Modern wheat a “perfect, chronic poison,” doctor says

(CBS News) Modern wheat is a “perfect, chronic poison,” according to Dr. William Davis, a cardiologist who has published a book all about the world’s most popular grain.

Davis said that the wheat we eat these days isn’t the wheat your grandma had: “It’s an 18-inch tall plant created by genetic research in the ’60s and ’70s,” he said on “CBS This Morning.” “This thing has many new features nobody told you about, such as there’s a new protein in this thing called gliadin. It’s not gluten. I’m not addressing people with gluten sensitivities and celiac disease. I’m talking about everybody else because everybody else is susceptible to the gliadin protein that is an opiate. This thing binds into the opiate receptors in your brain and in most people stimulates appetite, such that we consume 440 more calories per day, 365 days per year.”

Asked if the farming industry could change back to the grain it formerly produced, Davis said it could, but it would not be economically feasible because it yields less per acre. However, Davis said a movement has begun with people turning away from wheat – and dropping substantial weight.

“If three people lost eight pounds, big deal,” he said. “But we’re seeing hundreds of thousands of people losing 30, 80, 150 pounds. Diabetics become no longer diabetic; people with arthritis having dramatic relief. People losing leg swelling, acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, and on and on every day.”

To avoid these wheat-oriented products, Davis suggests eating “real food,” such as avocados, olives, olive oil, meats, and vegetables. “(It’s) the stuff that is least likely to have been changed by agribusiness,” he said. “Certainly not grains. When I say grains, of course, over 90 percent of all grains we eat will be wheat, it’s not barley… or flax. It’s going to be wheat.

“It’s really a wheat issue.”

Some health resources, such as the Mayo Clinic, advocate a more balanced diet that does include wheat. But Davis said on “CTM” they’re just offering a poor alternative.

“All that literature says is to replace something bad, white enriched products with something less bad, whole grains, and there’s an apparent health benefit – ‘Let’s eat a whole bunch of less bad things.’ So I take…unfiltered cigarettes and replace with Salem filtered cigarettes, you should smoke the Salems. That’s the logic of nutrition, it’s a deeply flawed logic. What if I take it to the next level, and we say, ‘Let’s eliminate all grains,’ what happens then?

“That’s when you see, not improvements in health, that’s when you see transformations in health.”

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a system of healing which began when the ancient Chinese found that stimulating certain areas of the skin affected the functioning of specific organs of the body. The system evolved over the centuries as practitioners gained a better understanding of the connection between the skin and the organs and they refined their methods of stimulation.
In the West, acupuncture has been publicized as being helpful only for specific conditions; for example, pain or weight loss. In reality, acupuncture is based on stimulating the body’s own healing response and, therefore, it may be effective for a broad spectrum of conditions.
Who comes in for Acupuncture?

Many people come to acupuncture to alleviate a specific symptom or condition, for example:

Anxiety
Asthma
Circulatory problems
Menstrual problems
High blood pressure
Skin Conditions
Arthritis
Back pain
Depression
Migraine
Rheumatism
Sciatica

The effect of good acupuncture, however, is more than simply curing the symptom. Acupuncture directed at restoring the overall energy balance not only deals with the condition, but helps the patient feel better by promoting increased vitality, greater enjoyment of life, greater confidence, better sleep and normalized appetite.
By preventing deterioration in the balance of energy, which usually precedes the appearance of symptoms, acupuncture is also a preventative treatment, which is aimed at maintaining health on all levels.

What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy

Colon hydrotherapy (colon cleansing), sometimes called a colonic, is a
safe, hygienic way to cleanse the entire colon (large intestine). We use
an advanced Colon Hydrotherapy system, which is registered with the FDA, because
it enables the client to maintain privacy and dignity at all times.
Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle infusion of warm filtered water into
the large intestine, using no chemicals or drugs. The warm water helps
to soften, break up, then remove impacted and dehydrated fecal,
mucoid, parasitic and other waste material that layer the intestinal
walls.

• Dilutes Toxins within the
Body
• Enhances the Absorption
of Nutrients
• Minimizes Absorption of
Toxic Waste Material
• Reduces Stagnation
• Maintains Harmony of
the Intestinal Flora
• Promotes Optimal Health

 
Health Begins in the Colon
According to “The Ultimate Guide for Cleansing Your Colon, Body
Mind and Home!” by Dr. Edward F. Group III, most disease-causing
toxins enter the body through the intestines and then spread into the
bloodstream. A minor amount also enters through the skin and
respiration. These toxins come from air, food, and water, and
accumulate in the intestines, causing bowel problems as well as
diseases.

The function the intestines, meaning both small intestine and large intestine or bowels, is so important that it needs to be considered. When
the intestines are “dirty,” the liver also builds up toxins and then the
body starts manifesting symptoms ranging from aches and pains to
cancers and depression.
The reality in Western countries like the United States is that many
people only have a few bowel movements per week and the transit
time of the food averages 24 hours. This problem affects up to 20
percent of the population and explains the prevalence of laxatives,
which actually damage the bowels.

 
Colon cleansing:
• Removes the built-up matter from the intestinal lining.
• Increases the frequency of bowel movements.
• Makes stools easier to pass.
• Keeps toxins from moving into the bloodstream.
• Speeds up the time between eating and eliminating, removing
toxins more quickly from the body.
