Testimony of the Day

Hi Maria,

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”

Grits and Other Grains 

Another question I am frequently asked is about grits and wild rice. Yes, they are gluten-free, but for those with a damaged gut (leaky gut) or a damaged metabolism or anyone who wants to become keto-adapted, it is way too high in carbs. It is disturbing to find that 60% of adults never completely heal from the celiac disease despite following a gluten-free diet.[53] It has been found that only 8% of adult patients with celiac disease eating a gluten-free diet reached “normalization,” where their intestines completely Cheesy Keto Gritsrecovered. However, there is new research that may help people with celiac for good! Researcher Alessio Fasano, M.D. has been on the leading edge of recent autoimmune and celiac disease exploration. In 2011, he published a paper titled “Leaky Gut and Autoimmune Diseases” which presented a new theory that suggests prevention and reversal of autoimmune disease is possible.

We all know that sugar is bad, but we mistakenly believe complex carbohydrates are healthy and we need to eat them in abundance. BUT what if I told you that “Complex carbohydrates” and “Whole Grains” are just glucose molecules hooked together in a long chain; the digestive tract breaks it down into glucose…also known as sugar. So a “complex carb” diet and a “sugary” diet are pretty much the same things.
