Dr. Wallach starts todays show discussing gluten intolerance. Contending that there are two ways for people to have gluten intolerance problems. The first is when a breast feeding mother doesn't have the abitlity to digest long chain polypeptides so the baby developes gluten intolerances. Or adults who are on a salt restricted diet so their stomach acid isn't strong enough to digest the gluten and eventually develope an intolerance.
Pearls of Wisdom
Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news story regarding hearing loss in babies. Most states require new borns to have auditory tests prior to leaving the hospital after birth. Unfortunately some fail the tests because they have auditory neuropathy. With this disorder the sound enters the ear normally but the transmission of the signal to the brain becomes distorted. Often these babies are misdiagnosed and given hear aids which can destroy their hearing in as little as a week. Many of the babies born with this will grow out of auditory neuropathy provided they aren't fitted with hearing aids.
