Carl ’ s Wheat Belly Thanksgiving wishes

I am struck by how many people have weighed into Wheat Belly social media with expressions of gratitude: gratefulness for finally having found a sustainable way to lose and maintain weight loss, of not struggling with hunger, of having magnificent health restored, of being freed of pain and prescription medications, of rediscovering feelings of empathy and connectedness to other people. Carl shared his wonderful Wheat Belly experience detailing his health and life transformation: “Feeling thankful. “July 2017 248 lbs and November 2019 178 lbs. “Although I lost most of the weight using a different WOE (calorie resriction and exercise), I was having a hard time maintaining the weight-loss. It seemed that every time I put anything into my mouth I would gain a half a pound or a pound or two. I had also lost a lot of muscle mass and looked emaciated (I was down to 172lbs). Some even said I looked like I was sick. I was also having a hard time getting rid of the visceral fat around my belly. “I came across the Wheat Belly book while I was researching sustainable weight loss. I decided to initiate the Wheat Belly WOE in April of 2019. I also started making and consuming the L.reuteri yogurt. The Wheat Belly WOE started to yield results over the next three or four months. I gained weight at first and I was a little concerned but I think it was my body resetting my metabolism. The immediate effects we’re definitely connected to bowel flora and those resul...

Joint pain is a distressing symptom of arthritis, and it is frequently persistent even after treatments which reduce local inflammation. Continuous production of algogenic factors activate/sensitize nociceptors in the joint structures and contribute to persistent pain, a challenging and difficult condition to treat. TNF is a crucial cytokine for the pathogenesis of several rheumatic diseases, and its inhibition is a mainstay of treatment to control joint symptoms, including pain. Here, we sought to investigate the inflammatory changes and the role of TNF in dorsal root ganglia (DRG) during persistent hypernociception after...

We report a patient with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, who developed rheumatoid arthritis after exposure to natalizumab. While some multiple sclerosis therapies are known to unmask autoimmune conditions, natalizumab is rarely implicated as a cause of alternative autoimmunity. This case illustrates an unusual clinical scenario which may support recent scientific work suggesting that when natalizumab blocks T helper 1 cells from entering the central nervous system, T helper 17 cells may continue to migrate into immune-privileged spaces and cause pathologic inflammation.Brief Background: Multiple sclerosis (MS) pati...

Robin shared her husband’s life-altering Wheat Belly experience: “I wanted to encourage those just starting out and getting through the difficult detox. If you are rethinking your decision, know that you are doing the best thing you could ever do for yourself and your family. “This is a picture of my husband, Kirk. He is 50 and had plans of having to go on disability this year due to the extreme pain in every joint in his body. Walking was extremely difficult. He works 10 hours a day in lawncare. We thought he had lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. Plus he suffered horrible gout attacks that would put him dow...

Abstract Natural products have been investigated as potential candidates of novel therapeutics and play a crucial role in advanced medicinal drugs. Natural resources, including local medicinal plants (especially folk medicinal plants), animals, bacteria, and fungi have been used for more than a century, and are precious gifts from nature, providing potential medicines with high safety. Osteoclast-related diseases, such as osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, Paget's disease, osteoclastoma, and periprosthetic osteolysis, are currently the most common reasons for bone inflammation, pain and fractures, resulting in lo...

n E Abstract The role of the patella is paramount in the transmission of the quadriceps muscle forces, the increase of the lever arm, the distribution of the forces on the trochlea and the centring of the extensor apparatus. Despite the low incidence of patellar factures in comparison with other lower limb fractures, the painful and functional complications, such as knee stiffness, loss of extension and patellofemoral osteoarthritis, can be very disabling and will often compromise the return to a professional or recreational activity and induce falls in the elderly population. Treatment can be conservative or surg...

AbstractPsoriatic arthritis (PsA) is an inflammatory arthritis with distinct phenotypic subtypes. Enthesitis is assigned as a hallmark of the disease, given its significant relations to disease activity and quality of life. Our objective is to evaluate the prevalence of enthesitis and its association with some clinical parameters, particularly quality of life, using data from a national registry. Patients with PsA meeting ClASsification criteria for Psoriatic Arthritis (CASPAR) were enrolled by means of a multi-centre Turkish League Against Rheumatism (TLAR) Network Project. The following information was recorded in web-ba...

The objective of this study is to assess the impact of inflammatory arthritis on young adults ’ activity participation using quantitative and qualitative methods to advance the field’s conceptualization of functional status. Young adults diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis completed (1) the Health Assessment Questionnaire-Disability Index to determine fun ctional status and (2) the day reconstruction method to explore experiential dimensions of function, including functional performance, functional satisfaction, and severity of arthritis symptoms during activities on the previou...
