Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health
Description: Dr. William Davis's research goes into great detail about why wheat food products today destroy your health.

Eliminating wheat yielded results beyond everyone's expectations: substantial weight loss, correction of cholesterol abnormalities, relief from inflammatory diseases like arthritis, emotional stability, prevention of heart disease as well as many more health benefits. An excellent read!

She was so fascinated by this kind of remission that she embarked on a ten month trip around the world, traveling to ten different countries to interview fifty holistic healers and twenty radical remission cancer survivors about their healing practices and techniques. Her research continued by interviewing over 100 Radical Remission survivors and studying over 1000 of these cases. Her evidence presents nine common themes that she believes may help even terminal patients turn their lives around.
