happened to Michelle . . . in just 10 days!
Michelle shared the results she has
experienced during her initial 10 days
of the Wheat Belly lifestyle:
“I started May 1, 2015. I have lost
7 lbs but so much swelling. I have Sjögren’s syndrome
and am on several meds that I want off of.”
discussed how the Wheat
Belly lifestyle stacks the odds in favor of reversing the 200
or so conditions of autoimmunity, especially when combined with
anti-inflammatory nutritional supplements such as
vitamin D and the EPA
and DHA omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil (only–never
krill oil or flaxseed/chia), and a full program of
cultivating healthy bowel
flora. So Michelle has a terrific chance of reducing the
inflammation of her Sjögren’s syndrome, if not achieving
outright remission. She may thereby avoid the dry eyes, dry
mouth, joint inflammation, and organ inflammation characteristic of this condition.
Following this approach does not reverse
every autoimmune condition fully, but it nearly always yields at
least partial improvement. And, unlike the prescription drugs used
to “treat” autoimmunity accompanied by side effects
such as causing diabetes and liver damage, the Wheat Belly
strategies yield across-the-board health benefits–there is NOTHING to lose.
If Michelle can achieve a reduction in
inflammation this quickly, reflected by the wonderful changes in
her facial appearance, I am hopeful that she will manage to have
her Sjögren’s syndrome recede, as well.
