze ebook great reading

The ‘How to Navigate the Allergy Maze’ was great reading, it started me looking in the Marcus diet again as we have has a recent flare up, but not eczema but an allergic reation which was put down to to its just a ‘virus’.

Lots of people have downloaded this eBook – the purpose is to get people thinking about the possibilities of food allergy/intolerance if there are ongoing symptoms/ illness that remain unexplained.
