DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. and ISTANBUL, June 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ (no author listed)-- Today, at the annual meeting of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, in Istanbul, Turkey, doctors from the University Teaching Hospital in Pavia, Italy, reported on their success in treating patients with both gastrointestinal and skin disorders by testing for food sensitivities and avoiding reactive foods.

Food sensitivity testing and dietary modification is increasingly recognized by researchers, clinicians and other health care providers as a viable treatment modality for a number of chronic health problems. The researchers used the ALCAT Test for food and chemical sensitivity, which is included in the hospital's official registry of services.

Chronic inflammatory and degenerative conditions, ranging from skin problems like eczema and psoriasis to IBS, Crohn's, and celiac disease, as well as many auto-immune diseases, respond to avoidance of specifically identified food sensitivities/intolerances.

I thought this bit in the article was very interesting-it echoes what Aatrude and others have posted about gluten sensitivity being different from celiac disease:

These study results are consistent with the work conducted by the University of Maryland’s Center for Celiac Research, led by Dr. Alessio Fasano, that recently provided the first scientific evidence demonstrating that gluten sensitivity differs from celiac disease at a molecular level and the response it elicits from the immune system.

Well, somebody needs to break the news to Shasha (sp?), the VV poster. :sarcasm:
