This is the second of four CME lectures delivered by Dr. Cady at the 4rth Annual Integrated Medicine For Mental Health Conference in Chicago, IL at McCormick Place, September 21, 2013. In it, he traces the development of the concept of "non-atopic" food allergies and the inflammatory mechanisms behind through which food to which patients have become sensitized can harm them.
A review of the medical literature, from headaches, to depression to ADHD, to brain inflammation in autism is traced to these IgG mediated food sensitivities.
At the end of this presentation, the viewer will have a much greater appreciation of the fact that children, adolescents, and adults, can have SEVERE food sensitivities that do not necessarily turn up "positive" on scratch testing or RAST testing.
The scientific literature, quoted right up to the day before the conference started, is extensive and well sourced.
Any practicing physician, and certainly any interested patient(s) should familiarize himself or herself with this content.
