Dear Friends and Guests:
My name is Dr. Scot Lewey. I have spent my professional career studying how the human gastrointestinal system affects our health and sense of well being.
It has been and continues to be an extraordinary passion of mine to see how what we consume effects us on an individual level, as well as a culture.
My clinical career has spanned 30 years and counting, and I have been privileged to serve tens of thousands of patients. My fascination with how what we consume: food and drink (as well as, medications and elicit drugs), and how we live and treat our bodies, impact our GI system and associated organs and systems, has led me to years of experience with what for years has become largely overlooked by the general practice community, as well as, other specialists in my discipline.
In this site, I will share that expertise with you and create a larger, more widely visiable community of people who understand how what we choose to consume can adversely effect our overall health and wellness. I, and a gr0wing population of my esteemed colleagues, have and continue to connect the dots to numerous other clinical ailments including cancer, neurological disorders, obesity, depression and more.
While I don't agree with a lot of things the food production industry does, this site is not about them. It's about you and how you navigate toward better health and a better understanding and practice of how you relate to and choose your diet.
My research and practice specifically on the topics of celiac and gluten sensitivity have revealed consistent medical evidence as to how food allergies can cause permanent, and in some cases, irreverable damage to our GI tract and associated organs and systems, if not understood and corrected in time. As a clinician, I am determined to help as many people as I can, lead a heathier, more productive and enjoyable life by better understanding their diet.
I'm glad you're here. Move about the site - learn, ask questions, and share your experieces. As physicians, we've learned much about food allergies and diseases, and there will always be new horizons and pearls along the way.
To your health,
Scot M. Lewey, DO
