About the Author | Wheat Belly Blog

About the Author | Wheat Belly Blog | Wellness Life | Scoop.it

Who had the audacity to write such an against-the-grain book exposing “healthy whole grains” for the incredibly destructive genetic monsters they’ve become?

That’s me, Dr. William Davis, cardiologist and seeker-of-truth in health. Over 80% of the people I meet today are pre-diabetic or diabetic. In an effort to reduce blood sugar, I asked patients to remove all wheat products from their diet based on the simple fact that, with few exceptions, foods made of wheat flour raise blood sugar higher than nearly all other foods. Yes, that’s true for even whole grains. More than table sugar, more than a Snickers bar. Organic, multigrain, sprouted–it makes no difference.

Amy Melendez's insight:

T-Tapp Tips: "Putting the Organs in Place" followed by "Half Frogs" helps prevent groin injury. I have used it to rehab professional football players who already had groin injuries. Do regular abdominal crunches after "Putting the Organs in Place" and "Half Frogs" and feel how much more effective they are. I usually do 30 regular crunches with 15 cross-over crunches to each side.- Teresa Tapp

Live Like You Were Dying

Live Like You Were Dying | Wellness Life | Scoop.it
It was an odd place for deep conversation. I ran into my friend Rob in the hallway at a large Internet Marketing seminar.
Amy Melendez's insight:

"Listen, I hope you’re in the greatest of health, but I also hope that you are taking time for what really matters in your life.

 

Our minutes are not best spent surfing over to another news website, or watching another television show, or arguing on the Internet.

 

How we spend our time is the most important decision we will make in our lives. What we do with each minute of every day determines our legacy, what our children will remember, and what we will leave behind.

 

Live every day with purpose. Live every day according to your mission and your plan. Have a vision for what you want to accomplish, and act in congruence with it.

 

Love deeper, speak sweeter, and give the forgiveness you’ve been denying.

Live passionately, live honestly, and live the best life that you can."
