If you have a health problem, I URGE you to read this book- today!! AND follow the recommendations.
To your health,
Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune System Queen
I rarely ate grains, because they made me gain weight; and the only time I ate them regularly was for a month in 1986 - and I wound up with arthritis symptoms; excruciating pain in my arms and shoulders; couldn't lift my arms above my shoulder level; and horrific pain in my joints, too. Being into health research - I didn't take medication.
I looked back in my food journal - and immediately stopped the grains.
Within two weeks the pain was gone. Three months later, as an experiment I added them back. In two weeks the same unbearable pain returned. So, I stopped using grains for good. At 73 I am still gluten-free & pain-free.
As a health researcher (46 years duration) - I found Dr. James Braly's Dangerous Grains - very worthwhile. It is a "must-read" for every family who is interested in health.
Information is very clearly and understandably presented in an easily readable format. Definitely recommend this one for anyone interested in health, nutrition, or the question of eating grains more specifically.
I didn't know that she had ordered a blood test for gluten sensitivity but I had already started going gluten free about 4 days before my appointment on my own after having a bad experience at a friend's home where I had been invited for a pasta supper. Within minutes after ingesting a little pasta and a bite of garlic bread, my stomach felt like it was going to blow up and I was very uncomfortable.
I am 71 years old and had no idea I was gluten sensitive until that supper.
Within two weeks, I went from 154 lbs. to 138 and my energy was back.
I bought this book and it has really helped me understand more clearly about the gluten issue. I wish I had known about the gluten problem earlier and possibly could have avoided the various health issues I have been coping with over the years. I suggest that if anyone is coping with various health problems, read this book and try going gluten free for a few weeks and see what happens. Who knows, gluten just might be your poison too.
