The weight gain associated with wheat consumption has little to do with caloric content; rather, the gluten proteins. They disrupt the endocrine and exocrine processes within the body. Made to alter mamalian metabolism in the direction of weight gain.
Modern Day Wheat and Your Belly
Negative reports on wheat and other grains have risen considerably in the past decade. The dramatic rise of celiac disease, a chronic gut inflammation that destroys intestinal villi (tiny tubes) responsible for absorbing nutrients, has been a major focus.

The gluten toxicity that brings on Celiac disease and other autoimmune reactions is mostly from peptides contained in gluten known as gliadin proteins, which damage the intestinal tract.

In addition to Celiac disease, which if undetected leads to malnutrition that creates other diseases, gluten toxicity can result in several other manifestations of poor health, including chronic fatigue and mental disorders.

Lectins, sticky proteins common to all plants for self defense, are a prominent feature of wheat germ agglutinin (WGA). In addition to flattening out intestinal villi and causing Celiac, they can penetrate gut linings and create leaky gut.

Once lectins get into the blood stream, they can bind to leptin receptors, blocking the leptin sensitivity that lets you know you've had enough to eat, creating a sluggish metabolism, and disrupting insulin balance. In other words, it leads to obesity and diabetes.
Wheat Belly
At his wit’s end because of his severe reactions to eating wheat, William Davis, MD decided to become the guinea pig in a simple experiment. The question was whether his body would react differently to bread baked from modern organic whole wheat or to bread baked from einkorn, the first cultivated wheat and an original source of our current crop of 100,000 modern wheat varieties.

From wheat kernels found in tombs near the Sea of Galilee, we know that humans have been eating the hard-hulled einkorn unchanged for nearly 6,000 years. We have also been crossbreeding wheat and grasses for almost as long. Compared to einkorn, which now is mostly raised for animals, the whole wheat we buy today tends to have stronger and shorter supporting straws, larger kernels, and dramatically higher yields. These huge advancements have put wheat (breads, cereal, and pasta) at the base of the American food pyramid, and we are told to eat six to eleven servings each day.

Davis’s plan was to eat four ounces of einkorn bread on one day and four ounces of organic whole wheat bread the next. To begin, he hand-ground two pounds of the einkorn into flour and made a simple dough with water and yeast. He describes the einkorn dough as stickier and less stretchy than any he had seen before. It barely rose after a period of proofing. After baking, Davis nervously prepared for his first bite, but the nutty, denser bread caused him no problems — and a blood sugar test revealed only a modest rise from 84 mg/dl to 110 mg/dl, similar to consuming any carbohydrate. In his new book, Wheat Belly, he writes, “Afterwards … I felt no perceptible effects — no sleepiness, no nausea, nothing hurt. In short, I felt fine. Whew!”

The next day he baked a loaf of modern organic whole wheat bread and repeated the experiment. Before eating the four ounces, his blood sugar registered the same 84 mg/dl; afterward, it spiked to 167 mg/dl. “Moreover, I soon became nauseated, nearly losing my lunch. The queasy effect persisted for thirty-six hours, accompanied by stomach cramps that started almost immediately and lasted for many hours. Sleep that night was fitful, though filled with vivid dreams. I couldn’t think straight, nor could I understand the research papers I was trying to read the next morning, having to read and reread paragraphs four or five times; I finally gave up.”

So how did wheat, "the staff of life," become a weed of disease

For starters, wheat is not the same today. It has been hybrid (sic) over time to resist fungus, grow more quickly, and be more pliable for industrial bread baking. 50 years or so ago, wheat contained only five percent gluten. Today, it is 50 percent gluten.
The Begetting of Modern Wheat
Back in Neolithic times, einkorn was mated with another wheat and begat emmer, another wheat found in ancient tombs and still available in modern health food stores. (In fact, emmer is prized in places like Tuscany, where it’s raised under the name farro.) A big difference between einkorn and its progeny is that einkorn has 14 chromosomes and emmer has 28. Then emmer was mated with goat grass, which has 14 chromosomes and, more important, unique glutenin genes. The progeny of emmer and goat grass was essentially modern wheat, which has 42 chromosones and the gluten that makes modern bread chewy, elastic, and shapely.

