Living the Wheat Belly and Undoctored lifestyle will not rid our lives of all adversity. But it can make you stronger, more optimistic, and resilient. Here is Lonnie and Carrie’s story:
“One year ago today, my life changed in unthinkable ways. I discovered the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox book and read it during my kids’ spring break. I had dabbled in the ‘paleo’ diet world a bit over the last five years with inconsistent success and had some idea about how good I felt when eliminating grains…
“But the protocols in this book seemed to go further then just diet, like addressing vitamin, nutrient, hormone, and gut flora deficiencies from living our modern lifestyles and eating the ‘civilized’ diet. I knew deep down that if nothing else I needed to try this detox for 10 days, and asked my wife to begin this journey with me…
“We decided to start on a Friday so that we had the weekend to deal with the detox symptoms (which honestly was not that difficult for us). We made it through the first 5 days, and by day 6 I felt like a completely different person!!! Better sleep, much more energy, and an almost euphoric feeling that I cannot describe. This feeling continued for days, then weeks, then months. The weight poured off of us with little physical effort (over 80 lbs between us, 40+ each). Brain fog was gone. Aches and pains disappeared. Food tasted better. We received countless compliments about how much younger we looked. But there’s much more . . .
“Given our present circumstances, immune function is on all of our minds. My wife and I have not gotten sick in the last year. We had influenza A, stomach viruses, sore throats, and colds come through our house from our kids who are in school, and we did not get any of it. No flu shot. No need for over the counter meds. No antibiotics. We’ve stayed healthy and I have zero doubts that it’s due to the Wheat Belly lifestyle.
“But the most important positive change in our lives has been our moods, feelings of well being, and ability to handle our grief that we’ve had shadowing us for almost a decade. We lost our son Bryce on 10/10/10 and have been struggling bereaved parents ever since. We’ve gone through periods of deep depression and even suicidal ideation over the years. But since changing our diets and lives through this lifestyle, we’ve been better able to move through our grief and deal with our day to day pain that at times felt impossible. Our moods, emotional coping abilities, and gratitude for being alive have increased tenfold. It’s difficult to put into words really, but it’s true. I cannot begin to thank Dr. Davis enough for this…
“I am currently enrolled in the Undoctored U Program and I look forward to helping others thrive and heal as I have.
“If you have found this page and Dr. Davis’s books, YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!!! Lean on this community. Lean on each other. Stick with this, you will never regret it!!!
“Stay healthy and well all.
Lonnie & Carrie”
