Dr. Lawrence Halparin is a clinical professor and department head at the Gastroenterology Division in St. Paul’s hospital in Vancouver, with many years of experience.
He prescribed medication and didn’t give me many ideas about nutrition, he only said to eat bland food when I have a flareup. He explained the way colitis worked and said that they didn’t know what caused it. He is a nice doctor and he has knowledge of medication and scientific data, all within the realm of the mainstream medicine. I prefer something more on the holistic side and precisely detailed nutrition. After all, Hippocrates said that all disease starts in the gut. He also said:”let you food be your medicine and let your medicine be your food”. What I have stated here is my personal opinion and experience.
