It all comes back to inflammation. – Dr. Perlmutter
I have never had a problem with wheat (or any food for that matter) but ever since my late 20s I have suffered from arthritis. Doctors put me on Naproxen and I’ve taken that or Nabumatone for 30 years.
At this stage in my life, I’ve decided I want to lose some weight. Now that I’m menopausal, I was put on a strict program by a nutritionist. This program had no grains (or non-fruit sugars) at all for the first 2 months. After about 2 weeks I was forgetting to take the anti-inflammatory meds since I didn’t feel the pain that usually indicated I needed them. After 30 days, I was practically pain-free.
I was reminded that before my brain tumor surgery my doctor told me that my inflammatory markers were through the roof. I went back in to be tested after this and they were normal. All those years of suffering and medications! I lost 30 pounds in 4 months and feel like I’m 15 years younger.
