No More Gluten Problems-Guaranteed

Good nutrition is VITALLY important, not just for those with dietary restrictions but for everyone.

With statistics on obesity, diabetes and heart disease going through the roof I think everyone would agree that we are what we eat and we are eating a LOT of fat (obesity), sugar (diabetes), salt, and meat (heart disease and cancer).

What if someone gave you a pill that could guarantee that you would never have problems with gluten ever again? How much would that be worth to you?

In addition, what if that pill:

  • prevents 95 percent of all cancers including those “caused” by environmental toxins
  • prevents nearly all heart attacks and strokes
  • reverses even severe heart disease
  • prevents and reverses Type 2 diabetes so quickly and profoundly that, after three days on this drug, it’s dangerous for users to continue to use insulin

In addition the side effects are:

  • gets you to your ideal weight in a healthy and sustainable fashion
  • eliminates most migraines, acne, colds and flu, chronic pain, and intestinal distress
  • improves energy
  • cures erectile dysfunction

From an environmental standpoint this pill also:

  • slows and possibly reverses global warming
  • reduces ground water contamination
  • ends the need for deforestation
  • shuts down factory farms
  • reduces malnutrition and dislocation among the world’s poorest citizens

What would this pill be worth? $100, $1000. $1,000,000, maybe a billion dollars?

According to Dr. T. Colin Campbell (the China Study) in his newest book Whole, Rethinking the Science of Nutrition, this pill is already available to you at no cost.

 “Few medical professionals are aware that our food choices can be far more effective shields against disease than the pills they prescribe.”  –Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Whole, Rethinking the Science of Nutrition

 

Personally, Dr. Campbell is my hero, he has worked his entire life to address that problems of malnutrition, and food related disease and has received unbelievable flack from special interest groups, scientists, and corporations that have a financial interest in promoting the status quo in our nation.

We, as a nation, spend more per capita on health care than any nation in the world yet we are far from the top in the care that we receive. In fact, we are ranked near the bottom. Our diet is a joke, it’s not referred to as the Standard American Diet (SAD) for nothing. The prevalence of overweight and obese individuals increased from 13% in 1962 to a staggering 34% in 2008 according to Nancy Hellmich, “U.S. Obesity Rate Leveling Off, at One-Third of Adults,” USA Today, January 13, 2010. And, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who reports that age-adjusted Type 2 diabetes has more than doubled from 1980 to 2010 from 2.5 percent to 6.9 percent of the population. Hypertension (high blood pressure) among American adults increased 30 percent between 1997 and 2009.

What has all of this got to do with you, a person with a gluten issue? The cure, as it were, is the same for all of these diseases. A Whole Food Plant Based Lifestyle (WFPB).

Think about it–where is all of your gluten contamination lurking? In highly processed foods that are nutritionally bereft. These items are those handy vegetable packs that come with the ready-made sauce, the handy-dandy cereals, ready-made pizzas, some tomato sauces and pasta sauces, in fact almost any ready-made convenience food is loaded with gluten in one form or another. All ready-made baked goods, breads and desserts. Even the gluten-free products are usually made with white rice flour and other starches and flours that are nutritionally stripped of any and all nutrients.

Now envision another scenario. You go to the supermarket and don’t worry about anything that you pickup. Beautiful corn, kale, apples, broccoli, potatoes, sweet potatoes, whole grain quinoa, brown rice, buckwheat, nuts, seeds, beans and legumes. Even lean meats are gluten free, just not those with a coating or sauce. This is the way the good Lord intended that we eat but not the way that big business wants use to eat.

I would like to suggest that you read The China Study and Whole, Rethinking the Science of Nutrition by Dr. T. Colin Campbell or sign up for one of our workshops that promote a healthy Whole Food Plant Based lifestyle.
