Brittany freed from IBS and nearly 40 lbs on Wheat Belly

Brittany shared her wonderful “before” and “after” Wheat Belly experience: “What Wheat Belly has done for me over the last year and a half: 210 lbs/171 lbs. “As long as I can remember, I have suffered from IBS. At 23, I had my gallbladder removed and then suffered IBS-D [irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea]. I figured out how to survive on coffee alone throughout the day to avoid clients listening to my grumbling tummy as I clipped away at hair. “My mom turned me onto Wheat Belly. She swore it would ‘fix’ my stomach issues. She was right. I can eat! I can eat during the day and feel mentally and physically better. Taking gluten/grain out of my diet has changed my life. I don’t have violent stomach pains. EVER! That’s the biggest reward for me but not the only one (size 16 to a 10!). “I’m so glad I stuck to it. It has truly changed my life.” If the Wheat Belly lifestyle were nothing more than a low-carb diet, we wouldn’t expect to see someone obtain relief from irritable bowel syndrome. But Wheat Belly relieves IBS symptoms in 90% of people who follow this lifestyle because it’s not the reduction in carbs that reverses IBS; it’s the removal of intestinal toxins such as gliadin, gliadin-derived peptides, and wheat germ agglutinin. That last one alone, wheat germ agglutinin, if eaten in sufficient quantities can provoke intestinal damage that looks exactly like celiac disease...

Expanding upon this, we sought to determine the ability of human IL-4-treated macrophages (i.e. hM(IL4)) to promote epithelial wound repair and serve as a novel anti-inflammatory cell transfer treatment for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Blood monocytes from healthy volunteers and patients with Crohn ’s disease or ulcerative colitis (active and inactive disease) were converted to m...

Publication date: Available online 14 December 2019Source: Journal of Food Composition and AnalysisAuthor(s): Kathryn M CooperAbstractThis work presents a novel, comprehensive ingredient co-occurrence network of foods in the United States from the Open Food Database. This network, which contains over 69,000 ingredients and 2 million ingredient co-occurrence relationships, provides a glimpse into the current use of common ingredients for food production and distribution in the United States. Understanding food intake behaviors from this data-driven perspective opens up new avenues for precision health and wellness, for exam...

However, ambiguities regarding the factors regulating Cd mobility and transfer in soil-plant system makes understanding of Cd accumulation mechanism in wheat grain challenging. In present study, we attempted to explore the interrelationship among soil-plant-N management factors governing Cd transfer ...

Authors: Escudero-Hernández C, Bernardo D, Arranz E, Garrote JA Abstract Celiac disease (CeD) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are chronic gastrointestinal disorders of inflammatory origin that develop in response to environmental triggers in genetically predisposed individuals. CeD localizes in the duodenal mucosa, where intolerance develops to dietary gluten from wheat, barley, rye, and some varieties of oats. IBD, in turn, is subdivided primarily into Crohn's disease (CD) and colitis, with ulcerative colitis (UC) being the most thoroughly investigated form.

ConclusionsThis case demonstrates the simultaneous presentation of multiple conditions. Oral biopsy revealed a solitary focus of granulomatous inflammation, indicative of orofacial granulomatosis. However, the biopsied lesion was also unusual in that inflammation extended into the epithelium, a relatively unusual feature for a granulomatous inflammatory disease and a pattern more commonly seen in vesiculobullous eruptions. Because this patient's CD was well controlled, it is difficult to believe that these oral lesions were associated with CD activity. One reasonable assumption is that the long-time treatment of the patien...

Authors: El-Salhy M, Gilja OH, Hatlebakk JG Abstract Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) overlap. It is not clear whether GERD is caused by non‑erosive esophagitis, or erosive esophagitis. The Rome criteria are not widely used for the diagnosis of IBS in the clinic. In total, 1,489 IBS patients without red flags were included in the present retrospective study. They comprised of 1,331 females and 158 males with a mean age of 51 years. The diagnosis of IBS was verified by endoscopic and histopathological examinations. Whereas erosive esophagitis occurred in 97% of patient...

We are told to eat “healthy whole grains” to boost fiber intake, maintain bowel regularity and intestinal health–but the exact OPPOSITE is true. Wheat and grains, especially modern wheat and grains, contain an entire collection of bowel toxins. Banish wheat and grains from your diet and you are on the path to recovering gastrointestinal health and freedom from dozens of common gastrointestinal conditions. Transcript: Hi everybody, Doctor William Davis here. I call this video “cracker bowel”, because wheat and grains are a collection of very potent bowel toxins. You know, it’s ironic is...

Follow the current debate on “healthcare reform”–which has NOTHING to do with healthcare reform, but healthcare insurance reform, by the way–and you will hear comments about the escalating and uncontrolled cost of healthcare and how people need access to it. What you will NOT hear is that fact that, because the healthcare system fails to deliver genuine health, real health is actually quite easy, straightforward, and inexpensive–nearly free. We achieve a life of being Undoctored, not becoming a profit source for the healthcare industry, not being subjected to the predatory practices of Big P...

Director chair, film slate and load horn. Here’s a proposal for you: If, by following the Wheat Belly lifestyle, a long list of conditions are reduced or reversed at no risk, almost no cost, reversing even chronic and potentially fatal conditions . . . does that mean that the notion of self-directed health might be on the horizon, i.e., putting control over health back in our own hands? I think it does. No, we will never implant our own defibrillators or take out our own gallbladders. But so many chronic health conditions afflicting modern humans recede that I believe that it is entirely reasonable to start talking a...
