Cracker Bowel: Why Grains are Toxic to the Human Gastrointestinal Tract

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 isn’t it, that we’re told that we need to eat wheat and grains; need to include them at every meal; because they’re so good for bowel health; because of bran or fiber content, for instance. Well, that’s true. You can get more cellulose fiber, like sawdust, by eating grains, but this idea that grains are necessary for bowel health is complete nonsense. In fact, the opposite is true. Wheat and grains, particularly modern wheat and grains, are a collection of very toxic compounds to your gastrointestinal tract. For instance, the gliadin protein within gluten, besides triggering celiac disease, also directly damages the intestinal lining. That’s because, recall that we cannot break down, we can’t digest, the proteins in grains, because we don’t have the enzymes to do that. If you eat an egg, or a piece of bacon, or a hambu...

CONCLUSIONS: The development of a full triad and additional symptomatology suggests a late recognition of signs and symptoms of WE in schizophrenia. Prophylactic thiamine checks and treatment in patients with schizophrenia are relevant, and if WE is suspected adequate parenteral thiamine supplementation is necessary. Key points Only few cases of schizophrenia-related WE have been published in the literature, though challenges in diagnosing and recognising WE suggest that the vast majority of cases go undetected. Acute thiamine deficiency leads to Wernicke's Encephalopathy. Patients diagnosed with schizophrenia are at risk ...

The opioid epidemic has plagued the United States with high levels of abuse and poor quality of life for chronic pain patients requiring continuous use of opioids. New drug discovery efforts have been implemented to mitigate this epidemic; however, new medications are still limited by low efficacy and/or high side effect and abuse potential. Intermittent fasting (IF) has recently been shown to improve a variety of pathological states, including stroke and neuroinflammation. Numerous animal and human studies have shown the benefits of IF in these disease states, but not in pain and opioid treatment. We thus subjected male a...

This study describes our experience with 4 preparatory protocols used in our institution.MethodsFDG PET/CT scans were performed according to 4 preparatory protocols (716 scans total), i.e. 6-h fast (group 1), low-carbohydrate diet plus 12-h fast (group 2), low-carbohydrate diet plus 12-h fast plus intravenous heparin pre-administration (15  IU/kg) (group 3), and low-carbohydrate diet plus 12-h fast plus intravenous heparin pre-administration (50 IU/kg) (group 4). Consecutive scans were retrospectively included from time frames during which the particular protocol was used. FDG uptake in normal myocardium was scor...

Authors: Tamaki S, Imaishi H Abstract Human cytochrome P450 (or CYP) inhibition rates were investigated in sera from high fat diet (HFD)-induced type 2 diabetes (T2D), T2D recovered, and asymptomatic mice models to verify whether P450 inhibition assays could be used for the detection of disease, evaluation of therapeutic effect, and early diagnosis of T2D. In T2D mice, the blood glucose levels markedly increased; while blood glucose levels of recovered mice exceeded 200 mg dL-1, these eventually returned to the levels seen in control mice. In asymptomatic mice fed with short term HFD (stHFD), no changes i...

The ectoenzymes CD39 and CD73 play a major role in controlling tissue inflammation by regulating the balance between adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and adenosine. Still, little is known about the role of these two enzymes and ATP and its metabolites in the pathophysiology of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We isolated mononuclear cells from peripheral blood and lamina propria of the large intestine of patients diagnosed with IBD and of healthy volunteers. We then comprehensively analyzed the CD39 and CD73 expression patterns together with markers of activation (HLA-DR, CD38), differentiation (CCR7, CD45RA) and tissue-resid...
