Dr. William Davis in Denver. Pictures!

Dr. Davis, author of Wheat Belly, gave a lecture in Denver tonight. His message was familiar to regular readers of his blog and books: it's not just gluten and it's not just celiac disease--there are many components of wheat that damage human health from every angle, from mental health to dental health and heart disease to autoimmune illness. He took some questions from the audience, but first, let's look at the charge that some have made that Dr. Davis is overweight:

Dr. William Davis at the University of Denver, August 19, 2013.
He looks trim to me.
Some questions from the audience, and Dr. Davis's answers, paraphrased:

Q: How does wheat elimination help heart disease?
A: What drives plaque is small LDL, and what drives small LDL is grain and sugar.
Q: What about being vegetarian?
A: Maximize what's left. (Dr. Davis recounted his own vegetarian experience after hearing Dr. Dean Ornish, and recalled that he ended up diabetic.)
Q: Why are so many doctors not getting the message about wheat elimination?
A: Some doctors are catching on, but basically, there's no money in good health. Sick care is where the profit's at.
Q: Are you still practicing cardiology?
A: Yes, but Dr. Davis has cut way back to focus on writing and lecturing.
Q: Is it OK for kids to go wheat-free?
A: Yes, as long as your kids are Homo sapiens and not ruminants.

Dr. Davis said he's working on two more books: 30-minute recipes and Wheat Belly Perfect Health for those really tough cases (like mine) that need more than wheat elimination. He hinted at problems with dairy protein (which I have), so I'm looking forward the second book.

He's very good at getting his message across in front of an audience. He also said that saturated fat was good. Praise the lard!

COVID Vaccines Altering Blood Sugar, Electrolyte Balance

"My insulin requirements skyrocketed after being vaccinated," writes Steve Kirsch . Kirsch says he's a type 2 diabetic who controls his blood sugar with insulin, and didn't understand why his need for insulin suddenly changed. But he found a small study of people who used the Chinese SinoVac vaccine which showed healthy volunteers' HBA1C all went up--in some cases, to prediabetic levels . From the study, To our surprise, quite consistent increases in HbA1c levels were observed in healthy volunteers, regardless of whether they belonged to cohort A or B. By day 28 post the 1st inoculation, three out of 11 individuals reached the prediabetic range (Fig. ​(Fig.2c).2c ). By days 42 and 90, medium HbA1c levels appeared to revert back, yet were still significantly higher than those before vaccination. Kirsch isn't alone. Dr. Richard Bernstein, an author, researcher and clinician with type 1 diabetes who pioneered home blood sugar testing, says his blood sugar droppe

Ivermectin for my Cold: How it Went

Disclaimer: please note I'm not a medical professional.  Last week I took ivermectin for what turned out to be a cold. I'd been feeling tired and had a little congestion, but didn't feel sick until Monday morning. I took a COVID test Tuesday (the soonest I could get one), and Tuesday evening started taking ivermectin.  I immediately felt better. Maybe there was a placebo effect; maybe it really started working that fast. Still, I got very tired early in the evening Tuesday and Wednesday, which is unusual for me, and had a runny nose. But the mildly miserable feeling you get when you're fighting a cold was gone. I am still coughing, but it's a dry, itchy cough. The only other cold remedies I took were a few doses of Mucinex and lots of cough drops. I felt well enough yesterday to go out in the cold and plant some fountain grass. I'd have planted the 15 coral bell plants I bought on sale, but it got dark. Today has been snowy and windy.  The ivermectin affected my

Vaccine Mandate Stayed in Court

Alex Berenson reports the 5th Circuit Court has issued an emergency stay of Biden's vaccine mandate. I'm celebrating with a fat, juicy mushroom Swiss burger, a green salad with full-fat Caesar dressing a some French lentil salad (need the prebiotic fiber!). Looks like the truckers will keep on hauling in dairy from Iowa (Kalona butter is the best!) and tasty produce from Mexico, since truckers have been declared exempt from the mandate.  There's a burger under there. Tonight, after moving some outdoor plants on this beautiful day, I'm putting on my Sassy Mauve lipstick and going out. The chin-strokers, the busybodies, the just-enough-booksmarts-to-cause-trouble coronabros who want clot shots for all and masks forever can kiss my behind.

"Trusting the Science" Cringe

"We trusted the science!" This is what I keep hearing when I watch videos made by vaccine victims' next of kin. I cringe every time. I have nothing but sympathy for little Maddie, now in a wheelchair after participating in one of the trials , and others like her . But science is a process , not a corporation, not a government committee, and not a product. It's done best dispassionately and without perverse incentives--not in the middle of a major panic. You need data to have science you can trust, and the data simply weren't there. Getting an experimental injection has no more to do with trusting the science than smoking on the advice of your doctor to lose weight or calm your nerves did back in the 50s.  Ah, but the vaccines were tested! In fact, they're still in the middle of phase 3 trials, which aren't scheduled to end for another two years. Pfizer's trial was unblinded at six months--meaning there's no longer a control group  that hasn't

COVID Test Result is In

I don't have COVID.  On the one hand, it would have been a relief to have finally caught COVID and gotten natural antibodies, especially from having a mild case of it. On the other hand, I was concerned about my dog catching it from me (he's healthy, but nine years old) and it might have interfered with Thanksgiving plans.  Until I'm well, I'll stay home.
