No Pain – No Grains
A Radical Wheat-Ectomy
It may come as quite a shock, but the ‘good healthy grains’ that you have been encouraged to eat are anything but good and healthy for you.
In this section of the site, we explore of the issues with regard to the impact of grains on our diet and the massive problems they cause.
With out exaggeration, the removal of grains – and in particular wheat and gluten – is the single biggest modification you can make to improve your health and speed up your recovery. Assuming you don’t do something galactically stupid like smoke, take drugs or drink soft drink.
As upsetting as this concept is – You really need to under go a ‘Radical Wheat-ectomy’.
It usually takes about 2 to 3 months to get your head around this proposition. Initially your stomach will think your throat has been cut.
But – it is worth the effort.
It does not matter whether you have been ‘diagnosed’ as a celiac or not – get off the wheat!
The worse your back pain, the more inflamed you are, the more reflux, the more stomach upsets or bowel troubles, or the more over weight you are – the more you should cut out your grains.
And cutting out the wheat or gluten does not mean eating ‘gluten free’ foods.
Gluten free foods are just reinventing new ways of eating the same food we should not be eating.
