Feeling good–for the first time . . . ever!

Asha posted this wonderful tale of life and health turned around minus wheat.

I am so excited! I am in my 5th or 6th week of Wheat Belly.

I was so sick. My life was all about seeing the next doctor. My earliest memories are sitting in a hospital or doctor’s office with my mom. Actually, until now I don’t ever recall feeling good. One illness after another. The doctors I went to could not figure out what was wrong, or did not have time to take a deeper look.

I saw an episode on the Doctor Oz Show a couple of months ago on wheat and Dr. Davis’ testimony about his patients, so I thought I would give it a try. My life changed forever that day. Within a week I was free of medication for diabetes, asthma, and acid reflux. My swollen joints are almost gone, even my huge swollen knee replacement knee is much smaller.

Last week I went to see my doctor about my falling blood pressure. Since I started Wheat Belly, I was having a huge blood pressure drop when I took my meds for the day. My doctor took me off one of the main blood pressure medications and I feel great! I couldn’t help but go on and on at the doctors about my Wheat Belly success. They want to keep tabs on me every 2 weeks to regulate my medication as I get even better!

I tell everyone about this wonderful change in my life. My sister and her husband are wheat-free now. Whenever I share, someone in the room has heard about it, so the word is spreading. One night while watching television I counted the commercials with wheat products that were obvious, so much is hidden in products. I could not even keep up, it was like 40 an hour.

As I share with them, I hope that they pass this on since they are seeing my results. I thought I would have high blood pressure forever because most in my family have it. I thought it was genetic or something, that my fate was to be on medication for it the rest of my life.

Diabetes, ashthma, acid reflux, hypertension–GONE within a few weeks? I’d say for a “fad,” that’s pretty darned good! Let the Wheat Lobby and nutritionally ignorant talk about the importance of a “balanced diet” and “everything in moderation,” while advising us to follow a diet dominated by grains—a style of eating for which there is virtually NO human evolutionary precedent.

    I happened to read a comment by Dr. Oz that unless you have CD or other gluten issues that wheat is fine. Of course, I disagree, but I also thought Dr. Oz was open minded. I was wondering if Dr.Davis and Dr. Oz have ever talked to each other about this and why Dr. Oz doesn’t seem open to Dr. Davis’ assertions about wheat.

        Thanks. Apparently Dr. Oz isn’t convinced.

          … or can’t afford to admit it. Yep, his web site still advocates “whole grains”.

          Based on watching the Davis interview, and on what little exposure to broadcast TV I get, I suspect that Dr. Oz needs to be very mindful of his advertisers, who sort out something like:
          a. 30% packaged foods that will main and kill you
          b. 30% meds needed to manage the symptoms of a.
          c. 10% products you simply don’t need, and
          d. 10% products that are mostly harmless

          If Dr. Oz advocates low-carb grain-free paleo, 90% of his show’s financial support could vanish.

          Also keep in mind that it’s not really a health show. It’s an entertainment show. Without the miracle food / health threat of the hour to discuss, there’d be a lot less content.

          Nonetheless, we need to applaud Dr. Oz for having Dr. Davis on. That must have rankled at least a few advertisers. And did he really run a segment on mercury amalgam fillings? That’s nervy.

            Remember when Oprah got attacked on the whole beef thing. Taking on a product is one thing taking on an entire industry is career suicide.. Obviously Dr Oz believes in it to some extent because he had him on the show n that’s how I discovered this miracle. I just started about 3 weeks ago n right away felt my hands were smaller/ less swollen, my knee problem that had been hurting since dancing at my work Christmas party basically disappeared, n my feet/ ankles are smaller/less swollen, I also dropped about 10lbs that would never come off before. I was at my highest weight of 225 (5’3) and I worked out n thought I was eating “right” before wheat belly. Aside from a serious sweet tooth, I didn’t drink soda, I didn’t eat fast food, I worked out, I love veggies n fruit and couldn’t figure out the problem. I was so stressed/ depressed over this issue. I felt fat, ugly , tired(fatigue), n helpless. I would wake up on the morning n still feel tired after many hours of sleep. Since giving up all breads, pasta, sweets I feel smaller n see a decrease in weight. Can’t wait to be under 200lbs with an ultimate goal of 141 (healthy bmi of 25). Work outs (treadmill) is so much easier without the swelling joints.. I feel lighter n workouts are easier. I am so excited for the first time in a long time!!! 34yo n I feel like I’m living for the first time in a long time… After my goal weight is reached in about 9 months or less I can’t wait to start a family n hopefully increase my chances of becoming prego.. Fingers crossed.. an exciting journey to weight loss has finally begun!!

    I certainly recommend going wheat free , it does involve some hard work at worst , but the benefits are worth it.
