Dr. Li is a short, smiley Chinese man who moves quickly and silently. He sits me down in his small office.
“Tell me how I can help you.”
His English is good but his accent is thick.
“I was diagnosed with MS last year. I have some left-sided weakness….”
“Here’s what I know about MS,” he interrupts. “It is caused by inflammation, especially in your gut. You need to avoid dairy, raw vegetables, beans, seeds, nuts, brown rice and drinks with bubbles. You need to do a lot of burp and a lot of fart. How you burp? You fart good? You fart a lot?”
