Joint pain, edema, acid reflux, skin rashes: All part of the inflammation from grains
Aibreanne shared her Wheat Belly experience and photos, since she has experienced some pretty impressive relief from inflammatory health problems:
After following a friend’s astounding transformation while following Wheat Belly, I decided to try it for myself. The photo with me in the Kilkenny colors [left] is from September, 2014. I’ve had to wean myself off Protonix and Zantac. I’ve had some fits and starts and some major cheating episodes–grains are drugs, I’m addicted, I eat, I suffer, I clean up. I’m trying to reduce and eventually rid myself of sugar but my current work schedule makes it a bit tough. Some days all I have to eat is coffee with cream and sugar! But for the first time in my whole life I can finally comfortably fit into a size 14
“The second photo is from this Sunday past, 14 June, 2015. I have a collarbone (!), my knees don’t ache, my edema in my legs even after a full 14-hour workday are gone, and I have energy to spare. So far I am down 30 lbs, but the loss of inflammation is the biggest, most noticeable change. I’m not in a rush to lose a bunch more weight too quickly but am enjoying the slow and steady pace. That and I love potatoes, haha.
Aibreanne now understands that wheat and grains are essentially mind-active drugs that impair judgement, impulse, and amplify appetite. She also understands that, because of their content of indigestible or partially-digestible proteins, they exert potent inflammatory effects that manifest as joint pain, acid reflux, or edema.
Clearly, she is still young–imagine what would have happened to Aibreanne had she not discovered the Wheat Belly lifestyle and experienced another 10 or 20 years of pain and deteriorating health, succumbing to medical procedures, drug after drug to treat the consequences of wheat and grain consumption–makes you shudder just thinking about it. But that is the status quo in health: a lifetime of being given destructive dietary advice that causes so many health conditions.
But now you know! Eat no wheat or grains and take back control over health and weight.
