The doctor stated the mystery disease and told me that I could...

Los Angeles, California
in 1999, I realized I was eating smarter than most bipeds who begged for my 'secrets'. That began a huge, wonderful journey and third career, nutrition. It's not about popping more pills, rather it's eating real pure foods to avoid as many pills as possible. Doing so helped me recover from an often untreatable dementia. The lightbulb in my head was dimmed for months (semi-comatose), but the...

I also wanted to spread the word that untreated celiac disease can lead to other autoimmune diseases, so eating gluten free is not only key to controlling current symptoms, but is crucial for prevention of the future "triggering" of autoimmune disorders. By December 2008 I...
