bookswheat90494273732648274_mIRSi2oE_b

I absolutely love the Underground Wellness Site and always refer legitimately interested patients there to learn about nutrition and it’s healing effects on the body.  The body never ceases to amaze mean and the way that we are all so intricately woven together from system to system makes me marvel at the body’s resilience to its mistreatment.  I wasn’t ever aware of how perfectly in tune my mind, body, and spirit all were until these last few years and I am thankful to my awakening.  I’ve played this video in follow-up to the Wheat Belly video that many of you have watched during your office visits.  I am amazed at how little it takes to cause such an uproar in the body–This one is short and worth a one time viewing.  Tom O’Bryan is like the “Gluten God” to me and Sean Croxton has many resources on his site and podcasts that are filled with incredible science, tips, and transformation stories.  Please dig deeper if you are interested at all!

Why I no longer eat beaver butt!

I’m sorry but I had to post this little tidbit that I just came across.  Sean Croxton has a great website and radio show with pod casts on eating real food!  He is also the author of a great book entitled “The Dark Side of Fat Loss” which is available to buy on his site http://www.undergroundwellness.com.  I was reading one his latest blog posts that discloses the nasty fact that raspberry and vanilla flavorings in many of our foods are derived from the anal glands of Beavers!  Upon further investigation —I found even more information on this and was totally grossed out.  Sorry the content is a little inappropriate today but I NO LONGER EAT BEAVER BUTT!
