This is not the official site of the Seignalet association. This site is the work of Chris Parkinson, translator, amateur naturopath, health journalist, author and blogger. While it is primarily concerned with promoting and vulgarising the work of Dr. Jean Seignalet, you will also find information and my own opinions about how best to implement the "original", "ancestral" or "hypotoxic" diet as Dr. Seignalet called it, influenced by my own research.
For example I think obesity caused by junk diets is far more of a problem in today's English speaking countries, particularly the US, than it was in the France of Dr. Seignalet. I'm convinced that the Seignalet diet is the only real solution, apart from fasting (which has its own dangers of course), for hugely overweight people to regain their health and just as importantly, their dignity.
At the same time, the very effectiveness of the diet in this case causes me concern because as Dr. Seignalet pointed out and as fasting specialists have known for a century and a half now, harmful "toxins" from our diet that Dr. Seignalet identified as Maillard molecules and isomers from cooked foods, particularly grilled meats, penetrate a gut damaged from eating "modern" foods and end up stockpiled in our cells and cell interstices and adipocytes (fat cells). I am particularly concerned about what happens when the liver and kidneys struggle to eliminate a huge flux of these "toxins" as the body heals and gets rid of it's excess fatty tissue, in obese people especially. So in my own book and in my blog articles, I propose extra precautions to make sure that an obese person can use the Seignalet diet safely. Please be aware of two things:
1) The notion of "detoxing" is not currently accepted as a real phenomenon by orthodox medicine and in my opinion, never will be. Not only is the notion not accepted, it is openly derided by some "big pharma" propagandists.
2) I am not a doctor, Therefore I ask that any qualified doctors who practise "integrative" medicine or naturopathic or holistic medicine please read my literature and get in touch with me immediately if you think that any of my advice is harmful or dangerous so that I can modify it.
