Testimony of the Day
For many years, I have been plagued with many auto-immune maladies. Most of them were just bothers, skin problems, aches, burning tongue. I had been on a low dose of Prednisone since 2002. About a year and a half ago, I was diagnosed with Pericarditis and then after several months of tests, Giant Cell Arthritis ( which is inflammation of the arteries going through my temple to the brain). The tests showed major inflammation in my body so I was put on very large doses of Prednisone. That caused many more problems. We have been trying to lower the dose for about 6 months and it has been up and down. I have had lab tests every two weeks for the last 15 months.
Then, 5 weeks ago, I began my lifestyle change mainly because it was touted to be good for inflammation and I had gained lots of weight with the help of the Prednisone. After the first two weeks into your program, my inflammation tests were still high but last week, both indicators showed that my levels were in the normal range. That is the first time in more than 10 years. I can’t tell you how happy that has made me and my family. I am a believer!!!!! I feel good. I don’t miss either the gluten or the sugar. I can’t thank you both enough for the guidance and information. It just proves that you can teach an old dog, new tricks. Thanks again, Molly”

This was delicious! Thank you for the recipe!
What do you think about Amoretti corn extract in this? I used the sweet corn in faux cornbread and it was amazing.
It looks like it might be an ok option. 🙂
