This Is A Shocker…

“The first time I tried organic wheat bread, I thought I was chewing on roofing material” ~Robin Williams
Don’t know if you had a chance to watch The Fifth Estate last Friday, but the episode was about all the wheat and gluten controversy. They were saying that the book “Wheat Belly” had no scientific proof and that the book was flawed. Apparently there’s nothing wrong with eating wheat. Dr. William Davis, the author of the book, said he also had his doubts until the health status of more and more of his patients improved when wheat/grains were removed.
As a matter of fact, a few of the people in our home have noticed changes in how they feel when wheat is eaten or avoided. Our daughter in particular was out eating a lot of wheat this past week. Suddenly she came up to me and said, ‘Mom, I’ve been sleeping well this week, but I’ve been waking up tired. And I’ve been tired after eating too, Why?’ I didn’t know why because I didn’t know what she was doing differently. Suddenly the light bulb went on in her head and she said ‘mom, could it have been wheat, I’ve been eating it this week?’ I laughed and said ‘That would definitely explain a lot if you’ve been eating it every day!’ She’s pretty open to what we do for a living and replied with ‘You’ve gotta rebalance me this week before I go and visit them again in a few weeks.’ I guess I know what I’ll be doing in my spare time over the next few days!
So, if you also find yourself constantly tired, experiencing so-called brain fog or arthritic type pain, you may want to entertain the idea that wheat may be the root of your problem!
Here’s another shocker…
Did you know that Wheat is technically NOT genetically modified in North America?
It’s what they call, hybridized…triple the amount of chromosomes than the original wheat.
Compounded by the fact that it’s also…
Sprayed with Roundup, a toxic herbicide containing glyphosate. This chemical actually damages your intestinal tract. With current research, we now know that 70% of our immune system resides in our gut. Also many of the toxins that end up in our gut, cross the blood-brain barrior. This explains why our mental faculties are affected when we consume wheat.
Is Wheat GMO or not, you decide. Check out these sites:
