Migraines, plantar fasciitis, joint pain, heartburn . . . gone
Elizabeth shared her emerging experience of health and life transformation by adopting the Wheat Belly lifestyle:
“I am 34 years old, married with no kids. I suffered from hypertension, heart problems, plantar fasciitis, joint pains, heartburn, migraines and I was overweight.
“After 60 days of wheat-free lifestyle, I feel so much better. I look better and I have never been so active! So far, I have shed 15 lbs, went down two dress sizes and lost 3 inches around my waist. I might have to do some shopping for smaller clothes!
“More importantly, I feel lighter, I can walk miles and climb steps without pain. My after-work migraines are also gone and I sleep so much better now. I know this is just the start and I can not imagine going back to my old habits again. You have changed my life in many ways.”
No amount of weight loss or calorie counting will provide relief from plantar fasciitis. No exercise program will provide relief from migraine headaches. Cutting fat and cholesterol does not reverse joint pain. In other words, the Wheat Belly lifestyle adds up to far more than just weight loss, though weight loss obviously figures prominently among the benefits of this lifestyle.
And, as often happens around here, look at the changes in Elizabeth’s appearance. Yes, her expressions are different in each photo, but I believe you can nonetheless make out the reduced facial swelling/edema and larger eyes that develop due to the reversal of skin/facial inflammation that parallels the reversed inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract, joints, heart, even brain.
In following the Wheat Belly wheat/grain-free lifestyle, the total is greater than the sum of the parts. The benefits of following this lifestyle even continue to astound me, even after having witnessed so many people undergo such magnificent transformations.
