Undoctored: DIY Healthcare Success Stories

I am looking for personal stories that describe how you experienced a health problem, then–on your own, without the doctor–tracked a health measure such as blood sugar, blood pressure, sleep phases, etc.–then overcame/corrected this health problem yourself.

I would like to share your story (if chosen) on a national stage to help demonstrate that, if given access to information, online collaboration, and new health tools that allow us to track various measures, an individual can exert enormous personal control over health.

Some examples to illustrate:

Wheat Belly Cruise 2016: A huge success!


Now that the 2016 Wheat Belly Cruise is over, I wanted to recap how it all went for those of you who would like to consider joining us in 2017.

First of all, the food: spectacular! The Wheat Belly Cruise organizer, Paul MacInnis, and I met with executive chef, Victor, as well as several others among the nearly 160 or so culinary staff. While they were incredibly well-versed in gluten-free practices, we had to bring them up to speed on our grain-free, no-added-sugar lifestyle. They were interested and energetic, whipping up almond flour-based chocolate cake and other goodies for us, for instance.

Calling for Wheat Belly Total Health success stories!

I am putting the finishing touches on a new book that, while not called “Wheat Belly,” builds on the program provided in the Wheat Belly Total Health book. Just as Wheat Belly Total Health took the message several steps farther than the original Wheat Belly book, this new book will go even farther. But the basic principles overlap with the Total Health message, so I’d like to use your story of Wheat Belly Total Health success to support this new book.

Melissa shared her photos after just the 10 days of the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox.

“Wow! Loving this life. I have NO cravings! That’s unbelievable.

“Down 7.4 pounds and 5 inches.”

Down over 7 pounds in 10 days . . . and nobody around here is cutting calories, limiting portion sizes, or increasing exercise. We are simply avoiding obesogenic foods: wheat and grains.