Over the following decades, thousands of new varieties were created to dramatically increase yields. According to World Wheat Facts and Trends, yields in China, now the world’s largest producer, have increased from eight to sixty-five bushels per acre. Some of these advances are attributable to nitrogen-rich fertilizers but also to the development of high-yielding dwarf wheat, with a large head and shorter, stouter straw, sturdy enough to support the extra weight without buckling. Some recent estimates have dwarf and semi-dwarf wheat comprising as much as 99 percent of all wheat worldwide.
How it Works
Carbohydrates that break down quickly during digestion, such as wheat, release glucose rapidly into the bloodstream, which triggers a release of insulin from the pancreas to move the sugar into cells. Over time, spikes of blood sugar and insulin lead to insulin resistance and ultimately to diabetes, heart and other problems.

Davis also says that these blood sugar and insulin spikes from wheat also trigger the growth of an insidious kind of fat called visceral fat, which accumulates in the liver, kidneys, pancreas, large and small intestines, heart, and the abdomen — hence the name wheat belly.
From Dr. William Davis and his Book "Loose the Wheat, Loose the Weight"
Article from Red Ice Radio:
Dr. William Davis, cardiologist exposes "healthy whole grains" for the incredibly destructive genetic monsters they've become. Over 80% of the people he meets today are pre-diabetic or diabetic. In an effort to reduce blood sugar, he asked patients to remove all wheat products from their diet based on the simple fact that foods made of wheat flour raise blood sugar higher than nearly all other foods, regardless if the wheat is organic, multi-grain, whole grain or sprouted. The results were positively drastic. Dr. Davis discusses the benefits of going wheat free, and covers genetic changes of wheat verses ancient grains. He explains how modern wheat is an opiate and appetite stimulant. William also breaks down the internal components of wheat and how they interact with the body in negative ways linked to a slew of health problems. He also explains the great lie of gluten free bread. Why aren't doctors giving this important research any attention?
Natural Yeast

Do you all know that the modern yeast available in the grocery store is not a completely natural whole food? Yes, there is a whole foods version of yeast, it is natural yeast that you can make at home.

From Caleb Warnock co-author of “The Art of Baking with Natural Yeast” Natural yeast flattens the glycemic index, takes away heartburn and acid reflux forever, helps prevent or reverse gluten intolerance and, in some cases, full-blown Celiac’s disease, turns natural phytic acid into an anti-oxidant, controls allergies, and turns flour into a yeast that is both pre-biotic and pro-biotic. Natural yeast is healthful and free.

Rev up Your  Circulation, Health and Cleanse your Body of Unwanted Toxins
The chemical toxins we encounter in our culture get backed up in our liver. Keeping your liver healthy is one of the biggest keys to radiant health and longevity. We know the liver purifies blood and converts carbs to energy. Did you know it’s also one of the main issues when dealing with hormonal imbalance?

Read below to choose which essential oil blends help detox, flush and protect your liver from petrochemicals. We’ll also look at which essential oils and supplements help cleanse the intestines, kidneys, colon, lymph and skin.

Our emotions also play a role in toxicity. Stress and suppressed emotions take their toll on our immune system. Read which essential oils can help balance your emotions before, during, and after your cleanse!

Skin and Internal Organ Detox Blend

This formula can rid the body of thousands of poisons and toxins, reduce inflammation and flush out gall stones.

Natural Remedy for Allergies, Flu, Asthma, and Other Illnesses - Elderberry Syrup

Sambucus was shown to be effective in vitro against 10 strains of influenza virus. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study, Sambucus reduced the duration of flu symptoms to 3-4 days.

A significant improvement of the symptoms, including fever, was seen in 93.3% of the cases in the SAM-treated group within 2 days, whereas in the control group 91.7% of the patients showed an improvement within 6 days. A complete cure was achieved within 2 to 3 days in nearly 90% of the SAM-treated group and within at least 6 days in the placebo group.

