Be Wary of Fad Diagnosis

Fad Diagnosis – even doctors and science can’t agree. 

We hear it over and over. Some new diagnosis that suddenly everyone has or knows someone that has and thus, we need to get tested. In this article, I intend to provide my thought process for debunking fads and following sciscience-baseddical resources. I’m also providing links to credible sites where you can do your own research. 

Whether it is IBS, Leaky Gut, MTHR Gene, Hashimoto, RSD, ABC…  you know where I’m going here.  But what you don’t know is that these fads start somewhere.  When we get desperate for a solution, we buy in. And when we buy in, we lose time and a lot of money. But the worst part is we lose hope.  And that is the one thing we can’t afford to lose.  While I do a lot of research on what to do for my loved one, I try hard to avoid the arguments that erupt over what many call quackery or fads and others claim scientific proof.  Fad Diagnosis are those ideas that suddenly everyone has.  Remember when suddenly all the kids had to be checked for Attention Deficit Disorder — a new disease? Or was it too much structure and too much sitting around?  Remember when no one had a gluten intolerance but ate wheat moderately? Now it is more popular than ever to claim a gluten intolerance.  These are fads.  Maybe there is a little thread of validity?
