Web Launch, Trauma and Wheat Belly


I hereby launch my website: Journey Through Change, via my blog. My website is aimed at any and all who travel through life. Welcome! Visit! Read! Email me! I'd love to hear from you!

Big "thankyou" to Larry who developed and implemented my site - it's so much more than I imagined!

Samuel Hahnemann, the German doctor and founder of homeopathy over 200 years ago, has a birthday in April; homeopaths around the world celebrate the month by offering talks and displays of things homeopathic, meet-and-greets, and discounts on their services. I am coming to realize that I will be doing a talk on Homeopathy for Trauma and Disasters, which is this year's theme. An animal lover at the local pet store suggested I charge a small admission fee and donate the proceeds to the town's emergency animal shelter. What a great idea! "Trauma"..."Emergency"...a perfect combination. We do love to donate to good causes and most of us do love our critters. Trauma remedies are the same for the two-legged and the four-legged. Only the administration may be different, perhaps a little more challenging sometimes with the critters. Trauma is where homeopathy really shines - where you can see pain eased within minutes and you know that healing has begun. Some remedies of note for trauma are: Arnica, Aconite, Opium, Carbo Vegetabilis and Calendula.

I've been reading Wheat Belly by William Davis MD and I can't help but want to pass his good news on to friends and clients who suffer with gas, bloating, indigestion; or with hot flashes; or with weight gain or joint pain; or with a pre-diabetic condition; or with any number of inflammatory conditions. The 'news' of the book for me (because I stopped eating wheat in all its forms two years ago, because it didn't serve me well but I didn't know why) is that wheat, in its present, genetically over-modified form contains an addictive substance in its gluten (the 'gliadin' protein). This substance binds to the opiate receptors of the brain and makes us feel good (?) for a while. This substance is an appetite stimulant - it keeps us coming back for more food, sometimes every two hours. But take away wheat from the diet and those cravings, that awful hunger, soon disappear. Liberation! Davis as a cardiologist has worked with thousands of diseased patients and sees healthy outcomes when people completely eliminate wheat and grain (not just gluten) from their diets. Wheat is our "staple" our "staff of life" our "healthy whole grain", recommended by the 'experts'. But it seems to be not what we believe it to be. Surprise! I can't do full justice to this book here. Find out for yourself.
