Rajun Cajun, No Seafood, GF Gumbo This recipe comes from my good friend Kelly Pontiff. It is straight from the Bayou and one of the best gumbos I’ve ever eaten. While Louisiana is not known for its cool weather and traditionally they will eat rich spicy foods like this gumbo in the sweltering heat of summer, I really like it as a ...

Doctor B's GF/DF Pumpkin Pie Man, I love pie. It is sort of my favorite holiday thing. I can do without chocolate (yes, I, know.. sacrilege), I can do without ice cream. I don't really miss cakes, and can mostly live without cookies. But pumpkin pie in the fall is something I really do miss. Of course, pumpkin pie traditionally...

I AM, the documentary It was, I think, the fall of 2010. I was sitting at my desk writing charts at the end of a long day of seeing patients at my clinic in Seattle. I was feeling a bit sad, and more than a little lonely. The sun comes up late and goes down early in Seattle in the fall and winter months. It is easy to fe...

https://www.doctorbecky.net/post/gluten-free-oats-are-not-a-thing

Gluten-free oats are not a thing Almost daily, I see clients who know that gluten is an issue for them. They tell me that they have gone to heroic lengths to be gluten free. They are strict and dedicated to this path, and yet, mysteriously (and most unfairly) they still have symptoms. Then I review their diet details, and find that...

Elderberry, COVID-19 and the Cytokine Storm 05/04/2020

One last info-post for the weekend. I thought this info needed to get out there as well, because wow, I am hearing all kinds of crazy stuff. Here is my research digest.
Spoiler alert: Elederberry is not going to kill you.

Elderberry, COVID-19 and the Cytokine Storm My colleagues and I have been fielding a lot of questions in the past few weeks about “the elderberry controversy”. There have been several warnings circulating about the potential catastrophic effects of taking elderberry extracts with COVID-19. The concern is that elderberry extracts may cause...

03/04/2020

I am offering discounted tele-health "Immune Coaching" visits for folks that have concerns about the COVID-19 virus. I deeply believe that the key to getting through this is customized, targeted immune support. These visits include a quick triage to assess your risk factors, and then a review of the best herbs / supplements for you both to prevent illness as well as what to take (or not to take) should you fall ill. These visits are only $60, and available to anyone (you don't need to be local or an existing client). If you are worried, please let me help.

On a more personal note, it has been really tough to feel like I have important information, but am unable to give it due to shut down's, quarantines, financial panic, and the overall bias of the conventional western health system. I really want to help. I am here if you need me!
