Dr. William Davis

Author of the number one best seller, Wheat Belly and his new book Undoctored: Why Health Care Has Failed You and How You Can Become Smarter Than Your Doctor

In Dr. Davis’ journey since Wheat Belly came out he has met hundreds and hundreds of people who were plagued with chronic health problems like diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and arthritis whom the healthcare system had utterly failed. These are people he met in person at Wheat Belly events and through his website where he publishes their stories on a regular basis. What these people all have in common is that they decided to take their health into their own hands to great success. Undoctored documents this movement and helps readers navigate becoming “undoctored” themselves.  To that end, here are some simple steps that Dr. Davis recommends to people who are looking to bring the DIY spirit to their own health.

One half of all American adults have at least one chronic disease and one in four have two. 86% of all healthcare spending is on chronic disease. Obviously, there is a lot of room for improvement and Dr. Davis hopes his message will fall on receptive ears. Dr. Davis recognizes that there is a role for traditional healthcare in fighting acute illnesses, cancer, accidents, and hereditary diseases, but he is most concerned with the chronic conditions that take up so much healthcare bandwidth and do not seem to improve despite the growth in our knowledge about how to fight them.

Show Highlights:

-Agriculturists and geneticists changed wheat to semi-dwarf varieties with hybridization and chemical mutagenesis. Increase in glycoprotein content increases appetite; wheat is now more inflammatory.

-People stop eating wheat despite their doctor’s advice to the contrary and get better in spite of their doctor.

-Before grains, primitive people had tooth decay in 1-3% of teeth. After eating grains, populations had tooth decay in 16-49% of teeth, increase in bone disease, decrease in height, iron deficiency.

-Wheat is not GMO but does contain glyphosate, which is sprayed on it as a dessicant at harvesting.

-Wheat germ agglutenin (WGA) is highly toxic, makes the blood clot.

-Paleo diet – reverting back to the way people used to eat for the first 99.6% of their time on this planet.

-Hunter-gathers do not have diseases of civilization. No diabetes, no heart disease, no high blood pressure, no arthritis, no UC, no colon cancer, no skin rashes, no psychiatric disease. They don’t eat seeds of grasses, sugar, toxic oils.

-Seeds of grasses are foods of desperation.

-People think doctors know best. But health care is really a business. Consumes 17.5% of GDP. A huge wealth transfer. Most doctors are employees of hospital and get paid a percent of procedures. Decision makers in the health system are predatory; they are looking to make money off you with often unneeded procedures.

-Not recommending you diagnose yourself. Employ a compendium of strategies. Empowering health information and consumer technology now available. Doctors montetize health with things like statin drugs instead of educating.

-Data that backs up statin drug use is mostly marketing. Recommended diet contributes to heart disease.

-Suggested tests: advanced lipoprotein (NMR) testing, lipoprotein A, fasting glucose, HbA1c, 25-OH Vitamin D, full thyroid panel (not just TSH).

-Recommended websites include Dr. Davis’ websites, data tracking facilities, CureTogether.com, PatientsLikeMe.com.

-Broda Barnes basal body method for determining thyroid function is good, but armpit temperature is wildly inaccurate and can be 2-4 degrees off. Rectal temp is most accurate but inconvenient. Oral temp is most convenient; want oral temp of 97.3. Take iodine, track if it raises basal temperature.

-Followed Dr. Esselstyn’s diet years ago with bad results. Those type of diets regress endothelial dysfunction, but didn’t regress atherosclerotic plaque. Is a style of eating inconsistent with human adaptation.

-Joel asks if oils can be heated? Keep oil temp below 350. Can boil, saute, stir fry, bake below 350. Broiling, barbeque, deep frying have higher temps that are damaging to the oil.

-Heart plaque is caused by excess LDL, due to eating grains and sugars, which induce high blood sugars and inflammation. Sucrose, fructose, coconut sugar are bad sugars. There are good sweetener alternatives.

-Net cap of 15 grain of carbs per meal.

-Doctor is least informed person about diet in the room.

-Potatoes – when baked, mashed, become pure sugar. Eat them raw.

-Avoid anything that disrupts bowel flora, such as chlorinated water, antibiotics.

and more!

    Please, please..could something be done about that soundcloud form of archiving the audio of the radio shows….It’s just impossible to download them as before. I think this is because with soundcloud you cannot download to mobile device for listening at a later time. . Anyway Ill keep trying …thanks to you guys for such supreme content…Regards from old Europe.

    This doctor’s basic information is true, but it is not entirely correct.
    First, modern wheat was specifically hybridized to withstand high aluminum and high manganese soils, which is released when the rain began to be more acidic. Since we decided to not fix the problem with re-alkalizing, the wheat now has high-manganese (and Al). For example, one slice of bread will have >40% DV of manganese.

    With manganese over-exposure (and low Fe and Ca in the food as well, which inhibit Mn absorption), comes Lyme disease (hence the epidemic).

    He is correct about glyphosate in non-organic wheat. Dangerous stuff. Glyphosate has the highest affinity for copper (then zinc). Just research the stability constants. So all the copper and zinc which help keep Mn and Fe in balance are now bound up ( and they make Cu-Zn SOF, which is MUCH more prevalent in the human body than Mn-SOD.

    Wheat, and grasses have been utilized for 2000+ years as a nessesary carbohydrate source. It also prevents mercury from accumulating, as gluten bonds mercury in the GI tract, removing it from enterohepatic recirculation, and depositing much-needed copper and zinc. Gluten was actually a prescription for mercury overdose 200 years ago. Again, go look at the research as to what happens when somebody stops gluten with mercury exposure. It isn’t good.

    Lastly, for the wheat to be beneficial, it has to be properly fermented. Modern wheat has been sprayed with amorphous silicon dioxide nanoparticle crystals (more recently) and diotomacious earth (in the past), and does not have to be disclosed (or labeled), as long as it’s added to an unfinished foodstuffs. Not only does it kill humans (slowly), it kills bugs. However, when wheat proteins are coated with silica, yeast cannot fully ferment it, and when ingested, it becomes a poison. It stimulates the immune system to react toward the proteins, and then you get protein deficiency symptoms, which could lead anywheee. I’m not making this up, read the GRAS on SiO2; it more than doubles the risk of a random assortment of diseases.

    When a person with type A blood is starved of the proteins (because they are now allergic to them) their heritage has digested perfectly for 2000+ years, they have problems.

    It’s obvious this doctor hasn’t done enough research, and needs a chemistry lesson or two (plus some immunology lectures). Organic, properly fermented, ancient wheat from fresh sources is the #1 food for people with type A blood, hands down. By the way, European wheat is not sprayed with silica nanoparticles, so it is all safe.

    This doctor probably has type B blood, so wheat would be very bad for him. At around the 45min mark, he describes what happened to him while eating type A foods. I’ve had the complete opposite happen to me after I switched to wheat. And I have XRays proving that 5 cavities disappeared, and I’m in the best shape of my life.

    He needs to do a little more research, stop pushing a certain agenda, or redefine his audience.

    I will also mention one thing I forgot: I went back and studied what my ancestors ate when they were in poland: vegetarian type A foods.

    They only ate meat 2-5 times per year, and they all lived into their 90’s, disease free. It is completely untrue that all humans are designed for continuous animal product ingestion, and Dr. D’Adamo has been the closest to recommending specific. foods for people.

    James isnt there evidence that human beings during the hunting and gathering, pre-grain era, were healthier from dental records , height etc? Have you gone to Dr Davis Facebook page to challenge him on these issues?
