Is your “incurable” disease 100% curable?
That could be the case for thousands
of Americans—including you!
This is exactly what’s wrong with our society. A food that’s completely unnecessary for human health and longevity——and one that your body was never meant to ingest or digest——is introduced into the world because it’s easy, convenient, and inexpensive.
In small quantities, it doesn’t seem to do any damage at all. But then, over time, the food is genetically altered beyond all recognition, added to every possible food sitting on the grocery store shelves, and eventually reinvented as a health food in a nutrition-less society.
And when your body (amazing machine that it is) recognizes it as a threat and does everything it can to reject it, people think something is wrong with YOU!
It’s time to set the record straight. Some foods just weren’t meant to be eaten——no matter how high up they rank on modern-day pyramids. And this one is a doozie. It’s responsible for stimulating your appetite, packing on belly fat, and raising blood sugar. It’s been linked to celiac disease, diabetes, heart disease, and arthritis.
And worst of all, it releases endorphins that keep you hooked on it! And if that’s not enough, I can give you...
55 more reasons why this “health food” has?no place on your dinner plate
If you haven’t already guessed by now, I’m talking about grain——more specifically, a protein found in the grains wheat, barley, rye, and oats: It’s called gluten. And if bread, pasta, chips, pizza, and processed foods are a major part of your diet, then so is gluten.
What’s the big deal? you’re wondering. The big deal is that your body was never meant to digest grain. Grains were part of the agricultural revolution that put a stop to the hunter-gatherer caveman——and put a start to the downfall of optimal, healthful living.
To say your body just works better on a grain-free diet is an understatement. This stuff is so bad it can kill you.
Because gluten was never meant to be part of your diet, your body can recognize it as a foreign invader, and can initiate an immune reaction called gluten intolerance or gluten sensitivity. Most doctors know to look for the telltale signs of gluten sensitivity, such as abdominal bloating, diarrhea, constipation, gaseousness, nausea, or acid reflux.
That’s the bad news——but it gets worse... In some people, gluten sparks an autoimmune response in the body, which means that it literally causes your body to attack itself. But unlike gluten sensitivity, you can have celiac disease with no intestinal symptoms whatsoever.
Most doctors have no idea that this is the case. So if you go to your doctor complaining of something seemingly unrelated, he likely won’t even consider gluten sensitivity as a possible cause.
Which brings me back to that “55” number. A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found no less than 55 diseases that can be caused by eating gluten. Fifty-five!
These aren’t minor problems like a stomachache or a rash, either. In many cases, the diseases triggered by this food are major, life altering, and “incurable.” These include autoimmune diseases such as lupus, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis; psychiatric and neurological diseases such as anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, dementia, and migraines; and plenty of others, including osteoporosis, anemia, fatigue, canker sores, and even cancer.
If more doctors knew that simple fact, more people would be properly diagnosed. As it is, thousands of people will suffer for the rest of their lives from a debilitating disease that could be cured without a single drug, and without spending a dime.
But doctors aren’t “in the know,” and they rarely identify the true cause of your illness. As a result, thousands of Americans are put on harmful prescription drugs that not only cost them an arm and a leg——but could cost them their health as well! In fact a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found this alarming fact:
This completely avoidable trigger can ?increase your risk of death by 72 percent
This wasn’t a small study, either. It looked at nearly 30,000 patients over nearly 40 years, and found that any kind of gluten sensitivity at all is bad news, whether you have full-blown celiac disease or not. Take a look at the numbers:
? Those with celiac disease had 39-percent increased death risk
? Those with gut inflammation caused by gluten had a 72-percent increased death risk
? Those with gluten sensitivity (but no celiac disease) had a 35-percent increased death risk
In other words, whether you have full-blown celiac disease or “just” gluten sensitivity, you have a higher risk of dying from heart disease and cancer.
And yet most Americans would tell you that grain is necessary for a healthy, balanced diet. Oh yeah? Says who? The only argument that grain is good for you is that the government says it is. Well wooptie-do! Since when did Uncle Sam become the end-all, be-all on your health? Since never!
Stop consulting USDA policies and looking to government agencies as the ultimate authority on your health. When it comes to food and your health, if the government supports it, you should question it. Who’s paying them? Who stands to gain from this? The answer is never, ever Y-O-U.
Because it has the government’s backing, any studies that reveal gluten for what it really is——a foreign substance that’s wreaking havoc on our society——are ignored or discredited. Ultimately, nothing changes, and even doctors themselves are ignorant of the damage this substance is doing to your health (intentional or unintentional is anyone’s guess——medical schools aren’t what they used to be).
This is especially alarming when you know that an estimated three million Americans are suffering from some form of gluten sensitivity——and 99 percent of them are completely oblivious to it. And with the incidence of full-blown celiac disease 400-percent higher than it was just 50 years ago, you can see this is just the tip of an all-out health catastrophe.
If people only knew the truth, they’d know that...
This “incurable” disease is 100% curable!
No amount of drugs, therapies, treatments, or gimmicks is going to work if gluten sensitivity is at the root of your health problems... because there’s no drug that can treat gluten sensitivity or celiac disease. And even if there were, why would you want to take it when there is a way to completely cure the disease that won’t cost you a dime?
All you have to do is completely eliminate gluten from your diet——which shouldn’t be difficult, since you shouldn’t be eating it in the first place!
I could tell you about a handful of tests that test for gluten sensitivity or celiac disease, but why spend the time and money when you can find out the answer for yourself by doing something that you should be doing anyway: eliminate gluten from your diet. No cheating. No hidden sources. No “oops” moments.
Then, after a month or so, add gluten-containing foods back into your diet and see how you feel. If your “undiagnosed” symptoms return, you’ve got your answer.
(And if you insist on getting a test, get a secretory IgA (sIgA) anti-gliadin antibody test.)
But whether you have symptoms that you’re aware of or not, and whether you’re trying to treat a certain condition or not, you should stay away from this food. You don’t need it, no matter what the Michelle Obamas of the day are saying.
All you need for a full, healthy diet is protein and saturated fat. And if you want to toss in some fruits and vegetables for variety, be my guest——but I’ll never tell you that you have to. (I told you about the Caveman Diet back in September. Check the archives for a handy list of do’s and dont’s.)
In the meantime, the best “don’t” you can do is to completely eliminate gluten from your diet. For a complete list of foods that contain gluten, visit www.celiac.com. Some sources are obvious (like wheat, barley, rye, spelt, kamut, and oats). But some sources aren’t so obvious (like soup mixes, salad dressings——even lipsticks and some vitamins!).
