Become Your Own Health Advocate and Change Your Life

WOW! The American people have strongly spoken for change in the United States with the election of Donald Trump.

You, too, can speak up for change in your own health and wellness!

Unfortunately, in too many cases, it is necessary to become an advocate for your own health. Over 300 symptoms, diseases, and associated conditions are linked to gluten by thousands (over 15,000) of research studies from around the world. Very little is being put forth to educate our doctors on the many hazards of consuming gluten. It appears the researchers are all on one side of the river and no bridge has been erected to connect to our doctors. Many alternative and more holistic practitioners are a bit more educated on gluten, but vast unawareness still exists in many facets of medicine.

Did you know:

  • Too many doctors still think celiac disease is only a childhood disease
  • Too many doctors think celiac is only a gastrointestinal issue
  • Celiac disease can affect any part of your body, at any age, and can affect multiple bodily systems
  • Too many doctors have no idea that many gastrointestinal issues can get better once the irritating protein is recognized and addressed
  • Many cancers and autoimmune diseases, neurological, skin, and organ ailments are linked to gluten
  • You need to REQUEST certain blood tests or it’s very likely you will only be offered one test for celiac (that one test has a high rate of false negatives and does not detect intolerance to gluten which affects many more folks)
  • Testing negative for celiac disease does not negate gluten intolerance
  • Few doctors know of the very sensitive stool testing that saved my family

If you or a loved one has most any chronic ailment or illness please do your body and brain a favor and get educated on gluten before your life becomes worse.

Testing information to detect celiac or gluten intolerance is spelled out in my award-winning, life-transforming Toxic Staple as only a driven grandmother could.

Mainstream medicine has shifted over the decades from concern for the patient’s wellness to more interest in “controlling” and “managing” your disease with drugs instead of trying to determine the bottom-line as to what’s making you sick.

Realize that you do have control over much of your health.

I can’t imagine what shape my family or I would be in if we hadn’t discovered gluten was eroding our health, on so many levels. We are all going to meet our Maker, but some of us are going to have an easier and I expect longer ride.

Thanks at Thanksgiving…and All Year

As we approach this Thanksgiving Day and holiday season many of us think a little more about giving thanks for all that we cherish: our family and friends, our freedom, and our good health, among many others. I especially am thankful everyday for the excellent health my family and I enjoy. Had we not discovered we were all quite intolerant to gluten we would not have been such happy campers these last 12 years.

Knowing what I know about the devastating and degenerative hazards of gluten from having poured a decade into research and writing my award-winning book, “Toxic Staple” I can’t imagine what shape my family and I would be in if we hadn’t figured this monster out. I am fortunate to only be on one med for a hypothyroid that was very likely damaged due to gluten (autoimmune diseases are highly linked to gluten) before I even knew what gluten was, and I never get sick, and have great energy.

Many of you, however, do not bask in the sunlight of good health and great energy and may not realize that much of your poor state of health lies in your own hands. Most of you really can do something about your allergies, asthma, fatigue, autoimmune diseases, skin issues, neurological maladies, and on and on, if you want to. Naturally everything is not linked to gluten, but truly, it is incredible what gets better when you address this “toxic staple” that pervades our everyday lives and destroys your gut and other parts of the body.

Going downhill at the rate I was traveling prior to “the gluten-free lifestyle” in my early sixties, I can only assume that my longevity has been extended vastly, along with greater health, and rejuvenated energy and vitality.

I encourage you to look at your health and that of your children and other family members and friends. Many of you think it is normal to have intestinal issues, fatigue, allergies, asthma, arthritis, organ issues, migraines, depression, and on and on for more than over 300 maladies linked to gluten, but it is not. Older age does not necessarily have to mean degenerative, failing health. Your health and life can become so much more enhanced and transformed that you would not believe it. I am in better shape in my seventies than when I was in my forties. No kidding! All I did was remove the “monster” gluten (dairy also bothers many who are gluten intolerant). By the end of the first year I was only going for health checkups instead of sick calls.

But let me warn you that the vast majority of our traditionally trained doctors are not giving enough testing to track down celiac disease or gluten intolerance, nor are they aware of the numerous symptoms and illnesses linked to gluten. It’s not really their fault. Little is being done to educate every health care professional in every facet of medicine, since gluten can affect any part of the body, and many think celiac and gluten issues are rare. They are epidemic!

If you are plagued with chronic symptoms and illness please…do your body and brain a favor… you must become your own advocate in conjunction with your doctor. Get educated, get tested (you will need to request certain tests), and if positive follow a 100% gluten-free lifestyle. No cheating!

 And give mega thanks you have discovered the root of your health problems.

Poem: A Healthy Start

I was inspired to write this jingle after meeting a family who no doubt would benefit from reading Toxic Staple since most of them had gut issues and were getting nowhere with their doctors. Unfortunately I got her contact info wrong, so if this mom recognizes herself in this poem, please get back to me through my site. We met at Logan Airport.

