Just how much “healthcare” do you need minus grains?

Jamilyn shared her early experience with this lifestyle: “I started Wheat Belly February 9th, 2015. I have lost 20 pounds in just over 2 months and 10 on my own in the 9 months prior to WB–30 pounds difference from the first picture to the 3rd picture. “I have eliminated all of the many medications I was taking for migraines, IBS, gastroparesis, chronic sinusitis, and joint pain. I haven’t taken Allegra or Flonase (which I have taken everyday since I was in my 20’s) since the second day of Wheat Belly. I no longer need my Protonix, Reglan, Carafate, or Zofran for my gastroparesis either. No migraines since the day before I started Wheat Belly. I have battled migraines daily since the 4th grade. This is the best I have felt in my entire life. “Thank you so much! Words could never express the joy and freedom you have given me. I have a long way to go but I can’t thank you enough for the progress I have made in the past 2 months!” Migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, gastroparesis (in which food stays in the stomach for hours and can putrefy and change bowel flora), sinusitis, joint inflammation–that’s a pretty impressive list. It’s a list of conditions reversed with Jamilyn’s elimination of wheat and grains, conditions formerly treated with multiple, costly, and toxic medications. This is why I often say that the “healthcare” is, to a large degree, nothing more than the system we’ve crea...

Uterine fibroids (leiomyoma) are benign monoclonal neoplasms of the myometrium and represent the most common tumors in women worldwide. Tumors occur in ∼77% of women overall and are clinically manifest in ∼25% by age 45 years. Although benign, these tumors are nonetheless associated with significant morbidity; they are the primary indication for hysterectomy, and a major source of gynecologic and reproductive dysfunction, ranging from profuse m enstrual bleeding and pelvic pain to infertility, recurrent miscarriage, and preterm labor.

AbstractAdolescents seeking bariatric surgery may present with pre-existing psychiatric diagnoses for which they use chronic medications. To heighten awareness concerning perioperative polypharmacy in adolescents with extreme obesity, we conducted a retrospective review of patients undergoing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy between February 2010 and May 2017 at Children ’s National Health System (CNHS). A total of 167 adolescent patients had pre-existing psychiatric diagnoses which included depression (50%), anxiety (23%), ADHD (23%), and binge eating disorder (11%). Medications prescribed to treat these diagnoses in...

It is often associated with pain in the cervicofacial region, and muscle contraction. To investigate whether muscle contraction can cause permanent posterior rotation of the head and whether treatment with splint and kinetotherapy is efficient, a literature review was carried out of patients with pain in the cervicofacial area. Additionally, the case of a 15-year old patient pres...

It’s peculiar but instructive: phenomena triggered by re-exposure after being confidently wheat- and grain-free. The re-exposure can be intentional, as in “Just one can’t hurt!” or it can be inadvertent, as in “That gravy looks safe.” Typically, someone will be wheat/grain-free for at least a week. Re-exposure from, say, salad dressing or seasoning mix then triggers re-exposure fireworks. The most common re-exposure phenomena to are: Gastrointestinal distress, bloating, and diarrhea that can last hours to a couple of days. (People with celiac disease can have problems for months, h...

I posed this question recently: Given the extravagant health successes people are experiencing by living the Wheat Belly lifestyle, are we on the dawn of an age of self-direction in health? If doctors misdiagnose/misclassify our acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, intractable constipation, migraine headaches, chronic sinusitis, asthma, depression, binge eating disorder, type 2 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, autoimmune hepatitis, and hundreds of other conditions, which we then reverse on our own with the lifestyle changes we introduce . . . who needs the doctors? Christine provided her perspective: &...
