Allergies, Food Sensitivities - Intolerances

It all depends on your insurance company. In any case you will need an additional package, because basic insurance per definition is not enough. Some insurance companies will provide partial coverage, unfortunately the days when everything got reimbursed are definitely over. Dr. Boeken is a member of the Maatschappij ter Bevordering van de Orthomoleculaire Geneeskunde (MBOG). You may want to mention this when inquiring with your insurance company, since membership with the MBOG may make reimbursement more likely.

This is not true. There are effective ways of treatment available.

No. The diet is only a temporary thing. If allergies or intolerances don’t go away  during the diet, there is always the option of treatment.

This is not true. Many people experience an improvement within the first 6 months, some even after only a couple of days. 

False. All these diets, although restrictive, are general diets. As a basis, the Amsterdam Kliniek only prescribes tailor-made diet plans based on individual test results.

Quite often this is a sign of hypoglycemia, or a drop in blood sugar level, frequently seen in people suffering from food allergies and intolerances.

Many people with atopic conditions such as eczema turn out to be suffering from hidden food sensitivities. Once the offending foods have been identified and the diet has been adjusted, dramatic improvements can occur. So even when suffering from atopic complaints, it makes sense to look for food intolerances.

Psoriasis - Psorinovo Treatment

Psorinovo produces better long-lasting results if it is used non-stop. There are patients who discontinue treatment after a while. Chances are great that the symptoms will return. Quite often a very low maintenance dose is enough to remain symptom-free.

In the past a different kind of fumaric acid, which caused numerous side-effects such as flushing and diarrhoea, was administered. This made dermatologists reticent to use fumaric acid, including the improved version called Psorinovo.

In principle what your doctor says is true. However, these days, our diet only provides us with the minimum to sustain health. Extensive foo processing has greatly reduced the quality of the things we eat, so a normal diet is no guarantee. Additionally we are exposed to a multitude of external factors that have potential detrimental effects on our immune system.  For this reason, the recommended daily allowances are barely sufficient to maintain good health. 

This is an old wife’s tale. In very rare instances vitamin C can stimulate the formation of kidney stones, but this seldom occurs.

One of the most important functions of antioxidants is the fact that they block free radicals. Free radicals are very aggressive molecules that can damage the body in numerous ways. Vitamin C is still considered one of the stronger antioxidants around.

Sick or healthy, everyone should be using basic food supplements. These don’t need to be very expensive at all. Additionally, it is possible to expand beyond the basics, as dictated by lifestyle, health status and personal preference.
