Eight years of Wheat Belly successes

I was looking back over the last 8 years since the first Wheat Belly book was released. It’s been 8 years of astounding, truly breathtaking stories of success over weight issues, health, and physical transformations that skeptics even today claim are impossible. It’s been a virtual avalanche of wonderful stories. Although I’ve seen all of them, often more than once, I could not help but be overcome with satisfaction and pride for the many, many spectacular photos and stories people have shared. So I thought it would be fun to re-post a small sample of some of these stories dating back from the start of the Wheat Belly lifestyle back in 2011.  If you see yourself in this post, please post an update!   2011–Anonymous “I have had suffered in secret with what I thought was bulimia for 30 years. I can’t even believe it, but since giving up gluten I no longer have the urge to throw up. I used to feel sick after nearly every meal. I seriously thought I would eventually die from an injury to my esophagus. “I have not felt sick even once since giving up gluten. Not once. I feel free for the first time in memory. “I am astounded by how different my body feels, and I never even knew how bad I felt because it was all I ever had felt…it was my “normal.” I had to share this with someone and because my “eating disorder” has been completely in secret, I can’t tell anyone I know. “(I should me...

I’ve struggled with professional identity from time to time, but after completing my PhD thesis looking at how people live well with pain, I’ve developed a new understanding of how occupational therapists add value in this area of practice. Occupational therapists joke that “no-one knows what an occupational therapist does” – and sadly, that’s true. It’s not because what we do isn’t important, it’s because our view of people and the way we work with people differs from most health professions. Occupational therapists don’t treat disease per se, we work with peo...

Abstract What biological factors account for resilience to pain or to behavioral stress? Here, we discuss examples of cellular and molecular mechanisms within disparate parts of the nervous system as contributors to such resilience. In some especially well-studied humans, it is possible to identify particular neuronal cell types in the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and pinpoint specific genes that are major contributors to pain resilience. We also discuss more complex factors that operate within the central nervous system (CNS) to confer resilience to behavioral stress. We propose that genetic and neurobiologica...

This study aimed to evaluate patients' satisfaction with their interactions with PIC staff and whether sociodemographic factors, depression and anxiety symptoms were associated with their perceptions of these interactions. In this cross-sectional study, we collected data from 84 patients receiving inpatient care in three psychiatric settings in Sweden. The patients' perceptions of interactions with staff and self-reported degrees of depression and anxiety were evaluated through questionnaires. Overall, patients were satisfied with the patient-staff interaction. However, significantly higher scores were related to staffs' p...

Abstract Opioids play a pivotal role in pain transmission but are also able to modulate immune cell functions. In the last decades a connection between opioids and integrins-adhesion molecules involved, among many other processes, in leukocyte recruitment at inflamed site-has been established. To study immune cell integrin-mediated adhesion, cell adhesion assay is a simple, reproducible, and valuable tool capable of unraveling concentration-dependent effects of a test candidate on integrin-mediated cell adhesion.

Abstract MOR expression levels at a specific cell type or tissue significantly contribute to its role in pain transmission and in other responses involving opioid receptors. Therefore, molecular processes regulating MOR levels have gained more and more interest. Recently, posttranscriptional regulation mechanisms have been shown to play a relevant role in influencing MOR expression levels, with polymorphisms and mutations within OPRM1 3'-UTR region impacting the differential opioid-mediated response observed within individuals. Here we report a Renilla luciferase reporter assay format suitable for dissecting the c...

r M Abstract Glyphosate is the most used herbicide worldwide, targeting physiological pathways in plants. Recent studies have shown that glyphosate can also cause toxic effects in animals. We investigated the glyphosate-based herbicide (GBH)-induced changes in potato (Solanum tuberosum) plant chemistry and the effects of a GBH on the survival rate and oxidative status of the Colorado potato beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata). The beetles were reared on potato plants grown in pots containing soil treated with a GBH (Roundup Gold, 450 g/l) or untreated soil (water control). The 2nd instar larvae were introduced...
