Look at Pamela’s spectacular progress that began with the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox and posted on the Detox Facebook page, showing her standing in ONE LEG of her old pants! Her experience illustrates just how awful health, weight, and life can get on the wrong way of eating, but also just how dramatic the changes can be when you finally get it right. “It’s a long one, but hang with me! “I’ve been debating whether to share this picture or not… I found my ‘before’ pants and decided to see what would happen… I thought I’d take another picture after I put on so...

In this study, we investigated the antihypertensive effect and underlying mechanisms of P. asiatica L. seeds extract (PASE) in spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR). Male SHRs were treated with 2.5 mg/kg of fosinopril (FOS) and 400 mg/kg of PASE orally per day for once or 12 weeks. SHR or Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY) receiving vehicle (distilled water) was used as control. The results demonstrated systolic, diastolic, and mean blood pressures (SBP, DBP, and MBP) were significantly lowered after single and long-term intragastric administration of PASE. The cardiac and aortic index and collagen accumulation were improved in the PA...

The Monarch external Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation (eTNS) System made history last week after it became the first device to win a nod from FDA to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It should be noted the technology has had CE mark since 2015. Monarch was developed by NeuroSigma and is indicated to help treat 7 to 12-year-olds suffering from ADHD. What makes this de novo clearance from FDA so significant is that typically pharmaceutical solutions are used to treat patients suffering from the neurological disorder. Monarch is about the size of a cellphone. The device generates a low-level electrical pulse ...

Take a look at the list of medications people have been able to stop by following the Wheat Belly lifestyle. These represent medications prescribed by doctors to, in effect, “treat” the consequences of consuming wheat and grains. They prescribe drugs to treat inflammation, swelling, skin rashes, gastrointestinal irritation, high blood sugars, airway allergy, joint pain, high blood pressure, leg edema and other abnormal effects caused by wheat and grains. The list includes anti-inflammatory and pain medication, acid reflux drugs, injectable and oral drugs for diabetes, numerous anti-hypertensive agents, asthma i...

Let’s take back control over personal health. Share this to expose healthcare for the corrupt enterprise it is. Imagine that you receive a letter in the mail stating “In order to retain your right to freedom of speech, you will be billed $10,000 per year every year for the rest of your life.” You would be—-understandably-—outraged. Freedom of speech in America is precious, something Americans have waged wars to defend, something we now view as a basic right, no financial price required to maintain it. It should be free and available to everyone regardless of religion, color, political leanin...

Well, the holidays roll around once again . . . and it’s time for everything pumpkin!

You can just have your nice big slice of pumpkin pie, even with a big dollop of whipped cream, all without worries. The pumpkin puree poses only a slight p...

One of the six core strategies in the Undoctored Wild, Naked, and Unwashed program for health and weight loss is restoration of magnesium. Magnesium deficiency is alarmingly common in today’s world. Why? Our reliance on filtered water that has had all of the magnesium removed, the reduced content of magnesium in modern crops, and the widespread use of proton pump inhibitors—-drugs prescribed to treat acid reflux and ulcers while reducing magnesium absorption. Remember those darned phytates in wheat and other grains that bind magnesium and other positively charged minerals in the intestinal tract, preventing ab...

The new Undoctored book is scheduled for release this coming May 9th, 2017, a book that shows how you can be freed from the bonds of a predatory, profit-seeking healthcare system.  Here’s a bit more from the book, now available in pre-release.   Undoctored: An excerpt Unquestionably, there are situations in which doctoring and the healthcare system are needed. If you are bleeding, injured, or struggling to breathe with pneumonia, some old-fashioned suturing, bone-setting, or antibiotics can still do the trick. Nobody around here is going to replace their own hip joint or treat a urinary tract infection with...
