William Davis MD. Best-Selling Author of Wheat Belly and Undoctored: Why HealthCare Has Failed You And How To Be Smarter Than Your Doctor. Dr. Davis was one of the first physicians to point out the many potential nasty health effects of wheat and carbs on our waistlines and our hearts.
Dr. William R. Davis is a Milwaukee-based American cardiologistknown for his health crusading stance against "modern day wheat”which he labels as "perfect, chronic poison” and also calls it Frankenwheat” – a toxic and addictive substance that makes people want to eat more, binge on junk food, and eventually ruins their cardiovascular systems and lives.
Williams says that once he discovered the power of food, he could take seriously ill heart patients and turn them around within a very short period of time, based solely on a combination of improved diet and nutraceuticals. Medical money to be made, William reminds us, is in procedures and meds. In contrast, to morph “ill” to “fully recovered” is about what we put into our mouths.
On The Dr. Oz Show, Dr. William was one of the first medical doctors to tell the American public that the wheat of today is nothing like the wheat of 1960’s or the 1950’s. Wheat has changed. It’s not the wheat our moms or grandmothers ate.
New wheat crops have implications for human health that had never been anticipated.
None of us should be eating grains. Forget the folklore that oatmeal is good for your cholesterol. The less grains, the stronger your heart. When we go off grains we hurt less, we achieve thinner waists, get energy back no matter our age, and we heal our heart tissue and basic heart cell, the all important cardiomyocyte.
Williams used to make a lot of money for the hospitals he worked for with stents and procedures and meds, all of which kept patients velcored to accept “learned helplessness”, and never really got them well. So much medicine for chronic care, keeps people ill.
Dr. Williams says that most doctors enter medicine to make the pot of money at the end of the rainbow. The status quo of medicine does not recognize diet because it doesn’t cost anything to try it. Williams feels it is not until the doctors that practice this antiquated way, die out, and make room for younger doctors that are trained and weaned on getting folks well by using food to largely do so, that we will see the change in chronic care medicine that has to take place.
