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.