A Healthy Start

I talk to everyone
To introduce my book
I encourage sick and tired folks
To take a deeper look

At Logan on our way
To warmth in the glorious sun
I met a handsome family
Whose health was being undone

Amazed, the mom said to me
“So funny we should meet
As we got out of the car
We discussed gluten and wheat”

Mom thought her teenaged son
Might have dreaded IBS
And wondered if gluten had
Created his intestinal distress

She questioned if she too
Had a tricky gut issue
As she had intestinal complaints
She needed to subdue

Her daughter she strongly felt
Might have the problem too
And was ready to devour my book
And all the info she could accrue

To the busy ticket counter
They soon did arrive
Now armed with a book
To help her family survive

Off they happily went
Into the glorious sun
If gluten is their problem
Their ailments can be undone

I tell most everyone I met
The GF lifestyle is forever
If intolerant to gluten
You must eat it…never… ever

To be sensitive to gluten
And not address its effect
Could lead to many ailments
And lives being totally wrecked

Dear reader of this rhyme
What you may not know
Gluten can crimp your life
And deliver an unhealthy blow

So read Toxic Staple
Take my book to heart
This life-transforming info
Will give you a healthy start.

Poem: A Degenerative Conduit

Over the last several years I’ve written many poems on the hazards of gluten with hopes the reader will become motivated and empowered to really look at their symptoms and diseases and face up to the fact that they may well be linked to gluten. Ignoring them may make matters worse over time.

My book, Toxic Staple, goes above and beyond testing information, both blood and stool, to help you, along with your doctor, track down the insidious gluten intolerance or celiac disease…even if you already tested negative for celiac.

A Degenerative Conduit

Been feeling a health deficit?
Energy level is quite unfit?
Any part of the body it can hit
It is a degenerative conduit
For illness

Been living in “discomfit”
You think it’s a passing skit
But the symptoms never quit
You’re on an endless circuit
Of unwellness

Before your final exit
Your life may need an edit
You must come to admit it
If you relish a healthy benefit
From decrepit decline

Adopt a new lifestyle spirit
To which you fully commit
The GF diet is legit
You’re in the cockpit
To recapture health

Your body needs lifetime respite
From gluten you must omit
Let me be most explicit
On the GFD you must git
To renew your health

Keep a focused wit
Your strength has no limit
Allow yourself to commit
With a GFD good health is implicit
Believe in yourself

Is The Gluten-Free Diet Just Another Fad? Absolutely Not!

The gluten-free diet has become a fad, but it is definitely not just another fad.

It’s no wonder all the gluten-free faddists feel better, lose weight, have more energy, headaches and skin problems disappear, intestinal issues subside, reflux and PMS get better, etc. My take is this: if you have chronic or troublesome health issues that get better with a gluten-free lifestyle, you are most likely gluten-sensitive to some degree. You are somewhere on the path or continuum of having a gluten problem. Of course you feel better when you remove the toxic staple, gluten.

But there is a problem just trying the gluten-free diet. I named my book Toxic Staple for a very good reason: gluten is at the root of huge illness. There are thousands of studies from around the world linking gluten to major ill health. So it’s important to get tested to see the results in black and white. It really helps one stay on the GF diet if intolerant, but to do the blood tests you need to keep eating gluten. If you just think you are a little sensitive and don’t fully comprehend the implications of being intolerant or having celiac disease, you may have the temptation to cheat. No, a little bit of gluten is not ok if you are intolerant or have celiac disease.

Gluten is a toxic protein for a huge part of the population (about 30%). It slowly whittles your health away and devastating, degenerative disease may not appear until years or decades later when your body has become quite compromised. That’s why it’s so important to get tested. Find out if this insidious monster is lurking in your closet before more serious issues manifest. If so, then face the GF lifestyle with an A+ attitude and see how your health, energy, and vitality may change. You deserve a healthier and stronger life, and your family needs you to be healthy.

Not Enough Testing!

dreamstimefree_164004Until there are mandated conferences for doctors in all facets of medicine (dream on), since gluten can affect any part of the body, you may need to become your own health-seeking advocate. You need to know the blood tests to REQUEST. All too often not enough testing is given to detect celiac disease or gluten intolerance and the patient is told she/he doesn’t have a problem, can still eat gluten, and meanwhile is still having troublesome health issues.

TOXIC STAPLE will provide testing information that will very likely detect a gluten issue if there is one. Sorry, but the one blood test often given may be negative and the patient may be quite gluten sensitive. By the time you test positive on the one blood test you most likely have full-blown celiac disease with very damaged villi and a very compromised body. Even if the panel of four blood tests is given you may still test negative, but be quite gluten intolerant.

This is when it would behoove you to read and “absorb” the stool testing information in Chapter 17. This testing saved my family, as we were all negative on the blood tests except for the baby (not old enough to test), and one grandchild with full-blown CD.

The book will empower you with the knowledge to get to the bottom of what’s ailing you or a loved one, if gluten sensitive, to find greater health, energy, and vitality just as my family and I have. It is not rocket science. It is about removing the toxic staple that is making you sick and tired, and jeopardizing your health in a myriad ways!

Although I wrote the book for the masses that are so sick and tired of being sick and tired, or misdiagnosed, undiagnosed, or over-dosed, it is being recommended for health care practitioners by medical professionals up on gluten. So please do consider loaning a copy to your doctor.
