Not so long ago, I posted that I’m done chasing the recovery of my lost ability. I’ve been seeking a way to reverse the physical decline of my body, which began 37 years ago with a bone tumor, for so long it seems to be the only thing I’ve ever done sometimes. You could call it my career. The only thing I’ve pursued longer would be spiritual growth. I’m frustrated, and tired.
However, I recently saw a video made by a former cardiac surgeon – Dr. Steven Gundry, MD. He worked at Loma Linda University Medical Center until he had an epiphany – that he was just putting bandaides on conditions. He realized he could do more good for his patients by helping them to NOT NEED surgery. Foremost on his mind was the fact that, despite doing “everything right” he himself was 75 pounds overweight and heading for cardiac trouble.
Well, he tells the story far better than I could. You can find it at http://www.thenewgutfix.com
Anyhow, after seeing that video, I shared it with my wife – and she agreed that his description of the “typical patient” with the problem he now treats – with NUTRITION alone – was a total description of how I’ve been feeling the last few years. Everything – chronic fatigue, joint pain, migraines, brain fog, memory lapses – it is all just symptoms of a leaky gut. And he’s figured out how to repair it without surgery. So, making an exception to my former declaration, we’re going to give this a shot.
Yes, “we” – my wife has several of the same symptoms, so she’s going to do the regimen with me. With a little help from the gods, perhaps we will both soon be in the best health of our lives.
