Jeanine shared the results of following the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox, now 18 days into the program.

“18 days, 7.2 lbs down and I am feeling great! All my symptoms that I had before like bloating, rashes, sinus issues, IBS are gone! I can tell the inflammation in my face has changed in this pic.

“This group was very big in my success, thank you!”

Despite the different lighting in the photos, you can see how the shape of Jeanine’s face had changed, as we so often see on the Wheat Belly lifestyle. In just over two weeks, Jeanine’s skin and body have reversed inflammation and edema (water retention), as well as the rashes she describes. Being relieved from bloating and IBS symptoms suggests reversal of gastrointestinal irritation/inflammation, and relief from sinus issues suggests reversal of airway inflammation.

Just think of how inflammation is “treated” by conventional medicine: diuretics for water retention, acid blocking H2 blockers and proton pump inhibitors for stomach inflammation, antispasm and anti-diarrheal agents for intestinal irritation/inflammation, steroid and adrenaline-like (beta agonist) inhalers for sinus congestion . . . none of which address the underlying cause.

What side-effects accompany the Wheat Belly lifestyle? After the initial opiate withdrawal symptoms are over, side-effects include weight loss, increased energy, freedom from migraines, drops in blood sugar and blood pressure, mental clarity, reduction in appetite, and many others. Unlike prescription drugs to treat inflammation, there will be no potassium depletion and sudden cardiac death (diuretics); dysbiosis, osteoporosis, and vitamin B12 deficiency (H2 blockers and proton pump inhibitors); or dry mouth, nervousness, dizziness, and blurred vision (anti-spasm agents). The Wheat Belly lifestyle also costs virtually nothing after the initial costs required to restock your kitchen with non-grain foods, even resulting in modest cost savings when the entire family engages in this lifestyle (due to reduced calorie intake).

By engaging in the Wheat Belly Detox and now the long-term Wheat Belly strategies, she has changed the course of her life. Not only does she look different, but the future course of her health will be entirely different, freed from the great majority of chronic health conditions that plague grain-consuming people.
