Testimony of the Day
“I had allergy induced asthma for nearly 10 years and went to numerous doctors and pulmonology specialist. I would cough from post nasal drip for months of the year… I was put on prednisone and multiple mess and inhalers… The very week I started your well formulated wheat free low carb diet my symptoms improved. After three weeks NO MEDS needed at all! This was a year ago, and I have never felt better!”
Another Asthma Testimony
“My family started eating your plan. My youngest son who is almost 4 has battled the asthma cough and drip up until we changed our diet. Recently, let him have regular pizza at a party. Since then, it’s been cough cough cough, runny nose drip drip drip. Ugh!! Day 6 I saw an improvement and day 7 he finally lost the cough. It is amazing what eating the “Maria” way can do, even for youngsters!”