Interestingly, elderberry has been shown to have anti-bacterial properties, including against a couple of strains of strep bacteria (including Streptococcus pyogenes, which is responsible for many strep throat infections).  That study also notes that elderberry may be useful in preventing complications of viral illnesses, like bacterial pneumonia, and because its protection is “non-specific,” infections would not become resistant to it as they do to antibiotics.

1/2 cup dried elderberries
3 cups water
1 cup local or raw honey (I chose local to get the allergy relief benefits)
2/3 cup raw organic apple cider vinegar ACV

Fill a pot with water and dried elderberries. Bring to a boil and let boil for 30 minutes. Take off heat and mash elderberries up well (I used a potato masher). Strain out the liquid into a separate bowl using cheese cloth, coffee filter, or something similar. Once strained add honey to the elderberry liquid and stir well. Then add ACV. Place in a jar and put in the fridge for up to 6 months.

Anti-Bloat Drink
Drink water flavored with lemon, lime, or cucumber. A few studies suggest that peppermint tea, ginger, pineapple, parsley, and yogurts containing probiotics ("good" bacteria) may help reduce bloating.

Combine your favorite ingredients and make a drink to sip on all day. Here is an example of an anti-bloat drink;

  • 1 Tbsp Turmeric
  • 1Tbsp Ginger powder or fresh ginger slices
  • 1/2-1 tsp Cayenne (depending on how much heat you can handle)
  • 5 Tbsp lemon juice from fresh lemons
  • optional Stevia to taste
  • 32 oz. warm water


  1. Boil 32 ounces of water in a tea kettle, once it boils remove it from heat and set it aside.
  2. Add spices and lemon juice to a pitcher or container that holds at least 32 ounces of water.  Once the water has cooled a bit( you don’t want to add boiling water into the mixture, this will breakdown some of the benefits of the lemon) add it to the pitcher.  Give the mixture a good stir and sip on it throughout the day.  As the magic potion sits the spices will fall to the bottom, you can stir it each time your pour yourself more, and always add some more warm water if it gets too spicy for you.  Add stevia to sweeten it if necessary.
I make this mixture and sip on it for 5-7 days.  I feel so light and healthy while I am drinking it so I don’t want to stop!

Natural Recipes that Kill Household Mold
There’s no denying that household mold and mildew can be dangerous to our health. In fact, it has been proven to promote asthma, allergies, and colds. Likewise, it is thought to increase the occurrence of mood swings and depression.

A therapeutic essential oil blend of cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus, lemon & rosemary essential oils known as "X Plague Blend" is an immune system booster, natural antibacterial, antifungal agent that kills toxic mold.

This recipe is highly antimicrobial. When tested at Weber State University, it was found to have a 99.96% kill rate against airborne bacteria. It also carries a frequency of 150 Mhz.

If you have mold and mildew in your home then forget using the store bought items that are packed full of chemicals, and instead try these five natural fixes – including:

Natural Recipes that Kill Household Mold

When mold is present and you need to kill it, here are a few tried and true remedies:

X Plague Spray
To make this spray, simply mix 1 teaspoon of X Plague per 1 cup of water. Load mixture into a spray bottle, shake well to combine, and spray directly on to areas of mold. Do NOT rinse.

For tough spots apply directly on problem mold, leave on Do Not Rinse.

Tea Tree Spray
*Tea tree oil is one of the best ways to kill mold naturally.

To make this spray, simply mix 1 teaspoon of tea tree oil per 1 cup of water. Load mixture into a spray bottle, shake well to combine, and spray directly on to areas of mold. Do NOT rinse. 


After cleaning the mold with a mixture of castile soap and hot water. Spray a generous amount of straight white vinegar on to the problem areas. In the shower, I keep a spray bottle full of vinegar to spray on the tub and tile after each use. Works like a charm in the prevention department! 

Grapefruit Seed Extract Spray

In a spray bottle combine 20 drops of grapefruit seed extract and 1 cup of water. Shake well to combine. Spray the problem areas. Do NOT rinse and allow to dry. 

Hydrogen Peroxide Spray

Mix 1 part 3% hydrogen peroxide and 2 parts water. Spray directly on to mold and allow it to dry. Note: Be sure only to make as large a batch as you will need for one application at a time.
Caution: test fabric before use, it may bleach out.
