I had no idea how far we would go starting in 2004.
My daughter was hospitalized with pneumonia for the 8th time.
After staying in a children's hospital in Portland, OR for a week in a chemically induced coma we thought the solution was found. We were told she had GERD and had to be on Prevacid for the rest of her life. Then "IT" was found. The REAL solution.
She was getting all of her digestive enzymes from breast milk and not making any of her own. We used a digestive enzyme capsule in her baby food and never looked back.
The next step was when I told my wife to call for an ambulance. I never did that in my life and NEVER had such bad stomach pains. I literally thought something had exploded inside of me. During the ride to the hospital, in the back of my mind, I thought of wheat. Maybe it was a wheat allergy or intolerance. My suspicions were confirmed by an allergist. By that time I weighed about 237 lbs.
I immediately started to research all I could about environmental and food allergies. Basically doing "experiments" on myself. I would eat certain foods and purposely expose myself to environmental allergens then study and document the reactions and results. I don't recommend anyone doing this.
I gave up wheat and lost nearly 40 lbs. I have since maintained a healthier weight of 180 lbs. give or take a few here and there.
I'm glad to say that my family and I are healthy and happy. Not because of some miracle or pharmaceutical pills, but good old fashioned research, trial and error, a willingness to learn, dropping our egos and pride, and keeping an open mind. Finding out that since the early 1980s Dr. Doris Rapp has been screaming about food allergies. It wasn't until about 15 years later and huge public pressure did the medical industry finally take notice.
There are still hundreds of thousands, and perhaps millions, of children that have some kind of food and/or environmental allergy. How many children are "labeled" as:
Now look at how many of those kids eat GMO/processed wheat, sugar, milk, dairy, soy, and peanuts. How many of those kids have carpet in their houses that harbor dust mites? How many children are being abused, threatened, beaten, and bullied because of this so-called "dysfunction"? How many kids are given Pop-Tarts for breakfast. And for lunch? How does a soft pretzel and soda sound? Of course the kid is "out of control". He can't help it. He's hopped up on chemicals and allergens, throwing his body's immune system into over-drive.
But now we know. There's NOTHING "wrong" with you. You are perfectly made for maximum efficiency. Just give the machine what it needs to support that function.
