Wheat Belly and inflammation
Sophia shared this enlightening and wonderful story of relief from inflammation and half a dozen anti-inflammatory drugs by eliminating the cause, grains:
“Morning from Berkshire, UK. This is me now [on the right], 3 and a half months into Wheat Belly. No drugs, no sarcoidosis, no osteoarthritis, no gastric spams, no joint inflammation, no brain fog, no redness of skin. Still ongoing disc problems but decided to wean myself off of all drugs and manage the pain with exercise, yoga, cycling and then rest.
“By drugs: omeprozole, naproxen, gabapentin, tramadol, diazepam, prednisolone, gastric drugs.
“I have lost loads of weight and 4 inches off of my waist already!
This year since my early 20’s, no hayfever??!! I suffered terribly between Feb and June each year, so took antihistamines daily.
“Thanks go to the lovely Hatty Richmond for introducing me to the Wheat Belly way of life. Thank you Dr Davis for proving that you can gain back total health. I see all food with wheat, grains, and oats as poisons that I will never, ever consume again!”
You can see the reversal of inflammation on Sophia’s face, she can perceive it in relief from allergies, acid reflux, joint pain, etc. Yes, the Wheat Belly wheat/grain-free lifestyle can be viewed as a weight loss strategy, but it is first and foremost a means of powerfully reversing inflammation.
