over-the-top Wheat Belly success
Jennifer is wild for the Wheat Belly lifestyle after just her first 4 weeks. Here are her recent comments:
“Before Wheat Belly, my blood pressure was 180/90 on 3 meds!
“I was on Lisinipril for 8/9 yrs. Had a bad reaction and spent 2 days in the hospital with a transfusion to get it out of my system. Thought I was dying! Ambulance and the whole thing. I told myself in that hospital bed I’m done. I want to NEVER rely on meds again. Then I was on 100 mg Metropolol, 5 mg Norvasc, 12.5 mg HCTZ, 100 mg Zoloft, and 25 mg Vistaril as needed for anxiety.
“Thanks to you, Dr. D, I have a life again with my 7-year old son. I don’t have panic attacks. My BP is low and I have energy, no knee joint pain. And I’m not hungry! LIFE IS SO GOOD.
“Today, I take the HCTZ and 50 mg Zoloft. BP 120/60 and I can walk without my knee/joints hurting. OMG SOOOOOOOO many things are good! I’m weaning off Zoloft slowly and soon will be off all meds. I go to the cardioligist next week for a check up again for heart palpitations (which are non-existent anymore). I think it’s the last time Ill be going, I’m sure. Oh, and 20 lbs of crap GONE!”
Think of it: Jennifer was clearly being treated with several, not-very-benign medications to subdue the consequences of eating wheat and grains. Suppressing symptoms such as panic attacks with medications is never as healthy as REMOVING THE CAUSE. Not only did her joint pain disappear with wheat/grain elimination, not only has her blood pressure trended down substantially, but she lost 20 pounds without reducing calories, exercising like mad, or any other weight-losing maneuver.
This is the astounding power of the Wheat Belly wheat- and grain-free lifestyle to restore health.
