Madeline ’ s Wheat Belly success . . . in a real world

Madeline shared her story on our Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox private Facebook page.

Both my brother and my sister have had great success with weight reduction surgery… I refuse to go that route. “I read the original Wheat Belly Book in August, 2011 while on vacation and had great success giving up gluten and soy. But it wasn’t until February, 2016 that I started my grain-free and sugar-free journey. “I started this plan with an excellent blood pressure 118/72, a pre-diabetic A1C of 6.1, and a fasting blood glucose level of 140. Taking no prescribed medications at all, I was the picture of health if you overlooked my pre-diabetes and my severe obesity. My mother had her first heart attack at the same age I am now, at 53, from a blood clot caused by und...

Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) are frequently associated with peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD) and may ultimately lead to amputations of the lower extremity. Adjuvant hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) might foster better wound healing and lower amputation rates in patients with DFU and PAOD. A systematic review was conducted to assess the effects of HBOT as an adjunctive therapy to standard treatment for patients with DFUs with PAOD.

Authors: BaHammam AS, Almeneessier AS Abstract Previous studies have assessed the role of gender and menopause in Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). It is well known that menopause is a major risk factor for OSA. However, analogous studies on obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome (OHS) are limited. Recent studies have suggested that OHS is more prevalent in postmenopausal women. Moreover, women with OHS seem to have excess comorbidities, including hypothyroidism, hypertension, pulmonary hypertension, and diabetes mellitus, compared to men. In the present perspective, we discuss recent data on the prevalence and comorbiditie...

I haven't used Stimwave since fellowship. Anyone using their technology for peripheral nerve stim? Results? Pros/Cons and feedback from patients?
