Is it really Gluten?
The most essential place to start when searching for answers regarding the body’s imbalances is our food.I do not advocate counting calories, cutting out white food products, or weighing in everyday.Just simply look at how the food was grown, where the food is grown, who tended to it, and how it was processed before it entered your mouth. In this day and age we have gotten in the habit of believing we do not have the time to pay attention to our food sources.Food is meant to nourish and replenish the body. If you are putting a food product full of chemicals and void of nutrients into your body, you have to EXPEND energy to eliminate the “food” rather than gather energy from it. It is that simple.I have heard so many times “Well, I have eaten this way all my life and never had a problem until now”. If your body is sick to the point of attention, it has most likely been chatting with you for years. Fortunately, your body is now screaming out to you and you have not other choice but to listen.Your body communicates through emotions and physical discomfort, and 99% of the time the solution lies in your daily habits, both in your internal and external environment.So let’s start with Food. You DO have the Time.A renowned cardiologist William Davis explains how eliminating wheat from our diets can prevent fat storage, shrink unsightly bulges, and reverse myriad health problems.Women store excess estrogen in fat cells.Every day, over 200 million North Americans consume food products made of wheat. As a result, over 100 million of them experience some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes and high blood sugar to the unattractive stomach bulges to moodiness , that preventive cardiologist William Davis calls “wheat bellies.”I suggest reading Wheat Belly, by William Davis MD. It is an excellent foundational tool in being mindful of our food environment.
