Autoimmune diseases and vitamin D
While vitamin D deficiency does not initiate the process of autoimmunity in which the body’s immune system wages an attack on an organ such as the thyroid, skin, pancreas, or joints, it plays a “permissive” role, i..e, vitamin D deficiency allows some other factor to initiate the process. For this reason, getting your vitamin D blood level into an ideal range provides great advantage in preventing autoimmunity or in helping you reverse it.

Why losing weight can be dangerous to your health
So many people are embarking on weight loss programs that hold potential for health hazards. Here’s a video from my YouTube channel about how choosing the wrong weight loss program can lead you down the path of health disasters, as well as not provide the weight loss benefits you desire. Losing weight per se is not dangerous—it’s the method you choose to lose weight that can introduce genuine risks to your health. Choose the wrong method and you can end up with gallstones and gallbladder surgery, osteopenia/osteoporosis, kidney stones, even heart attack. Here is some additional discussion about common we...

The Achille ’ s Heel of Low-Carb Diets
There are a number of variations on low-carb diets—Atkins’, ketogenic, paleo, carnivorous, South Beach, even my Wheat Belly and Undoctored programs. While low-carb diets are clearly superior to low-fat diets, they have a weakness: failure to take in a healthy quantity of prebiotic fibers to nourish bowel flora. This has substantial long-term health implications. This is why in the Wheat Belly program we aim to take in at least 20 grams prebiotic fibers per day.

What happens to your body when you lose weight
    When you lose weight, where does it go? You mobilize stored fat as triglycerides that flood the bloodstream. This phenomenon can be seen if someone performs blood tests and identifies a substantial rise in triglycerides and other changes, phenomena that can be confusing, even to doctors. Understand and recognize what happens during successful weight loss so that a doctor does not try to “treat” this phenomenon.
