Title: Ditching The Wheat Belly and Muffin Top
Guest: Dr. William Davis, a cardiologist practicing out of Milwaukee is working with his patients to reverse heart disease, and loads of other degenerative health problems that go with it, by doing an amazing this- working with their diet.
As Dr. Davis explains:
I’m not promoting drugs, fancy medical procedures, or costly equipment. I’m not promoting a process that makes a pharmaceutical company rich or helps a hospital gain more revenue-producing procedures. I’m talking about a simple change in diet that yields incredible and unexpected health benefits in so many more ways than you’d think. And it’s not just about celiac disease, the destructive intestinal disease from wheat gluten that affects 1% of the population. It’s about all the other destructive health effects of wheat consumption, from arthritis to acid reflux to schizophrenia, caused or made worse by this food we are advised to eat more of. It’s about being set free from the peculiar appetite-stimulating effects of the opiate-like compounds unique to wheat. It’s also about losing weight–10, 20, or 30 pounds is often just the start–all from this thing I call wheat belly. The key to understanding wheat’s undesirable effects is to recognize that the total effect on human health is greater than the sum of its parts.
You must listen! He's a wealth of knowledge and one of the friendliest peeps I've had the pleasure of speaking with.
