From Wheat Belly to Grain Brain to Grain Gonads

OK, low gluten fans (like pretty much everyone should be), after you read Wheat Belly by William Davis, MD you'll peruse Grain Brain by David Perlmutter, MD.  With so much information about the evils of grains you trade them and most sugars for nuts and seeds. You also eat some prebiotics and probiotics and fermented foods and feel better and better.  Your migraines, brain fog, insomnia, irritable bowel and myalgias disappear.  What about your polycystic ovary syndrome?  It should reverse also.  Anything else?

How about low testosterone?  Yes, Low T can be grain driven.
It's easy to remember the PCOS as a grain driven entity.  I choose to remember the gender unbiased nature of the effects of grains with the term "Grain Gonads".

We're seeing more 30-40 year old males with Low T as a result of Grain Gonads.  Dr. Davis refers to the Low T and ED (erectile dysfunction) in Wheat Belly.

Just call it Grain Gonads.  Lose the wheat, lose the weight.  Lose the wheat, help your gonadal functions.

What do you think?

  1. It's working for me. I was an overweight, pre-dietetic, low-T skeptic. Then I turned 65 in June and things went south from there with severe endema, foot/leg swelling, pain, and inflammation of joints. Blood tests revealed that I had moved to dietetic levels. After hearing Dr. J spew the benefits of Wheat Belly for the last 2 years, I decided it was TIME TO GET SERIOUS ...
    With the help of my wife, aka food police, I have taken sugar and most wheat, corn and grains out of my diet. In just over 8 weeks since mid-June 2015, I have lost 20lbs. My blood sugars are under control without drugs. The endema and joint pain are gone. And I feel great. During that journey we were able to meet the challenges of a Boundry Waters Canoe Trip in Northern, MN. Life-style changes are tough. Diets are tough, but I'm now tougher and life is good. I'm going to keep it that way. I owe it all to GOD, Dr. J, and my wife. Thank you!
